New Tattoo!!

21st October
Well I finally got another tattoo. I had wanted a southern cross tatto for some time (and no I don't care if you think it is 'boganish'). I happen to like Australia and the stars of the southern hemisphere. So, I thought now was the perfect time to get a new one. Whenever I look at my foot (lol) I would be reminded of home... I love my tatto because I designed the whole thing, and it has meaning - the 7 small stars represent family (mum, dad, sister and 4 grandparents), and the dots represent my friends... all (well most) of whom can be found under the southern cross, at home, in Australia. The colours are just because they are pretty lol.
Just finished!
 Once it was finished I had to walk 20 mins home (I had to walk quick so I was home in time, as my break finished, so it probably only took 15 mins). The next day it was AGONY walking on my foot, and it was lucky I had a pair of shoes that didn't cover any of the tattoo as it was so tender. As you can see from the pic my foot swelled quite a bit, but after a few days it was alright again.
 Then the ITCHING set it. As it started to heal, it got itchier and itchier. I had to use a toothpick to scratch around the scabs! And of course, it was most itchiest at night, just as I was trying to get to bed :(
Half healed - attractive, isn't it?

We do think it is a bit boganish sweetness - but very clever design! Enough already!!! :-)
