That happened to me with my hibiscus on my foot. When the scabbing came off, the color came off my skin too, it was really weird. I had to wait until it was completely healed before getting it touched up. It hurts the second time - just a warning!

It also didnt heal that great. I have to get it touched up. sad.gif

Ive been putting it off for that reason. I just know its going to hurt! LOL

It must be only the foot that heals like that...it was weird. I was like this is just peeling off! I never experienced that before.

I wish I could find the inspiration pic that I used for my tattoo. I have a "tramp stamp" so will have to try to get a pic of it. I love it, but won't be getting anymore...

 

Jaime - I love the wedding band tattoo idea - but OUCH, I can only imagine it would be brutal!

We were going to do this. We got tattoos for our anniversary. And wanted bands. After talking to a few tattoo artists we decided against it. B/c it such a small space they said that it starts to blur as you age and becomes unreadable or "smeary". I don't know if this is always true but we didn't want to risk it so instead did the coordinates on our back. The other reason is b/c my dh works with his hands didn't want the tattoo so visible and have to explain it all day. I still think it would be cool if it didn't disform over time. Let me know if you do it I'd love to see it.

okay, i have waited long enough to post this! i have LOVED seeing everyone's pictures so far!

 

i'll go in chronological order so you can see the ridiculous progression i've gone through..

 

this is my first tattoo i got done when i was 17. i copied it from the lucky brand logo and i'd say it's probably the size of a nickel on my lower back. it looks faded, but it's actually still in great shape, my camera just didn't want to take a good picture of it!

next came the infinity symbol. i LOVE this symbol (i wear my tiffany infinity necklace every day proudly!) and what it represents and since i'm a runner i figured my foot was an appropriate place for it! it took a whopping 10 minutes and hasn't faded at all even though i was told that socks are like erasers for foot tattoos.

my next tattoo is actually my avatar.. my cupcake and crossbones. FI designed it and his friend put it on my left hip. FI actually drew it on a napkin when we were out at dinner. i was wearing a johnny cupcakes shirt (Johnny Cupcakes - Johnny Cupcakes) and he was inspired!

 

getting a little bigger, this is my celtic knot! i found the design i wanted and it ended up being my first (and only so far) tattoo from him! i think it pained him to do something other than his normal japanese style, but i begged, so he gave in!

my most recent tattoo is big one! it was my birthday present this year and done by the artist that does most of FI's. it was done to match his sleeve so we could have coordinating tattoos, but not match exactly. outline took 3 hours, color took 8 and i thought it was going to die. thanks to a 2 liter of coke and a few clif bars i managed to make it through and i LOVE it! the only thing that stinks... having to find BD pic outfits that go with it!!!

We're planning on having ring tattoo's done once we arrive back at home. FI works as an electrician, so he won't be wearing his ring all day which drives me crazy, but I never told him this. It was actualy HIS idea though, despite what people will probably think. We girls get the bad wrap on everything.

I'll post later, but he has a tribal on his arm, a skull/grim reaper type design on his shoulder, and strenght and courage chinese symbols(you can prob. see on our profile pic)on his neck. I have a large tribal design on my lower back that I drew out while in college. I'm getting one on my footthat I designed and one on my ankle (our monogram)in a few weeks, so it can heal before the wedding.

I heard the same thing too, that a lot of artists don't like to do ring tats. cause they fade quick and need to be touched up frequently. We will probably think of our own design; simple and black. We are actually searching for ideas right now. I have an artist friend that says he will do it, no problems. We will just have to keep up on the retouches I guess.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
