Smile I'm gonna do it!

For my 50th birthday at the end of the week, I am going to treat myself to a . . . .






Are you ready? . . . . .





Sure? . . . .




A TATTOO!

I know there are a lot of you tattoo fanatics out there, so please tell me what I should expect tomorrow afternoon. I'm getting the Pens logo with the #55 in the center on my left arm.

Please give me the skinny here - I'm a little nervous but kind of excited at the same time! Thanks in advance!

I have one on my right ribs and right back. Not sure what the arm feels like.

Pens huh? When I saw the thread title I knew it was a tattoo for some reason, but I was equally positive it would be something Steelers.

Good luck! Post pictures.

When I got mine, I brought Dante's Inferno to read. Can't get a whole lot of reading done so don't worry about a book!

IMO, make sure it is high enough on the arm that when you want or need to be respectable-looking, you can put something on that covers it up. Yet, low enough that you can show it off normally.

Personally, that is why I put one on my calf. When a situation calls for pants, its hidden. When it is relaxed enough for shorts, there it is for the world to see!

I'm going to get the Pens tat done first and have the Steelers tat done on my ankle in the spring!

Thanks for the advice, Father - I am going to have it done on my upper arm between the elbow and shoulder. My kids are kind of weirded out by it but as I've always told them - do what you wish with your own body.

I was counseling a lady the other day who is probably in her late 50's. She was asking me about getting a tattoo and the biblical passage about it. After talking with her and feeling out her reasons to get one, I finally said to her, "Stop being a wimp and just go get it done already"

She had a great laugh at that!

Oh, come on. If you're going to get a tattoo, do it right and get a butterfly on your lower back. Maybe a flower or a sun. Everyone will instantly want to get to know you because you're so individual and uniQue.

After that, go buy a MacBook and you'll be, like, as cool as it's possible to be.

Let's see if I am getting this right. You are counseling our great and wonderful mod known as "mom" to go and get a TRAMP STAMP?


(yes, I know. It was sarcasm)

I still can't believe you actually want one! I remember you always being against women having tats. But I'm sure it'll look really good on you once it's done!

I can't lend any advice as I have no tattoos and never desired to get one. Hope it isn't too painful!

Mine felt like a bee-sting for about 45 minutes.

HTG... Just remember NOT to wear anything with sleeves for about a week to two weeks after. When it scabs over, your sleeves may catch the scab and pull it from the healing skin... OUCH. It also (Least on my) discolors it just a bit. I have one little place on Taz where I can see the discoloration. No one else sees it, but I do.
