Basic Information
This was my first experience getting a tattoo, and I'm not quite sure what I expected, but I never would have imagined the process to be so pleasant. I originally stopped by the shop a few weeks ago to discuss the idea of getting a white tattoo. The guys at the shop were very up front about the potential downsides to doing so, but said that if I was still game, I should come back when Blake returned from vacation, since he had more experience with white tattoos. I did so, and he worked me into his schedule the next day. The tattoo is still healing, so I can't speak to the finished results just yet. But so far it's exactly what I envisioned. It may still need a touch up once the scabbing has cleared up. But what stood out to me more than anything is just how kind and funny and personable Blake was, and how he metaphorically held my hand throughout the entire process. The placement of the stencil wasn't exactly what I had in mind at first, and he patiently worked with me to get it perfect. My first inclination was to say that he worked hard to make sure that I was comfortable throughout the process, but it really didn't seem like work at all. He has an incredibly gentle (though undeniably mischievous) nature, and although I'm not generally one for small talk, I found it very easy to chat with him both during the tattooing process and when we would step outside for short breaks. To be frank, I went in thinking of this as a one-time thing. But the entire experience was so pleasant that I'm already dreaming up ideas for my next tattoo with Blake.
