My newest Tattoo

I'm so excited!! I got another tattoo done this morning. I got a Triskele on my right shoulder blade. A Triskele is a Celtic symbol. It does have many different meanings: Land, Sea & Sky; the 3 phases of a witch (Maid, Mother, Crone), and so on & so forth.

My tattoo is about 3-4cm in diameter, not very big, but that's what I wanted. I didn't really feel the needle as Stephen, my tattoo artist went to work. I was totally relaxed, almost falling asleep on the table. It took about a 1/2 hour to do it. It kinda felt like a cat scratching on my back, no biggie, since I have 2 little furballs at home...ok, they're not so little. It should take about 7-10 days for it to completely heal. I just have to keep it hydrated with a scent--free lotion that is water-based. No problem.

I'd love to get a tattoo but I'm too chickenshit! Sad, but true! Yours is fantastic. I did just get a sterling triskellion charm for my bracelet, which isn't nearly as cool as a tat but is the best I'm going to do. Thanks for the accolades by the way, with the blog award. It's nice to know I'm being read, since I'm never quite sure if anyone is out there. lol

Peace my friend!

Love it! I'm planning a big tattoo fest to celebrate my year and a day. I'm still trying to design it. LOL

I love all things Celtic, so this is right up my alley.

And I don't think tats hurt either. In fact, I sort of enjoy them. We must have dead nerve endings or something. :D
