View Full Version : Tattoo appt tomorrow

19-11-2008, 04:40 PM
:unsure: Am nervous. I have my tattoo appointment tomorrow. Luckily, i have a great, fabulous friend who is going to drive up from Indiana and go with me. She's the best.

I am thinking about trying to get it on my left arm instead of my back. But either way will do. I want this (if my attachment worked okay), but with the guy having regular black wings.

Your very brave Billie. Tomorrow we want real pictures. Hope all goes well.

19-11-2008, 05:00 PM
Yes, my friend is going to be armed with the camera. :D

19-11-2008, 05:03 PM
Great. How big will it really be when it's finished.

19-11-2008, 05:05 PM
I'm not exactly sure. The real picture is about 4 inches. The artist said it was going to take about 2-2.5 hours.

19-11-2008, 05:12 PM
That is a very cool piece. Is it going to have color or be in black?

I personally don't like arm tattoos on women but that's just my opinion.

19-11-2008, 05:23 PM
Nice pic. :smile: Good luck. :thumbsup:

19-11-2008, 05:24 PM
Just black. :D

I was thinking that if it was on my arm I could see it a lot better than on my back. There are few places I would place a tattoo.

That's why I had mine on my arms. I like to see them. :D

You could definately see it on your arm. I always wonder about people who put tattoos on places you can't see without a mirror.....

Yes, exactly. One those things that make you hmmm?

I was talking to my aunt and she said that she new a lady who got a cat somewhere, but I wont mention where. But I think you can guess. Thank goodness this woman's husband was the artist. Either way...I don't think so.

19-11-2008, 05:40 PM
Oh my goodness.... :lol:

19-11-2008, 05:56 PM
I was trying to find some pixie dust to explain to the tattoo artist what I wanted. Well, I learned far more about Janet Jackson and her Mickey & Minnie tattoo than I ever wanted to know.

19-11-2008, 06:54 PM
This is definitely one of those things that this say goes well with: "to each their own."
My friend (the one going) keeps asking why I don't want a little bunny or heart. Something very girly. She freaked when I told her that I also liked the tattoos that look like something/someone is tearing your skin from the inside out.

19-11-2008, 07:55 PM
Good luck!! Take loads of photos!

19-11-2008, 08:01 PM
Yes, we plan to. Just in case I don't remember the occassion and have blacked out. :lol:

19-11-2008, 08:03 PM
LOL! 2.5 hours *is* a loooooooooooooooooong time :D

Better take a book and some snacks ;)

19-11-2008, 08:09 PM
The artist said it was going to take about 2-2.5 hours.

i wouldn't be able to sit still that long

19-11-2008, 08:18 PM
:lol: My friend is there to keep me company. I'm hoping that time flies.

21-11-2008, 01:31 PM
Well here it is.
It did hurt (a lot), but according to my friend she didn't even notice that I was in pain as she said she couldn't tell on my face. I am sooooo tough. I think it looks fantastic! It took a little over two hours.


21-11-2008, 01:33 PM
That's excellent!

21-11-2008, 01:50 PM
Oh gosh, that came out wicked cool! I like the wings on the male figure ever so much better in your tat than the photo. :yes:

Hope it doesn't hurt too much. I know it's not as easy for you to see, but I think you chose the perfect placement for it. :yes:

21-11-2008, 01:51 PM
That came out just amazing!!! You must be so happy with it!

You go girl!!!

21-11-2008, 01:56 PM
I can only see a red x

21-11-2008, 02:11 PM
Oh my goodness, Billie...it's stunning!

I think you chose the perfect spot!

21-11-2008, 02:19 PM
Thanks everyone! I just think it turned out so awesome. I soooo love it. :)

21-11-2008, 02:20 PM
That looks amazing! You must be so pleased with it. :yes:

21-11-2008, 02:30 PM
Most definitley pleased. I'm surprised how big it is.

21-11-2008, 02:37 PM
Wow that turned out great!

21-11-2008, 03:45 PM
Oh Billie that is AWESOME!!

21-11-2008, 07:48 PM
Just black. :D

I was thinking that if it was on my arm I could see it a lot better than on my back. There are few places I would place a tattoo.

:lol: I know what you mean..I've got that one on my lower back and I forget it's there!
I can't see the pic, but crossing my fingers everything goes good!
All I see is a red x...I'm hoping that's not your tattoo.

21-11-2008, 08:36 PM
That is gorgeous! I think it is the right spot too. You'll just have to get a hand mirror and gaze at it.

21-11-2008, 08:41 PM
That's brilliant! I want a tatoo :(

22-11-2008, 12:06 AM
I see it I see it! It's beautiful! But I know it's bigger than 2 x 2! :lol:
I know it hurt, but it's so pretty! Looks good on you Girl!

22-11-2008, 12:51 AM
I see it now!!! OMG That is Wicked COOL!!!!!

22-11-2008, 09:24 AM

22-11-2008, 09:27 AM
Wow....a lot bigger than I was expecting but it is amazing. Good choice Billie :hug1:

22-11-2008, 12:57 PM
Thank you. I truly am very happy with it. Who knows maybe I'll get another. :D

22-11-2008, 01:08 PM
Also, the picture itself is just so pretty and romantic. :)

22-11-2008, 01:11 PM
Billie that is awesome :thumbsup:

22-11-2008, 02:21 PM
Billie that is awesome and in a great place. You know what they say, You have one and you then want more.

22-11-2008, 02:30 PM

And excellent placement! :thumbsup: It would have lost all the detail if it was small enough to fit on your arm.

As much as I admire the artwork, I'll leave the tatoos to others, thank you. I didn't have the courage to have my ears pierced until I was 40! :eek: :lol:

22-11-2008, 02:37 PM
Are tats like cookies then? :D :D Good thing I'm not a big cookie lover. :D

22-11-2008, 03:27 PM
Thanks guys! The tattoo artist just did a fantastic job. He definitely deserved all those awards he's recieved.

22-11-2008, 06:13 PM
Wowww that is fantastic Billie wish i was younger i would get one like that:wavehands: i love it :wink:
Jacqui xxxx hope its not too painful :hug1:

22-11-2008, 06:51 PM
It don't hurt now. :D

22-11-2008, 06:54 PM
It is beautiful.

24-11-2008, 02:13 AM
Thanks Dawn.

I have definitely decided to get another. Oh geez, what I have gotten myself into?
