i'm going to make one on my right arm near the shoulder area

Just don't know what image to put. :hmm:

any ideas?

What's yours like? can i see?? :D

My other part saying i might get infection doing that. I'm very health conscious..

I've checked on a local store that provides this service, but i dun feel confident with them.

To my surprises tatto even has its heritage and kind of interesting to know.

:mrgreen:

It opposes to my knowledge that having tattoo is only meant for the bad guys

I've got two. My first one is of a scorpion which is on my right bicep. The second i got just before i left New Zealand in February which is of a Maori design and is placed on my upper left bicep and around the shoulder.

Don't go anywhere you feel uncomfortable and don't just get a tattoo for the sake of getting one. If you know what you want then excellent, but until then don't just get one on a whim because the chances are you'll regret it someday.

My first tattoo i got was back in September 2004 of the Scorpion. The main logic behind the tattoo was that my starsign is Scorpio. I initially decided i'd only get tattoos that would show my identity, but over time i've opened it up to represent periods of my life as well as identity.

My Scorpion tattoo will always be a part of my life because it represents what time of the year i was born. The Maori tattoo will always remind me of 3 fantastic weeks i had in New Zealand.

Think about it before you go and do something. It took just over 3 years between my two tattoos and let me assure you as soon as i got the first i wanted my second. I'd rather wait than have something done that i'd regret in the long run.

I have a half-sleeve on my right arm and a couple more on my right. Sorry, I don't have any pictures of them.. I guess I should take some.

As long as you go someplace reputable, and take care of the tattoo after you get it, you'll be fine. My only advice is to start small- it will take time to find the artist who is right for you. I found mine, and she's awesome.

I've got one, but I have been contemplating another lately. It is the kokopelli on my left bicept. I don't have an exact picture, but this is close enough. Mine has little white splotches here and there though because while it was healing I was being stupid and picking at the scab, so whatever you do, don't pick the scab or it will turn out messed up.

If you can picture that in plain black on the front of your left bicept, that is the tattoo I have.

My Maori tattoo has alot of fine lines on it, and towards the bottom of the tattoo where the line started to thin to the very point i managed to pick a couple of scabs off, so there are a couple of dots missing.

Overall though it looks good. Infact, after the first tattoo i was generally surprised at how little scabbing i got on the second. No matter what though it itches so much.

Can i also suggest to you GeorgeL that if you get a tattoo do it somewhere where there is muscle. I personally think the best place to do it is on the bicep mainly due to the fact that when you get a tattoo nearer the bone or thinner area of skin it begins to hurt more. The Maori tattoo was a bit painful when it got to the bone on the shoulder, but you've just got to accept it when it comes.

No way, that's cool.

Right now she's in a warehouse in downtown Phoenix that she shares with an artist. It's a cool atmosphere. She's trying to get into a place of her own now, but she's dealing with all kinds of zoning issues. It's amazing how resistant those old codgers who own all the land are to letting tattoo shops open on their properties.

Wow that's just a wrong tattoo.

I have a tattoo on my upper back of two ice axes crossed over one another about the size of a pack large post-it-note. Got it a few years ago after I summited Mt. McKinley and to show my love of the mountaineering.

No tattoos. They were not permitted as 'permanent and easily identifiable markings'.

I never bothered after that.

Here's a picture of my half-sleeve. It goes all the way around and was about 20 hours in the chair altogether. The longest go at one time was six hours.. :shock:

The hand in the front is my son's hand print when he was eight weeks old.

Just out of curiousity... cause I've strongly been considering getting a tattoo.

Question:
With growth, musular increase and decreasing. does it stretch ur tattoo and make it look distorted or how does that work?

Yes it does. With age and growth depending on where the tattoo is it can look different.

I mean it's on/in your skin, anywhere where your skin can stretch or change then your tattoo can as well.

Jameson, i like the tattoo although i've always been a bit funny about colourful tattoos like that. I see why people get tattoos with colour, but sometimes i think they can be pretty tacky.

That's not to say yours is bad, i like it. It's just kinda brave too in a way.

The only colours the tattoo artists i've dealt with have added on my tattoos is black and white. The white was quite handy for the fading just to emphasise certain bits too. Other than that i'm not sure if i'd ever go for a tattoo with colour.

Your sons handprint too is also a very nice and loving touch.

I know what you mean.. I had nothing but black and white ink for years and thought I'd never do color. A friend of mine has full sleeves on both arms with lots of color and I told him pretty much the same thing you told me. He said, just wait.. you'll end up getting color eventually if you keep getting work done. Sure enough, he was right and I'm glad I did :)

I'm considering getting something done on the inside of my wrist.

For anyone who doesn't just work from home for a living have you ever had issues getting jobs because of your tattoo? My family is worried about that one as is my partner.

Oh and I think I want some variation on a triskel in black.
