    I'm getting some new tattoo's tomorrow! Three greyhound portraits on my right arm Yay, ink!
    I love that script, what's it mean?

I actually felt like I had an out of body experience while that part was being done. The rest of the work around my wrists didn't really feel any different from any of the other tattoos I have. So yeah, little pointy bone = pain. I should mention that I have very skinny wrists without much cushioning, so maybe it will be different for others with more fleshy wrists.
    Yeah, me too. One of the few places on my body where I have no padding at all Ok, so I'll brace myself when he gets to that bit.

Yes it hurts! for a tattoo the size that your getting its not worth taking anything, and advil, tylenol, Do nothing for that kind of pain. Best thing to do is eat an hour so before (not really an issue for PB folks.) and avoid alcohol the day before and caffeine the day of, or at least a few hours before. The pain has more to do with the amount and density of nerve endings in a particular spot, i.e. the ribs and arm pit are very dense, while the deltoids are not. elbow, dense. Behind the ear, not.
    My advice other than choose a good tattooer, (look online at portfolios from shops in your area, Look for clean, non wobbly lines, Tattoos should look dark and saturated not grey and washy, that stuff doesn't last. Bold will hold) is to get into the pain. Dont grip and squeeze to try to bear the pain, this actually floods your capillaries and will stimulate the nerve endings, thus more pain. instead, just let the pain go through you. Its a rite of passage getting a tattoo and it is pretty damn primal, So embrace it.
    And don't forget to tip.
    It isn't my first, but my other is on my shoulder and it didn't bother me at all.

    Thanks for the advice, I'm happy with my choice of artist, he does good work that I've seen in pictures and in real life http://www.abandonedart.com/jonnysbio.html

        A tattoo is more than just appearance. I remember what I was doing at every point in life I got tattooed. I remember the artist who did each tattoo, what song was playing, where I was living. They're memories.

        Will try to post some pics when I get home.

          I apologise, DR, it was insensitive of me. I have a friend (well she WAS a friend) who has a maggoty apple tattooed above her right boob - with the legend 'rotten to the core'.

          Last I saw her she was having a witch tattooed (IN FULL COLOUR) down her back.

            I have a tattoo on my right wrist and it was ok until the guy got to the pointy bone. That kind of reverberated through my body. Weird stuff! I think it is painful, but I also got it when I was 18 so what did I know about pain at that point?!

            I have 3 more on the line-up to get. They are going to go down my spine (more towards the top/back of the neck).

              The only wince-inducing part of my wrist tattoo was the top curl, nearest my hand - maybe an inch from the wrist/hand crease?
              Ankle bone was grim, front of hip made me nearly black out (nowt to do with hangover / bad diet etc etc...!), lower back was so ticklish I had to tense up to try not to squirm around. Bad!

              I want another now

                  I do a pain coping exercise in my childbirth classes using ice. We start out just holding the ice, but later change to applying it to the wrist. For half the class, it hurts like CRAZY to hold ice there. The other half hardly notice it. It makes me think wrist innervation is highly variable from person to person.

                    Its Tibetan "om man padme hum" a buddhist mantra for compassion.

                    Why would you be old and wrinkled? Your gonna be super fit when your old, not to mention all the vit D, E DHA and high quality fat will keep your skin looking fantastic. Besides I don't want to die without any scars, Why not make them beautiful scars.
                    Or as some like to say: The body is your temple, sometimes temples need a little paint.

                      Depends on where you get them if age will be an issue. I don't see too many really wrinkly wrists!!

                        That sounds fantastic! I'd love to have a backpiece one day, money allowing. And no apology necessary. I was just making a counterstatement.

                          That...

                          Plus, I really can't forsee a time when I will regret having my children's names on me, no matter how old I get. Personally I hope I'm around long enough to be so wrinkly I look like a sharpei Getting old and wrinkly (whilst in excellent primal health) is far better than the alternative

                            The wrinkly part is why I decided to get my tattoo on my foot. Don't see too many wrikly feets either (yes the poor grammar was done on purpose)

                              I have tattoos in anticipation of wrinkles, it will distract from them. Covered head to toe wiu some blank areas waiting to be done. Wrists weren't fun but not excruciating like ribs or belly.
