I just realised I never posted a picture of my tattoo after my session on Wednesday!
There’s still a long way to go, I have another full day session in 3 weeks, to finish off defining the lining and shading, then will do some smaller sessions to add colour, but I absolutely love it already!
It’s my own design – I come from a sailing family, and practically grew up on boats, so I have a natural love for all things nautical! My first tattoo was a small anchor on my hip, which fits in with style of this piece. I also fitted in a bit of Disney-love, with Pocahontas’ compass down the bottom there!
The quote is very important to me, as I have always had a dreadful habit of holding myself back due to a fear of failure, and this is to remind me to have the courage to take risks and follow my dreams.
I can’t wait for it to be finished, although the long session really was tough – about 3/4 of the way through, I could have called it a day, but I sucked it up and saw it through, and I’m so pleased I did!
