Assuming you aren't also following me on twitter/facebook, here's the first look at my new octopus tattoo.

Octotat

If you remember my post about commissioning the tattoo you'll notice a couple minor changes that the tattoo artist suggested: flipping it to face forward on my arm and some simplification/elimination of the suckers on some of the tentacle tips. But overall he did a great job matching the original and did a very nice job with the colors too.

I'll put up some more pictures after it heals, but I'm super happy with this and I'm glad I decided to commission a custom piece for my first time.

Also, shout out to Josh W at Slave to the Needle. He did a great job on the tat and did it super fast: I was out in under 2 hours. Also it appears to be healing nicely, not too much swelling or welting, but I'll take credit for some of that.

Ah, but will you still itch like a mofo as it heals???? If you miss out on that stage too, I will be v. cross.

I am excited that the instructions for dealing with the itching are to "slap the tattoo lightly". :D

I AM HERE TO HELP.
