Mine's smack in between my shoulder blades...the only part that hurt like all heck was over the spine. I don't think the shoulder blade would be bad at all...

I've thought about getting a tattoo since i have 18, but I've never been able to settle on a design that I thought I'd like forever...So I am still tattoo-less.

I think they're cool though.

like my first tattoo was a heart with two butterflies ...(and girls, if you are getting a first don't go with a butterfly, you may think it's unique but just about every female with a tattoo has a butterfly, it's almost like law), but it signifies my grandfather who died and my mother who had/has heart problems.

One of the neatest I've heard of was a guy who had each of his baby's first echo?cardiogram lines done on his arm.

The only one I have right now is of fire and ice...which signifies me...it's not a 'pretty' tattoo, but it has meaning...to me.

I want the quote "love is not when you feel only pain" tattooed on my head, like behind my ears, but along the hair line to be exact. However as of this point, it's still iffy. But to count how many i want, it's at least 13 more. laugh

I've thought about shoulder blade, but wasn't sure since there's not much meat there. Hip? I just can't really see me dropped my pants in a room full of strangers. For a couple of hours. blush I'm not terribly modest, but that's a bit much even for me. Besides...a good friend (who does have tats) told me to make sure and never put one anywhere that will stretch with weight gain. Pregnancy did *NO* favors for the wreath around her belly button.


I too can speak for that. The flower and Greek letters near my belly button will never be the same.

Oh well they pale in comparison to the massive transplant scar smile

Make sure you think about this one, Spooky...I had really long hair my entire life (with rare exception) and now cut it really short so I can drench it in the summer and shake and go...I wouldn't have ever thought about having short hair much less about a hair line being visible until now!

Nope:

Read it over, print it out, and answer the following questions before you agree to be tattooed. It could save you from an ugly mistakeóor a deadly one.

Your Artist:
Do you have a recommendation from a satisfied customer?
Have you looked at his/her book of work?
Have you had a consultation about your ideas?

Your Design:
Do you have an image or sketch of your idea to bring to the parlor?
Will your design fit in the space where you want it? Will details be lost making it fit?
Are you sure you want this design on your body forever?

Your Price Range:
Can you afford it? Keep in mind: Most artists charge around $150 per hour.

Your Health:
Are you diabetic? If yes, have you consulted your doctor? A tattoo might not be a good idea for you.
Do you have eczema? If yes, do not get tattooed in the affected area.
Do you have psoriasis? People with psoriasis should not get tattooed.
Are there pimples in the area you want to be tattooed? If so, wait for the area to heal.
Is there a mole in the area where you want the tattoo? Donít get it there. It will bleed. A lot.
Do you have HIV? If yes, consult your doctor before you get tattooed.
Do you have Hepatitis C? If yes, consult your doctor before you get tattooed.

Your Safety:
Have you seen the artistís autoclave sterilization system and autoclave certification?
Is the artist using new needles? Did you see him remove the needles from a sterile bag?
Is your artist wearing gloves?

Well I already have one on the back of my neck, "We are, what we are, what we shall be." I had a pixie cut once, and i hated it with so much passion, so I doubt I'll ever go back to short hair.

haha..I thought the same thing, Spooky, but guess what...as bad as I hated it short at 15, it's not even the same now...I think it's the difference between a "bad" cut and a good one, maybe?

Thanks for posting the list, Eggcited...I passed, which is good! haha...I actually had fun when I went (on my sons' recommendation) and told the guys what I wanted and they went to town to see who could invent the winning design. wink

It's not exactly what I had envisioned, but it turned out the easiest to decipher.

Curled up by the fire...
I have one that wraps around my ankle down onto the top of my foot and I won't like. It hurt like the dickens.
I also have one on my lower back and one on my neck.
I think it's the closer to the bone the worse it hurts, right?

Nunzie has a cute tat behind her ear.

I have one on my hip, back of my neck, lower back, top of my foot, one on my shouler and a set on my shoulder blades. =]


I want a set behind my ears, one wrapping down one leg, and another down the other, one on my ankle, one on my other hip, one actually on my ear, one possibly wrapping around my waist, one on my other shoulder, color on my wings.

That's just a few =]
