I had an exhausting morning full of doctor’s appointments, and had to do a very, very precise tattoo as my first piece of art for the day!
Circles are incredibly difficult to tattoo, and doing six of them with matching consistencies…well…that’s a very tall order. I’m proud of how this one turned out, though!
My warmup was actually done AFTER I did my tattoo for the day. And I could tell that my brain and body were DONE with precision. This is one of the sloppiest practice pages I’ve done in a long time.
I decided to call it a day and get an early start tomorrow after the poorly executed practice page.
What went well?
- Intense focus during a very precise tattoo.
- Going home a little earlier today.
What needs work?
- Managing my attention in the mornings.
- Somehow fixing my back pain after a tattoo.
What did I learn?
Warmups need to come first. When they happen AFTER a major-focus task…they just don’t go well.
Also, if my morning gets “shot” — the rest of my day is always a little bit “off.”
