sewandsew, I love that! It's simply beautiful. I know just what you mean about it looking like an illustration. It kind of looks like one you would see in a nature biology book or something. Very cool.

Sewandsew - do you ever let people colour in your tat with markers?  I would have endless fun with that at parties.

now a few years later im still thinking about it how bad pain wise is the inside of your elbow for a tattoo? i think this is a good place for what i have in mind. from what ive heard on the net it is realy sensitive but i cant find many experiences stories about this area so i was wondering could anybody help out?

I'm working on a whole sleeve, and last session the inside of my elbow did get filled in.  And I can say, it does hurt.  Of course everyone's pain tolerance is different, but I can say that having the outside, on the bone of my elbow has been my worst pain on my entire arm.

So yeah, the inside did hurt a bit more than some other spots, but I think the hardest part was during the healing.  Since that skin gets folded on itself all the time, it was pretty irritated.  It did scab a bit more than usual, and I have a little bit of scaring right in a crease, but I would do it again.  If you have something worked out for a perfect spot, I would say go for it.  At the worst, you'll be miserable for a week or so, but then you've earned it, and anyone else who has one in the same place knows exactly what you went through for your art.  Grin

thanks, yeah i was worrying about how it would heal because of the position. what i am wanting is the origin of love symbol, yep, from hedwig, my favourite move, i just love it and what it means , its from a story from platos symposium, a love that cannot be put into words, two halves trying to become a whole. im wanting this symbol inside a compass for various reasons .. i love the look of them and for my grandad who was in the navy and past away a couple of years ago. im still sketching and looking for inspiration, mainly for the perfect compass. i want it on the inside of my elbow or maybe just above it.

Hey this is my first tat.  I got it in July of this year and I absolutly LOVE it Grin.  It is on my right ribs.  It hurt sooooooooooo much though Cry. I would not suggest this place and size for anyone for their first tattoo.  Sorry for the shine.  I want to get an array of stars on the other side of my ribs next and then a heart shaped lock I drew up.

I just got the origin of love symbol on my forearm earlier this year!  I love it too!  It's funny how many people stop to ask me what it means and then give me a funny look when I tell them it's from a movie.  But then again there are the few Hedwig fans out there who recognize it and admire the tattoo.  Post pictures if you get it done!!!

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.
