Keep in mind that it looks a lot darker in the photos than it does after healing. The part on the middle of my back is more accurate, as that part was done in January!

I know it's rather large, and it's quite .. crazy. Obviously I love it, or I wouldn't have done it. The pattern is based on traditional Norwegian folk art, namely rosemaling (translates to rose painting). I guess growing up I always had an attraction to this part of Norwegian culture and history, and somehow I found myself down this path.
Edit: After Nicki's comment I have to add something about this... on an emotional level. I have wanted to do this for ages. Originally I was going to wait until I was ready. Ready meaning physically ready. Thin enough to get it, or good enough. Like I wasn't there already. But at some point I decided...... I am now. So I did it!
Hope you like it - if you don't, that's okay too. ;)
