    I'll tell u from experience I got mine in January and my artist told me the anticipation is far worse then the pain. needless to say my first thought as I braced my self for the needle was 'yeah right' but when he started I kept waiting for agonizing pain. truth is it wasn't...

    I just need to decide what I want

    and where I want it which I am having a difficult time doing. I think it would be cool to have a sleeve tattoo but I don't want my tattoo to affect my chances of getting hired later on.

    I always wanted a tattoo.

    I would like it to be on the thigh because it has a lot of fat so it wouldn't hurt as much. My friend recently got a cool design on his ribs and he said it was painful XD

    I've wanted to get a tattoo

    for a few years now. I have the design picked out, but every time I save up the money, something else comes up, like car troubles.

    I grew up with the idea

    that your body is pure and you shouldn't mark it. Since I was raised christian tattoos were generally considered sort of taboo with my friends and family growing up. I'd rather not get something that stands for a person in particular but something I generally believe in. In my...

    I really want a tattoo.

    . I want it basically between the middle of my front but closer to my right hip. I'd love a heart of something like that. I'm really worried that after I have children it will look really weird and stretched though... Anyone with experiences in tattoos stretching on the stomach...

    I want multiple tattoos on my back,

    arms, legs, and maybe even my neck when I'm old enough. I'm thinking about having wings on my back, some quotes on my arms, a snake curling around my ankle, and something small and meaningful on the back of my neck. The pictures I have are only examples, I'm not sure if I really...

    Tattoo's are just about the coolest

    and prettiest thing you can do to your body. My mom and dad both have tattoos (a dragon and Celtic cross respectively), and it just makes me want one so effing bad. I'd think I'd like a dragon like my mom.

    I want a dragon on the back of my right

    shoulder, with a slim, spiraling tribal designs trailing down to my waist... And then on my left side, the same type of design tracing across my ribs, to my side, down to my waist, to meet with a scrolling, flowery hip piece... I've been in love with these ideas for a long time...

    I want a cute and feminine one maybe on my

    shoulder, I dislike it when girls have too many tattoos on their bodies... just my opinion. The cute and small ones suit girls more :) Maybe someday I'll be able to save enough money to get one from a clean and good quality tattoo artist

    I want this tattoo, exactly like it is

    and where it is. Its itty bitty and really unnoticeable I think, I don't really think anyone would notice unless I pointed it out. My parents are saying no but I have a friend's daddy who will do it, I want to get it done anyways. I'm pretty sure he's a licensed tattoo artist...

    I think I am getting tattoo fever.

    ..I already have a few but it's been over a year since my last one. Some girls do "retail therapy". I think I am in need of some "ink therapy"😄

    I'm Going To Get It When I Can Afford It.

    I already have a few, but there's a few more that I want. One is a snake going up my spine. In a lot of Pagan traditions, snakes represent the goddess, rebirth, and ridding the old for the better new. Below is an example, pretty close to what I want.
