i think its a great tattoo and im a little nervous to get mine done being i was thinking of making it in my ear as well. could tell me about the pain, how long and what not? id really appreciate it
jar-of-urine Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2009
The pain was minimal, definitely the least painful of the 12 I got.
It did take a while though since it was in an awkward position.
FalleynAngel Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wow really? ive heard that is one of the most painful but then again everyones pain tolerance is different.
but thank you ^^ i appreciate it
jar-of-urine Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2009
Hmm that's weird. I literally almost fell asleep while getting it... I have that area pierced on the other side and now THAT was painful, but not the tattoo.
DarkMusical Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2010
i agree that cartilage piercings hurt. my friend just did mine like on sunday and it still hurts like CRAZY. i cant wait til it stops hurting and heals.

i love this tattoo btw. but i agree that it looks painful, but im not allowed to get tattoos.. so yeahh.
FalleynAngel Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist

lor-black Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
I love the idea of this tattoo! :) I've been wanting to get one that's not noticeable, so my parents can't have a go at me, and that seems like a good idea.

Total fave, because it looks so cute :D :+fav:

haha ty very much. It's a wonderful spot for one.

evannietrash Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2008
oh wow! this is awesome!! and sooo cute & a cool idea. my ears are too small >.< damn :D
VanSD Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2008
Loved the place where you did the first :)
droplette Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2008
this is awesome! i've got a ear tattoo myself and i was just curious if you thought that ears take ink as easily as the rest of your body, (example forearm, neck, etc.) All of my tattoos healed up beautifully and so did my ear but now the lines are not as solid as i had hoped and am going to get it touched up. How long have you had this one and how does it look now? i've wondered maybe skin covering cartilage just doesn't take ink well.

Anyways, i love this =D
jar-of-urine Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2008
They definately don't take color as well and the guy that did it informed me of that, but also promised free touch ups for life. Right now it only has the black outline in it.

What did you gett tattoo'd in your ear if you don't mind me asking?
droplette Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2008
Ahh yes yes I see. Yeah I have to go back for a touchup I do believe, I think I want to go over it in a dark green... right now its kinda a mint colour. Gotta love the ink artists that take care of us!! <3

Welll it is quite difficult to describe because it truly isn't a "thing". My ears are quite small and are deeply curved with lots of ridges and valleys, there isn't a relatively flat, big enough space that an image would fit on. Yours looks awesome, but it wouldnt fit in my ear I'd only have room for say that cute bow. My ear tat is actually a great compliment to my tattoo artist. I told him that I wanted to follow the natural curves in my ear with simple flowing lines that ended in little flourish thingys and I told him where I wanted the main lines to be. And also that I trusted him haha. So he free-handed it completely, with no reference, and a strong taste in his mouth for what I liked. I ended up with an amazing surprise. I love it! It was probably my most exciting tattoo because I didn't know exactly what I was getting until he was done. The best way I can describe it is that into the largest area, there are the most swirls. There are two main lines that end in a total of 5 teeny flourishes up there, accented with two liiiiittle dots. The lines come out of a crease (between the strong vertical-ish bit of cartilage and the outer ear fold) and up into the top inner part of the ear (where yours is). In my ear this ^^ crease is deep and you actually cant see into it unless you fold my ear apart haha. Inside of there he put one single henna-inspired dot. Then out of the bottom part of the crease I have a single line that comes down and ends in relaxed swirl at the utmost top of my earlobe. The last bit is on a peice of cartilage, I dont know what its called ummm, the little rounded bit that sticks out on its own. Just above the lobe? Where your ear attaches to the jaw haha? The line is a single itty bitty swirl that rolls forward towards the face but remains on the cartilage. He started the line of it on the backside of the cartilage so it looks like its coming out of my ear canal. It's pretty neat!!
I hope thats an alrite description. It's the best I can do with words. I would send you a picture but it's a difficult picture to take, everytime I try with my crappy camera I can't get the proper light exposure. It either does not light it at all or completely wash the pale colour out.... perhaps I will sketch it up and put it in my gallery. If I do I'll let you know so you can see =)

Haha sorry for my babbling, I just truly love tattoos. I could talk about them for hours!! Is it too bold of me to ask about any other tattoos you may have?
jar-of-urine Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2008
lol I would need a picture to fully understand that tattoo I think.

I have 9 others now. Would have more but alas, no money. >_<

umm lets see. there is the octopus on my foot, and love written in arabic on my ankle. a set of rainbow stars on my hips. an owl on my shoulder blade. A beautiful mermaid on the left of my chest. (I'm really picky about mermaids) a one up mushroom on the back of my neck, a seahorse behind my other ear, a less than three on the inside of one wrist and a heart with a peace sign on the other wrist.
droplette Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2009
they all sound very awesome!!!! i would love to see the owl!! well i would like to see all of them o course but thats the one that strikes me as most interesting =D
jar-of-urine Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2009
okay I will try to get a picture of it.. may take a day or two lol
jar-of-urine Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2009

I look morbidly obese in the picture but that's it.
tenshiemi328 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2008

Wwilbur Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2008
I think i got my tat done at the same place you did i saw the pic in one of the books. Did you get this done by Mike @ Artistic Soul?
jar-of-urine Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2008
Well it was done by a mike but it was at extreme illusions in gainesville but he left shortly after so... probably the same guy! where is that located I'd love to have him do some more on me.
Wwilbur Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2008
