Note: This imagine was requested back in January. I found it when I was looking back through my asks and I am so sorry I forgot to add it to my waiting list! It isn’t very long as I’ve never even set foot into a tattoo parlour before so I have no idea what happens, but I hope the requester enjoys anyway! ❤️x

“I’m so nervous about this,” you said to Sirius as you continued walking down the path into the village.
“Babe, I’ve had tattoos done and it doesn’t hurt at all, you’ll be fine!” Sirius assured you as he grabbed your hand and placed a kiss on your knuckles.
He pushed open the door to the studio and stepped inside. The lighting was dim, pieces of colourful art lining the walls. Two large black tattoo chairs were positioned at the back of the room, with a desk to the right as you walked in.
“Hi how are you today?” A woman asked from behind the desk. Her arms were covered in colourful tattoos, reaching to the top of her neck and flowing out of the bottom of her short sleeves.
“We’re great! My girlfriend,” Sirius gestured to you, “Wants a tattoo today.”
The woman nodded as she flipped the page of her sketchbook over to a blank one. “What were you thinking of love?”
You glanced at Sirius, who was already smiling at you before replying, “An elephant, with my sister’s initials within the outline?”
The woman nodded, her pencil moving across the page with ease as she began sketching the basics of your tattoo.
Your eyes wandered around the walls, looking at the intricate detailing of each piece of art.
“Something like this?” You turned to look at the sketch, and couldn’t help the smile that stretched across your face when you saw it.
The tattoo was exactly how you had imagined it in your head. You couldn’t believe all the extra details she had added.
“That’s perfect!” You gushed. The woman smiled at you, “As soon as you’re ready, hop into one of those chairs and I’ll get the outline set up for you.”
Sirius grabbed your hand again and took you over to the chairs. You sat down and breathed out slowly, “I can’t believe I’m doing this!”
“I’m proud of you, baby girl. You’ll love it once it’s done,” Sirius said as he sat on a stool by the side of the chair.
The woman walked across the studio to where you were. “Where do you want your tattoo?”
You pointed to the place where you wanted it to be, and she placed the outline against your skin. She then grabbed the needle and smiled at you, “Are you ready?” “Yes, I think so,” you said as you held onto Sirius’ hand harder.
“Then let’s begin!”
“Do you like it?” Sirius asked as you looked at your new tattoo in the mirror. “I love it! Thank you so much for coming with me,” you said as you traced a finger lightly across your tattoo, careful not to hurt yourself.
“You’re welcome baby. And may I just say that it looks really good on you,” Sirius said with a smirk, one hand reaching to hold your hip.
“Thank you, now lets go and show the others! I’m excited for them to see!” You pulled away and began to rush out of the dorm door.
“Wasn’t the activity I had in mind, but I guess that’s good too,” Sirius said with a shrug as he followed you out of the room.
