I got my first tattoo this week because I wanted one when I turned 50. Took 3 hours and didn't hurt but it did wear on my nerves a bit lol. Let me load the pic up later and tell me what you think. Pics are from start to finish. I kinda was expecting more I think but I am happy with it. I have been told that once it heals and stops peeling, the color should look more vibrant? Be honest, did I waste my $500?
