INSTA WEEK #17


I got a new tattoo!  I have wanted a moon tattoo for the longest time, and was originally going to get a simple crescent on my inner forearm.  To be honest, I'll probably still end up getting that at some point, but I decided on this mandala style sun and moon down my side.  It hurt.  A lot.  I always thought that I was pretty good with tattoo pain - apparently not.  I'll be writing a post on all about it when it is healed and I've had it touched up.

I've also been wearing my hair in this french braid/90's buns hair style, pretty much everyday this week.  It reminds me of the spice girls, and it keeps my hair out of my face which is most pleasing.

p.s. Happy Easter *chick in egg emoji*

  31. The side part is one of the most sensitive parts to get a tattoo! You're so brave! I myself am too scared to get one at that part even if I'm up to painful body modifications.
