So, I finally got my first tattoo, Friday night my brothers and I all got one and I'm proud to say that I did not chicken out at the last moment like I thought I might. What did I get, you ask? Well I was going to get the Deathly Hallows symbol on my forearm but since I'm only 17 they would only do it somewhere that can be covered by clothing and so I got the Mockingjay symbol on my uperarm, and its awesome. Firstly, let us address the most important question - Did it hurt? Yes, It hurt like hell. I think in ways its not as bad as you think its going to be but also its worse than you think it will be, if that makes sense. It feels like a knife is cutting into your skin over and over, at least in the worse parts but in other parts you can barely feel it, at least that was my experience, luckily they have to take a break every few minutes to get more ink or to wipe up the extra ink and everything so it gives you a break from the pain. For the most part I held my breath while I was getting tattooed and then when she would take a break I would finally take a breathe. So yeah, painful definitely but worth it. So, the pictures kinda suck so I'll get better ones later and post them then but here's one for now.
It's not my fault, you try and take a picture of your own arm not using a mirror and with just the camera on your phone, go on I'll wait. =)
