it has to be redone again… i don’t know if that’ll be for free like last time, i hope so but i’m not sure. I decided I won’t get any new tattoos until my first one is perfect and complete.
i decided i want it black now. last time the tattooist did it dark brown, but it ended up grey-ish. blah.
i’ll get my next tattoo at a local shop, so i don’t have to travel ages before i’m there.
Well, I’ve had it redone, it still isn’t perfect but much better tahn it was at first, and it hurt a lot less than the 1st time as well :)
So now I have ideas for the 2nd tattoo :)
Well, i got it now, it’s pretty and it hurt quite a bit. i have to let the tattooist redo some parts as they came out too light. I’m not really happy about that, because i’m scared of the pain… now i know what it feels like, i don’t want to go there again. i mean, after one time you hope the tattoo is ready, i still want other tattoos but i feel like i’ve had enough pain for this one already. but i’ll just have to be tough ;)
I found the best tattooist at a convention in march. Last week I met him again. I made an appointment, to have it done on my birthday, which is the 30st of august. it’ll be the original design, which i made over a year ago. He only has to draw it on my foot, because that way it’ll look best and flow with the shape of my body. I feel now that it’s serious and real now. I’m not extremely excited yet, but i know this will be a birthday to remember forever. :)
Not even two weeks after my last entry, i realised i did still want the original design. So i’m getting it. in august, at my birthday. so i still have some time to think about it. but i don’t think that’ll be necessary…
anyway, august it’ll be
FUCK the 1 year rule. I had this design for a tat and I told myself I’d have it tattooed in a year, not earlier. Just in case, so the chance for regretting it, would get very very small. But (you can guess it), I don’t like it anymore by now. I have a new idea. Should I wait for a few more months? Or should I just get it? I sent an e-mail to this tattooist, he’s really great but he lives and works in Amsterdam. I really want him to do my tattoo so I’m visiting the shop saturday (now this sat. but the next). Just wanna see what he thinks of it…
they say once you start it grabs you…. well they were right. i haven’t even finished the design of my 1st tattoo yet, but i’m already making ideas for a second, third, fourth….
on the 1 hand, this scares me from actually really getting my 1st tattoo… on teh other hand, it makes me feel that i don’t have to wait until may 2006…
but well, first things first, so i’ll continue drawing
so now i know what it’s going to be, i’m drawing and drawing and something good will come out eventually…
i also found a good tattoo-artist, about 2,5 hrs by train from here but he’s the best in holland. so now i have to finish the design and then, in may 2006, it’ll be there, on my left foot… yay!
...one that fits me, one I won’t regret, one that’s still beautiful in 10 years and in 50 years….
