    I'm just curious how many here have tattoos....
    Where they are......
    What they are......

    Which was your first.....


    Last Friday (Sept 8th) I got, as my first tattoo, a lower back one.
    A jaguar resting on a branch.
    One forearm hanging straight down almost to the middle of my ass cheek....one small drop of blood tattood (sp?) under one of his claws.
    His tail drops down a little further on the other ass cheek.

    Greenery (leaves) around the cat for background color.

    I live a little over 3 hours from where I got it so I wanted it done in one session.
    4 hours and 15 minutes.
    Only the last 20 or 25 minutes were noticeably worse.....

    I'm adding a hot pink/coral flower to it shortly after it's healed.

    I don't have a tat but my my Marine son and Marine son-in-law have the obligatory USMC on their left biceps. My other son has a dragon on one forearm and a little red heart on his penis.

    One on the small of my back. "Succus Lunariae". It's an old alchemy term and has little meaning for anyone else but me. At least the police will be able to easily identify my body should the need arise.

    Life, spent actively in the outdoors, has given me a few tattoos. I didn't ask for any of them, though.

    I've got two. No one expects me to have them, but they were done to express myself.

    There was an annoying lady beating a tattoo on my door for what seemed like hours last night. So I finally got up and let her out of my bedroom.

    I have one on my left shoulder (see my avatar). It's the Pa Kua symbol from Taoism: the taiji surounded by the eight trigrams.

    Ed69,

    The wolf arrowhead is sweet!

    Tattoos can be enjoyable if they have a purpose. There is too many people who just get tattoos to be "cool", cough* Justin Timberlake *cough.

    Unless the tattoo has some sort of symbolic meaning in your life, I really don't see a point.

    I agree mine all have deep personal meaning for me.Thats why they are all one off designs.I waited till my 30's to start,I wanted them to mean something and it took some time to figure out what I'd be willing to die with.

    For my one tattoo, it is a chinese character that is a decriptive word refering to me. If I get another one, it will mean fire.:biggrin1:
