Knee Tattoos: They Aren’t Fun

For session 47, Horizakura continued on his merry way up my leg shading water and waves.  The longer I’m in this process, the more enjoyment I get out of seeing the background come together.  It’s amazing how a dynamic background can elevate the subject matter in the foreground.  If I was a more artistic person, I’m sure I would find a way to apply that.

Artistic theory aside, getting my knee tattooed was just not any fun at all.  The memory of pain fades with time, but I’m pretty confident the ass hurt worse for me.  Probably due to the delicate nature of the skin over my knee cap as compared to the “ample” areas of my butt.  My understanding is that thicker areas require more force to saturate with color/shading.  This might be specifically for tebori… I don’t know anything about applying a tattoo, so I should probably just shut up.

The good news is, my knee is done and besides for some flower petals, I won’t ever have to get tattooed there again.  The bad news is, I have another knee.

Of course, no matter what, I’m stoked with the progress!  This will be the last update for a few weeks since I had to cancel my next appointment for a work trip.  See you in late July nerds.

Better Late Than Missed

I have an appointment on the books for tomorrow June 19, but due to a chaotic couple of weeks, I did not have time to update from my last appointment.  This appointment was pretty chill, only 1.5 hours.  It’s a little hard to tell what’s new vs. newish vs. oldish, but it’s there.

You may notice that left kneecap looking pretty roasted.  That is due to driving my Jeep with no doors…. I didn’t even realize it until a few days ago when I looked at my knees side-by-side in a mirror.  Whoops.  Now I apply sunblock before driving, although I really do need to get on a better SPF skin care regimen.

Nothing more to add.  Enjoy!
