Hooray! Today was the last day of my massive tattoo project (as you can see above). Suffice it to say that I’m in a great deal of pain at the moment. It was a 4.5-hour session, and I feel like I can remember every moment of it. Right now it just kind of burns.

I have smaller tattoos planned for the future, including the convolvulus-based garter on my right leg, and I know that one is going to hurt like hell. But I’m going to take a bit of time off. I’ve earned it.
