11. I wonder how much the artist will judge me on my tattoo.

12. I wonder how much she'll judge me if I cry.

13. That has to be pretty common, right?

14. Now she is leading me to another room.

15. At least if I cry nobody else will see.

18. Oh my god she's holding the needle. Oh my god she's holding the needle.

19. These needles are safe, right?

41. Aaaahhh it's perfect!

42. Wow I can't believe I just got a tattoo.



45. Wait, it's being covered up now.

46. Bye, bye tattoo! I'll see you soon bb.
