My new tattoo

Just a fast post to show my new ink.
Lower back, HURT LIKE HELL!
The arm is MUCH less painful.

All smiles, before the needle.

Hurts so much.


Thank Goddess, the pain is over.

    Very pretty, but NUH-UH, No. Freakin'. Way. I don't even have pierced ears!

  2. Kris // 9:54 a.m.  

    Very pretty. My Hubby got one and said that I would not survive so I have not gotten one. I have a very low pain tolerance.

  3. Isabel // 12:26 p.m.  

    That is really pretty! I like it!

  4. Anne // 1:00 p.m.  

    I've got two, and yeah they hurt. :-) Yours looks awesome! Very cool! I applaud your bravery.

  5. Dev // 10:34 p.m.  

    I like it! I'm thinking of getting one, but I'm a baby. No pain tolerance whatsoever. We'll see though.

    Oooh, it's so pretty! I really want to get one - just a little one on the back of my shoulder.

    Very sexy.

    Ouch... but then, it sure looks pretty!! :D

    does it still hurt?

    Hi Nat,
    It's pretty, isn't it? The tattoo artist, Jay, was really nice. I just said to him that I wanted something on my lower back, and it has to be pretty and girly. He tottaly gave me pretty and girly :)
    Hey, where have you been? You are never home when I call.

    Hi Bev,
    Pretty indeed :)

    Hi Kris,
    My pain tolerance is rather low as well. I kept moaning and making horrible faces, lol
    Actually, it was just the butterfly that was hard to handle (Right on the spine-ouch!) The rest of it was a dull pain. I knew it was happening, but I could talk through it.

    Hi Izzy,
    Thanks. Me too!

    Hi Anne,
    Two for me, too :)

    Hi Dev,
    Do it! If I can do it, and I am such a wimp, then you can do it.
    Seriously, during my last home birth I was screaming so loud that the people next door came over to see what all the fuss was about.
    If I can get a tat, then anyone can.

    Hi Lori,
    My next one is going on that spot :)

    Hi Anon,

    Hi Nath,
    Nah, it doesn't hurt now. As soon as the needle lifts away from the skin, the pain is gone.

    Very pretty and girly. The tattoo guy did a wonderful job! You are very brave. I would not be able to hold out. I think as soon as the needle fired up I would be out the door!

    LOL, when I read the replies, I thought the first one was for me... and I was like you tried to call me?!?!? LOL :)

    You're good Chantal! So courageous :)

    I've been wanting to get one for awhile now, but 2 things are stopping me: I need to find the right design, and the pain. Hate pain. Not a fun time. But your tattoo is gorgeous. Love it.

  13. Holly // 11:56 p.m.  

    Love it! I'm so jealous. Every time I try to get a tat I end up pregnant, so I've resigned myself to just not getting one. :P

    It's beautiful, though.
