YAY! I found a pic! This isn't a great shot of it, and it was taken right after it was done....it's still kinda bloody. I've had it about six years now, I think. The colors are still pretty close to the pic though!


I want your promo stickers...your fave local band, your etsy shop, your zine, a sticker you picked off a bar wall, or even bumper stickers! I'm covering a table & need stickers! PM me!

this might be a dumb question, but what are some good places to get tats? something that can be covered up but won't stretch and also that i'm willing to show to people.

Depending on how you dress your calf is pretty hide-able but alsoo visible

Many women get pregnant from the bottom of their boobs out.  There are some fortunate women who get itty bitty bellies that don't really stretch much out, but I think that is relatively rare.  When chosing areas I would get tattooed, I had to consider where I gain weight.  It is a pretty individual thing, but I think you are relatively safe getting tats on your back (although avoid the sides), shoulder, calves, hands, feet, ankle and lower arm.  In my case, I tend to gain weight in my upper arms, and that is the only reason I haven't had a half sleeve done...I am scared of what will happen to it if I can't manage to keep my weight off

Of course, all of this said, you need to gain or lose a significant amount of weight in order to screw up a tattoo, and the BIGGEST factor is stretch marks.  Are you prone to them?  When you get them, do they eventually disappear?  Or are you as unfortunate as I, and you get them incredibly easily and then do something as ugly as a keloid??  Oh yes, that is another factor...do you keloid scar??  Ahhhh...so many things to think about  Grin Grin

on ribs stretching during pregnancy-- possible but highly unlikely.

i've always kinda thought about a tattoo on my thigh because it'd be easy to hide and seems like something different, or so i think, but i've always wondered if it'd hurt a ton. it's more fat than bone but a lot of muscle too. anyone know?

I'm not trying to be a pill or anything, but...tattoos hurt.  They just do, it's part of the process, but everyone's pain tolerance and perception is different.  My best friend just had a piece inked on her ribcage, and it wasn't half as bad as she thought it was going to be; another good friend who is tattooed over more than half of his body said that his ribcage was the only place that, halfway through, he started wondering, "Is this worth it?"  (it was, and he was able to finish.)  I read back a bit and I see that you've already been tattooed (or did I misunderstand?); if you can go through it once, you can do it again!  Smiley  Go for it!

...so believe when I say Im no better than you, except when I craft so I guess it aint true.

sassetteopants, you're right, they hurt no matter what, but you hear so many stories that fleshy/fatty areas hurt less than bony areas and since i've only had one tattoo, i've always wondered how right that was. is a fattier area easier? what about a muscular one?

plus, my tattoo was an exceptionally painful experience. 2 whole hours and no relief. i almost passed out halfway through, which i've heard isn't so uncommon, but nonetheless very unpleasant. now that i'm itching for another tattoo, i'm very curious as to how different places compare painwise. unless, my tattoo guy was just really heavy-handed.

i know i sound a little naive but i'm just curious as to other peoples experiences.

The tattoo I just got, over my spine on my back--the part over the spine hurt like hell, and the part over just regular back muscle wasn't bad at all. So I think bone hurts (which is what people say) and non bone doesn't hurt as much, regardless of wether it's muscle or fat (cause I don't think my back is very fatty. Smiley )

It also really does depend on the artist--you should find a shop where you're comfortable enough that you can ask for a less heavy-handed artist and where you feel OK asking your artist for breaks whenever you want. Mine (I heart Dave!) asked me every 5 minutes if I wanted a break, and even though I didn't take them, it made me feel better that he was checking.
