Yesterday I went with my friend Hank to see him get his tattoo. I was expecting this whole Miami Ink experience, but instead I left feeling freaked out and scared.
First off seeing Hank just lay there with blood all over his arm was awesome… not. I really don’t mind blood I just never realized how much you bleed when you get a tattoo. I think when watching Miami Ink you are so distracted by what is actually going on with the person’s background story that you just focus solely on that and don’t realize the blood that is going on.
Second, that noise of the needle hitting the skin is a turn on for Hank, but for me is a complete turn off. It just sounds terrible and it sounds like I’m in a weird scientific laboratory about to get worked on. Also seeing Hank’s face every time the tattoo artist hit a sensitive spot brought pain to me, and I was not even getting the tattoo. I just kept telling Hank that I’m glad it was him and not me… I’m such a good friend.
I’m sure this post will thrill my parents in knowing they don’t have to worry about tattoos on me. I’m way too indecisive about what I would get and also it freaks me out now. I’ll stick to piercings! Anyway, Hank’s tattoo turned out really well and I like it a lot!
