black ink

this is now part of me:



my first tattoo. an archimedean spiral. after about 18 years of "i would like a tattoo, but ...", i decided on this design on wednesday and had it done today (at mona lisa studio). and i am very, very happy with it!

Very cool, Michi! Wish I had the guts. Did it hurt a lot?

michi said...

thanks, cheryl! and no, it did not hurt much at all. in fact, i nearly fell asleep. compared to what some dentists had to do to me, this was absolutely nothing. i am sure this won't be my last.

So cool! I'm getting my first tattoo when I turn 39 this fall. It's time.

michi said...

That’s a very nice tattoo. I must say that although I usually don’t like tattoos as meaningless shapes, your tattoo is very special. It looks like a shape with some kind of meaning, as it represents something. I love it. At the beginning it looks creepy, but it will be better after your skin will be less red and swollen. You need to put antibiotic cream. I know this from my experience, for I have five tattoos. Well, congratulations for your new tattoo, you'll enjoy it for the rest of your life. I promise you you'll not regret.
