“Heart Meaning Transplant, Part 3”

                             The late 2013 through late 2016 period of my personal life was mostly a waste as I look back on it now. And as to why that was the case, well it resulted in a lot of pointless nights out on the town, along with having my mind set on a girl that is no longer worthy of such a feat.

Of course, the third Friday of June 2014 resulted in another night on the town, which was also yet another empty trip, as the girl that I regrettably liked at the time wasn’t there. And that was just as well, as I had an early afternoon appointment with Erin at Scorpion the very next day.

Of course, the very next day did inevitably come, as I woke up at 9:30 A.M. Eastern time. However, I didn’t have to go to Scorpion right away, as my appointment was at 1 P.M. Eastern time that day. So with that being said, I spent my time drawing, taking a shower, finding a way to justify leaving my day job and having breakfast.

After leaving my house to go withdraw money for my appointment, I arrived at Scorpion. And as soon as I entered the building, Erin was ready to tattoo me. But before that could happen, the steps of preparing the stencil, prepping the area and applying the aforementioned stencil all had to commence, to which they all eventually did. And after a few minutes of drying time, it was showtime.

The experience pain-wise for this piece was that it hurt as much as getting stung by a wasp, due to the stencil being placed on an entirely bone. But it was also a small tattoo, as well as a short session (half an hour), so the pain wasn’t overly excruciating.

After the aforementioned half hour, tattoo number 112 was a wrap. And just like its 111 predecessors, it came out awesome.

After snapping a picture of the piece with my iPhone, Erin bandaged me up. I then cashed out with her, we then gave each other a hug and finally went our separate ways, with her going back to doing more drawing and me heading home before an event that you’ll find out about on Saturday.

To be continued.
