Easy peasy lemon squeezy, as my daughter says. I love it -- cant wait for my next one. Now that i know what to expect (the pain is FAR less than you think), i am excited!!! I am only going to ink my left arm. My right arm will remain untouched. I plan on all my future tats having meaning as well.... you will never regret putting something on your body that means something to you. At least i dont think. I waited 38 years for my first.... do it while you can do it. Live life with no regrets!
thanks for your kind words.
cool, I kinda figured that, i always envisioned it as getting shot with a shotgun at close range then i dunno kicked rapidity in the wound. It will be my first as well, I will post it when i get it on thursday. just remember to keep yours clean!
Cheers man. i'm am doing what your doing, but on my right, and mostly above the t-shirt line.
