I've never seen someone getting a tat before.

So even if I didn't get one myself, it was a first for me too.

And I feel very honoured to be there with Berit and Monika,
and to share this special moment with them.

And here is the finished result



(Berit - I don´t got a good one of your finished tattoo!)

Today my - and Monikas - tattoo became one week old! I'm so happy to have my beatiful leaf on my arm an in my mind I'm planning for the next one!

I´m also feeling open to the idea of another one. It´s somewhat addictive

Is your tattoo healing properly?

Yes, it is healing fine. I'm so pleased with is. I've started to think about a bracelet now.... 8)

Happy one week birthday, tatoos!   ;D


(I'm sure my soothing songs have something to do with the successful healing....   8))

I'm thinking about my next tat since I got my first one (April 2008). A bracelet has been on my mind for a while. But some day I might want to apply for a job again ... so I'm hesitant about a bracelet.

And happy first week anniversary for you two :).

what a about the pain?
who did go first? How long did it take?


I was surprised how fast it was.
About the pain: depends on what part of your body gets tattooed. But in general, I think people imagine more pain that it is in reality. My tat is on the outside of the upper arm and it almost didn't hurt at all. Only a little bit really.
Greanted, it's one of the less painful areas, but measured by this experience, it can't be too bad in more sensitive areas.

Thought this might be the right place, and my Brokie friends the right audience, to get some FB about my tattoo ideas. :)

Here's some pics of bracelets I like:













The last one is my favorite so far. I like the simplicity of it. The general idea is to get something like twine, but instead of flowers added, I would rather add five leaves. The five leaves would stand for the five members of my family (but of course the association to Five Leaves didn't escape me).

Another idea is a regular tatto, instead of a bracelet. Could be done either on the inside of my wrist upwards (like in the pic). Or a bit higher, but still below the ellbow, and on the outside of my forearm. Or starting on the inside and winding to the outside.

Here's one I like:



What I don't like in this one are the black endings , whatever they're supposed to be. But I like the lines combined with the dots.

One last idea I'm mulling about (for more than two years now :laugh: ::)).

At the Roundup 2008, I bought this pin for my handbag:




This, on the inside of my right wrist. I'm aware that it would not be possible to tattoo all the details, they're too tiny. But a pair of boots, standing like this and with embellishment.


You feedback is welcome! :)
