Three days after tattooing. Still dealing with a considerable amount of swelling and extra redness, which is to be expected 7-10 days after tattooing such a large area. It will be a little while yet before I can see how the tattoo pigment exactly turned out. You can see some of the swelling has gone down at the base of the shaft, maybe to halfway up the length. Today it feels tender, like a sunburn, and is ungainly in my clothes. It won’t bend properly in the groin pouch while swollen. It’s a small inconvenience, but I’m glad I’m not at work with this. In other news, I am getting ready for the Philly Trans Health Conference which is going on later this week. Looking forward to seeing people there.
