    I just got my first tattoo on Tuesday and I think I am hooked. I got my last name on my upper right arm so it can be covered by a t-shirt if needed. It was only $20, its about 1/2" tall by 3" long. It took about 5 minutes from start to finish and it didnt hurt much. I was expecting pain but it felt like a thorn scratch at first and a little burn afterwards. I was also expecting my muscle to hurt afterwards but it didnt.
    I am already planning my next one, I want a rooster. I was thinking like a 1950's style cartoon looking one at first but now I am thinking something more like a cool looking game or jungle fowl. I want one with a single comb, BBR coloring, and an upright tail. It has to be no bigger than 2x2 so I can get it for $20. So now I am trying to find a good picture for one.

    What does everyone else have? Any cool chicken tattoos?

    Here is a link to the pics on my facebook. http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/album.php?aid=133417&id=745305394&ref=nf

    During the summer in Indiana or the winters if we're in Florida, I shave my head bald as a billiard ball. I first shaved head after two consecutive haircuts, one bad one one day and a helpless one the second day that couldn't correct the previous day's disaster. I looked at my handsome countenance in the mirror and decided that a tatoo of a honeybee top and front of my right ear would look neat, and it does.

    Don't choose the size of the tattoo because of cost. It will be there forever. If, in your heart, you would be happy with a bigger one, save up a little and get the bigger one. www.tattoojohnny.com has some good ones on it.

    i totally agree. id never go just by the size and say i only want to pay a set amount. id never make my sea horses smaller or my fairy or any other one. i love them all. and when you do smaller you don't get a great quality of detail. [​IMG] eventually want to get wings on my back.. but price is holding me back;)
