It also didnt heal that great. I have to get it touched up.
Post your tattoo pics here!

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'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 (
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!!!

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.
