My tattoo!

i'm going out tonite to look through a couple of artists' portfolios, but i think i've found the guy that i want to do my ink.
i'm also stopping at the beer store later to ask the one lady who works there where she got her ink.(and to pick up some beer....) she has some awesome tattoos.
i'll either be getting an indigo blue crucifix with Jesus on it, with the words, 'he died for our sins' underneath it in gothic letters, or else Japanese characters that stand for 'God's Grace' in jet black.
i can't wait.

Don't get drunk before you get it done.

I've heard that drinking makes the pain worse...

Well, alcohol thins your blood, thus you bleed more, and the tattoo scabs up more.

Too much scabing over can leave it scared.

Here's what you do:

Just below the area where you normally type your messages, there is a button that says "Manage Attachments" (by the way... you can't do this from 'Quick Reply'). Click that button. Another window will open with a number of buttons that say "Browse" on them. Click the top one. Another window will open (probably says 'choose file' at the top of it). Just under where it says 'choose file' there is a drop-down menu that says "Look in:" where you should be able to find a picture that is located somewhere on your computer. Once you find the picture file you want to attach, you can just double click on it and the file name will be entered onto the "Browse" line of the original window that opened for you. Then you click "upload" and wait a few seconds. You'll know when it is attached... then close the window.

NOW, when you look below the box you're typing in... you should see the file (picture)'s name above the "Manage Attachments" button. Just finish what you're typing and then hit the "Submit Reply" button.

I'm sure this sounds more complex than it really is (especially to someone who hasn't done it yet)... but give it a try. It's really easy and I'm sure you'll be posting pictures like a madwoman soon.

Very true! Plus before you get your ink, most places have you sign a paper saying you aren't under the influence of alcohol or anything else. That helps cover them in the future. Ya know, just in case you get drunk & wake up with a tattoo you don't remember getting, you can't sue them for giving it to you without your permission.

pds, i was going to get it on my lower back, but now i'm thinking of getting it on my belly under my peg tube. i'm just worried about it stretching out when i get pregnant. but a few of my friends have belly tattoos that shrunk to a relatively normal size after thier babies were born.
rainee, i know you can't drink before you get it done. i heard that years ago. i didn't drink before my piercings so that i wouldn't bleed. i still got dizzy when they pierced my tongue, though.

ah texas i'd have killed the idiot if he told me i couldn't get one. i'm a wolf fanatic. tats aren't that bad but then again it depends where you get them. the one on my leg hurt alot more than the one on my back. the one on my chest hurt the worst i think though.

Icy, they aren't that bad really. I have one on my right hip & I bairly felt a thing. As a matter of fact, I sat there singing Aerosmith songs with the lady who was doing it. The only thing that made me slightly uncomfortable was the fact that my back side was on display for some total strangers who decided to see what I was getting while they were waiting on someone.

Lucky for me it wasn't my entire butt, but I was still embarrassed about it. Hubby thought it was funny!

LOL I swore to myself after I got my ears pierced by a friend when I was in Navy. She used a piece of soap and a needle. I am such a wimp, AND proud of it.
