The unveiling...

The guy is a genius. Not me obviously, I'm referring to Stewart the tattoo artist. I went in at 9:30 yesterday morning with this

and a scrap of paper with a couple of rough ideas

and my arm now looks like this

Am I happy with it? To say I'm delighted with the results is an enormous understatement.

What does it mean? It's a musician's advice on how to treat people - never be sharp, sometimes be flat, always be natural

How long did it take? 4.5 hours, 1.5 designing it and 3 hours "inking"

Is it addictive? Well I'm already considering the next one

Did it hurt? Not agonising pain, but it was a little uncomfortable initially

Did I feel a prick? Well I feel a bit silly with cling film on my arm but it's only for a couple of days...

I'm still very impressed! Thinking of using your arm as my wallpaper, if only I could give up the Marmite. Marmite tattoo, now there's an idea! Might encourage people to lick me though.....Nope, can't see a down side.

WOW Seany that is one tattoo! Better than the Hobgoblin thought may have been contender! How strange I had my first yesterday too although being nothing compared to the size of yours it I found it did in fact hurt like hell!! Hats off!
