    oohhh i want a stick and poke! i knew someone who does it really well but she moved to LA in Dec but i hope to get something next time she visits.

    Edit: also have a drink but don't get pissed drunk. the alcohol will thin out your blood and make the ink run more, so your tattoo will less likely stay and look crappy.

    Re: Tattoos! Who has them?

    I have a total of 10 tats. They're all on my upper body and only the 2 on my wrists are visible if I'm wearing a short sleeve shirt. I used to work in a more conservative corporate culture but I'm free of those chains now.

    Honestly, even if I wasn't immune suppressed I would probably never get a tattoo. To each his own. Obviously, I am not against them, Katie had her tattoo before we met. When she found out I was Jewish and things were going really well before we met, she was afraid to tell me she had one. In Judaism, you are not supposed to get one or you won't be buried. Sounds kind of superstitious to me, and I am sure G-D understands these things, but she knew about that (Katie is not Jewish). She sent me the picture above before our first meeting, and explained the meaning of it to me, kind of full disclosure before we met. I couldn't argue with the meaning and already loved and adored her, so I had nothing negative to say either way. It's part of Katie, and I love ALL of Katie, psychical, emotional, mental, etc.

    Anyway, the meaning:

    She got it after her divorce and the phoenix represents her rising from the ashes of her marriage, being born anew, and given another chance at life. The phoenix is rising out of a (blank) book for two reasons. First, she loves to read, and secondly, and most important, she knows (and wanted to be reminded) that she writes her own story in life. In a big way, it's up to her how that story will turn out.
    Just to clarify this here for you David (and anyone else that it under the same impression, a lot of people are), the thing about Jews with tattoos not being buried in a Jewish cemetery is a MYTH. It was a scary story grandmas used to tell their grandkids to keep them from getting inked and somehow it stuck. I've actually gone through rabbinical training and completed two programs which I guess technically certify me as a rabbi (LOL). Though I am no longer practicing orthodox Judaism, before my first tattoo I looked into it and turns out that when a lot of Jews got forcibly tattooed during the Holocaust the question came up about burial, and all of the primary Rabbis of the time were just like "Dude, that's not a real thing, of course they can be buried" lol.

    Anyways, sorry for the ramble. I have lots of ink (posted earlier in this thread) and plan on getting lots more!

    I appreciate the feedback. We had family killed in the Holocaust, which might explain why my family was so anti-tattoo.

    Still not going to get one because of the immune suppression, and, basic lack of desire, but I did pass on the knowledge to Katie.

    Really cool that it's not based in the religion, but rather the culture.

    Thank you Avsha531!

    Lol you're welcome. To be clear, not getting a tattoo is in the religion, says it straight out in the bible, but so is like a billion other things that no one follows. The bunk about the burial is all culture

    Re: Tattoos! Who has them?

    I have 4 tattoos A Celtic triangle on my right wrist, Mew from Pokemon on my left wrist, a tribal heart on my lower back and a tribal dragon on my mid-upper back. I'll try to get pics of them all tomorrow.

    Almost all of them didnt hurt that bad, only one that kinda hurt was my dragon, but only when the wings were being done since they barely touch where my shoulder blades are. Also the vibration made me a tad nauseous every now and then because I could feel it vibrating the back of my ribs xD

    I'm hoping to get another soon, its been 11 years since my last one! I want to start a snake sleeve on my right arm

    1. What tattoos do you have and where?
    2. How much did yours hurt?
    3. Do you want more?
    Lets see.... I have 12 tattoos at the moment. 1 on each calf, 1 on each upper arm, 1 on the right side of my belly, 1 on each shoulder blade (back), 1 on my left hand middle finger, 2 on my right forearm and 1 on my left forearm and 1 on my lower back.

    The ones that kinda hurt were the lower back and my left upper arm because it was a cover up and took 5 settings to complete. I am not sure if I am done yet! Been thinking about getting a tattoo to remember my sweet puppy that recently passed away... They are addicting that's for sure!
