Wow, it took 4 hours and hurt here and there but it’s now done and will be there till I die…you can see it on my photo if you are curious: It’s says ‘Special Today: Sushi Half Price’ (just kidding!)

I never realized that getting a tattoo could be so easy and yet complex…
It turns out that the design I wanted may not fit on my arm so I may have to omit or ‘scrunch up’ some letters, it’s a year old Buddhist chant written in Japanese(Nam Myoho Renge Kyo)that I have practiced for over 20 years…so I reckon I will probably feel OK about it in 20 years time.
I have been told to not have it too visible (to me) so I don’t get fed up of looking at it, and that they do tend to fade (from pitch black to darkish gray) in the first month or so.
I am quite looking forward to it: It’s going to take up to 3 hours to do apparently…
This is more or less how it will look.
Have finished designing my tatoo and today is my first session, so maybe I won’t be a flake for the rest of my life after all…just a regular ‘wussie’ with a tatoo!
