    Default My first tattoo - a dotwork adventure in Belgium! (BIG PHOTOS!)

    I got a tattoo on Wednesday, by Dan DiMattia at Calypso Tattoo (in Liege, Belgium), and thought I'd share!

    These photos are from Friday. I was going to take some better ones today but it's currently a bit scabby and itching like a mo'fo. Apart from that I'm really pleased with it.

    Close ups:

    It's on my hip, extends a little onto my ribs and down onto the top of my thigh:


    Thanks for looking

    Thanks!
    Dan is a great guy, and went to a lot of effort to make sure the piece 'fitted' my curves, and changing little bits on the day to make it work better for me.

    Around 7 hours! It's a pretty big piece, and the photos don't do justice to the amount of detail that's in the dotwork. He said over the next few days as it keeps settling down more, the lighter grey areas will continue to get a bit lighter, and make the whole thing pop a bit more
