In case my previous post on the matter wasn't clear, I did get a tattoo about two weeks ago. I wanted to talk about it, but I also wanted to wait until everyone important had a chance to see it physically. I didn't get a chance to complete that until over this weekend. Both my parents, my kids and all my siblings have now seen it.
Did it hurt? you might ask.
Compared to what? I should reply. I should further answer with
No more than usual, and point to the last month as explanation. But I'm afraid that would get lost in translation somewhere.
No, the physical pain was very remote and removed. I didn't even flinch once.
