Anyone here have tattoos? I have several but I just got a new one Saturday. Its a Pink Floyd inspired tat. I love it and it has a lot of meaning for me. I have another one planned that I might get this fourth of July and I have a big one planned for our 10 year annivarsary in a few years. Anyways here is my new one and I would love to see pictures of anyone else's tattoos:

This one is a little big. This was taken the day it was done:

i know of 2 people who have a back-tatt and got the epidural shot. They are okay...i guess it just depends on the doctor. But after reading that it's making think twice about getting the epidural when I'm in labor. (when I get pregnant)

there is no real harm in having tattoos on your lower back. Its really just a precaution for the anesthesiologist. The ink cannot harm you in any way. This issue is that the needle they use to give you the epidural could push ink into your spinal column. but this isnt so. the ink is in the layer of skin and has already fused and become the skin. So its no more dangerous than skin thats not tattooed. I was concerned about this myself but I learned that its not as bad as some doctors make it seem.

I have 6 tattoos and I will post some pictures.....I love this thread. Cant wait to see more tattoos.

I have heard such stories but I have never heard any real life issues with them and epis. Me personally I would not get a tattoo over my spine but that just me. My other tattoo goes over my shin a little and that hurts the most so I would not get another one that goes over my spine.

I have a few more. 1 I don't post online because its hard for me to explain it so that people don't get mad. So yeah I don't show that online. I have a incomplete heart on my left ankle (that I should have had finished saturday) that I am gonna get finished soon when I take my next trip to florida. I just need the outline finished and colored in. I am thinking of this type effect:


but looks more like dripping paint.
I also have a black sun on my right ankle. Had it done when I was young and it did not come out right (not done by my current studio) but I don't want it covered. I just wanna get it fixed up.
