Meet Eric the Elephant

How long was it since my last tattoo, maybe 3 months? Gosh, another one I hear you say? Yes, another one. A looong time ago I did a post asking your opinion about my next big tattoo and here you go, the wait is over! 

The finished result is so much better than I ever expected. Big thank you goes to Chris who not only was patient with me and my blurry ideas, but also did an amazing job on the sketch itself. I love the detailing and the shading and just ahhhh! I named him Eric, don't ask me why, because I have no idea.

Pain wise it was horrible. Not only this is one of the most painful spots to tattoo, I'm also not very good with pain in general. To my surprise I didn't make a noise, didn't curse and didn't even want to take breaks. Just get over it, you know? At one point it felt like Chris is just removing a layer of my skin, that painful. No regrets though, it's the perfect spot for my elephant. Close enough to me, but visible enough for the whole world to see his beauty. 

Whatcha think?

  1. Hi Eric! What a masterpiece! I've been lusting over a tattoo for years, but I can't seem to get over my fear of needles. :,(

    Thanks for the follow xxx

    Well, It's not as bad as you think! I expected so much more pain, but sometimes it's simply uncomfortable more than painful.
