I finished my half sleeve a few weeks ago, but between being sick, stressed and healing time, I just hadn't got  a chance to post it yet. So, that's what I'm doing now.

So, those are some awkward pictures of my half-sleeve. I don't have a tripod right now, I'm looking for one, but I'm a broke girl, okay? :)

I'm sure you can tell, I'm a little bird obsessed. I've been a huge lover of owls my entire life, and I've always loved sparrows. This will not be the last of the sparrow tattoos, as I'm getting another one on my other arm, when I start my other sleeve. :)

And, in case you missed my last tattoo post, in addition to these, I also have a lily on my back, and a diamond on my ankle.

The lily was my very first tattoo, when I was 20 years old. 
The diamond I got on a Friday the 13th, it was $13, and it's a nice memory to have.

I have a lot more tattoos planned, and it's very exciting. Unfortunately, I've got no money to continue with it right now.
I also intend to get my nose re-pierced, as I had it done for 5 years, and I had to take it out for a job, and it healed up in 4 hours.

In case you didn't know, I also have my ears pierced 2x each, my navel pierced, and a Medusa, which is the piercing in the middle of my upper lip.

I don't find that tattoos are very painful, and I have a fear of needles. 
My sleeve took around 3 weeks to heal, but I feel it takes a bit longer to completely 100% heal.
I wash mine in anti bacterial soap 2x per day, and keep it moist with Tattoo Goo for the first week.
After the first week, I switch from Tattoo Goo to unscented lotion for the rest of the healing process.
Never scratch or pick at your tattoo!
Do not even touch it unless you're cleaning it or applying tattoo goo or lotion.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this post!
