    Default First tattoo, finally!

    So I've been um-ing and ah-ing for literally YEARS about a tattoo. I definitely wanted one, but I couldn't decide what or where or how big so I never did anything about it.

    I finally decided earlier this year that I would get my first tattoo as a 30th birthday present to myself. So, I did! It's a bit of an early present, it's not quite my birthday yet.

    One of the three or four things I've been thinking about for all this time was a rose in a sort of stained-glass/Charles Rennie Mackintosh-inspired kind of style. I tossed around the idea of getting a small one on my wrist but in the end decided I'd rather something bigger, and decided on my back. It is in possibly the most awkward place to put Bepanthen on, but I can deal with that.

    I had it done by Cat at Inner Vision Tattoo in Sydney. I was pretty nervous going in because I didn't really know what to expect. She was lovely, though, and made it as easy on me as possible.

    I absolutely love the finished thing! And now I know it's not so bad I'm already contemplating another couple tattoos!

    That's so cool, I love the colours and style and the way it seems to "pop" I've had a similar problem, just can't seem to make a decision!!

    Thanks all!

    I really love the colours. Cat suggested red, but I definitely wanted pink, it's my favourite colour. And it's such a gorgeous pink!
