i'm not afraid, needles dont faze me. its sanitation that i am picky about. i dont want to walk into the tattoo parlor healthy and then walk out with hepatitis b or something worse. i plan on getting a full back tattoo complete with lush greenery, colorful hibiscus flowers [cause they're my favorite], a waterfall, and some butterflies.......yah, i'm girly. no barbed wire or skulls for me.
