I did it! I gave myself a tattoo*!

*Ok, it’s not really a tattoo, and hopefully it is not permanent.

I stayed up really late Monday night doing paperwork and was just wrapping up some stuff I had been writing (with an actual pen instead of something less hazardous, like typing on a keyboard).

The pen is new and it’s kind of hard to make the cap snap back on so I took the pen and jammed down on it with my palm to push the cap down.

Except that I had the cap on the wrong side of the pen and what I actually did was stab myself REALLY REALLY hard in the center of my right palm with a sharp black pen.

Oh holy mother of all things good and evil… gawd it hurt so bad!

This happened at around 3am, which told me that I was probably tired and should probably go to bed soon. I got some rubbing alcohol to disinfect the stab wound but considering I have ink inside the stab wound, it’s no wonder it still hurts almost 24 hours later.

It had stopped bleeding by the time I had gone to bed, but when I woke up in the morning, my hand was really sore.

And yes, you can see the one black spot where I accidentally “tattooed” my own hand.

I rule.
