I currently have three tattoos: one on my left thigh, one on my back and another on the inside of my right ankle.
Now, I am fully aware that by no means does this make me an expert, but I’m going to talk you through each of my tattoo ‘experiences’ anyway, and I hope you enjoy.
All of my tattoos have been done by Kerrie at Insignia Tattoo and she is fab – if you’re looking for a tattoo artist in and around Milton Keynes definitely check out her work!
Tattoo number one is this pretty, not-so-little elephant on my thigh. It was uncomfortable (obviously, it was done with a needle) but not too painful until it got closer to my inner thigh and it took around two hours.
I like to describe the feeling of this tattoo as being like constant cat scratches and it was definitely the least painful one that I’ve had so far.
I don’t really have a set reason or meaning behind this tattoo, I like elephants and I think it’s cool and pretty, which is good enough for me!
At the top of my back I have these gorgeous feathers, beads and my Grandmother’s birth date in Roman numerals. I love this tattoo; it means a lot to me and I still think that it’s beautiful.
This one was a lot more painful, especially on the more intricate details which are done with a smaller needle and it took about an hour and 45 minutes.
I still smile when I catch a glimpse of my feathers in the mirror – this one might just be my favourite.
My most recent tattoo is a reminder to just go with the flow, and stop being such a stress ball.
I always used to say I’d never get a tattoo with colour but the splashes of blue in this one really make it for me and I can’t wait until summer when I can get out of my jeans and show it off a bit more!
This one took about 45 minutes in total and was so, so painful. Apparently ones close to the end of limbs always are.
There’s obviously a nerve or something around that part of my leg that the needle kept going over, too, as I couldn’t stop my foot from twitching!
I love all of my tattoos, I’m dead happy with them and can’t imagine regretting them anytime soon, or at all.
I hope you enjoyed this post!
