La Catrina – fresh ink by Fredi Tut at Rana Roja Tattoo in Sam Cristobal de La Casa, Chiapas, Mexico. Was in love with it until a few hours before bed last night, and I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed with post-tat anxiety since.

  1. This is a beautiful tattoo! It seems you have a lot of meaning and the symbolism is very powerful for you. You picked an excellent artist who did a great job. If you still don’t like in once it’s healed, maybe you don’t like and that’s ok too. If that happens, there’s always laser treatments. Be patient with yourself during this post-tattoo adjustment period.

  2. Just context. I’ve been travelling all around Mexico for 6 months and wanted to get inked with something beautiful that represented my love for the country and culture before we head South into Guatemala.

    Anyways, the image is based on a painting I fell in love with, and I really resonate with the La Catrina symbolism with life and death. In a nice coincidence my birthday happens to be Dia de los Muertos.

    I know there is the normal shock/anxiety/getting used to period post tattoo, I’m just feeling really overwhelmed by that in the last 12-24 hours and don’t remember it being this bad after my others. Maybe the size? I donno.. I don’t know if I’m looking for reassurance and support or what, just thought I might be able to find some comfort in this great community.
