Somehow I have to persuade Ben that I want contrasting colours and warm colours and not just cold colours. I have a plan to deal with this issue.
Progress is so slow at two hours a month and part of me wants to accelerate the pace but when the tattooing starts then I focus more on withstanding the pain and the energy it sucks out of me. Can I really take it more regularly? I certainly couldn't cope with longer sessions.
Darker tattoos are, of course, likely to be more durable and I'm sure that is a part of what is on Ben's mind but his house style appears to be blue infused.
