she did really well... there was a little crying and a SHIT TON OF PROFANITY. the mouth on this little sister can turn your hair white, but it was highly entertaining. HIGHLY. i've never heard such things about Mother Teresa.

she stuck out the whole thing though, she handled it and went nice and zen. we took turns telling her distracting stories, supplying sugar, and holding her hands

verdict: it was totally worth the pain :) i kept reminding her - you'll forget how much it hurt... but you'll always love the tat...

we had some concerns about the placement of the birdie... so she modeled standing up as well

halfway done. when asked about the pain, she said what i'd said, basically that it's bearable... but not something i'd look forward to. it gets intense after a while but not too much to handle.
