My first tattoo was not a very difficult decision. I already had in mind exactly what I wanted. And it could be easily covered up if needed to.
My tatt artist, Charlie Cu, was super cool. (Although I heard he does not do Hello Kitty tattoos anymore *sad face*). And the whole process took around 45 mins long. It was somewhat painful but my brother was there for support.
No regrets so far! Not even when I get old and fat and it get becomes fat kitty instead! Just kidding! Asians don’t get old.
