Got my new tattoo!!!

My mom bought it for me for my golden birthday. It is on the back of my left calf.

It was designed and later tattooed by Josh Palmer at Aloha Monkey in Burnsville, MN.  It was cool because I had been thinking of this for years since I am a HUGE Hello Kitty girl and a bigger fan of A Clockwork Orange.  I always wanted a ACO tattoo, but they were all very masculine in nature until I thought of this.  So I sent him a bunch of pictures of both Alex from the movie and Hello Kitty.  He incorporated a lot of the imagery and color of both, including the awesome orange bow on the hat and the eyeball on the bow that is normally on Alex's sleeve.  I just LOVE it!

My leg is essentially retaliating against me right now though (hurts like HELL).  It hates me for tattooing it.  It's funny too, cuz my left side is the side affected by my cerebral palsy, so my leg does not lie flat.  The tattoo artists called it my "spring loaded leg" cuz it just pops back up if you press it down.  So they had to prop it up a certain way to get it done.

I feel: soresore
I'm listening to: King of the Hill

Yeah, I hadn't gotten a tattoo in about five years, so I was all worried about the after effects since I couldn't remember them. Hey, do you have any piercings? There's one I want right now (but don't have the money for) and am wondering about the healing time and annoyance.

I've got my lobes, belly button, nose, and helix (upper ear) done, so I know the pain of sleeping on them, lol. I wanted to get my left nipple done and i only know one girl who has it done. But she is the type that never does anything to prevent problems with it, so it got infected like, a LOT. I'd love to find someone who takes proper care of one of them, lol. :)

Rubbing alcohol has now been found to do more damage than good because although it helps with infection, it also kills the good cells. When I got my nose done, I used peroxide because apparently it doesn't kill the good stuff.
I used to want my tongue done, but healing would restrict my diet, which would be such a pain.
