As I posted here I have been waiting over a year for my Valerie appointment. She is currently not taking any new bookings (as far as I am aware) so I was very excited to get the start of my Valerie tattoo today.
This is it just finished. Ouchy. It took just under 3 hours. Next month we are working on the gypsy head that will be the half sleeve element of the piece. I have two more sessions booked in to get the sleeve finished.
Here is a picture just to show how it becomes part of a pair:
The bruising is starting to come up:
