I finally did it! And it was excruciating! For the entire 2 and a half hours. But what's funny is that now what hurts most is my upper thigh on my left leg from laying on my side with my other foot tucked underneath. But that's feeling better too.
So I didn't get what I had originally planned- I wanted a full-bodied snow leopard wrapped on the outside of my left ankle with the tail wrapped around the inside like an anklet. But my ankle was just too small to do that. I had previously decided that if they wouldn't do that, I wouldn't get it done. But after I saw the drawing the tattoo artist had sketched for me, I liked that even better. It is just a head and shoulders shot, and lots of detail. And bright green eyes like I wanted too. :) You wouldn't have been able to see any eye color if it was a full snow leopard wrapped around my ankle. Okay- enough blabbing- here's the photo, but I wouldn't advise blowing it up because you can see how red and bloody and swollen it is in detail. The color will look more natural once the redness goes away and it heals. I promise to post another photo in a couple weeks, and you can look at that one up close. What do you think? Nutcase? Like it?
Thanks Jessica for taking like a hundred photos of my bony ankle to get this one good shot!
