New ink, yay :]

Hot off the presses.

Hi, I enjoy being tattooed.

It's a Viola odorata, or sweet violet. I was nervous, since it's only my second tattoo and my first one was tiny and all black (no shading), but it was f-a-s-t and once the adrenaline kicked in, I loved it! Tattoo is by Karen Slafter at Spellbound Tattoo in Austin, TX; photos are by my friend and photographer Cassie Rose, with her non-professional phone camera ;]

(And Lish, you'll be happy to know that her aftercare instructions are the same as you recommend. I was super happy about that.)
