    Cool Got myself a graduation present (First ink!)!!!>>>>>!!!!!>>>>

    Well guys, I figured that eights years of college merited something... awesome?

    I've been saving up for this for a while, and today seemed like a good enough day... I graduate tomorrow, and I'm leaving town for a while to go to my cousin's wedding.

    The dude just told me to wash it with soap three or so times a day and keep it from getting dry by keeping lotion on it, not to cover it up or anything.

    Cheers!

    Whaddya think?

    While I'm against tattoos, I think that is one of the coolest I've ever seen. Nice work.

    What a great tattoo. I love it, and I don't like many.

    Do you have a link to the original artwork?

    If I attempted to get a tattoo in that spot on my arm, I would imagine blood would begin to spurt out from the equipment snagging on one of the veins that pops out of my skin. Blech.

    Cool one, though!

    That's really cool, Joe. And fitting, based on what I know of you.

    Thanks for the good words, fellas!

    I woke up this morning expecting to see a little scabbing, but so far there's none... the sign of a good tattoo, from what I hear?

    There's a spot that he had to go over a few times, and within that a piece about half the size of my pinky nail that looks a little wet this morning, but that's about it.

    I'm going to have to buy some more long sleeve shirts for myself for the next few weeks to keep it out of the sun, especially for when I go out to AZ next week.

    I can't stop looking at it....

    Wow, Joe. That is a cool ink job! I don't like very many tattoos, but that is really noteworthy!

    I have one in the same spot and in hindsight, I should have put it someplace less visible. I won't say I *regret* my tattoo, because after 15 years it's just a part of me, but I wouldn't do it again on the forearm.

    Then again, yours is much cooler than mine.

    First, very nice.

    Yeah, that is. It actually takes a couple days to scab up, but if well done it will scab very lightly and evenly. Once that happens, keep it cleaned and lotioned and out of the sun until it has peeled. Do NOT peel it! Let it flake off.

    Then make SURE you put sunscreen on those colors every day. 60+. Colors fade in the sun if you don't protect them.

    In any case, I think the work is clean, and the design is beautiful. It works well as ink on skin. Enjoy!

    I guess the tattoo's ok, but I'm wondering more about the 8 years of college. So is the tattoo cost folded into your loan principal? That's an interesting concept--a tattoo that's paid off over 20 years.
