    Heidi, I don't believe I ever responded to your other post about the tattoo, or if I did I said nothing about the pain. Mine killed me, it was soooo painful. It took me just under 2 hours. I had to ask them to stop and get up and walk around for a minute twice. So, as much as I would love another tat, I will not do it for that reason. And that was like 10 years ago, I will never forget it. lol

    I think it looks amazing though and is totally worth the pain. I can't wait to see the finished product.

    It looks awesome heidi. I don't think i could stand the pain involving a nice tatti. I like them on other people but I don't think they are my thing.

    Does reggie have any tattoos??

      No, Reggie doesn't have any tattoos. I don't think I'll be getting another tattoo!

              HAHA!!! I know, that's what i keep saying, I either have 'o' or 'm'!!!

              Paula, he took your design with the om over the flower and it looked SO GREAT!!! Thanks so much for the design. Unfortunately, I really couldn't handle the pain for THAT long. Maybe someday I'll add the flower (I doubt it though! haha!)

              Saraha - I took this exerpt off of yogajournal.com:

              Om is a mantra, or vibration, that is traditionally chanted at the beginning and end of yoga sessions. It is said to be the sound of the universe. What does that mean?

              Somehow the ancient yogis knew what scientists today are telling us–that the entire universe is moving. Nothing is ever solid or still. Everything that exists pulsates, creating a rhythmic vibration that the ancient yogis acknowledged with the sound of Om. We may not always be aware of this sound in our daily lives, but we can hear it in the rustling of the autumn leaves, the waves on the shore, the inside of a seashell.

              Chanting Om allows us to recognize our experience as a reflection of how the whole universe moves–the setting sun, the rising moon, the ebb and flow of the tides, the beating of our hearts. As we chant Om, it takes us for a ride on this universal movement, through our breath, our awareness, and our physical energy, and we begin to sense a bigger connection that is both uplifting and soothing.

                That's awesome Heidi!! I have an existing tattoo I would like to have "modified" - that's so neat! So, are you going back for the rest of the om?

                Don't feel too bad - I think that low back/hip area is a tough one. My room mate in college & I got our tattoos at the same time --me on my ankle, she on her low back. She almost passed out & actually barfed while getting her tattoo!!
