So, I know we have an ugly tattoo thread, so I figured we need a yay tattoo thread. Actually, I mostly had a question regarding tattoos, as my virgin skin is yet to be graced with one, but didn't want to make a tattoo thread exclusive for my question because it would probably die before it even hit two pages and be a total waste of everyone's time... So, consider this a thread where anyone can post pictures of amazeballs tattoos that they like, designs that they want, show off tattoos that they have... Generally any kind of positive (as in not snarking on ugly tattoos since there is already a thread for that) tattoo porn/discussion. Anyway, here is my question... Hopefully I can get some opinions, and then everyone can carry on with love of tattoo discussion: I've done a lot of laser in the past (back, arms, face...). Some areas took well, such as my back and upper arms, and others not as much, namely my face and lower arms. This was a few years ago... Recently I've started going to a new place to do work on my face and lower arms. It is a trillion times more painful than anything I remember. I wanted to go on and do legs and my bikini area, but the unimaginable pain has me reconsidering. With all that said, I'm one of those people who already has in their mind a long list of tattoos that they want to get. Now that I'm out of my parents house, I can finally start getting tattooed and was hoping to get my first in a few months. Thing is, after my fourth inexplicably painful laser hair removal treatment, I'm not sure if I'll be able to handle the pain of tattoos. I know everyone handles pain differently, but when a person is comparing hair removal versus tattoo pain against themselves, they'll surely be able to identify which hurt more for them. Any of you chickens gotten laser hair removal AND a tattoo and can give your opinion of which hurt more out of the two?
