My 77th appointment with Horizakura was very similar to the 76th appointment. For this hour, he tattooed the same area as last time but on my left leg, adding a houju to my inner thigh and another to my left hip. I really like them as little pops of color and I think it’s going to look great when everything is shaded and colored… in like 10 years.
I’M NOT CRYING! YOU’RE CRYING!!!!!
In terms of the experience itself, well it was also very similar to last appointment, although I have to say the compromising nature of the position wasn’t as bad having already experienced it once before. The only thing really worthy of note is that I had truly forgotten just how violently painful the ass is. He put a line on that thigh/ass fold that was like white lightning and instantly reminded me why I hated getting my ass tattooed so much. Fortunately, it was just the one line.
We briefly discussed next steps as well. Seems like the plan is to finish outlining/connecting the thigh and background around the phoenix, then he want’s to switch over to shading again before he does my arm outlines. Part of me wants to ask him to just finish the outline of everything first so I can be done with it. It’s arbitrary, but it does feel like having the whole suit outlined will be an “item crossed off the list” in this process. We’ll see what happens… it’s all got to get done eventually anyway, so I guess it doesn’t matter.
