Goddess of Destruction?


Kali, Goddess of Death, Destruction & Rebirth, and Pain...



...And there she is folks, finally. Two hours under the tender care of Joe, at No Regrets Tattoo Emporium. Two hours. Two long, and surprisingly painful hours.

I'm booked back in early May for the colouring to begin, but noticed that the date coincides with some friends visiting from out of town for the Blues Awards, so I think I'll have to bump it to June. I can wait though. Did I mention that this one was painful...

Nice! I imagine it was painful too - but worth it.

tideliar said...

Very. Very painful. Surprisingly fucking painful actually!

Oh, cool! I love it! What kind of colours will you go for eventually?

tideliar said...

I reckon she will be shaded blue/black, loads of reds for the gore, an then I'll probably go for a golden halo :)

Probably another 3-4 more hours of work to be done yet...

Ouch!

The itching phase has begun. My superhero-like powers of healing mean the ink is set and beginning to scab. But now all the hair on the side of my body is starting to grow back and it is ITCHING LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER and one *cannot* scratch.

(they shave the area to be tattooed, for those who haven't undergone the process)

Dr.Girlfriend said...

Actually, I think they only shave you if you are a hairy guy ;)

tideliar said...

Ha ha, I think you can tell from that photo that "hairy guy" is only about 50% accurate for me :)

It looks really cool and painful all at the same time. Can't wait to see what it looks like with color. I have no tattoos. I really want one, but I have no freaking idea what I want. How did you arrive at this?

tideliar said...

The background idea is complicated, and I have learned not to explain why I choose the designs I have. It makes sense in my head, but when you try and explain it to someone else, you can't get the feelings/emotions behind your decision out correctly and look like an ass :)

Suffice-it-to-say it goes with a theme that also reflects my personality. I have Pan/Cernunnos on my left bicep and the Eye of Horus on my right shoulder too (the Tideliar image/avatar).

Sweet ink!
