Stamp your seal against the bare skin with love

A few minutes old

The next morning,slightly swollen(Saturday)

New pair of earrings I gotAlign Center


Today is Saturday but I've backdated this post to Friday.
So where did I went missing to?? For those of you who don't know,I am officially inked! Headed down after work with my boyfriend and both of us got our first tattoo. So happy and it looks so gorgeous too.

I apologise for not many photos or an outfit shot as I was having a headache the whole day throughout. My was all in black while my love had his in color,so I took more photos than mine.
I did my french phrase on my right inner wrist.
The right size and right font was picked and the session started. The best way to describe the pain is like a burning scratch,surely bearable pain. But it was all worth it!
My love did a dragon behind his back in color and I love the water waves with it. I'm so proud of him as he tolerate the pain for two and a half hours.

After which,we headed for supper with the tattoo artist and his wife. I must say they're such amazing and nice people. Not the normal type of people you would expect from a tattoo artist. Yummy roadside stall to have stingray and also squid with rice. They are one of the sweetest and most adorable couple you would meet.
Shout out to my friend Shermin for helping us for finding the right artist!

Thank you to everyone for your encouraging words and your support!
Even though I was so busy with work this week,you all still visited even when I couldn't visit your blogs or reply to comments. I'm really very touched and this motivates me more each day to keep this blog moving! So thanks so much again. On to your blogs now~

'without you, there is no me', right? My french is a bit rusty since I haven't taken it for two semesters haha. Such a great phrase and I love the spot you got it on! I'd be sooo chicken to get a tattoo :P Also, those earrings are really cool! They do look kind of festive :)
