I wanted to get one of a small scorpio, the smallest there is, I mean TINY, but they said they couldn't do it, because it has to be a certain size and it was way too big for me.  :-\

That's what happened with my sister.  She saw this really cool abstract design of a roadrunner and wanted a smaller version.  The guys at the parlor said it couldn't be done - which I had a hard time believing having seen all the tattoo TV shows and magazines where intricate designs are done.

All I can think of is that those guys couldn't do it.  They weren't artists, they were tracers, basically technicians.  I told my sister to hold off - I was buying her her tat to celebrate and commemorate her post-divorce single life - and we'd find a really good expensive tattoo artist and she could even bring in her own design, but she didn't want to wait.  So she got the roadrunner in its big size.

       just over a year ago now, my grandsons best friend, was killed by a hit
and run driver, I know some of you have already heard this story, but bear with
me...he lived with my daughter and her kids for two years, so he felt like one
of the family.  He was from Hawaii, and when he died, all his brothers and all
his friends got tattoos in memoriam.  My grandaughter got one also.  I have never really approved of tattoos, but it was their choice, and if you are going to get one, I think that is the best reason I have heard yet.
     Her mom drew the picture, she took it to a very well know artist in the area
and had to wait for a couple of mos. for it, the woman is so booked.
It is a plumeria design, and i have to admit i think it is beautiful..

Smellykellyjay - interesting that your nephew noticed your tat first - I was baby sitting my nieces - and my middle niece noticed my tattoo  - she must have been 2 or 3 at the time. I swore the kids to secrecy - it a secret - lets see how long it takes your Mummy and Granny to notice (as I though they would go off their heads so I thought well when they do notice - I can say well it isn't that bad cos I've had it for x months!) and it was about 2 months before they noticed and only through a hint from my bigger niece who gave it away!!

Janice - i didn't know about your grandsons friend.  :'( Thats a lovely memorial.

That is a lovely tattoo and if one decided to get one, a memorial is a wonderful reason.

Too bad many many men - if they see a woman have a tattoo in that particular area - refer to them as "Tramp stamps".  >:(

I guess you can say I have another tattoo on my ass.  I sat on an ink pen when I was a kid, and it broke the skin, leaving a little blue dot.  Itís hardly noticeable.  It may have faded to nothing.  I donít know.  I donít look at that area too much. 


That happened to me too. I stepped on a ink pen when I was about 10 years old which broke my skin and left a black spot on my left foot. It has faded but I had it for quite some time.

here are photos of my tattoo! it's a bracelet that wraps around my right ankle. I love it! Eventually I'd like to get a small vine tattooed around my wrist. Click on photos to enlarge.
