Went and saw Victor while I was driving about Europe couple weeks back and had some touch ups all over really but he also did a little filler where the shit squiggly lines were ready for connection to my knee. Still healing so its still very dark :)

Thanks for giving me hope, Peter! May I ask, how many sessions and what type laser were used?

Ye laser is horrible!

Ive had 4 sessions now, its a Qswitch laser but its one of the only 2 top machines in the country I am told. Worked brilliantly and was only £90 a session :)

Latest and greatest. Healing like shit though for some reason. Still getting minimal dabs of plasma/blood punching through a week later from where the skin stretched/moves from using my hand. Not sure if this is natural to the lower arm/wrist area or the new spray he used, Hush. Could that spray cause terrible healing?

I had both sides of my arm done in two days. For me it healed fine.

What was a pain was that I used Tegaderm and went on a plane back from California. This cause all the plasma/blood/etc. to blow up like a balloon in my arm. Mid flight it leaked so.

I reapplied a new piece when I got home.

I took a brief trip to Portland to get tattooed by greggletron. Cool shop and a nice guy as well. The knee was quite the experience!

Awesome. I'm not gonna have space for knee tattoos of that size. Not that I regret my tattoos near my knees or anything, but sometimes I wish I saved room. Maybe I'll just get Higgs roses.

I finished my backpiece on December 30th ! Then I did a victory lap and had my tattooer/life-coach cap my wrist off with a magic dragon. It ended up on my hand with the beard on the knuckle whoops! Turned out awesome !!

Healing is a total bitch, haven't bent my wrist since last Wednesday and my hand is really raw.

I'll post a less cryptic pic in the future...my arm now is all Steve Batt 2003 / 2007 / 2015 yipee really cool to see a timeline from the same tattooer blended one into the other.

Was supposed to have my next session on Christmas Eve-we got halfway down there and had to turn back around, the snow and ice were just too much. I'd felt like such a wuss, but they ended up w/a bad storm so I guess I was glad we went back home. But on the way home I called and called and the line was busy--so when I finally got thru to cancel, I said I understood how hard it is to get in to see my artist, and I would just take whatever I could. The guy says "Well, I actually just got off the phone w/someone cancelling for next Sunday-you want it?" Uh-YES! So, we trekked back down yesterday. He ended up adding some stuff to the right side top and bottom, where I thought we were done, more waves and such, added some wind to that side too, and whatever, I'll deal w/it if it means it will be an even better piece.

Hurt like a bitch this time. Not sure if it's b/c it was such a big area this time, or b/c of what time of the month it is..guys you don't care but girls you understand.
