    Hmm, as to pain - I agree with what everybody said, if they think you've been drinking they'll say no way (if they're a good place). I've heard what Princess said, too - the nearer the bone, the more it hurts. I guess I was just lucky!

    eh so you want a tatto eh? Well, the first thing you need to do is find someone you like as an artist. My advice is to wait until a convention comes to town or even close enough for you to make a small journey. If you can't then visit any local shops around and just get a feel for the places. See how clean it is and they should have someone recieving people. Look at flash and also the work someone has done. Also talk to them. Don't be afraid to ask for ideas either. Even if you aren't artistci, find pics or even try and draw something out, or even trace it out. Give it a try, because it is always gonna be with you, unless you got a sugar daddy or somem willing to get it lasered off you. BTW, the old saying is that if you don't have at least one bad tattoo, then you don't have one at worries, just pick something that will suit you. Much unlike some beliefs for some people we know, we can change them in the future.

    lol...when I got divorced, it was either a tattoo or a navel piercing...

    Well, I got the navel pain...healed great...

    Then I married NOdenial and mentioned I wanted a lower back tattoo..........haven't seen the right one yet...thinking of a kewl dragonfly...(I love dragonflys).

    Just be sure to get a very good tattoo artist....You are gonna wear this for life...make sure your tattoo artist is a REAL artist at his/her work!!!

    Maybe one day I will get primed up for the tattoo....if I can get the right artwork and be able to handle the pain.

    A Pearl Jam Yield Sign with the words "Given to Fly" A song from the album. The song talks of re-birth and the album meaning "Yielding to the rest of the world as it goes on about life"

    I got one about a year and a half ago.....above my right stung quite a bit now and then, but nothing that was not is a tribal tatoo of a raven's head, done all in black ink......its very intricate......sort of like Celtic knotwork........I am part native american and my last name is of my totems is the raven.

    I don't have one, yet, but am also thinking of getting one on my lower (right side) back. I'm still deciding on what to get.
