    It took for long hours

    but I didn't shed one tear. I felt the pain but i also kept laughing because of how ticklish I am. One minute I would say ouch that hurts and the next Im laughing an telling the tattoo guy to keep going.

    My First Tattoo Of Many...

    I vividly remember my first tattoo. I was 13 years old and my boyfriends older brother was a tattoo artist. It was the beginning of my "rebellious" years, that have never seemed to come to and end. So I looked through stacks of flash while sitting in a chair in the tattoo studio...

    I was 18 and begged my mom to let me get it

    for my birthday (I was going to get it anyway but it would make the aftermath easier to deal with - family hates tattoos and piercings), I got a Gemini sign on my back right shoulder. Absolutely love it and I'm getting a lot more.

    How Could I Forget?

    I was eighteen and had been waiting for the day forever. My older sister took me in to keep me company and make sure I didn't chicken out lol. I realized later that I was over charged but that's okay because I don't regret it to this day. With my nerves screaming at me to run...

    And Probably My Last!!!

    All my life I wanted a tattoo.  My Uncle Ray had a hula girl tat on his leg and he could make her dance.  Every time we went to the beach with my cousin I would beg Uncle Ray to make her dance (much to the chagrin of my mother) and he always laughed and made her hula for me...

    Easing Going

    My first tattoo was sort of on a whim. I had just read Alexander Pushkin's "Queen of Spades". I was over 18, so age didn't matter.  I was in a college world literature class. I had gone to the tattoo parlor previously for other body modifications, mostly piercings. At the...
