Fresh Ink

My tattoo appointment was at 5pm, so I went a little early – just because I wasn’t sure where the shop was located. I found it easily enough, but couldn’t find parking so I ended up parking at Tims and walking down. When I got in, the receptionist/assistant told me that the tattoo artist {M} was just finishing up with a client and he wouldn’t be long at all.

Well, 2 hours later he finished up with the client. I would have left for a bit and gotten food but every single time I asked she told me “any minute now” so I didn’t want to leave and make him late. It was fine, whatever…the only downer part was that I was starving and could have gone for eats several times.

Any who, so 3 hours and 45 minutes after I arrived {I KNOW RIGHT} we finally got to work on my tattoo. It took so long because M had to set up the station and answer a billion phone calls because the receptionist left. No big deal, M was super awesome and friendly too.

I actually really loved getting my forearm tattooed. Like, it didn’t hurt at all. It felt good. Except for the shading, that was slightly painful.

So, in summary: the tattoo artist, M, was awesome but I could have gone without the 3 hour and 45 minute wait.

But the results are beautiful.

    Sheesh, I’m glad my guy doesn’t keep me waiting that long! At least he did a nice job. I’m getting a forearm tattoo — you know, as soon as I’m not broke anymore. 😀

    • What of!?

      I love my tattoos. Well…most of them. Not the “free” ones I was stupid enough to get. I have a fave artist down South from back home, but I thought it’d be cool to get a tattoo from a different artist – different style, different techniques, etc. You know?
