It is Finished!
My tattoo is finally finished!! I had gone in with the plans of getting a frame around this good old boy raccoon, but each time we tried out size after size of frame, it just wasn't working. No matter what way it was positioned, it just looked out of place, my arms just aren't big enough. Although this one arm doesn't feel that way right now, it's extremely swollen and makes me feel buff! This part of the tattoo (flowers touched up/background added onto) was horrible!!! There are layers upon layers (x 10 in some spots) of colors which makes for a good looking tattoo but certainly not for a good experience, having to go over and over the same areas. Bleh. But like I stated in my first raccoon tattoo post, I am an idiot and keep putting myself through the pain.
I would like to say a huge huge huge thank you to these lovely folks for creating such wonderful animals in suits, without which I would never have met George Cooney (that's what Patrick named him).
