I was planning on getting lunch around 1 and I'll be getting my tattoo around 5:30. Should I get a snack before then?

I would eat a small snack maybe an hour before getting the tattoo. My tattoo took about 3 hours to do, and if I hadn't eaten a small snack beforehand, I would have been starving by the time I was finished. Plus, it also helps with any light headed-ness you might feel during the process. It most likely will hurt, after all.

Do you have an appointment or is it just a walk in sort of deal?

I love tatoos! I have 3. 1 on my left foot that starts on the side of my big toe and twists around along my foot about 4 inches. A butterfly on the top of my right foot. Then about 2 months ago I got a HUGE tatoo that goes up and down my right side. It is 2 ginormous butterflies with lots of color. The feet I don't remember hurting all that bad but the side was ridiculous! It went up my rib cage though. I am really pain tolerant and that was horrid! It was worth it though. My husband and I are going to get matching swallows at some point. He has at least 6 tatoos already. It's addictive like bettas! Yours doesn't look too large so it might go pretty quickly and the ankle doesn't seem like it would bad. Good luck!! :)

19 males all but 1 in 5 gal tanks
1 giant in a 16 bowfront
52 female sorority, 15 raspboras, 6 corydora sterbia and BN pleco in a 72 gallon

Other tanks - 135 gallon african cichlids, 48 breeder SA cichlid, 30 gallon hex goldfish, 30 gallon community fish and shrimp tank, 12 gallon hex growout

2 Chihuahuas, 2 1/2 lab 1/2 weim dogs and 2 cats
1 Husband and 1 3 year old princess

My grandma has an appointment at 4:30 and whenever hers is done I start.

Another question....with my design...can I bring them the design in black and white and then tell them where I want color? If you look at my design it should be pretty easy.

If they can't change the design to your specifications, they probably shouldn't be doing tattoos. ;) It shouldn't be any problem.

This is a picture of a girl's tatoo I took in Orlando at one of the parks. She told me she poses for tat magazines.. Pretty cool! I have always wanted one, but I'm a chicken! lol

Don't burst my bubbles!

I have 3 tattoo's so far and for me personally... I fell asleep when getting the one on my... Uhm... Chest area. It all depends where you get it as to the amount of pain you will feel.

Usually they do have a min amount for tattoo's and with color is always more expensive.
