WOW Herbavore... BEAUTIFUL!!!  The Dia De Los Muertos Skulls are Wonderful. I'm Getting one in the middle of my petunias on my back. I've been designing it for quite sometime now, just don't want to rush it.I Want it PERFECT. I THink Celebrating Life rather than Mouning Death is an Incredible Thing. I've been following Dia de los muertos since I could Remember. It's a Wonderful thing,and I've learned alot from my Grandparents and parents from it...Wonderful job!!!  Wink

I finally got my new tattoo today! I know I haven't mentioned it before, but after a few letdowns on the part of the first artist I was going to use I was loathe to talk about it lest I jinx it or something. Fortunately, the second (better) artist I worked with didn't let me down at all and did a lovely outline-free ouroboros on my back, which I will show off once it's not quite so red and bleeding.

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

OK, I have a question for all of you lovely tattooed ladies (and gentlemen). I am probably going to go talk to an artist next week about doing my new tattoo (squee!). What exactly can/should I expect? I have one tattoo already, but when I got it, I just went into the studio with a very simple drawing that I did myself, and an hour later it was done. For the new one, i know basically what I want, but it's a much more complicated design and the idea needs some fine tuning and such, and I really, really want it to be just right. So... any suggestions?

Thanks. Smiley.

All of these tattoos are so beautiful and inspiring! I'm going to get inked the first time in October, with either the word "Pride" on my wrist in cursive or a tree, but I don't know where I'd want the tree.

My question to the tattoo veterans is: where does it hurt the least to get inked?

Hi All, I am new around here, but what a thread for me!

OK, I have a question for all of you lovely tattooed ladies (and gentlemen). I am probably going to go talk to an artist next week about doing my new tattoo (squee!). What exactly can/should I expect? I have one tattoo already, but when I got it, I just went into the studio with a very simple drawing that I did myself, and an hour later it was done. For the new one, i know basically what I want, but it's a much more complicated design and the idea needs some fine tuning and such, and I really, really want it to be just right. So... any suggestions?

First, if you don't already know the artist, take your ideas, pictures, drawings and really explain what you're thinking of and where you want it.  I also think that you should make sure that it is something that the artist wants to do, especially if it is a large piece and you are going to be spending lots of time with her/him.  (I am in process of having my whole back done, and it took the artist and I four tries (his sketches) to get it perfect - though it was also through this that I realized how VERY, VERY talented Josh is!!)

Second - or maybe this should be first  Wink - MAKE SURE that the tattooing area is CLEAN!  Most places are really nice now, but make sure that they are using throw-away needles and that there is an autoclave for the non-disposable pieces!

And my final - funny - note:  Since it is such a male dominated business, be prepared to be ignored.  I know that sounds mean or weird, but this is what I mean:  I sit for 4-6 hours at a time having work done WITHOUT my shirt on.  Not once have I ever been made to feel unclothed.  In fact, most people who come through while we are working - TOTALLY ignore me as a person and stare at my back where the work is being done.  Sometimes, the person looking will eventually realize that I can see them and they will say some off the cuff "Hi" or something.  I love it.  It always seems like a leveler to me.

Aloha, I can't wait to learn my way around better, so that I can post pics of my back!  Grin

All I can say, it hurts..  I know some people dont really feel it as pain or hurting, but my feeling/opinion is it hurts everywhere.

The only difference between tattooed and untattooed people is that tattooed people are way more cool and can kick some ass *gg*
