ferrumaeternum: (cherry blossoms)
Number of hours for this session: 2.5
Total number of hours tattooed so far: 46.5

This was done over a month ago, but I haven’t had time to get a picture taken until this weekend. Since it’s been so long, the good news it that you can see it completely healed. Lane used a normal-sized shading needle this time, so the pain was a lot more manageable. I also think getting the upper back tattooed hurts a lot less in general than the lower back. Even though all the vibrations over the bones are annoying, there are less nerve endings, so it’s not quite as sensitive. I watched the movie Heaven while I was at the studio, which I thought was really good and helped distract me. There was a little bit of gray shading near the lantern that didn’t quite get finished, so that’ll be added next time. Lane will also be brightening up some of the old cherry blossoms on the branch to create a sense of depth, putting some yellow shading around the glowing lantern, and finishing the gray shading on my butt. I’m definitely looking forward to going back in a couple of weeks!
