Well, I finally did it. Blogger world, I present to you my new ink:

I'm happy with how it turned out. It looks a little wierd here since it's slathered in cocoa butter and so brand new (hence, a little crusty in spots. heh), but I'm happy.

It didn't really hurt that bad - made me grimace quite a lot, but not too serious. He had me hold my breath while he was doing each section, which helped me hold still for him and gave me something else to concentrate on besides the pain. He did a good job and I didn't bleed at all. Yay!

We didn't really plan it that way, but it is situated on the tip of my breast bone so that it almost looks 3D - the center is closer to you than the edges. I never realized my breast bone stuck out like that until now, really. Guess I just haven't looked at it that much.

Anyway, ta da!
