During the Extra Life event last year, Keri and I went to my local tattoo parlor and had some Zelda themed tattoos injected into our skin. We both got the Hylian crest, and I also added a second tattoo in the theme of the Master Sword and shield. It was a ton of fun, and we are now bonded by our tattoo experience.
Sadly, my body rejects ink. It’s a nice feature as cuts tend not to get infected, but it also sucks as I have to go in two, sometimes three, times in order for the tattoo to look complete. Well, yesterday was one such day. It’s finally warm enough that I can wear short sleeve shirts. Thus, I am now able to go in to get my Zelda tattoos touched up. However on a whim, when I was scheduling my appointment I figured I’m already there so why not just get another tattoo as well. CRAZINESS! Why is going through that pain so damn addicting?
This morning I woke up to find my arms hurt and some new ink staring back at me. I do wish Keri were here, as that was just a fun experience with some memories that still make me smile. I did get to talk all kinds of video game stuff with my tattoo artist as he is also a big gamer. It was a fun night. Now to wait for the dreaded itching as these things heal.
