Otherwise Uneventful Day
It was an otherwise uneventful day. I got to sleep in this morning because I took a day of vacation. I didn't really have anything special planned, but I wanted to take the day off so I could get a few things done.
Saturday was my birthday and I sat for four hours getting a tattoo cover-up. It's not finished, and I'll have to go back and get some detail work done, but it looks pretty darn good right now. The first picture, the upside down one, that's the before picture. The second picture is the outline, work in progress. The final picture is where we stopped after four hours. Did it hurt? You bet it did. Anyone who tells you a tattoo doesn't hurt is a liar. And I have a pretty high pain threshold. It swelled up and turned red. Which is normal. There's this stuff she put on it called Hustle Butter. Best. Stuff. Ever. It smells incredible and as soon as she smoothed it on, the redness and swelling eased.
