My names Barb, Im 20 and I live in upstate NY. Just joined so I thought Id say hi and do the whole introduction thing.
I currently have 3 tattoos ( Matching Swallows on both sides of my upper back and a heart on the inside of my ankle with what I call my grandmother writen across it)  15 earings total and my nose peirced. I usually get some kind of peirceing or tattoo every year on my birthday and this year Im getting two new tattoos. I'll be 21 on June 20th so Im starting to really get excited now haha.
For this B-day Im getting a band of sheet music wrapped around my wrist and a Japanese cherry blossom branch (no sure where thats going yet)

(no need to include a pic of my nose ring because....well everyone obviously know what one of those looks like)

I hope this is alright to post here.

I'm getting a tattoo in a month or so and I've got four possible places I would like to put it. This poll is more so just to get an idea of where other's would think it would look best, it won't necessarily determine where I get it. I'm just saying that as a disclaimer because I've gotten a few comments of, "If you have to rely on where other people say you should get it, you aren't ready for a tattoo." I'll get it where I get it, I just like knowing other people's opinions.

The poll..

Pain? [18 Apr 2005|09:17am]

I want to get a latin phrase across my upper back, but my BF told me it's one of the most painful spots...but there's no where else I would put the tat! SO, my question is for those of you that have one there, so you can tell me if it hurt super bad, if it hurt more than other places if you have other tats, etc, whatever you can tell me.

lotus tattoo [26 Sep 2004|01:47pm]

Hi. I just joined cause this looks like a pretty cool community and you all seem to know what you're talking about!
Anyway, I'm 18, I'm a female, I have a few peircings but no tattoos (yet). I have pierced my navel, my ears(twice), and my traegus. (I dont know how to spell that.:)
What I really want is a tattoo of a lotus flower which I would modify with some words in Hindi. What I am looking for and can't seem to be able to find is just a simple line drawing of a lotus flower. I have done multiple searches for it and all I can find is very detailed, colored, usually real life photos of the flower itself.
If any of you have links to sites I could use or clips on your own computers, or if you have nothing better to do than to sketch one up for me (:)) I'd really really appreciate it.

question [05 Sep 2004|10:52pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I got my first tattoo exactly 10 days ago. It has been healing fine and has already went through the dry/itchy/scabby stage. The scabs have already fell off, and It seems to be almost done healing but I notice a sort of light film over it, pretty much like a layer of skin. Is this normal? Is there a layer of skin over the tattoo that will shed (kind of like the pealing skin from a sunburn almost). I thought this would be the case during the scabby time, not after. I could be (and im sure I am) wrong, so thats why I wanted to ask here!

Thanks so much in advance. I love my new tattoo so Im overly paranoid about it getting messed up!

I've gone and done it again [29 Aug 2004|08:18pm]

Today I was gonna go to the tattoo parlor to get some ink and a labret with a friend of mine, but she bailed, so I went up on my own.

Actually I was originally gonna get an etching. But I couldn't make up my mind as to what I wanted or where, so I decided to delve into my notebook of future ink. I decided on an evil clownCollapse ) on my elbow. It was very painful. Actually it was the worst tat I've gotten so far.

I also got my labret. The only problem is that I can't have one at work, so I bought one of these to wear. And after the piercing is sufficiently healed, I'll put in a stud or spike on my days off. J my piercer told me beforehand that he had a new method of doing labrets that was quick and relatively painless. By now you should all know me well enough to realize that with me there is no quick and painless. J's new way of doing things is to insert the end of the labret stud into the cup end of the needle, then use a special clamp, where the hole is just big enough for the needle and stud to pass through. Well even though I ordered a 14 gauge plug, the company sent me a 12. And since it's clear neither I nor J noticed until he put it against the end of the needle. So he had to use a 12 guage needle, but that wouldn't fit through his special labret clamp. So much for the new method. The piercing went fine, the jewelery went in fine, but he had a problem with the rubber O-ring, it looks like the sent me 14 guage O-rings. After a bit of fussing he did manage to get it on, but said to be careful and keep an eye on it, to make sure I don't lose the damn thing in my sleep or something.

Everything was fine until just now. I was taking a drink, and I felt the plug fall into my mouth. I checked the bathroom mirror, and there was blood on my chin, and the O-ring was on my shirt. Well actually 1/2 the O-ring was. Apparently Glassware Studios sent me 12 G plug, and 14 G O-rings, and it finally snapped. I looked at the other rings, and they were all the same size. So even if I could get the plug back in, the rings would just snap like the first one. I think I just set a world record for shortest period of time with a labret, 4 hours.

Design Request [27 Aug 2004|05:27am]

Hi, I just joined this community to request a tattoo design that's fairly simple to make. The design itself is a bit childish, so please no making fun!! I have online images that need to be modified for this design request, but I can't do them myself (I'm in no way artistic)

Remember, no making fun!Collapse )

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thanks VERY much in advance to the person that designs this for me!! If you would like to contact me for further details/questions, please don't hesitate. =)

I don't have enough body parts! [24 Aug 2004|10:12pm]

I'm supposed to be heading to the tattoo parlor on Sunday. But, I don't know what I'm getting done. Well I'm defiantly getting a labret. I had also planned on an etching. I've got two ideas for that. But now I'm leaning away from the etching and thinking more just getting ink. And I've got two ideas for that as well. I don't have enough body parts!

Question [18 Aug 2004|09:13pm]

I may have already asked this, but I figured I'll ask again.

I'm going for my first scarification. In fact it's tattoo gun scarrifictaion. Does anyone out there have any experience with it? What about about aftercare? What's the best way to get a good defined scar?

Please do me a favor [16 Aug 2004|10:50pm]

Stop asking If I get (blank) piercing, or if I get a tattoo on my (blank) will it hurt? Pain is relative. A mod that was excruciating for me, may be nothing for you, and vice versa depending on your sensitivity, any previous work or injury to the area, or the artist doing the work, and how he/she is doing it, etc. Basically it's not a question anyone can really answer.

[ mood | calm ]

Hi, there

My name is Tom, I'm 24 and live in Michigan. Currently I have 1 ear pierced and 1 tat of a sword with the word "truth" above it on my calf. I'll post a pic when I get a chance. As for my future plans I want to get at least 2 more tattoos. 2 dragons one on each upper arm. I want the dragons to depict good and evil, you know good on one side evil on the other. I do want to get more tattoos but those are the only ones I'm planning on at the moment.

I was actually kind of hopeing that someone here might know where I could get some good pics of either a good or evil dragon, I'm looking for more of a european style then chinese/japanese. Thanks in advanc

R.I.P nose stud [06 Aug 2004|08:20pm]

Yep...its gone

I had a major nose bleed last night that pushed my stud out of my nose, and by the time I recovered there was a scab. I'm pretty sure the nose bleed was somehow triggered by the fact that I kept having to pop the stud upwards due to the fact that it kept sinking down into my nose.

I'm not getting it redone. I'm sick of bleeding like I just got the shit knocked out of me. Sure, I loved having it...but its just not worth it.

I'm sticking to tattoos...less blood.
