New Tattoo by Mate-of-Bardock New Tattoo by Mate-of-Bardock
Okay so This was my brother, :iconpaladinofthesun:'s gift to me for my 21st birthday. It is a claddagh. The design was of course the artist's I trusted his taste. He picked the colors too. I thought it came out amazingly. I did request that the little space under the heart be left blank, I will one day have my brothers name put there ... one day hopefully not soon.
Anyway I love how it came out and I'm so excited about it. I have also been told the colors look amazing on my pale skin (ivory XD) It's so pretty. I adore it. I have to say it was the greatest birthday present I ever got.

The truth behind it: I wanted a claddagh tattoo but I know the rule. It has to be a gift. I asked my brother for it though for a reason. While my first tattoo had some meaning to me in that it felt like a link to my heritage, (((it's a Celtic knot))) I love the claddagh design and the meaning of love and friendship behind it. My brother is like my best friend and I love him to bits and pieces. I asked him to give it to me because I know in all likelihood barring any freak accidents, I will outlive him. And That thought scares me. The point is that With this I always have part of him with me no matter what. That means a lot to me.

This was taken by Corin Grendon, who is my tattoo artist (and an amazing one at that.) Sometime I will upload a pic of my first one that he did. He is awesome, and anyone who lives in PA and is looking for a good tattoo artist should note me.

I would also like to thank Corin for talking to me and helping me understand being a parent just a little better ^^


:star:I'm going to put a watermark on it, but only for his protection on his design. I do not claim the design as mine, it belongs totally to Corin Grendon :star:

Apparently, how much it hurts depends on how close to the bone it is. And of course, ones own tolerance to pain. My sister pinched my arm with her nails, and told me it felt like that, over and over again for the whole process. She said it wasn't particularly painful. Your mileage may vary, though.

It's my first time so I'm sorta scared at how painful it is ^^; I've got piercings and some people say it's sorta like the same pain, but just repetitive.

my bro is right. It mostly depends. But overall no. Just a constant pinching. You become almost oblivious to it after a while. Though if you are really nervous I recommend talking to the artist about where they recomend getting it. I know my neck hurt a little more than my shoulder blade for instance. Note me about it and we can talk more.

Of course everyone handles pain differently so it is hard to say for sure. But I am going to get more so not that much XD

That sounds reasonable...but where there's more bone? So is it reccomended to or to not to get a tattoo on the hip? Dx And I was thinking of the design to be more like this:[link]

Just small and simple, just take out the graphic factory mark ^^;
