Were it truly so easy, I the wuss that I am would be all up in that. Alas I remain blank until I find the courage!
@Rhyzel , I want a tattoo but i'm not sure what of. I don't want to get something I'll regret in 40 years
@theshadosnipe, Find something with meaning to you. Or have something created to your specifications. That’s what I want to do when I find the courage, money, and figure out placement and size.
@theshadosnipe, garlic bread. Get a garlic bread tattoo
@Rhyzel , I just got my first tat last week after years of overthinking it and being afraid and it honestly wasn’t that bad! If it’s something you really want I say go for it, the worst is over sooner than you think and then you look rad as heck
@aminalFacks, well, @Rhyzel did say something that had meaning to me, so that does make perfect sense
@theshadosnipe, tattoos are tricky its really hard to figure out what you want forever. Meaningfulness has a high priority. I got my rib tatted at the age of 17 (with consent, im no jackalope) but i drew my own tattoo. I poured myself into my original sketch (dead tree with crows fluttering away, nuthn special) but it reminds me that no matter how much pain i go through im still "rooted" somewhere in life and that alone gave me the confidence to sit under a needle for multiple hours. You just gotta find yours and when you do itll be obvious i spent weeks online figuring out what meant alot to me and how i could express it in a picture and i havent had a single drop of regret since i had it done. Pain is only temporary is what the crows are supposed to represent. But since then if i were to ever get another tattoo (which will happen i have multiple drawings that i plan to make permanent) i prefer my own special unique style over a foreign style by another artist but thats just me.
@DoctahDonner, True. But I’m gonna have to wait for a little. I still haven’t figured out the size and location. The tattoo that I came up with is complicated, and I’ve heard that it sucks to get something like that as a first tattoo.
@DoctahDonner, you MUST tell us what it is!
@Wankershim, I got the Alliance Starbird (rebel emblem from Star Wars)!
@theshadosnipe, I say don’t overthink it. If you want a tattoo then do it, not everything has to have deep meaning. I’m pretty covered, just finished a massive back piece two days ago but my favorite is just a silly garden gnome that covers my calf. It’s just a fun piece.
@DoctahDonner, Neat, I just got my first 2 tattoos last week too. Been wanting them for a couple years, figured it was finally time. I'm glad I got them.
@Rhyzel , I have a low pain tolerance but I want a tattoo so badly!
@DoctahDonner, I approve. I’m 80% into a Star Wars sleeve. The original trilogy.
I’ve spent 36 hours under the needle so far.
I recommend tattoos to anybody but I always say take your time and pick something you’re passionate about and won’t regret.
@stercus stercus, that’s awesome! I’m considering turning this into a Star Wars sleeve as well so I applaud you
@DoctahDonner, i have 3 all in very different places. Those pain charts are pretty accurate. My first was my ankle which just was like "you are scratching me and its mildly irritating" and my second was on my side.... i eventually ran out of swear words (all in my head) so i started yelling food dishes and celebrity names in my head. But my tattoo artist said i did well (because to him i remained silent) . He said the last side tatto he did the woman flipped out and eventually told him to stop all together before it was finished. If someone really wants a tattoo but is bad with pain they should definitely consider where the best place for it is based on their pain tolerance.
Where was yours out of curiosity?
@PunnyBaker, so far my most painful tattoo was on the arm where the veins meet the hand it was a unique vibrating pain up my entire arm but if you want it bad enough youll endure it you know
@VirusX503, yup i know that feeling. Havent had a tattoo in that exact spot but i have one on my forearm that gets about 2 inches from there and ive also had mild carpel tunnel zaps in that spot. Its not a fun feeling but at least you got a tattoo out of it lol
@PunnyBaker, ive had 8 tattoos worse plays so far is the hand and anywhere near bone honestly its all mindset and money if you can zone out anyone can get a cool meaning or party tattoo
Oh no! Im rad now, but what about in 50 years?!!!
And here we see a djinn catching it’s prey through it’s venomous touch. Beware of their grasp
I could imagine there being a #tatwallet and I honestly think its be pretty cool
