I got my second tattoo (aka my birthday tattoo) last Saturday. It’s a little bigger than I wanted it to be but I adore it.
Good-bye, bare arm.
Hello, new tattoo! <3
Would you believe me if I said it didn’t hurt at all? Because it didn’t. Either I have a high threshold for pain (my first tattoo didn’t hurt much, either) or the tattoo artist did a really good job. But then, it’s a pretty simple and small tattoo that only took 15-20 minutes to do.
My friend Nan got his first tattoo that day, too.
The tattoo says “Just one breath is a million sighs” which is my favorite line from my favorite Hanson song (Runaway Run. Click to listen to it) on my favorite Hanson album (2000’s This Time Around). My favorite Hanson song is actually Madeline from Middle of Nowhere but the lyrics aren’t “tattoo-able”. I’ve been a fan of the band for thirteen years, which is more than half my life; I think I’m past outgrowing them so I’m not very worried about hating this tattoo after x number of years :D
The font I used is Shipley-Rough. The artist who did my ampersand tattoo wasn’t free last Saturday so I went with Marlon (still) from 55 Tinta.
I’m thinking I should go with white or UV ink for my next tattoo.
