oh my gosh, its a lovely tattoo , its like the ones in africa where they rub earth in the wound to create scarring for a raised texture, wow.The Haiku is perfect,
Oh my the comment about rubbing earth into the wound made me shudder. Have a great day, L.
it's still pretty nice... despite the pain... but then i heart dragonflies.
So your body's reaction created a permanent branding? You know, some people actually willingly get branded. Personally, I think it's pretty rockin. Not the fact that you were in crazy pain for months, but the fact that this is on you forever.
Howling wolf to dragonfly ... WOW and ouch!
Wow! At least you can tell what it is and there's no ink to fade with the passage of time... trying to look on the bright side! Your Haiku is great :)
Ill stick with my real "INK" tattoos thank you.Glad they figured out what caused the reaction!
scary!...but it inspired a great haiku!
Yikes. That is terrible The Haiku almost makes up for it.
Part one looked mighty painful.
The best thing to do with one's pain. Nice illustration, too. Is that you?
wait....this isn't the tat. what am i missing? i am guessing it went away and then you painted this? or am i being a bit dull today?
I love the poem, but I'm sorry to say it's not a Haiku because it doesn't follow the 5,7,5 rule.
Sorry, everyone, guess I wasn't as clear as I might have been! The photos in today's post (Part 3) and yesterday's post (Part 2) are random photos of allergic contact dermatitis tattoos that I got from the internet, because I don't have a photo of my howling wolf tattoo when it was in that state. I just have the photo used in Part 1 when it was freshly inked and before the reaction started.
haha...at least i was close! if you have eaten polents, you have eaten grits!
Ack! The plot thickens...
That does look itchy!!
At least you don't have an indelible Tasmanian Devil tattoo ; )
Ouch! I do like the design, shame it's not quite what you wanted though!
Well it is a nice shade of pink, and hey, textured...you are a trend setter Debra... everyone will want a raised pink tat now!
Really, this is actually pretty cool looking if it wasn't itchy. :-) I absolutely love henna designs; I think they're beautiful. I knew about the black ink, but honestly don't think I would've even thought of it in getting a henna design in Mexico. I love the Mayan Riviera area, too! Only been twice and both times I wanted to move there to live. Even looked at properties online. Glad your itching is over!
I was going to write about how sore it looked. I was surprised that you had gone and gotten another one - then I read your comment. Thank heavens. Great haiku!
Makes me so curious. Nice work.
Great Haiku! Not so great rash. I'm glad you mentioned this, because I almost got myself one too while in Mexico. I was thinking "next time" - but not now!
Great pain brings on greater art.I love the haiku!
i live with acute tendinitis, both hands, a crushed vertebra, from my 20s [now surrounded by arthritis and osteo] and NO intention of giving myself further pain to have deal with, daily... thankyouverymuch....
Congrats on being published!
