    Ohmigosh! That was so freaking painful...

    OK, that totally SUCKED. I'm officially a complete wuss with a verrrrry low tolerance for pain. I backed out of the lotus flower & just went with the om. The artist had drawn up a beautiful design with the flower. I decided after he finished the om outline that I couldn't do both (it would've taken 2 and a half hours). So he 'erased' the flower part of the tattoo on my body and continued on with the om. I almost passed out twice (really, he used some smelling salts they use in boxing to revive people on me, twice). I seriously suck! So when he finished (after an hour) I didn't even really look at it, he just bandaged me up and on to the bar I went.

    WELL.... he missed 2 parts of the om since they were intertwined with the flower that he erased, so he had erased those parts...

    Here's my current tattoo (to be finished in 2 weeks):

    Now that the pain is over, I LOVE the tattoo! And I"m glad I didn't do the flower; I like just the om! I just want it to be a complete om!!! hehe! Honestly, I don't blame the tattoo artist - I backed out at the last possible minute for the flower (because as I said, WUSS!!!!!). Anyway...just wanted to fill ya in on the tattooing!

    (whoever tells you it doesn't hurt is LYING!!!!)

      Wouldn't it be nice if they could give some nitro to customers so they at least don't *care* about the pain as much during the experience?!? :)

      The tat looks good Heidi!

        It looks nice! Sorry it hurt you more than expected. That is a really tender area too so that explains why it was bad.

              Heidi it looks great, but the pain is so the reason I have never gotten one.

                It's cute Heidi! How long did that tattoo take? I just got back from Vegas, and my FI and were supposed to get tattoos but we didn't end up getting them. Chickens! He doesn't have any and I have 1, a small rose on my ankle that I got when I was 17. It hurt like hell and only took about 10 minutes. I almost passed out once and that was before they even started!

                  It took a little over an hour. I love it...but I don't love that I have to go back once it heals to get it done again! At least it's just a little part!

                    I think it looks really nice. More than the pain I'm worried about getting something I don't like later. I change my mind like my panties...lol When I get it together I will share too :o)
