Having a tattoo partially done is the weirdest feeling. Friends, family, and strangers see and comment on my ink, but my disclaimer of “It’s not finished yet” always follows. Lines don’t quite meet, parts are not shaded, and sections seem done on accident. So far it looks better than a lot of tattoos I’ve seen, but it will only get better.
I have more respect for people who have even larger tattoos, some of which take years to complete. It’s a long process, but so is life. “It’s the journey, not the destination” somewhat applies here. April 29th, bring it on!
