My First Tattoo: Did It Hurt?

On Friday 3 May I celebrated my 18th birthday and the very next day I ordered my long awaited gift: my very first tattoo!

For those who have commented on my birthday post, I thank you all so much for your wishes and I’m sorry if I didn’t reply to any of you, but there are actually like 30 comments and I wouldn’t write ‘Thank you’ 30 times, although I thank you 1000 times! 🙂

thank you for birthday wishes

Then, some of you have asked the very frequently asked question when someone gets a tattoo, especially for the first time: did it hurt?

My 18th Birthday!

On Friday 3 May 2013, I was finally 18 years old!

Now you’ll know why I wasn’t able to blog until now.

So yeah, on Friday, it was my birthday. I’m not the party-girl type, so I didn’t have a very big party with drinks and evening dresses…

It was better than that.

And that was because we went on our annual educational tour (school outing) on that day! Such a coincidence, right? So we put our pens and copybooks away and headed for the wild forests…

In fact we went to Domaine De Lagrave where we walked among the wilds and climbed on top of a mountain until we thought we would die of exhaustion or cold or… laughter!

My Looking-Glass Self

I’m late again, sorry for that, but I’m rather busy in this beginning of the second term of the school year; anyway, here’s your awaited Picture it & Write for this week:

looking in the mirror

 

“Happy 18th birthday, Lena!”

Their enthusiastic voices still echoed in my head, although the party was over for more than two hours. If I closed my eyes I would see their faded grins and narrow eyes and high cheekbones… I would feel their hands on me, congratulating me, wishing me all the best things in the world.

My Dream Tattoo

Requested by my fellow readers, I’m going to show you my “dream” tattoo, just that it’s not really a dream, but reality: i.e. I’m REALLY going to get my right shoulder (classic place uh? but perfect one for the 1st time :)) tattoed!

Why get a tattoo?

Because of Dan Brown! Yep, that’s his fault 🙂 He’s published The Last Symbol – his latest book – and in it the villain is a lover of tattoos and Dan Brown therefore describes tattooing as a genuine wonderful awesome art… as in fact it IS art! Not only something to show off or to scare or to intimidate (these 3 reasons are very bad ones – if these are the goals you want to reach in getting a tattoo… well you don’t deserve one).

So here’s my tattoo design:

celtic wicca design tattoo

I was inspired by Celtic patterns (google ’em for more info ^^) as I’m very interested in the old religion (now called Wiccan religion), legends and myths… especially surrounding Ireland and Britain, i.e. like Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table 😀 Love to discover and read all of these.

The star is mainly called a pentacle – a very important symbol (for the good) in the old religion.

I hope the photos aren’t too dark and that my drawing (trials to imitate) is not that bad… Of course the tattoo designer will make it more perfect 😉
