 A Body of Art Tattoo Personal Experience


Your first tattoo is a very special thing.  The emotions that run through your body as you take walk through those doors are something you shall never forget.  It has been nearly a year since I got my first tattoo and I can still recall each and every moment.

I had returned home for my first tattoo.  The location, Defiant Tattoo & Caffeine Bar, had come highly recommended and the art I'd seen being produced by the shop was top notch.  For my first, I chose something relatively simple - Superman.  I'd long wanted to immortalize the man of steel onto my body, but I didn't want to Clark Kent to be on my body.  I needed something uniquely, Nick Young.  My dear friend, Aaron, had helped me decide upon a mechanical rendering of the classic Superman logo.  One which combined metallics and rivets to the standard "S."

I entered the shop and prepared myself for the worst; however, once my artist, Holly, had began I was relieved.  I found the pain to be somewhat soothing.  I lost myself in the process, and when she had finally finished I awoke more than just Nick Young.  I had become the Man of Steel and thus began my journey.
