Tribal Turtle Tattoo

I got this tattoo just a few days ago. The idea for the design came from LunaNero in her deviation titled "A Lizard, a Turtle, a Crab".

This is my first tattoo, and I definitely don't regret it. Many thanks go out to my tattooist, Johnny, and the wonderful artist, LunaNero!!

wow... that actually turned out a lot better on skin than I thought it would! Glad you like it and thanks for sharing!
Now encourage me to get mine done... lol

I think everyone should get at least one tattoo. It only hurts when the needle is going over bone, lol.

I want this one [link] on my neck... on the left side and more towards the back... it'd only be about two inches long. I think tattoos are something you do for yourself, not for anyone else, so it's not about displaying them, it's about them being kinda hidden but still there, if you get what I mean... I've been thinking about this one since I designed it... maybe I'll do it next year for my birthday...

I was about to go all copyright on your butt XD But then I realized I should check the original to see first. I'm glad you asked permission, so many times people have stolen work for a tattoo. And I mean, I have no problem with people getting a famous character or something, but someone's personal work with no permission is evil.

Anyway...It's a nice tattoo, I really like it.

Haha, there's no point in stealing artwork...I think most people would be flattered that someone wants to have their work on their skin forever. If LunaNero hadn't been as gracious as she was, I'm sure I would've found another tattoo design somewhere. :spork:

Exactly. Some people, if they don't want you taking that specific piece or character, will make you something else just because you like their art. So I don't see the point of doing it without permission.

sorry i don't know how i did it but i was going to comment i want a tattoo too but i'm to young

I also had to wait a while. :) But you should think of that as a good thing...it gives you time to make sure your design is exactly what you want.

That'll take a few hours. :) How old do you have to be to get a tattoo?

My mom and I got our tats the same day. It was a first for both of us.

I'm assuming they don't approve...

Its *your* skin...

I'm pretty sure that everyone in Florida has at least one tattoo. I could be wrong, but I don't think so.

Cute.
Did it hurt?

Only when the needle went over my shoulder blade. Other than that it was more annoying than anything else. :)
