My lovely daughter decided that we needed to have matching tattoos done when she came to visit this weekend. I have been thinking of it for a while - just because. She wanted a fairy. We both looked and looked and finally came up with one that we could agree on. She was the one who looked into different tattoo shops but I did check their hours lol (because of the holiday). She made us an appointment for the 3rd so I couldn't chicken out. I don't know what she thought but she made me go first.
The place we went to was Art and Soul in Portage. I was impressed at how clean it was lol. The guy we had - Luke - was great. I had mine done on my leg - opposite the ankle where I had surgery and daughter had hers done on her arm. As I am in my forties I wanted it done somewhere where I wouldn't sag lol (or wasn't already!). It didn't hurt as much as I thought. Because of the way my foot was positioned my bad ankle hurt worse than the tattoo lol as it was being pushed on.
The worst thing is the aftercare - washing, patting dry and putting on lotion several times a day. It stings a little afterward but nothing major.
