Playfully Permanent

I decided it would be good to complete all of my family tattoos while I was on this journey. My friend in Lima said that her sister had a good experience at Zhimpa Tattoos in Miraflores, so I booked an appointment.

The studio


I sent them a picture of Bastet, the Egyptian goddess of happiness and joy, and a picture of a cat playing with her tail upright. I told them I wanted the cat to be playing with a blue ball of yarn, since blue is her favourite colour. The artist took my ideas and made them purrfect!

The design


The artist used a needle gun I had never seen before. My friend tells me it is a cyclical needle. Apparently helps with the healing and doesn’t hurt as much. I am very grateful for this. Because the shoulder hurts a lot more than I thought it would. I am stoked with how it turned out. It is my second favourite, behind the owl of course.
