    You gotta be kidding me. Tattoos are a waste of time and money.

    Everyone feels differently Dawg, totally understandable.
    I have a few now and i like them. (I have 10 earrings too which some people dont like either).
    I like to treat myself every now and then, i dont do drugs and i dont steal or drink, so tattoos are one of the things i like to treat myself with.

    Its going to be one of these. Im leaning toward the dragon with the butterflies, but in purples, blues, emerald greens to match the colors i have on my other tattoos.

    The purple dragon with the girl would be just the dragon.

    It probably will just be on the outside of my leg. Ill see what she wants to do. Thats if i can afford it, my guy just told me she will charge what he charges which is $150 an hour so i will probably have her make it smaller to stay in my budget

    Well,it's still long pants weather.Have you thought about making it in two sessions or more?It could make the cost less painful and you could get exactly what you want.Like,have the outline done and then go back to have it colored in.You're gonna have it the rest of your life,you might as well get what you really want and have no regrets.

    Are you going to have a price tag?Or relevant info associated with it?It would definitely be unique.I wanted a hen and chicks to go with the rooster but I'm too old.Soon I'll have to straiten the wrinkles to make out the pictures on my biceps.....:D
