So, I got my lips tattooed again (for the third time) this time they only used topical numbing creme, the two times before hand, I had been injected with anesthetic. I cannot believe I had forgotten the recovery as much as I did. The peeling, pain, itching and looking crazy to the outside world is significant for a few days.
In the end for the next 3-7 years I will be happy to not have to wear lipstick in order to look like I made an effort, since I am not a person who likes to wear much makeup, much less to re apply throughout the day. I can quite literally go to the bathroom or pass up mirrors all day long and not look into them. I don’t really care. I wish I did sometimes, but I don’t, I find it frivolous and shallow. To each is own as they say.
Thankful, Grateful and Blessed!
