So this is my very first tattoo!!! I got this done three days ago on January 4th at Monsters In Ink in Everett Washington. My tattoo artist is Jeromy Sawdon. He has over 11 years of experience and the man is a genius with art!!! You can check out his stuff and his tattoo portfolio here www.jeromysawdon.com It was an amazing experience I must say. Other than the fact that I told everyone that had come with me to fuck off since they weren't helping distract me at all, it was fun. His girlfriend, who works the front desk, was there and she is awesome to talk to.
I hope you like my tattoo!!! I certainly do!!! I'll be posting fully healed picks when it's fully healed!
So first top left is the stencil that he used. It was pretty cool how it was put on. The liquid he used as a disinfectant smelled funny. Then the second picture is when he just finished the grey fur and he was working on Satsuki's dress. Obviously I was bleeding lol. I had to get up because my knee was hurting so bad from being scrunched up and tensed most of the time while he was doing the color. (Coloring hurts more than the outlining for me lol.)
Third pick bottom left is when he finished Mei's dress and was working on the fur on Totoro's belly and their skin tones.
Finally the bottom right picture is the finished product. Right after he was finished so there is some ink that shouldn't be lol. Like in Mei's face, BUT! All in all I love the finished product and I can't wait to go back to him to get my BVB tattoo done
