This cannot be stated effectively enough. I've been to a couple tattoo parties, I know a couple "underground" guys who could do work for me if I wanted them to, and that shit is not legit. I know a guy who got an infection from a tattoo party he went to and got a small piece done at. It looked so nasty and made me very thankful I went with a legit artist at a legit place. As far as my piece goes, I presented the idea to 3 artists, had 3 similar renditions drawn up, and chose the one I thought was best. My artist doesn't even have a picture of my tattoo, I actually meant to send one to him after the third session healed and everything but I forgot and I think it's for the better, because now nobody will be able to do something similar off my design.

My friend got the Salvation Army logo on her arm when she was younger (she's a Salvationist) and she absolutely hates it. It looks like a prison tattoo, the lines are uneven in some places, (some too thin, some too thick) although you really can't tell the poor quality of it until you look at it up close. But she got it right on her upper arm meaning when we go out to the club or the bar she has to wear shirts with sleeves or else she gets self conscious because she's got a church logo on her arm and feels like she has a standard to uphold.

Oy.

She uses a balm of some sort to try to lighten it up but its so big nothing's gonna fix that except getting it removed.

Re: Tattoo's

I was going to say, you can see the gold trim in that newer picture even more. It's a nice job man.

Re: Tattoo's

I'm kinda worried about the pain involved. I'm such a wimp.

That all depends on where you get it. Using the logic from mine (where they spent about 4 hours working on the top of my shoulder blade) I would assume anywhere they do it where you have no flesh and it's all bone underneath, well that will definitely suck. Biceps is pretty easy though, because you have a lot of flesh that absorbs the pain, if you will. I've talked to enough people to know that getting one done on your ribcage definitely hurts too. That's all I can think of right now. My bro has a couple, one on his left chest, and one on his upper right back area (both pretty small) and he says the one on his chest hurt.

I think it really depends on the number of nerve endings in a given area vs. just being close to bone. Bone in itself has no nerves. For example a really flesh part of your body that hurts like hell if you pinch it is the flesh on the back of your arm near your triceps.

/I'm not a doctor, but I did stay at a motel 6 once.

Seriously though I'm not a doc by any stretch, so this is all based on ideas and opinions, not facts. Alls I know is it hurt like hell when that needle was digging into what felt like the bone at the top of my shoulder. The rest is just opinions. I'm sure with every person it's different, based on a lot of different factors.
