Yes, sometimes pms makes me even more of a tiger… but that's not what I am referring to πŸ™‚

I finally decided on going for the colour on my tiger, and the blossoms… it has come out so unbelievably well that S said he gets goosebumps looking at it, and he's the one who did the work!
Just the white to go, in the tiger, and his beautiful eyes… and then he's all done…
and i can start working on the next!!

i am a lucky woman…
i can't wait to see him again.

so I got new ink… finally got my tiger tattoo that I've been wanting since I was about 16 years old…
it's beautiful.
it's a work of art.
it's not finished – but it's already a source of pride for me, and for my friend S, the tattooist.
his best work yet…
it took 7 hours in total, with breaks for tea and stretching and for lunch (thanks M!)
about 5 or 6 hours of tattoo time…

I am proud of myself – for sitting quietly and remembering to breathe…
I missed my man… desperately… but not because i was scared… because i was just so filled with endorphins, and felt good and wanted to share the moment with him…

Just got shading and the colour to go – beautiful vibrant oranges and yellows, and whites, for my tiger, and reds and dusky pinks for the blossoms.. the rest will be black and white and however S wants to do it – it's his artwork, just my skin πŸ™‚

I even got a "ah, that's very nice" from my mother… *wide eyes*…

I am almost done "scabbing"… i heal really quickly.. so i'm hoping to start the colour and shading in the next week or so… i can't WAIT!

I'm already planning my NEXT tats! Now that I know i _can_ handle the pain, etc, without getting wobbly or silly… i have so many ideas, and a willing tattooist!
