Let's just say I've always got a bottle of sunscreen in my purse

My next addition will definitely be something fish/betta related.
I gotta draw it up first!

I have... 4m/5f bettas, two cats, one dog, one rat, and a husband... ;]

Tattoo #2 - I finally found a picture of it! It took roughly 3 to 4 hours to do and HURT like a female dog. Guh! The artist kept having to take breaks to rest his eyes. Turns out I have less back fat/muscle than I thought I did. The end result was totally worth it, though!

lol, oh it happened!

Here's a (bad quality, sorry) shot of some of my roses, fresh out the chair.

Pardon the signature stamp, I'm the paranoid type

You gotta be with tattoo pictures... they're permanent and a lot of artists wont do something that's stamped. I really like those roses!! You can't find much for artists around here that would do roses that nice!

Thanks
I brought in my drawing and my tattooist put his spin on it by adding the webs.
I didn't think I'd be down for having spider webs on me for the rest of my life - but I love it!

A good artist is hard to find, for sure.

Thank you!! After that experience, I'm done with tattoos. For a while anyway. :P I really do want to get one more on my wrist, under my watch, that has Love in a flowing script.

One thing I wouldn't do is get a significant other's name on my body. Eeek! Too many horror stories to do that for myself!

Edit: I just realized that if you squint, you can see the bloody spots where I bled after the tattoo was done. I don't think I'm getting another back piece.

My husband got my name on him... lol... like big time.
His whole inner bicep. Crazy, right?

I'm a fan of tattoos that can be shown off and still easily concealed. I like your under-the-watch idea

I tatted my hubbys back... the bleeding wasn't bad at all.
It didn't involve any shading (coloring in) and that's what can shred the skin up. Oh the things we do to ourselves...

Alls I know is that I'm sticking to arm pieces. A tattoo is going to hurt regardless of where it is - but my foot/ankle tat was horrible... *shudders*... and I don't care to know which of my other locations hurt more lol

I actually know one guy who got a tattoo, ahem, down there. Of a hand. I'm not sure what he was thinking, but he said it was REALLY painful.
