I didn’t mind spending months and months searching out a tattoo artist. But now that I have that all lined up, it’s the waiting. In my case, since I want it done at the end of the summer (so I don’t mess up sun and water time like I did last year), and Gunnar only books 3 months out, I am to call him the beginning of June to set up the appointment ofr late Aug/early Sept. As impatient as I am now that I got on the horse for my second, it’s also my doing that I have to wait. I find myself thinking about it often, and wondering what I’ll have when this whole process is done.So I set myself up for 6 months of tattoo agony.
