Currently the text looks a little faded, but over time the feather will lose a bit of the colour and they will match. I could get the text re-touched, but It doesn't really bother me for now. Putting sunscreen on the text and not the new part will help to even it out, since the UV rays from the sun fade tattoos over time.
A few people asked me if it hurt....the answer is yes, of course! The area right over the spine hurt the most, but since it was not solid black like text, it wasn't so bad.
I also have two chinese symbols on my hip that I'd like to add to. I've been looking around for inspiration on pinterest and around the internet, and I think I'd like to add some cherry blossoms to them. Cherry blossoms are a symbol of femininity and power in chinese culture (and, in Japanese, the fleetingness of life), and I appreciate the symbolism. Maybe in a few more years I'll get around to adding to it ;)
Do you have any tattoos?
