What’s The Story Behind It?

I wanted an otter tattoo for a while as they’re my favourite animal. I had seen Demi’s work on Instagram as she was currently working at a shop I had other work done at. Her designs are super cute so I decided to get her to design me an otter, I have no regrets, he is the cutest.

Who Was The Tattoo Artist?

My otter tattoo came from @demidots_tattoo she is based in Boothstown, Manchester, UK and specialises in dot work.

Did It Hurt, Were You Brave?

It hurt a little but being on the back of my shoulder it didn’t hurt as much as some of my others. It got annoying and uncomfortable at times but it was definitely bearable. I find colour tattoos hurt more and if it’s on an area of thinner skin it will definitely hurt more.
