Number 12 happened today. Danny at Electric Soul Tattoo created a fabulous design for me with just a little guidance. I initially sent him 4 or 5 inspirational photos all in the American traditional or neo-trad style, gave him a body location, an approximate amount I would like to spend, and said I like things that are colorful and symmetrical.
I got to my appointment today having no idea what he was putting together, but as soon as I saw his design, I loved it. We briefly discussed colors, i was indecisive but on board, and we got started.
The initial plan was to do the black ink and if I wanted to tap out after that, we could finish another day. But it was barely more than uncomfortable, so two hours later we were done.
The biggest challenge? Breathing slowly and regularly without taking big belly-moving inhales.
Anyway, here’s the moth he did for me back in December, and the new piece right below it. 🙂
