    Ideas I'm turning over regarding my next visit to the shop. I'm thinking these down opposite sides of my ribcage, as in straight down from my armpits.

    What about going down the inside of your arms?

    At this point, I'd like to keep my body modifications coverable. I need to be into a career before I start pushing it. It makes me laugh telling people I have five piercings, and they look around my head confusedly. :haha:

    Man goin down your ribs under your arms would be a PITA for healing. Mind you I'm an idiot and always pick at the scabs...

    My first tattoo didn't scab at all. :dunno: I was surprised. I didn't have any scratching problems either.

    The ribs will hurt like crazy though... :crazy:

    yea there ain't too much muscle on the ribs to suck up some of the pain. Did you get color or black done? Color isnt too bad, but they rake the crap outta you for black.

    The head hits my bottom rib, and the tip of a leaf hit my hipbone. :doah: That one was a surprise!

    See I would almost say that those other tat's would be too close to that one and kinda look weird till you got something to offset it on the other side. That's why I think the inside of the arms would look better. You could always just wear long sleeves to work. thats just my opinion though.

    It looks like there's a minimum of about 4" between the dandelion, and where these would go... And it would hurt like ****ing crazy.

    What about doing them on your back? On either side of your spine?

    I thought about that briefly, then I remembered the words of Sleddog, and how he wished he had saved the space on his back for one, big piece of work... It's under consideration. I was also thinking about the outsides of my thighs, or my calves.

    I feel legs should be sleeved IMHO. You're right about the big one on the back. I dunno I'm still standing by my inner arm placing lol.

    Man I need to get some money so I can go get some more Ink.
