Went in for my tattoo yesterday afternoon, totally pumped and ready. I made sure I ate prior to going, drank plenty of water ahead of time and showed up early to my appointment. Talked with my artist, signed my release forms, The artist got the trace on my arm: (sorry, the pic is blurry, taken on my camera phone, forgot my digital at home ) Then, after the outline was done and he started on the color, despite being up, breathing, talking to those around me, I somehow managed to pass out! 15-20 minutes into it and I passed out My artist handled it great, however, saying it happens all the time. He and my SO took me outside for some fresh air, then he gave me a lollipop to suck on to help bring my blood sugar back up He says it happens so often, they keep lollipops for that exact reason. But I finished! Here's the final product: But yeah, I feel like an idiot for doing that. Not that I could really help it either. I took some pics with my digi but I have to wait until tonight to upload them.
