You guys my arm is slightly flared up. It kind of looks ridiculous honestly. The tattoo itself has started to get this raised look to it and I had to be extra careful while at work. I didn’t realize how much I really use my forearms and because of that I had to make adjustments and avoid doing certain things. For one I realized that washing dishes is not the best of ideas. It gets on the tattoo and when you go to soak up the water you realize what your about to do and have to take time to dap the tat instead. It’s ridiculous.
Do I regret getting it in any shape, way or form? No. I don’t. honestly I am so in love with it and it’s only the start of this half sleeve. The first week of April it will be completed and I swear it’s going to be badass. I can just picture it. Of course my arm will be out of commission for a while and I have to really watch myself. But It will all be ok.
Let me just say that so far I am more worried about when the tattoo starts to itch. Some of my other pieces got bad but this is the arm region. It’s large, and there is a lot that is going to peel. I really hope it just skips that part...but it never does.
We shall hope and pray that everything will turn out all right. After all the tattoo was an intentional thing and I want it to heal up beautifully so that I can not only get the rest of it done in a reasonable time but also so that I can show it off properly and represent these four pinball machines in general.
