This is my first (& only for right now)... got it - wow! - 4 years ago as my 30th birthday pressie to myself. It's on my right ankle. And Khanada, to answer your question - it hurt like a bitch, all the way around!! You just got to want it bad enough to ignore the pain. (this took an hour & 1/2, by the way.)


This is my NEXT tat & my official U2 one. The colors will be filled in more than this image so that they're solid (instead of the faded, aged look) & I want to darken the "2" to a more charcoal grey or even black. Just can't figure out where to put the darn thing!!

yeah, the one on my right ankle took that long as well, cuz of all the detail. i remember my leg would jerk a little at times because of the pain, i guess. the guy was super cool about it so

The rose?

Is it just because you have to look at it all the time, the design, or a combination thereof?



I always thought it would be clever to get a wristwatch tattoo on one's wrist... but I'm sure the novelty would wear off and I'd cut off my hand or something. -_-

It's ugly and I dont like that its on my hand. But it was a cover up because when I was 16 I was an idiot and tatooed my bf's name on my hand
By myself.

No pics here, but I have a dragonfly on my right ankle. I really want another tattoo, but I can't decide what or where. I'm thinking something U2 on my lower back, just haven't decided on the perfect pic.

I'm not getting my tattoo(s) for at least 10 months, but do certain areas hurt more than others would when getting a tattoo there? (i.e. getting a tattoo on your back would hurt more than getting it on your arm or something).

That drives me insane just thinking about it. It would always be the same time!!

Any tat's going to hurt -- you're piercing your skin with needles, dude! - but from what I've been told, areas with more fat and/or muscle hurt less than those without. For example, your upper arm (bicep area) would hurt less than the center of your back. A tat on your tummy should hurt less than one on your ankle. Remember though, everybody's got their own pain thresholds & tolerances... what one can sit through without too much discomfort might make another pass out from the pain!

Like I said earlier, you just have to want the end result enough to deal with entire process.

Yes and no...It really can depend on your own personal pain tolerance. Tattoos don't hurt in the sense of getting a shot or something...it's like a constant dull scratching.

There are certain spots on the body that tend to be more sensitive, usually where there is less body fat and it's closer to the bone. But it really can be subective.

Neither of mine bothered me at all...they were kinda relaxing in a wierd way. Those with 'em most likely know what I mean.

Looks like Stars & I read the same "So You Want to Get a Tattoo" pamphlet.

I'm with stars on this one. I actually liked what it felt like. Sure, there were some moments when it got a little irritating (kinda feels like hot sandpaper rubbing constantly on your skin), but overall....it was almost relaxing! Makes no sense I know...

I'm sure you'll be fine DG. Mine didn't hurt NEARLY as bad as I was prepared for. Maybe you should go in thinking it's gonna be the worst pain of your life, and then you'll be pleasantly surprised

I wanna tell you guys a funny story. I got a few of my tattoos when I was 16. I had to hide them from MR BAW cause I asked if I could get one but he said not till your 18 and out of the house, hehe, so I got a couple anyway. I didnt even get carded at the shop. so its summertime and we had a jacuzzi, and It looks pretty funny when you are in it wearing a t shirt all the time. so one day MR BAW was looking for the universal remote control cause I took it into my room after they went to sleep ( cause I lost mine to my tv). and I sleep with no shirt on ever, and I was caught. the whole next day he was saying, check this out, and tapping his arms. I was like, what on earth are you doing. he kept tapping his arms all day at me till I finally went " oh crap". He had found out and I was busted. He didnt go to crazy about it, just cause it was like an episode of " america's dumbest criminals" so we actually got somewhat of a laugh out of it.
love ya MR BAW!
