Getting a big tattoo at a convention
I had always veered away from getting tattooed at tattoo conventions. But Jo works at lots of conventions and she was coming to Bristol so it made logistical sense for her to do it in my home city.
My fears about conventions were that it would be distracting having the general public staring at me and if I struggled with the pain I would be publicly embarrassed.
The reality was different. I am such a tart and love attention. I found talking to people diverting and actually made it easier to cope withe long session. It was fun. I had underestimated my performing and exhibitionist personality. As can be seen in the photo I had decided to be almost naked in order to show off all my ink. I felt so confident I just walked around on my lunch and tea breaks and after everything was done without my clothes on.
I also hope to get some grey work done very close and moving onto my genitals. There's not much to be done there as it is already pretty complete in the pubic area. But emotionally it would mean a great deal to me.
