I have achieved this aim!
I went to Chongqing during my travels and had a chat with Mr Li, who works at Tina's Hostel. he's become a good friend and we were talking about tattoos. I told him what i wanted and he said that he knew somewhere to go. So, the next day, we trooped off to the tattooist (www.dj-tattoo.com) and had a word with him. It was arranged!
This weekend, i decided to treat myself for my birthday. I went to get my tattoo.
Yes, i am wearing pyjama trousers...i needed soft, loose trousers because the tattoo is on my thigh.
I feel that i should point out a few things. I am a trained Body Piercer. I know what i am looking for in a good studio. It must e clean, have a good amount of sterile equipment, and should meet my strict safety standards. This is the second studio i looked at, and it was good. Everything was covered so that cleanup was clean, it was clean, the people working there were clean and tidy and wore gloves at all times.
It is healing nicely, and still looks good. I think it needs a little touching up here and there, but that's to be expected with any tattoo.
