it’s been four months since i got my white tattoo, and because of the nature of white ink, parts of the sanskrit had become a little muddled/invisible. so today, after working from 5 am til 10 am and a quick shower, i got re-tattooed. it took one line to remind me that HOLY HELL THIS HURTS. for some reason it seemed to hurt more this time than the first. but we’ll see if the white holds better, since it seemed to me that he was literally carving into my arm – i think he went deep enough that you can see the shadow of it on the other side of my wrist. i would put up a picture, but it’s totally non-representational of how the tattoo will actually look…right now all it looks like is someone drew on me with white-out. i’ll keep you updated.
