Crystal Cluster Tattoo (Tattoo #18)

Hi again!

I wanted to write a post today about my newest tattoo :) I don't have too much to say about this one since it was pretty much a spur-of-the-moment decision, but I did want to blog about it. I'm bored out of my mind and need something to do!!

Side note- I'm glad I'm on spring break this week, and I'm thankful I have the opportunity to relax. However, relaxing is so insanely boring after awhile!! I need to find something free/ cheap to do this week. 

Anyway, here's a picture of my new baby!

So, I originally went in to get one of my other tattoos touched up. When I talked to the artist, she said she would touch it up for $60 or I could get another tattoo and she would do the touch ups for free. Obviously I chose the latter! I googled some random moon images and I found this little guy on Pinterest. It was originally just an outline, so Malicia took it and added her own flair to it. I love that she added stippling to the moon, and kept everything black and gray besides the crystal cluster. Seriously, it's absolutely gorgeous and I could not have asked for a better tattoo! The experience was amazing, and I've made a new friend in the process :) That's one of the reasons why tattooing is such a wonderful thing- you meet amazing people and you walk out with a beautiful piece of art on your body <3

I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty nervous for this one. I don't have tattoos anywhere near my feet (unless you count my bats, but those didn't take very long to do), so I wasn't sure what it would feel like. I've heard it's supposed to be one of the toughest places to get tattooed other than your ribs and hands. 

Honestly, this wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be!! I'm not just saying that to sound like a badass. My gypsy and Sailor Mars tattoos (calf/ side of the leg) were much more brutal than this little guy. The only part that really caused me some pain was the stippling on the moon. Granted, this one only took about an hour and a half to complete. Malicia is super light-handed so that probably has a lot to do with it. The way I had to sit for the tattoo was more painful than the tattoo itself! 

Overall, I am 100% in love with my moon and crystals and I can't wait to go back to Malicia!! I don't really know what I want on my other foot, but I'm thinking either a sugar skull or the sun with a warm-toned crystal cluster. We'll see!

Thank you for checking out my blog today! I hope you enjoyed reading about my obsession with tattoos, and I hope I get to talk to you again very soon :)

Until next time!
