Hurdles

So yesterday I went in to get my tattoo sleeve removed, it’s something that I have been wanting to do for a while. The sleeve is a two parter, on the upper half I did after my niece passed away and I was in a very bad spot emotionally and it was my way of dealing with it. The bottom half I did of two skulls that represented myself and my now ex wife of 14 years.

When I sat down in the chair the technician was about to start and I couldn’t let him laser the lower half. For the life of me I don’t know why, I don’t still love my ex in that way anymore especially after what she put me through during the divorce. However I couldn’t fathom the thought of those skulls not being apart of me anymore. It was a very strange feeling one I’m not accustomed to and it leaves me wondering why? On the positive side the upper part of the sleeve had it’s first round of laser, the technician said I would need about 3 more sessions before I could have it covered up with something else, I’m thinking Star Wars theme…lol
