I finally finished my tattoo! It took nearly 45 minutes, which is REALLY long, given that when I have them done by professionals, they usually only take 10-15 minutes!

This is only the 2nd one I've done on myself, and I think I'm getting a bit better. Its very hard to make the paste go where you want it!

Anyway, here is the design I chose:

and a few shots of the development...

and the finished product:

I might add some detail work to the fingers later, since that's usually my favorite part. I'm also trying to find a good design to do on my foot. Apparently, having to concentrate on something keeps me awake!

I just went to the kitchen to make a lemon juice and sugar mixture to help keep my tattoo moist while it darkens, and came across the snack I'd made over an hour ago (peanut butter on a strawberry yogurt nutri-grain bar. If that doesn't give me some energy, I'm hopeless!) Apparently I'd made it and then completly forgotten about it.

I also grabbed the bag of crispy MnM's. Three guesses which one I'll eat first.

I just realized while talking to Kiki that I only have ten posts left! WOW!
