Had a Chest Piece Started Last Week and Love It Now Feel Super Regret
- 6 days ago
So I've waited years to have my chest piece done and I've got other tattoos on my feet hips and fingers and I've never felt regret with any of them. Initially I was so happy and the artist is really talented and they've done nothing wrong.
I had a nightmare on Monday night and was feeling sketchy and then then I rang up yesterday to book my next session to get the colour put in and ever since I've been feeling sick with anxiety. I've managed to get hardly any work done.
I'm due to go travelling in South America for 6 months shortly. I've been waiting to take this trip for ages and I was like I want to go and explore the world with this tattoo. Now however I'm in total knots and dreading my trip :( thinking I'm not going to look how I did and the trip is ruined as there's nothing I can do. I realise I'm probably completely over reacting but I just feel in pieces. All my friends think it's lovely and one said once I have the colour in and it's settled into the skin I feel differently. I just don't know what to do whether to go ahead with finishing it or go away with it unfinished and see about removal when I come home because I assume it's easier to just remove the black lines. I've read lots of post though where people have said this panic subsides and they're happy again. I'm just really upset and mad with myself.
