(at Lucky Prick Tattoo)
Artist: Lee Mullen at Cicada Tattoo
When: January 2020
Pain Level: 4
Why: Why not? It’s a wizard toad!!! It’s magical as fuck! Okay real talk, I became friends with Lee when he did two of my other tats about a month before; this magical lil dude was from his flash and he posted it on his IG (go follow him!!! IG: leefscented). He was lookin for people to tattoo for his portfolio and I wanted to not only help him out but get this rad design. It was a win win!
Experience: Like I said, I had met Lee a couple months before this tat at the shop so getting this tattoo was fun! He’s a super chill dude and in the super busy, multi-artist shop environment it was nice to have that balance with my artist.
This was the longest I sat for a tattoo! About 5 ½ hours. I thought it was going to be more painful than it actually was which was a nice surprise. I can get my thighs tattooed all day long but I figured since inner thigh was as painful as it was, back of thigh would be similarly pain wise. Alas! It was not! In fact, I sat so well a couple people noted it after I was done that I’m tough as hell which was rad to hear.
Something I’ve found super interesting are some people’s reactions to this tattoo; most people love him (duh), but I’ve definitely been asked the “well what does it mean??” And some puzzled looks. I think tattoos are very personal, and wether or not they do have a meaning is really nobody’s business. Don’t get me wrong, I love talking about my tattoos and can do so all damn day, but I don’t appreciate being questioned or judged for choices I’ve decided for MY body and art. Bottom line, I love it and I don’t give a fuck what others think.
I’m over the moon about this tattoo. I think it’s so fun, and I’m super proud to have my friend’s work on me!
