Holy cow! That looks awesome! If you don't mind me asking, how much did that cost?

More than I want to calculate. But it has taken me just under a year so far, I go once a month, and each session is 300-600 depending on how long I can take it. The outlining alone was close to seven hours and I have a total of about 30 hours invested in it. I would say it will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 3K once it is all said and done.

Wow! That is a lot of time and money invested in that. Looks great!

I am surprised this thread stalled! 😳

My introduction to the fine art of tattoo's was late on, last year at the age of 50. Mine are all deeply personal and are expressions of my life, with the left forearm representing the past and the right being the present/future. I live with CPTSD as a result of repeated childhood abuses and this process has assisted me greatly to release a lot of stuff I kept hold of.

This is the first one I had applied, it's an ambigram with the words Reality/Fantasy on it as I live with constant auditory hallucinations, amongst other experiences of mental health.

This is the next one on my right forearm with the words Struggle/Strength applied in a graffiti style, as that was my first expression of creativity and rebellion in my youth!

I'll come back with the additions to the Struggle/Strength one over the next couple of days and the latest ink I had applied last week.

My first and only tattoo, I got it in january
Flash done by my brother-in-law and tatted by my sister, paid 50 bucks for it (obviously as its my sister, she doesn't do these prices for everybody)
This has no meaning what so ever (and why should it be ?), I'm not even religious, I just liked the drawing, and also, I originally wanted a Baphomet on my right arm, but as it was on the christmas/new year eve period, my sister didn't had the time to do the drawing, and I was only there for 2 days, so I choosed a flash instead, postponed Baphomet for later

i just realize I can’t post my tattoo bc it’s been repinned too many times so that’ll give away identity, but I got mine done @ bang bang nyc and I love it to pieces.

I just recently go this little guy a few months ago. I have a few more but this one is the most recent. My running coach says I have a hummingbird heartbeat when I run so...
