I can't help but wonder how long it will be before she's looking for someone to cover it up? Or if she will really like it when she's 58?

I don't have a thing against tattoos, but I do wonder about the content of the tattoo. Call me prudish, or conservative, but I have always believed that boyfriend/girlfriend as well as husband/wife names, and band/or song names were kind risky.

The only safe names are children. Bands, songs, movies, etc., are right out.

The main reason I don't have a tattoo myself is that I haven't found something that was so cool I was confident I'd still like it in 20 years.

After 20+ years of figuring out what I would want painted on my body in tribute to something I'd never lose my enthusiasm for, I finally decided on the subject of my tattoo.

And then I decided there were only a few tattoo artists in the world that I would trust to get it right, with all the details. And then I saw that I'll never have that kind of discretionary capital, and gave up on the idea completely. I shall remain inkless.

The subject in question.

I can see where that might be pretty tricky to do well. Where would you put it if you won the lottery?

On the outside of my upper right arm, sized to fit from shoulder to elbow.

I waited a long time to get my first one at age 40. (I'm a late bloomer)

I'd respond with the obligatory request for pics because I am genuinely curious, but I know you won't and I'm cool with that.

How could I possibly forget a post from almost five years ago?

They are pretty.

Thank you. Ok, point taken, I expect you to remember all of my post since inception. :-)

I know at one point, you had asked about one of my LJ user pics(shoulder tattoo). You wanted to know if it was my shoulder and my tattoo.

It does make a nice icon. And how many years ago was that conversation?

Hmmm, good question. I'm not exactly sure, but I believe it has been sometime within the past three years or so.

So, maybe the tattoo really suits her then. Or maybe she's just talking about her dog. *smirk*

I just imagine picking someone up at the club, taking them home, and seeing that for the first time while doing the nasty.

I've got several tattoos, and I wish some of them had been better thought out as far as placement or artist went, but I haven't regretted any in the 16 years I've had them.

I did learn real quick that if I wasn't sure about how I wanted something done, I didn't get it until I was, and that getting flash done just to get ink really isn't the way to go IMO.
