    Default Back piece - Left hand side

    I thought i'd put a few pictures up of my most recent tattoo.


    I got this done on New years eve (31/12/2013) after a discussion with my tattoo artist (Gee @ Equilibirium BM) we had decided a tattoo would be a more favorable option then the original scarification that I was originally planning to get instead of the tattoo.

    Day started off with me making my way over to the shop which is around an hours drive from my home. Parked up and went into the shop, was greeted by Lina & Gee, I had arrived an hour early just to hang out while other mods were being undertaken however both had not shown up, so we were able to start straight away. Luckily we had already found some photos originally from when I went to get my frenum piercing done so most of our research had been done, we were then just discussing the final design and what bits I would prefer from which photo.

    Once we had that out the way I then got prepared for the drawing due to the size, mixture of images and I fancied a free hand tattoo so we chose that option. This took around an hour including prep to which I then laid on the bed and got ready.

    It has been several years since I got my last tattoo and I had completely forgotten the sesnsation of the process, it became a tad uncomfortable at first but was able to be bearable, most parts were fine besides the odd patch on my ribs, with closer and over my spine being slightly more noticeable. We had to stop briefly after an hour as I had drunk a ridiclous amount of lemon tea during the design and freehand section, after this I carried on for another 2 hours until just after 18:00

    As the tattoo in general and size of it I currently most prefer it, whether thats because its a novelty or because it is so fresh in my mind I don't know.

    but as i ramble i'll let the photos do the talking or not

    Free hand design being started



    Freehand design finished



    Combination of the second photo and finished article for now



    I'm already booked in for the next session at the end of january with an estimated 4 hours, so i shall try do it all in one sitting


    Hope you like it.

    Thank you both, i'm not entirely sure what he has planned for the rest. We have chosen on the bark design and others, but i'm giving him a fair amount of play within the work, he knows what I like, and as the tattooist he'll be able to know what will look better and suit me more.

    I really like it! I love a well done tree tattoo!
    Is it going to be in colour or black and grey?
    (sorry if you've said and I missed it but I reread the posts to check and my fuzzy brain didn't tell me it had been mentioned before)
