First of all, forgive the terrible photos below - it's not easy to photograph your own right arm with a phone, even with the aid of a mirror. I will of course post a clear photo when it's all healed up, but I couldn't wait to share this now - especially since those of you who follow me on Instagram and the like have already seen it.
The middle photo was taken about two thirds of the way through yesterday's sitting, when I got up to have a stretch, and Simon ran his idea of the blue by me. It's probably just because of my AS, but in each of the three tattooing sessions I've had, the pain from keeping my body still is way worse than the actual pain of the needle!
I love love love how it looks with the blue background - eventually I think I'll be adding to this arm, so I didn't want anything too border-y if that makes sense. I can't wait until it's healed so I can post some better pictures - the detail on her headgear especially is so perfect.
