I can’t believe she let me do it…

The time has come for my final step in my learning project. I found a person willing to let me put my knowledge into practice. My lovely wife volunteered to let me tattoo a heart on her foot to match the birth mark on our daughter’s foot. She chose to do a simple heart in purple in the same spot as Evie has a heart shaped birthmark.

Here is my wife before the tattoo starts:

She was happy and excited and in fact it was mostly her idea. The first step was to create and apply the stencils just like I did in this post. Here is the stencil applied.

Now it was time to start tattooing. I made a little time lapse video of the whole thing.

Once it was all done Jaclyn was still smiling and happy so I would say that this was a success.

Jac is the smiling recipient of my first tattoo! Looks like I did OK!

I don’t think that tattooing is going to pay my way through university. In fact in the end I found the whole experience to be quite nerve wracking. I have a whole new appreciation for what my brother does every day. There is no room for mistakes in tattooing. Although the online sources were limited and had their flaws I would say that my personal learning project was a success. I will post an update and final summary blog that goes in to a little more detail. For now this may be my only tattoo I do. At least I can say I’ve tattooed someone. Who knows I might be brave and get back in there. Keep your eyes on the blog and I’ll keep you updated. Let me know what you think in the comments.
