That's right, today I got a tattoo. I've been wanting one for so long, and I finally found the perfect one to start off with. It's Japanese Kanji characters, and it says "Chiyu", which means healing or to heal. Since I am finally at terms with the fact that I walk a healing path, I thought it appropriate. The picture looks a little off though ... I was trying to take this myself. The tattoo is on my left shoulder - hold the camera with my right hand ... yeah. But I'm very happy with it, and can certainly see myself getting more tattoos in the future.
By the way .... I don't think that it hurt. I was tender afterwards, but I have had flu shots that hurt more than getting this tattoo.
