Default First Tattoo Experience - Collection thread

Hi there!

First of all, I'd like to extend a big thank you to this community. I'm a long time lurker that finally pulled the trigger and got my first tattoo about a month back. It would most likely not had gone as smooth as it did if it wasn't for all the feedback and tips that is posted on this forum on a daily basis. So again, thank you kindly.

I thought I'd summarize by posting 3 pictures of my experience below. The first two pictures were taken after I removed the dermalize film (Seriously, how awersome is this stuff?) that was protecting it, which was about 3-4 days afterwards. The third and last picture was taken little over a month after the final session.

Session 1:


Session 2:


Final session - 1 month healed:


I struggled a little with the lighting when I tried to take the pictures, but I'm sure you can all relate to that.

The whole thing took about 10,5 hours and I felt very well taken care of. It was supposed to be only two sessions but I had to cut the second session short due to an unforeseen circumstance. He told me it was no big deal and that I could come back 3 days later to wrap up the last hour of work.

I am super happy with the final outcome. I've already made another appointment for September as I intend for this to be a full sleeve when it's all said and done. The waiting is definitely the worst, I'm completely hooked. :P

Thanks for reading! Feel free to speak your mind about what you think of it.

Tattoo artist is Brent McKenzie at Blackwoods studio Umeň, Sweden. Check IG link below.

Love the detail and the softness. Healed photo is the best by far, what a lovely piece. Congratulations!
