    I'm thinking of getting a tattoo - just some simple line art - and I was wondering who here has some?

    How many?
    What are they of and why?
    Which hurt the most?
    Do you regret any of them?

    I have an Eagle on my arm above the short sleeve line. I got it while in the Marines, NC. I want to get more but it's like a lot of things, never get around to it. Additionally, I have not found a place I like yet. Most people that do it around here are not really that good at it, they're scratchers. I am real picky about that whole business.

    Here is a link to consider. I would study it prior to getting it done.

    I have 5. Two I'm getting covered with new ones, two I had done a week and a half ago, and one is in memory of my brother done in 97.

    The owl is because I'm a wildlife photographer and have a special affinity for owls. The words, deeply personal and one I have wanted for about 5 years. Funny story, my boyfriend of 3 years recently cheated on me and I left him. People who don't know me well, seem to think the "never again" is because of him. Very few people (3 maybe) know what the tattoo really means.

    Sorry, guess I didn't answer all your questions.

    How many? 5
    What are they of and why? two hearts (getting covered), an angel, an owl and words
    Which hurt the most? Without a doubt, the owl. I asked everyone I saw with an arm tattoo for a year if it hurt. They lied. Near the wrist, hurts like hell.
    Do you regret any of them? Yes, but life is really too short for regrets so those will be just covered with something more meaningful.

    I don't have any. I have thought about it a lot but I guess I have commitment issues because I cannot decide on what artwork, I would like to have on my body forever.

    Good luck with your decision.

    LOL Yup, once then NEVER AGAIN! And thanks, I'm pretty darn happy with them. The artist drew the owl, I sent her a picture and said it was sort of what I wanted. She came up with something entirely different and absolutely perfect. She also picked the font for the letters.

    Tried to tell you that a guy getting a "tramp stamp" was a BAD idea.
