Who tell me do this boy ,I think I liking this too much. Started gettin the ideas to get it done for real. Long time I want a next tattoo. I actually went and priced it to see how much it would cost if I wanted it for real....$5grand? Oh hells no, I doh like it THAT much.
I'm sorry to have to tell all you guys that the test run did not go as well as I thought.I am going to have to get a Plan B! Ok so it looked great day one. It looked great after the 3 showers I took since then. It doesn't look so hot now. My bra was my undoing. I should point out that I was warned that my clothes may shorten the life of the tattoo because of the constant contact with the skin and the fabric. So I intentionally wore clothing that was a bit more loose fitting at the back. Nonetheless, I did not even think about the damage a bra would cause. After a few hours of bra wearing the middle of my dragon tail was smudged to smithereens.
An interesting thing also happened....my dragon grew scales! It seems that the ink has disappeared around the pores in my skin so it has a fine polkadot pattern in some areas that look like scales. I am not a person who sweats very much and I have been in the 'cold breeze' all day so I don't know if I sweated it off or if I rubbed it off and those areas were more prone to wear and tear (or both). The skin itself feels like it it has a bit of tightness in the area. Ironically (or fortunately) I wore a black shirt today so I have no way of telling where the ink went. It is extremely worrying cause now I 'm worried how something this prominent will hold up over the course of two days in the hot sun. I once had my full upper body airbrushed for a promotional event and it held up for 6 hours well...at night.
I am beginning to think this is not such a great idea anymore even though it looks cool. When I thought about it, I was wondering when I can get it done. I really don't see it lasting if I do it before Sunday.Will I be able to get it done on Sunday or will my friend set me up? So if I have to go out Sunday night ...say to Lara (for free) I have to make sure I have a halter outfit without a bra. And if I have to go out that means I will have to do it much earlier than I would like. I can't very well leave the party and go and do it. But that means I will be putting the whole tattoo on show the day before the official debut. It also means that I DEFINITELY will not be able to play J'Ouvert. I can't see anyway I can avoid getting paint all over and any way that I can removet he paint and keep the dragon intact.Dammit!
If I should be able to keep it intact for Monday cause my Monday wear is like a bikini top, which should do minimal damage. The bra on Tuesday while jumping with my sweaty self will ruin it for sure. I am worried that the damage will just make it look shitty.
If you had a smaller one in your upper/lower back or other body part it would probably fare much better than mine in terms of clothing contact. The one on my ankle is doing very well, and looks much better.But I still have not shaved my legs so I'm not going to post a pic.Avoid waist band / bra band/bra strap areas. This really sucks. I'm going to be really disappointed if I can't figure out a way to pull this off.My dragon eh jus buss, it explode!
