    Am Thinking of Getting a Tattoo

    Have always wanted to get one. At the moment its either a celtic design or something like this:   Not very well rendered in that picture though. I'm sure I'll change my mind several more times yet!

    By May I should have my first tattoo.

    It's going to say: There's a fine line between love and hate. I'm currently working on drawing out the design and finding great tattoo artists.

    I got my first tattoo a few weeks

    after my 18th birthday, and the experience was amazing. It's all healed up now, and though it didn't turn out the color I wanted on the letters, I'm still happy with it.

    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.
