You ain't got nothin' on us.
We stroll into Mantis Tattoo in Jeanette, PA, like 10 minutes before closing and just put it all out on the table:
Us: "We want tattoos."
Kind lady: "Do you know what you want?"
So, we ended up getting cutesy little hearts behind our ears. They're precious, and I'm so happy I did this. I feel like if we didn't go out on a limb and spontaneously do this, we would have never of done it. We have so many more ideas now that we can't wait to get done..
For now, here is my cutesy little heart:
I'm obsessed. I love it. The only thing right now is that my neck hurts like a bitch. Totally worth it..
The aftercare is standard: I use Dial Gold liquid antibacterial handsoap to clean it 2-3 times a day. I use warm water first to clean it, and then cold water to "shock" the ink.
And then I just put a small layer of Eucarin Original hand lotion on it and that's it.
I can't reiterate enough how glad I am that I did this. I have wanted tattoos for the longest time, and I finally had the courage to do it. I'm not afraid of needles, but more or less afraid of..well..judgement. And you know what? I don't care anymore, it's MY body!
This short post is about me telling you about my new tattoo..but it's also to document my growth as an independent. And so far, I like where it is going!
Snapbacks and tattoos are a real thing for me now,
