My Tattoo Experience


As mentioned in yesterday's post I finally got my tattoo done! 

Being something that I've wanted for a long time (I'm talking years here....) once I was 18 I started looking around at tattoo parlours in Brighton and where I live. Last weekend me and my sister popped down to Brighton for a consultation with a guy from a parlour that we'd both been to before. But he said that he wouldn't be able to do it the size a want (this one here is perfect size, roughly 5 cms) and would have to do it double the size above!! Some tattooists are picky about what they do and what size etc but even so I wasn't exactly happy! 

In the end after my sister's searching we found a parlour in our home town with good reviews and able to do my tattoo for me. Even though I didn't feel amazing when it was getting done, I'm pretty glad that I went through with it now. 

This image is just under two days since I've had it done, so its surprisingly calm but I know the scabbing is yet to come! They recommend nappy rash cream to keep it moisturised, so it was slightly awkward to say the least when I had to ask for it in Sainsbury's! At the moment it's still slightly swollen along the shading part, which hurt the most, but it'll settle soon. 

I've always been obsessed with swallows, so it just made sense really. For me, swallows mean loyalty, as they always fly home and stay true to themselves. It's always associated with sailors and representing their travelling, but it also said that if a sailor drowns, their swallow will carry their souls to heaven, which I want my tattoo to represent too. 

What do you guys think of it? Would you ever get a tattoo done? If so what would you get?
