Tattoo - Foot

I finally got another tattoo last Wednesday, yey! I've been trying to decide what to get for ages, and as it was half term last week, I went out and treated myself.

After much soul searching and trying to find something meaningful to enhance the temple that is my body (as if lol!) I acted a bit out of character, and decided to go with something purely frivolous and trendy...and I cringe as I type, but it's also inspired by someone I don't particularly love....Nicole Richie ...arrrrggghhh!

Still, it's a cool tattoo, and I'm waiting for it to heal. It looks really pretty and didn't cost too much, so it was a quick fix until I can afford to get a more detailed one.

The reason I'm blogging it is, although it's quite small, it hurt like a mother f*£%er!!! For anyone considering a tatt on their foot/ warned! I like to consider I've got a fairly high tolerance to pain, and none of my other tattoos made me squeal like a little girl, but I felt as if someone had taken a lit match and was trying to carve fire into my foot. Honestly, it was a real bum clencher lol!

The worst part I would say was the cross on my foot, and the chain around the outside of my ankle. The inner ankle didn't really hurt (just like a normal scratch...nothing major. It was more like my other tattoos.)

Sooooo, I'm glad I've got it, but I won't be rushing into another one on my foot very soon (call that never lol!). My wise friend Rachel says that it's akin to childbirth....something that hurts like a bugger at the time, and you swear you'll never do it again, but you forget about the pain....and then do it again after all. Hmm, think I might still need some convincing on that one...and I'll probably have to be dragged to the tattoo parlour for my next one lol!
