8.5.12 『え！いたーい！』 (=Woah! It huuurts!)
My breakfast/lunch: Knorr soup deli, tomato pasta soup. SO GOOD ;;_;; <3 mixed some bread to it oh god yum yum these cup foods are so easyyy
Today I went to a tattoo studio La Perra Negra Dolce 13 to get my tattoo done! The owner/tattoo artist Aya is very nice :)
She’s finishing it
I was surprised when I asked her how long it’d take to get it done and she said “about 1h or 1,5h”. I thought it’d be like 3 hours :D
her sketch of my tattoo
It took about 1,5h to get it done. I decided to get cherry blossoms as a symbol of my love for Japan. Taking this tattoo in Japan makes it extra special!
Taking the tattoo itself was alright but because she started where my hip bone is, it hurted a lot at first. It got better when she moved towards my lower belly though :) so no tragical memories!
The cost was 20 000yen (=192€/250$). I think that’s reasonable because
1) She designed it herself out of pretty much nowhere. Only had heard some wishes from me and rest was up to her. And I just love the tattoo! Such a perfect design, just how I wanted it :)!
2) It’s in colors
3) The area where it is is about 8x8 cm /3x3 inches so I think that’s not huge but not any small either (?)
After getting my tattoo I just walked to Harajuku through Yoyogi park. There were these vending machines near the tattoo studio. There’s also a Asahi Beer machine. One of the cans was huge! 1 liter!
Homes and belongings of the homeless people :<
In Harajuku I went to the Virgin Mary shop again because I had some Finnish candies + a few euros to give to Ari and other stuff as a present. They were so nice~! xxx They took a photo of me with Ari and Kummy and Ari said she will put it to the Virgin Mary blog later :) cute xxx
After going to the Virgin Mary I visited this hippie shop nearby and bought some nice stuff, for myself and some others… >:3 xxx
That’s it :)
I’ll post a photo of the tattoo later xxx
