Courtney got this tattoo when she was 20 and living in London. She had been sketching this design on a pad for a while and one night when she was a little drunk she decided it was time to make it permanent. She got it at a nasty little shop by Hyde Park and the next day she was more worried about hepatitis than what her parents would say. Instead of gauze they put plastic wrap on it and when she woke up the blood was smeared everywhere. She got it redone about four years later to touch it up and make it look better. She might add to it, but no plans in the immediate future. When she first got it, her friends all told her it would not hurt, but she still feels the pain today.
