Last Saturday, I got a tattoo. I've been tweeting about this for days, so I figured I'd go on and post it on the blog. Anyway, it here it is...
It's mostly healed, with just a little bit of the skin still recovering (in the Aries symbol). It's about 3"x2" an on my left wrist. It's my very first one, and I don't know if I see myself getting more. The pain was un-(excuse me)-fucking-real. Seriously. I knew it would hurt and I'd heard it being compared to a "bee sting", but that was one big ass bee that just sat on my wrist. :/ LOL.
I got it for a simple reason... to be a reminder of the promises I made to myself at the beginning of the year. It's to remind myself that I need to change. Hence the butterfly wings. Plus, I'm a hot-headed, impulsive, bitchy Aries, so I thought it was perfect. :)
At first, I hated it. I noticed every little imperfection and I was so afraid that I'd made a bad decision, because it was larger than I wanted and quite frankly, felt like I'd put my arm in a blender. Now at a week out, I must say that I love it. :)
As for those promises? As of yesterday morning, I'd lost 12 lbs! Still a LONG way to go, but it's a start.
