getting inked, part 1

After designing and redesigning forEVERR, I finally got my tattoo all figured out. So I made a trip to Lucky Monkey on Saturday to get this thing done!

Here I am with Jesse who redrew my design to be even awesomer than I thought it could be. He's figuring out the placement here.

Transferring the outline on! OMG it's actually happening!

And then oh crap the pain starts. I know it's kinda weird that I am totally laughing but I think that was my slightly hysterical way of dealing with it!

Well at least I had a creepy devil's face on the wall to look at...

...and Mike's hand to squeeze super hard. Note my red and white fingers.

And when the hand squeezing wasn't enough, I clenched my entire body and pressed my foot against Mike's thigh (he was gracious enough to kneel on the linoleum next to me for an hour and a half).

To be continued...!

It looked as if you were enjoying the pain so much. So weird, even though I already heard the story.
