Piercings and tattoos? If none thoughts on them…

I have my ears pierced (got them pierced for the first and only time when I was 27 years old), but I have no tattoos. I would love to get the Firefly logo tattoo on my wrist and a small TARDIS tattooed on one of my fingers. But I don’t know if that will ever happen. I’m not a fan of pain and, even though I was told by my doctor that I must have a high threshold for pain, I’m not sure I can handle it. I would like to find a trusted person with a tattoo gun (? tattoo machine, whatever they’re called) to tattoo nothing (no ink) on the areas that I want the tattoos. That way I will know if I can handle it or not. Make sense?

    I don’t have tattoos for the same reason! And I’m also a Dr. Who fan……

    I have two tattoos and a lot of piercings. As far as how a tattoo feels….to me, it felt like someone was slicing into my skin with a knife. A lot of people get different feelings from it…my hubby said it felt like bee stings and my mom (when she got hers) said the pain didn’t bother her at all. But to me, it literally felt like the girl was taking a knife and slicing down my skin. It was VERY painful (especially the one on my back). HOWEVER, the pain of the tattoo literally goes away the second they stop what they’re doing. It’s not like a piercing where it hurts like a mofo for weeks (and god forbid you accidentally hit the new piercing…DAMN THAT HURTS).

    If you’re thinking of getting a tattoo, I would go with a very simple and small design first. They get them done really quickly…a tiny tattoo that doesn’t have much detail would probably take 10 minutes tops. Also, get it in an area that doesn’t hurt too badly. The tattoo on my back hurt a lot, but the one I got on my forearm barely hurt at all (fatty areas tend to do best when it comes to less painful tattoos).
