    Hi all, Here is a pic of semi healed. It is still pretty dry. Just wanted to get your thoughts. I don’t know if my mind is still playing tricks on me and I’m over analyzing still. Kind words are appreciated.

    Thank you. After reading some other posts I do see it is very common. It's just very overwhelming. I find myself comparing to other tattoos and not wanting to go back to finish my appointment. I guess my main concern is that it does look good and is good work? or if I am just over analyzing everything. Thanks for your thoughts!

    Thank you for your kind words and insight. I really appreciate it. At this point I look at other women with sleeves and think it looks so beautiful and on me it looks so foreign. I guess I just need to appreciate and get used to looking at it on my body. Thanks again!
  8. Hi there, I am experiencing this. I noticed you posted this in 2018. Has anything gotten better? Did you end up going through the removal process?

    Having anxiety

    Hi all, I am new to the site. Not new to tattoos I have had 3 before my large sleeve piece. I started the first half of my sleeve and was in love and just started on the bottom half. I love the design and concept but am having anxiety and panic attacks when looking at it. I don’t know if it is the shock since my other tattoos are covered easily and also now the sleeve is covering my whole arm. I just had work done a couple day’s ago and my bicep is healed since October. I just feel now I am analyzing every aspect of my tattoo and also the bottom half is darker which I know has to go through the healing process and will eventually be similar to the top. I also have no exposed this tattoo to my job at all and I am feeling anxiety about what people will be thinking, my friends, family and boyfriend say they love it but I am all of the sudden feeling overwhelmed with my decision. I have wanted a sleeve since my early twenties (I am now 27). I have always wanted this concept and design since the begining so I feel I have thought about it for a long time and I feel disappointed in myself for having so much regret. I feel my family, friends and boyfriend are just saying they love it because they love me and don’t want to hurt my feelings. I have more work to be done but I feel I am constantly analyzing and critiquing the work and I did not feel that way after my first session. I have been reading other posts here and just thought I could get some insight and ask if others have gotten over this. Please let me know what you think. thank you.
