I Am Getting My First Tattoo

For those thinking about or planning their first tattoo. 73 People

    Mine'll Be a Conversation Starter... Lol

    I've always wanted a dragon and I still do, but that'll be my second tattoo.  I want my first tattoo to say something about who I am, so I'm having the same pic I'm using for this profile done.  It's the planet earth with Darwin's fish walking along the top and Russell...

    I'm Going Today, Actually...

    4:30 this afternoon, I will be getting tattooed and I am TERRIFIED.  I'm excited about the tattoo - it's a music note inside of a heart in purples and blues - but I am so scared about the pain.  I detest needles.  But... I'm going, so we'll see what happens!  ...

    I Can't Wait!

    Being a little bit-(key phrase) of a nerd, it does get quite tiresome having to defend my decision to get a tattoo. It is also rather tiresome having to keep saying "No, I'm NOT getting an Apple logo, or a Facebook logo, or a PacMan or anything like that, you ****." It's going...

    ME Too

    I am also getting my first tattoo. But i'm afraid that the design I'm getting is going to be diffrent. Even though that's me. It's a skull with a bow instead of cross bones and hearts instead of eyes.
