Tattoo Update - Second Session

It's been a few weeks now, but I got to work on my tattoo again.  I thought I'd share a before and after photo with you.  The first photo is the healed, pretty line work.  The second photo includes a couple progress shots during the second session. 
Gabe tattooed me for around four and a half hours, and it wasn't terrible.  I did learn, though, that my skin bruises and swells like crazy.  That purple that you see in the photo is not ink.  It's definitely my skin freaking the eff out.  I was sore for a few days, and it started peeling within the first week.  Over the weeks, my tattoo peeled twice, and a few spots even peeled three times. Healing tattoos are weird.

I'm so excited to start working on the flowers! I'm ready to finish this!
