    Default New roses thigh piece

    I'm insanely excited as tomorrow I've got a 4 hour session booked in with a hyperrealist artist for a thigh tattoo.
    It's a design I've drawn up myself of a rose with a couple of leaves behind and some rose buds. I'll write a post tomorrow night of the experience and include photos.

    all the reasons you're alone?
    If the seeds were planted firm my dear
    would the branches tear it all apart?

    It's all done! Took nearly 4 hours. The first 20 minutes was quite painful but then I soon found that I got used to it- the last half hour was really painful though as the artist was going over and over some lines to give definition. But I'm SO pleased with it, could not be happier!

    The drawing looks lovely - I'm sure the real thing must be beautiful.
    I can completely understand your reasons for getting this tattoo - well done on learning to accept yourself for who you are and what you have, it's a very difficult thing to do and many people never manage it.

    Thanks guys. It's a bit red and tender this morning but the swelling's gone down. I'll take another one in the next few days and when it's totally healed too
