........yes, finally !!! It had been in my mind for a long time now. I was waiting for a company, didn’t know how to approach such places all by myself. Enquired about the safest place from some of my close friends and ended up in one. It was dingy, a little shady, but such places are supposed to be this way; after all most of them aren’t under legal supervision.
I was a little skeptical at the moment, a little perturbed, but something kept saying it’s now or never. I’ve heard from people with prior experience claiming that it is going to be painful only for the first time. They even scared me by saying that there would be a lot of blood. Well, it did pain, I wouldn’t disagree but then, the pain is bearable and at the end of it, there is a pleasure awaiting you. And as the old saying goes, no pain, no gain ! Moreover, we had fun doing it, we shared jokes; we gossiped, we discussed about the pros and cons, the skin was played with and yet we didn’t lose concentration on what we were doing. There was also this sense of satisfaction when you know that you finally did something that you longed for.
I am sure people would start judging me for this as it is still considered as a taboo, atleast in India. But I feel these days’ guys and gals do it just like drinking tea and yeah, who cares when there are other bigger issues for people to ponder. I was told that I should’ve tried this a couple of years ago, and, at this age I should be more responsible. My friends even warned that I would end up having A.I.D.S. or related sexually transmitted diseases. I didn’t think twice, or rather, I didn’t want to. But after whatever happened, I repented, which again, according to my friends is very common and something they had warned me about. I had to tell my parents because I don’t hide anything from them. They were mad like all other parents; and also asked me if I was so desperate and frustrated with my life to have gone ahead with it. I wouldn’t blame them; they wouldn’t have expected their son to go to this extent. Now that it remains a permanent scar, I can not possibly do anything. I just love my new tattoo and that’s all it matters !
