    Well this should give you a rough guide on pain...
    Spoiler:

    Also visibility, perhaps you should go for an area that is easy to cover up, for your first tattoo.

    Having looked at the tattoo and it's meaning I'd suggest maybe you put it on your chest, like right in the middle.
    Not the least painful of places but it would suit the meaning.

    Couldn't do it there, right in the middle of my boobs, would hurt like a *****! Thanks for the guide though, that's super useful!

    When you decided to tattoo you? did you make a concrete decision where it has to be tattoed?*
    I'm leaning towards somewhere on my arm. :yep: Once I have firmly decided though I need to then find a place to get it done. If I was at home, I would go to who my daddy has went to for tattoos, but I am at uni.

    If I did, it would be over my back, should to one of my pecs.


    Would be so badass coming across as all straight lace only to tear off my shirt to be a total deviant.

    And so far away from home? is this a hindrance for you? if so, I would wait till you are at home again. As if the tattoo shop would go off. *

    Chest sounds so painful :eek:



    Oh, I am fricking terrified. I am fine with needles, it's just the thought of it. But I want something for myself, and I really like it.
    Aw theres no need to be terrified! Itll be ok!
    Ah right well, all i can say is, just try to think of positive thoughts and try to keep your mind occupied! Its easier said than done but it does help! (My therapist told me about it so its from a proffessional source).
    Yeah i can understand that!
    I say go for it still but just try your best not to worry yourself about it!

    I see. Some quarrels with your family or what is the reason that you hesitated to come back at home? I am sure that there is a tattoo shop in Dundee too.*

    Expensive to fly home so much, and home is boring after about 3 days. I might be working over the holidays too.

    You don't like tattoos, do you?
    Depends what they are and where they are.

    Not for me personally but I love the little red devil that my fantastic girlfriend has on her a**e. Discrete but sums up her 'wicked' soh and, errrrrrrr, let's go with zest for life.

    I really like your tattoo design I've had my design planned out for months but always chicken out when I go to book it so I have no real help to give you but just wanted to say good luck and hope it isn't too painful and let me know how it goes

    Your reassurance might finally give me the guts to get my tattoo done

    Yeah, now I need to get round to booking it (well, finding a place to get it done). But thanks so much, and I will definitely tell you how it goes :hugs:

    I would love a tattoo and I think your design looks really awesome! I think it would look good on your inner forearm - the thicker bit near your elbow.

    If it wasn;t for my spouse, I'd have got a tattoo a long time ago. As it is, I'm planning on having tattoo ink injected into my scars to make them the same color as the rest of my skin. But that's not very exciting. :sad:

    So so nice! On your forearm would look lovely. It's a good place to get a tattoo as well really because no matter how much your body changes over time, it's one of the least likely places where a tattoo would get distorted. I'm planning for a mandala on my foot but I just need to get it all booked!
