You were finally going to do it. After a year of contemplating, you had found the perfect tattoo to go under your collarbone. That was step one, you spent another month looking up all the tattoo parlors in the neighborhood and ultimately choosing one that had good reviews and modest prices. Today was your appointment and as you left your front door and entered the summer heat, you could feel the urge to chicken out clawing at the back of your mind.

No.

This has been put off for far too long. It was now or never. So you took a deep breath and continued the trek to the bus. 20 minutes later you found yourself outside the parlor, 5 minutes earlier than the time you set with the man on the phone. You stared at the door as if it was going to open and pull you in itself but, you had to make the move. With the last burst of confidence you had, you swung open the door and stepped inside. Waiting there to greet you was a man with medium brown hair and dark green eyes, his tank top left little to the imagination as your eyes were instantly pulled to his many tattoos over his arms and shoulders, stopping right at his neck. He glanced up as the doorbell rang, giving you a small smile as you made your way over.

Not pictured: Snake only going for a morning jog to get groceries for him and Otacon. The last thing Hal expected was a bloody forearm wrapped in cling wrap to hand him him milk and eggs after three hours.

For anyone planning to tattoo on self harm scars:

This is my advice to you. I recently tattooed over mine, and I wanted to share my experience. First off, you feel the tattoo needle going over every single scar. And I mean every one. It hurt far more then my other tattoo, which was expected, but I wasn’t prepared to feel it pull on every scar. Secondly, after the tattoo was finished it had the same feeling of cuts that weren’t very deep. That stinging burning sensation that was triggering, for me at least, but not quite as bad as having the actual cuts there and it went away relatively soon after. Thirdly, while it was healing it also had the same sensation as the not-so-deep cuts had while they healed. Again slightly triggering…basically for all my followers out there that maybe be thinking of tattooing over your scars I wanted you all to have a heads up on what to expect.
