    Ok so there was a couple of tattoo threads around yesterday, got me thinking.

    Has the panther grown throughout those years? :whistling::w00t:

    I'm undecided about tattoos, sometimes I think they're not all that but other times, I strongly consider getting one, although I wonder if it'll be something I regret when I'm older and wonder if it'll look rubbish in the future...and also if I put on weight and it stretches into something else. lol

    very sensible thinking!! I regret my first one, not having it done, but the actual design, it is very small, and not what I would choose now!

    i have put on lots of weight since i got both off mine and they dont look any different and i sometimes wrinkle my skin to see what they will look like when i am older lol

    Ultimate mistake - was he your first boyfriend?

    I've waited until my mid-twenties and now I'm getting an artist friend to design one for me from a rough idea I've had for a while.

    Waiting until I go to LA and getting a couple done by the guys who do John Mayer's and Beckham's.

    Bet that is costing a bit, it's generally double the price or more in the US, and you are supposed to tip the artist in America

    lol, don't you know that a tattoo is for life and marriages aren't?
    I just hope you two don't go your seperate ways...it might be a little off putting when your future partners ask who they're eating. :w00t:

    I've always worried that it'd be messed up and I'd end up hating it so I'm trying to do everything I can to make sure it goes smoothly.

    I'm actually looking forward to it - I've got a thing for pain. Worried I might get addicted actually:oops:

    A friend of a friend's nickname is grandad and he acctually got "Grandad" tattooed across the top of his back.

    I've seen it, it's not just a rumour. I bet he's gonna regret that one. He was about 23 at the time.

    My first tattoo was aged 18 and of the hottest band in the world - KISS

    It is addictive, and the pain thing :thumbsup:

    It's good when you have a large piece coz endorphins & adrenalin kick in!!

    I would not say it is real pain though, just a bit uncomfortable, and more coz you sit there for soooo long, numb bottom is the worst bit!

    I was into egyptology and I was 15 nuff said lol!

    going to the london tattoo convention in sept. might get my first tatts there - the OH has big pieces done the last few years ...

    Surely there are better less permanent ways of making yourself look like a cheap ***** than having a tattoo?

    Generally have to book i advance fo conventions, and most artists take their own models/subjects, but could be wrong as the biggest one I been to was Manchester

    i got my first one when i was 16, it's a dolphin on my ankle.

    i had my mum's permission although a few years ago she did ask me when they put the age up to 18 lol
