A rose for your thoughts. by Absolute-Sero A rose for your thoughts. by Absolute-Sero
This is what I have been up to the past few weeks, and at least is a small part of why I have been lacking in the art area.. ;]

That's a real tattoo thar, done barely a day ago (am I ever bruised!).. the design being my own. Worked on it the past number of weeks. Unfortunately because I didn't want my tattoo designs being copied I couldn't submit/preview it (and it turned out quite differently than the plans).. but here it is, the largely finished product. It was actually really exhilarating to design a tattoo.. I'm looking forward to when I decide to get my next.
I need to go back for touch-ups.. the neck, as I found out and was told, is a tough, painful spot to get tattooed. xD My hair keeps getting caught in it.. eyagh. (For those who don't know my hair's LONG.. so I have it pulled up here. Looool.)

"Quid pro quo" is a Latin phrase akin to 'something for something' or 'tit for tat'.. give and take and whatnot. It's a statement meaningful to me in short. ♥

It's okay.. I have 200 pictures piled up in my inbox. I miss a lot. :[
Thanks.. I thought it was really simple though, when I saw all the designs in the store and how intricate they were.. ^^;

Whoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooa....
Pretty tattoo! (my mum would never let me get one, and even if I could get one I would never be able to decide what and where... -_-';)

Yeah.. you need to get something you won't get tired of in a couple months. I was like you but the rose is.. symbolic for me, and the words were meaningful.
And yeah by the time you no longer need parental permissions (errr I think? since I don't know laws around your area for legal ages and whatnot) you might know if you still feel you want to get one. ^^ I know I considered it off and on (that or another ear piercing) more than once years ago, and I didn't need permission now.
And depending on where you're going in terms of career, as I thought of and was asked by my tattoo artist, make sure it's not going to impact anyone in an interview. xD; I'm lucky I'm headed for a lab tech job so I have less to worry about than some.

I think my mom's pretty laid-back.. she'd have let me get one years ago if I paid for it myself and after a warning or two. xD She's the type to let consequences speak for themselves.. whether that's a bad or good thing I'm never sure.

My mum's not that strict either, but that's why I respect her will in this case ^^
Hmm, the careers I'm considering would probably not be jeopardized by a tattoo (artist/writer/editor/something like that). And no, I'm not legal yet, so.. :)

Tattoos, yikes! They're suppose to hurt like hell, right??? :fear: Pretty eye-catching though.

Out of curiousity, why the neck? Especially since you've got long hair which might just cover it up. ^^;

Oh yes, they hurt - more or less depends on where you get them though.. I doubt some body spots are so bad. The neck is uh.. actually one of the top most painful spots too, I found out after. ^^;
Know what you want in a tattoo, that I will say, especially if it's getting done in a sensitive area. xD

Well being able to cover it up - even part - is a good thing if I absolutely must. And my hair doesn't quite cover it all, and I tend to have my hair up because it gets in the way plenty, as well as for work.

My thought in placing it was something like this. I tend to wear long-sleeved shirts and pants and am somewhat body-shy.. I didn't want to go through the pain (and price) of getting a tattoo such as on my ankles or shoulder that rarely would ever be seen.

Gotta say, you've got guts. And the neck would be a pretty cool place for a tattoo. There's no other place that's makes a tattoo look just as catchy! ;)
