My friends were meant to take me to get my tattoo on the Saturday but the place was booked out so I went back Sunday morning with my mum and got it. Surprisingly, the tattoo didn't hurt. It wasn't a comfortable feeling - it did feel like something was going in and out of my skin but it wasn't painful. Afterwards they put the plastic on and taped it so it wouldn't get infected or anything which actually hurt more than the tattoo because it was pulling at my skin awkwardly.
I got an equilateral triangle outline simply because I like it. To me my tattoo symbolises "balance, strength and stability". Triangles are actually one of the strongest shapes. I like my tattoo, it's dainty and perfect for what I wanted. I really want to get one on my other arm that's the same size except facing the other way and coloured in. I'm lucky that my tattoo is kind of hidden most of the time because people asking me what it means would drive me crazy!
Overall, it was a great experience. I think some people are scared of the tattoo artists but mine was great! She was so funny and we just chatted about how we were both scared of the dentist. Would definitely go back to her again.
I'd love to hear about your tattoos if you have any or what you would think of getting! Or maybe you're completely against tattoos altogether, would love to hear why in the comments below.
