Here it is, my special Friday post. Today, I'm sharing the tattoo I got on Monday. I'm really happy with it. It feels very much like me. You don't have to like it. I'm not going to care if that's the case. But I love it, and I'm excited to share it.
Disclaimer: the photos were taken immediately after the tattoos were finished and before they were covered. So it'll look a little raw. Also, freehand stuff was drawn in red, which wasn't wiped off entirely, so it makes it look more raw that it actually was. It really didn't hurt all that much.
First up, my redone dragon. The tattoo beneath is old, having gotten it well over ten years ago. It was faded and while I was still happy with it (it means a great deal to me), I think it needed something. She was given a really rad update:
And now onto the totally new piece:
I also like that Freya was Vanir, and not Aesir, and might have been part of an older pantheon in Scandinavia than the Aesir, who may have been iron age imports (if it wouldn't bore you, ask me about it all one day. Be prepared, though. I will not shut up).
So that's my new art. I think maybe in the future, when I manage to save up enough to get my left half-sleeve done, extend the wings a little (have another layer of feathers), but honestly, I'm really pleased with it.
I shall be accompanying my friend to get his tattoo done, so I'll have Alicia check it over to see how it's healed For now, I'm smiling, really happy with my new art.
Right, I have videos to edit.
