    Pain varies for different people I think. Mine felt like someone dragging a needle 3-4mm deep through my arm. Some compare it to being scratched by a cat.

    Certain parts of your body are more sensitive than other areas too so would also depend where you are getting it.

    from what i can remember (i've had it 12yrs) it wasnt that bad. although i did have it on my shoulder, but it did smart a little when doing fine detail on no fat areas...

    Without meaning to cause too much offence, I think that tatoos are for cackers and trailer trash. Never seen a nice one either - just think about all those fools who had 'celtic bands' and barbed wire tatooed on their arms 10+ years ago. I bet the vast majority regret having them done.

    I agree with Silver 75 though - if you're going to have be tatooed, at least go for something full-on than a cliched 'dolphin on the shoulder' or devil on your arse. :nyah:

    I haven't got any tattoos - not my thing.

    I agree with Tim.

    Personally, I don't like them. Ex has plenty of tattoos, my cousins and girlfriends got some. They said didn't hurt. You don't know until you get it done.

    Agree with Tim too, I think they are so often done as short sighted ideas or fashion reasons. Never seen a tatto I really liked or thought I'd ever want one. People have showed me ones they've had done and while I appreciated the artistry and designs on some, I just dont like them on skin :p

    Same with (other than ear) body piercings, I just don't understand them - they offer no purpose and you're just tainting your body for life. I guess if you hate your body that much, but I'm quite happy with mine and have no desire to draw all over it or punch holes in weird and wonderfull places :p

    I have one its a 10" Oriental Dragon on my right upper arm, and yes it did hurtbut i'm glad I had it done, just make sure you keep good care of it, and by that I mean don't scrub it with a rough sponge etc and make sure you apply sunblock to it if its exposed to the sun, otherwise all the thin lines will end up really thick and shitty looking

    Ah, I must disagree there, a nice flat sun kissed stomach(female) with a belly button piercing is soooooo hot!

    At least with piercing you can remove it when it gets old. Tats look good when their fresh & on young flesh, but hideous when you're knocking on 40+.
    If you must scar bits of your body go for a great white shark bite across the shoulder, much more impressive.

    Tattoo's can be removed! I think 20+ years from now they will come up with a painless method too.

    Have a tattoo of an elephant.. that way if you do get old and wrinkly it wouldn't look too unsightly.

    This is my main tattoo. Also got a dragon on my right arm. It's not really worth takin a pic of. The only bit that i thought was uncomfortable with the 1 on my back was when he went across the my spine. Kinda made my bones rattle a bit :confused:

    [​IMG]

    Keep thinking of going for another to cover the dragon up. Something similar to what's on my back. Prob staring at the top of my arm then ending at the elbow

    this is a discussion forum, where people can discuss. I dont own an S3 but I have advice on them...does that mean I can't post in the S3 section when someone has asked something ? NO

    I don't have tat's, does that mean I can't post here ?

    I think you can guess what the answer is !

    NO !

    I think you can guess what the answer is !
    NO.
