That itch for more that never really goes away. It dies down a little sometimes.
When I distract myself with a project or something else for a while.
Its always in the background though, niggling and whining and scratching at the door of my unconscious like a puppy that hates being left outside.
And seeing it everywhere doesn’t help either.
People often ask me why I do it. And many people don’t want to start because they’re afraid of the apparent danger of addiction… but I don’t think its addictive at all.
I think it just gets easier once you are over the hurdle of the first one.
Yes, it hurts, and I always forget just how much it hurts… but holy hell, when I see pictures of beautiful artwork adorning someone’s skin- I long for more of my own with a desperation that is almost laughable and very hard to explain!
Anyhoodle. I am indeed contemplating more ink. I have seen several designs that I really really like, and I have decided on my next two- which will actually be one tattoo as I can’t have one without the other…
And I stumbled on this chart again which I thought might put a smile on your dial whether you have ink or not.
