[37.] Sooo... I got a tattoo ♡

Hello dear readers (^-^)

So... yeah!
A few weeks ago I started a tattoo D:
It was very spontaneous decision, but I've wanted one for a long time.

3 weeks ago, I went to my first appointment.
My friend Ellie is a tattoo artist and did the honours (^-^)!
I've admired her work for a long time.

The stencil on! A bit blurry and with my awful tan :3
 So here I am, in the shop in London.
The stencil is on me!

Finished the first session like this!
 After 5 hours, we finished the first session like this.
I was kinda glad we stopped here, as I had enough at this point!

Ellie is a really amazing tattoo artist.
She was making sure I was OK through the entire session.
She even has a sweetie jar on her workstation in case you're feeling weak!

Ellie's workstation is so colourful!

I think I also felt more comfortable with her doing my first tattoo,
because I already knew her! She was one of my crazy colleagues :3

I paid the whole tattoo up front and then arranged a 2nd session with Ellie.
I came back after 3 weeks so we could be certain the tattoo healed properly!

Finished the 2nd session!
Ellie's photo :3

 After another 5 hours, this is the finished result!
I love it so much ♡ Thank you, Ellie <3

It might not seem like it, but this tattoo has a lot of meaning to me.
It's a representation of my life and all the things I love.
I'm not going to go into too much detail, though!

So yea, if you're in London, please look up Ellie and get a tattoo!
You can view her work at http://instagram.com/lagingerli ♡

Thanks for reading!

  1. That looks amazing! I really want a bigger tattoo (nowhere near as big as yours) but I'm too much of a wimp at the moment.

  7. That looks really pretty, but I'm sure it was painful.

    1. Cheers Noor! It wasn't too bad actually, though there was one bit which stood out most.... the little tea cup, it's a little bit on the ribs and it was the worst pain I've ever felt at that point... not gonna lie, haha!

  8. THAT IS SO AMAZING!! I love the tea pot and cup...you're so brave to get it!!
