This is beautiful!
How bad did it hurt?
I'm looking to get one in the same area soon.

people seemed to think it would hurt a lot, but it actually wasn't bad at all. The poetry was one of the least painful spaces. The closer to the armpit/nipple they got though, the more it hurt! Seven hours on my chest didn't hurt nearly as bad as one on the top of my foot!

Okay, thanks! That's good to hear.
What I'm getting is pretty simple, two colors, so hopefully it shouldn't take 7 hours.
I had just heard from some people that it vibrated the bones of your torso and made you feel sick. I guess it just depends on the person.

So you drew the art yourself before having it tattooed?
bthslayr's avatar
yep. My 1/2 sleeve should be done in the next couple months, I'll post that too

It's beautiful. Art is great, I'm extremely jealous that you can draw that yourself cause I'm currently looking for someone to design me a tattoo of a similar nature and having shit all luck. :(

Nice colour too, it's so well done. Lucky!

I am available for just that sort of thing you know....
