Definitely NOT vanilla.

W00t!

First entry in the combined LJ. After about 18 months of wanting it... I finally mustered (with a little help from Galen) the confidence necessary to get another tattoo.

All I can say is hot damn it hurt like a MOTH@#*&#&$#!!! I've had my nips pierced, this didn't compare. I did expect this though, because of the lack of nerve cluster density in this particular area -- most people can't tell how many fingers are resting against their spine, for example. They can detect pressure but the objects have to exceed 2.5" or more before they detect multiple points. The end result in my case was that the needle felt like it was in the same spot for a long time, hammering away ruthlessly with no signs of progress. I couldn't see it being done either, so I'd put this at a 10 out of 10 of my pain capabilities. At one point my eyes watered involuntarily just from the intensity tweeking my system. Galen just sat back during the whole thing reading his book and chuckling at me. The endorphins were not of the usual type, this time rather subtle yet potent, I remember little of the drive home ... Galen piloted this (very wisely).

Long thanksgiving weekend ... had a lotta fun. It's worth remembering, and it was extra special being able to share it with someone.

That's all for now ...

Re: Damn dude.
It's my third tat now, first one was done three times (once for the reason you described, and once for some mods I wanted done to it later). My first tat I got 10 years ago when I had just turned 18. I still love the design to this day but I gotta say if I could have just 1 tattoo, it'd be the one I just got.

They're non K9, one on my left bicep about the size of a 3x5 postcard, other is on my right calf about 3x7" ... both are Deinonychus's (what most people see depicted as Velociraptors) and carry a strong symbolism towards endurance. Much like I'm enduring Galen scraping the plate with a steakknife at the moment as we eat, Deinonychus survived a brutal world for over 2 million years unchanged. We had similar sized brains, yet for all that I'm not confident we'll last as long ourselves. I'll save the weight of that discussion for another time.

As for where I got the design .. I was browsing the web and stumbled across a similar design. I asked the artist if he'd make me something for a tattoo and he did. I'd had it for about 18 months now, glancing at it fairly often trying to get a feel for if it was the right one.
