    I'd be pro getting matching tattoos with my sister or rooster . . . but like . . . of what, ya know? NONE of us has a tattoo. We're all lame fux.

    My best friend and I are currently trying to figure out a matching tattoo for when she visits again in the spring. Finding something that fits both of us enough is definitely the hard part.

    I have my best friend’s name tattooed on my arm and and she has mine. We’ve lasted 28 years with each other, I can’t imagine we’ll go down in flames.

    My sister and I both got sun tattoos together. They're different tattoos, in different locations, but we went together and it was an us thing. She got a tattoo as part of her bachelorette party too, and I think some of her bridesmaids did too. I skipped out because $$ and breast feeding. I'm not sure if it's an "approved " activity. I imagine they advise against it but idk.

    My former BFF and I planned to get matching tattoos, but then she bailed at the last minute. Then she went and got matching tattoos with her SIL.

    She's divorced now and I'm not friends with her anymore. Guess I dodged that bullet.

    I just booked a consultation to get my tattoos removed. Both of them. Not discounting the possibility of future tattoos, but I really want my body to be a blank slate again.

    A tramp stamp and a skank flank. :blush:

    Good luck! Hopefully it's an easy enough job. Does it leave scarring at all?

    Ftr, I still like skank flanks. Mine might count as one I think. I wish I could add to it, but I'm at a point in life where I'm not currently interested in spending a lot of money for painful beauty that nobody will ever see anyway.

    @Apples&Oranges If done properly it shouldn’t scar. I hope it doesn’t!! I’m not opposed to getting more tattoos in the future. I just don’t want these ones anymore.

    What would you add to yours? And even if no one sees it, if it makes you happy it’s worth it!!

    Vacations will make me happier than tattoos right now :lol: Even I barely see it. Right now I have two birds silhouettes and I need to add 2 more (the kids). Id love to just have a random water color design all down my back/side around the birds, but $$$. And time and pain that I'm not currently interested in ha. Maybe down the road. I still like what I have, just the thought of more is not as exciting as it used to be.

    That sounds really beautiful! I love watercolor tattoos so much, but I don’t stay out of the sun well enough to make all those delicate colors last.

    I had my first laser removal session. Holy mother of fuck, it hurt SO. MUCH.

    Did they say how many you have to do? Sorry it hurt so bad!

    I've heard its a pretty terrible process :sad: hopefully it gets better? Or your body adjusts, rather. And hopefully not too many sessions.

    I don’t know anything about laser removal but from the looks of your tat after the first session hopefully you won’t need too many!!

    She said the one on my back (the one you saw @Rico Suave) will fade quickly, hopefully that one will be done after another two or three sessions. The one on my ribs though, it’s a lot darker and will probably take a lot more. Ughhhhh. I bought the numbing cream for next time to make it more bearable.

    Have you had LHR? If it’s like that, then the sessions will hurt less as the tattoo fades and there’s less pigment to heat.

    I'm getting a tattoo while we are on vacation. :eek:

    I've wanted one for T since she was born and since we will be in Alabama on Mothers Day, J is taking me to a place that is fairly well known and paying for the work as a gift. :rainbow: I'm excited to get something for my rainbow baby.

    I'm thinking a watercolor iris.

    Make sure the artist you go to is good at watercolor tattoos, like they have them in their portfolio. Went with a friend to get a watercolor tattoo from an artist with loads of good reviews, and it looked great on the day but the pigment just kept falling out. She got it touched up twice for free by the same artist before she finally found someone else to just rework the whole thing and it finally stayed.

    I'm in the parlor waiting for the artist to finish my sketch. Ahhhh. :ghost:

    Or not. We did my paperwork and my nursing exempts me from inkwork. :sad: the artist was so fantastic and honest though. He told me all of the risks (ink in the blood could impact the milk as far as allergies and such) and why he did not feel comfortable working on a nursing mother and refunded me - including the deposit which he was under no obligation to do.
