  • got my first Tattoo

    Here is my tattoo I got last Friday afternoon. This pic is right after removing the bandage.
    So I go in there at 4pm - she shaves the area, puts on
    the "decal" of the tattoo and we get all set to start.
    I'm thinking "this is cool!"
    Ummmmm.....nope!
    JESUS H. CHRIST! This hurts! 2-4 minutes into this and I am thinking
    "no way! this does NOT feel good" . " I've got 2 hours of this sh!t?"
    "Am I gonna be the only
    one who wimps out on their tattoo and runs out?" lol
    So then I say to myself: "Trav and Zach (my sons) did it, I can do this ...."
    yeah, right lol 5-10 minutes in ....I"m sweating like
    I just got out of the Amazon rain forest! I'm sweating profusely
    and she has to stop for about 7 minutes while I "recover".
    After resuming, It got much better. After 1/2 hour, my wife shows
    up and watches. No problem at all the last hour +.
    Still felt like bee stings .... but I think your body gets used to it
    - or numbs to it a bit.

    In hindsight, I love it! I'm probably too old for getting one (50's) ,
    but you know what - I love it!

    A friend said to me: "Hey, at least they can ID you now ......."
    I"m thinking "WTF?" - lol
    I'm thinking more: "Now if I lose an arm while hanging it our my car window, at least
    it can be ID'd and returned to me" lol
    -M

    PS> I found this gal on myspace - I loved her work! Told her I wanted to have
    the letters J,T,Z sort of "hidden" into a picture. I picked a dragon (Like em!)
    and she came up with this design - if you want something custom, try her out-
    she is great and really reasonable

      Nice tat. I like it when the tat means something.

        I have to tell you that in the chair next to me was a young (24 -25ish)
        man getting work done on his back. He had a "full sleeve" on
        his left arm - Told me it took over 26 hrs ! lol

        When I was done, the tattooist asked if I wanted some "flame'n" work
        done -lol I thought she was serious, but only wanted me to think
        about adding more later. Hmmm...... lol

            :thanks 1: for the nice comments.

            Hoping that others may post pics of theirs ..
            maybe we need an official Tattoo thread - lol

            My wife is pumped to get hers. Of course,
            she made me go first. (good thing she wasn't
            there the first 15 minutes -lol)
            -M

            PS > mine was only supposed to be 3-4" or so,
            but to keep the detail, it had to be larger.
            Kind of like buying speakers - lol

                          Just tell her it's not very big around, but it sure is short! Use inflection to sell it as a positive :)

                          No, didn't worked for me. :crying:

                            Cool tattoo, Fanmunski. The eye is a nice touch.

                            This is one of my tats. Is it small enough? :tiny: In the '80's, this was called a "party dot". :animal house:

                              I was never a fan of tats, but I like that it means something, that you got your boys in the design.

                              But who's 'J'?
