another tattoo

feeling: unsure..LOL 

Well..its been awhile blog..I haven't been on this puppy for about a year. Sadly I totally forgot about it. I was going through my posts I've put up and noticed that I didn't put up my newest tattoo. LOL Unfortunately its almost a year old but it did take time for it to be complete..and I'm very proud of it.

My Dragon Tattoo
 Its my Dragon tattoo..I got him fully done by March 2012..which was perfect since it was the year of the dragon. I got him because I'm also a dragon and honestly these mythical creatures always fascinated me. 

the beginning
 The outline is always said to be the most painful..and that my friends is VERY true..the artist has to go over the line many times since well..its the outline..I'm amazed I did it cause this is my biggest tattoo to date. Plus parts of the dragon goes near my spine, ribs and kidneys..Major ouchies! >_______<


Shading isnt so bad..its like having your area being dragged against the road..LOL..but still can see that the shading onto more of my spine and ribs and parts of my shoulder as my other pics of him fully done the artist actually extended more of the shading/smoke. Which at times I wanted him to stop..but its all in the name of art..LOL

Here's the dragon in its main color green..coloring isn't bad compared to the outline but its almost close to shading but not as bad. Now you're probably wondering..Doesnt it hurt either way?? Yes it does but after awhile you tend to notice the different degrees of the pain. Especially when you have a large piece or even a small colored piece. Either way you will feel a difference.


yea..from my phone/FB LOL
Here's another pic of the process..I had to go about 4 or 5 times cause well..I can only handle so much pain..and since this was such a big piece..the biggest piece ive ever done..I had to go numerous times..Plus it was recommended to go in sessions because the skin has to cant go over shading and then might have a bigger chance if ink bleeding all in the all that pain..its shocks the skin.

All in all. To each his own. I got these tattoos because i love having art on me where ever i may go. Many people have their views on tattoos. Yea they do hurt and they are permanent..but all the more reason to really think if you want that tattoo or not.

To be honest I didn't plan for my dragon to be so big..but i wouldn't have it any other way. I wanted him small cause I wouldn't think I could handle the pain but deep in mind i wanted him big! LOL when I told the artist what I wanted and then he drew it out large..I thought we go! Go big or go home..LOL..In some but not all aspects.
