Thursday evening Andrew (my bf) and I went to check out a tattoo place where I am living atm…, and decided that I was just gonna get my tattoo then because they were doing walk ins. Andrew already has 3 tattoos so my anxiety with health and cleanliness was eased.
The tattoo is a “kamon”, a crest that is on Japanese kimono and other garments. Kimono and kitsuke have been a big thing in my life. The crest is a kikyo – Chinese/Japanese Bellflower. You can see the design I chose on this page.
I got it in between my shoulder blades, around where you would find the crest when you are wearing kimono. It did hurt quite a bit when she was tattooing over my spine, but otherwise it wasn’t too bad.
