My First "Tattoo" and the Birthday Dinner


Here's how I spent the special day:


First activity (after spending half of the day in bed answering tweets and FB greetings...THANK YOU GUYS! I felt the love!), someone suggested in my post before that I spend my birthday doing something na TAKOT ako gawin. Para memorable!

I thought that time, ano kaya yun... hangout with ipis and daga? Nyaha. And then a few days before my bday, I realized what's that one thing na I am scared to do but really really wanna do before pa: Get a tattoo!!!


But I didn't get the usual pretty prettyhan or kickass tat...I actually headed to Festival Mall's Let's Face It salon....for an Eyeliner Tattoo! :D

Kabado meeeeeee!!!!!


Nakakatawa, I was undecided! Nanginginig ako ng bongga, and ang daaami kong tanong sa Beauty Tattoo Artist! 

Me: Hay ate nag kape pa kasi ako!
Ate Noemi: *NR*
Nyahaha!


Nung pinahiga nako, yinakap ko talaga yun Paisley Clothing satchel ko! I realized, shet thisisit! Now or Never! Do this and forever change my fez! Hahaha! :D Omg! Gusto ko ba talaga to! *Kabog ng dibdib*

Narealize ko I should have told my mom about this para may kaakap sana ako nun o kaholding hands during the process. Nun pinahid na yun anesthesia sa mata ko, nag twitch ng bongga!


Ate Noemi: Iwas nalang po ng pag twitch makirot po sa mata pag pumasok, pero hindi naman po nakaka bulag.
Me: (Hindi naman pala nakakabulag e! Lol.) Shet ate pwede ba iwipe muna!!! (Gusto na bumack out)
Ate: Naku nalagay na po hindi na po kayang tanggalin.


Me: 1....2...3....4...Count the sheep...think of calming scenes...waterfalls...Mag isip ng mga bagay noong nakaraan na mas masakit pa dito (chos).. So Ate, nag tatattoo din po ba kayo nun may design? Mga flowers ganon?
Ate Noemi: Ay hindi iba yun...
Me: Ahhhh ok. (dead silence nanaman)

Me: (Few minutes later...Still nervous, biglang nag hallucinate na ako ng bongga) Shet talaga pag ako nabulag *flashback mode* shet patay ako sa nanay ko. Shet wala na Anagon Collection! Huhuhu!)


Anyway, to make my exagge-lang but true story short, bearable naman pala ang pain! Nakakakaba lang talaga na sa isang dilat ko lang or maling move ng hand ni ate, tatama talaga yun tattoo pen sa eyes ko and that's it na sakin, wah! Naisip ko after doing this... Pwede na ako mag real design-design hardcore tat...Potek malayo sa mata yun!!!


Right after the session...namamaga pa ang mata, hindi naman masyado drastic ang change! :)
Let's Face It Upper Eyeliner Tattoo - P1680


I can go back daw in same branch for retouch after 2 weeks to a month, paheal daw muna yung unang layer. And free na yung second process. Happy ako actually! :) Thank you fellow blogger Aie Corpus for making me aware of this eyeliner tattoo! :)


Close up of first layer, nipis pa!


Aie: I love it! No regrets! O diba, pag gising ko, bongga!
Oo nga naman, biro mo kahit sa beach naka eyeliner na lola nyo! Nyahaha.

After that, on to shopping na for birthday dinner! First time to eat birthday dinner at home because we usually just dine out, so we decided to order the feeling "best of the best", haha! Mom helped me with buying the foods! =) Also prepared cutesy paper plates, cups, etc to make the setup psychedelic-- hippieng hippie lang! :)



Leaving you with pictures of the dinner! :)

Baked Ziti from Sbarro


Chicken Nuggets from Mcdo

Pepperoni Crunch (and Mojos) from Shakeys



 Patable setting kuno



Mom and Dad! :)













Again, thank you all for making me happy on my 26th :) 
Love Love Love!
<3



PS: Dear reader Vina Yabut tweeted me and naalala ko she was the one who suggested yung gumawa ng something I fear on my birthday! :) Thank you so much sis! :)
