My First Tattoo

For some time, Pandy had prepped me for the ink work that I wanted done and what to expect. She even assisted me with locations of shops I could go to and the artists she liked and also went to.

Her and I made our way to Metamorph Studios on the northside of town, inching through traffic. She made sure I wasn't hungry at all, and coached me one final time before we stepped foot inside.
In no time at all after entering the shop, I was sending over my idea to my first tattoo artist, Julian. And moments after that? I was trying to hold my excitement to fill in paperwork.

Soon enough, the letters became etched into my skin. It didn't hurt as much as I thought, and the finger tattoos ached in a few spots. Julian made the experience enjoyable, cracking jokes and even pulling a face for a picture.

Serious pictures only, of course!


Thank you so much Pandy and Julian for my first tattoo session!

Notes to keep in mind
・Find a reputable shop and avoid dinky little places. Infections and crappy art isn't worth it, and you get what you pay for.
・ This day and perhaps the day before as well is NOT the time to fast or forego meals. Getting a tattoo on an empty stomach can make the pain feel worse.
・ Make sure all spelling and line work is correct. No regerts on the work you want done!
・ Keep your tattoo clean and moisturized.

Share your favorite tattoo that you have or would like to get! I'd like to see!
