This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
Now it’s done, my second tattoo is decorating my body. The more I look at it the more I love it. It’s a tiny palm tree on the inside of my wrist. I was a little skeptical to color at first, but now I’m glad I did it in color, it would have been super boring in black.
Vasoula accompanied me, Maj called me right before my appointment and said she had to work but we were more than welcome to her house after. Chris, the guy who did it, was really nice and did a really good job. He has been a tattooer for nine years and really knows what he is doing. I got a little nervous when he took out a Sharpie pen, a really thick pen and started to draw a palm tree after a quick look at the picture I brought. And then he started and it turned out really pretty. Dark colors which is what I wanted and small details. I love the tree trunk. I was a little afraid that it would hurt on the wrist because of the think skin but it wasn’t so bad. It hurt a little, but only for 25 minutes.
We drove to Maj’s house and stayed there for a while talking. Too bad she had to work. She told us about a music festival close to where she lived but we couldn’t find it so we decided to go to Coronado Beach instead. It was windy but really nice. Jessica came and met us there and we stayed for almost three hours. Then back home, some fixing at the computer and now it’s time for bed.
