It’s pretty obvious what this post is about. Yes, I got a tattoo on Monday. I’ve been thinking about getting this tattoo for quite some time and I’m super happy with it!
My tattoo is the symbol for “Ohm”, which symbolizes inner peace and tranquility. Since I’m Buddhist, the “Ohm” symbol has a much more significant meaning to me, and it’s a little difficult to explain.
Anyway, so I went to the Glass Monkey to get my tattoo. It’s actually a smoke shop but they also do tattoos. I had a couple friends, including my boyfriend, that have gone to the Glass Monkey for their tattoo and loved it there. So on Monday after school, I went to get my tattoo with my mom and my boyfriend. My mom didn’t stay because she had to run errands, so my boyfriend stayed with me for support.
I was so nervous since it was my first tattoo. But actually, it wasn’t so bad. For me, I have a higher pain tolerance due to my chronic pain, so getting my tattoo done didn’t hurt that bad. Even now, it just feels like I got sunburned.
Overall I love my tattoo and I will definitely be returning to the Glass Monkey for my other planned tattoos.
