    Oooh never had one feel cold, mine are usually warm!

    Also the "scabbing" should just be light and flake off, make sure it doesn't dry out too much and there's no thick scabs forming.

    Some of mine have been feeling kind of cold in the healing process. I just used my usual routine with keeping it moist and they all scabbed over and healed fine. I don't think it's something you should be too worried about

    Although I want to start a half sleeve, I've been thinking lately that I want to get the Shakespeare quote on the top of my back covered. I was thinking maybe with some realistic roses...

    I've fallen in love with this apprentice's work, especially her flowers. She's done a piece on my sister's partner and it's so detailed and crisp even though she's an apprentice. She's called Dannii Tyler and she's from south-east (i think...) London. I'd definitely consider getting a piece by her, ideally the floral style she does.

    I'm especially in love with her tattoos (the massive chest/shoulder flowers) and her realistic work that she's done.

    I got my new tattoo today!!! And I LOVE it! Yaaay I just got home and cleaned it so it's a bit swollen now. Will post pic when swelling has gone down. My artist was so nice and she did a really good job (she's an apprentice). The lines are very straight and it just looks very elegant.

    I know the feeling. I had the itch before yesterday as well. But when are you having your next? I think I read some place on here something about it being delayed for some reason? I don't quite remember.

    I've bitten the bullet and my sister's boyfriend gave me her email address yesterday, I've emailed her today. I can't wait to get this sorted, I'm so excited. It feels like the right time to get one!
