What you can't see is the end of the tail that wraps around my hip... next time!
Healing has been slow, since my very minimal psoriasis - gone for almost a year since I've been on a gluten/dairy-free diet - seems to have been triggered by the injury done to my skin by the lovely tattoo needles.
Healing the latest round was the hardest; probably due to holiday stress, lots of wine (to combat the holiday stress-- er, celebrate), the colder weather, a viral respiratory infection (fun!) and more friction against the area... 'cause I do like to wear pants + sit down every once in a while. Lesson(s) learned.
The plan going forward seems to be shorter + more spread-out sessions, no alcohol while I'm healing, fewer + more comfortable clothes, etc. It should also be easier to avoid a reaction when it gets warmer out. Which won't be too hard... my next appointment isn't until the first week in March, unless I get in on the cancellation list.
