    Well i am half italian (and i look it) so i have pretty dark skin. In the winter it gets pale but i do a lot of tanning and it gets real dark in the summer.

    And yes usually if you got o a tattoo shop and ask them to draw you out something (if they're good) they can draw you something right there. That's what our guy does, you can just go up to him and tell him to draw... a monkey and he can and will

    Also, at the shop i am going, they have tons of boards up with drawings from the tattoo artists you can look at and pick any one of them. I don't know if they do that anywhere else though. It's pretty cool.

    Personally, I would go with the 3rd (green & blue), because according to my first tattoo artist, colours that peel the LEAST, in order, are black, blue, green. The WORST for peeling, according to same artist, is red (I have an all red Aerosmith logo tattoo, and I can attest to the major peeling!)

    Just my .02
    I do have one other tattoo, and it has a lot of red and it didn't really peel too bad, but the red was actually the only part that peeled.

    does this have any significance? i want a tat, but only if it has significance to me and my life... so most likely i wont get one hehe
    No it doesn't really have any significance, i just found out yesterday i was getting a tattoo so i went and googled some butterfly tattoos and found that one
    My other tattoo was for my father, it says R.I.P. DAD in a heart, but this one has no real special meaning, its just really pretty

I checked both guy's portfolio's but I guess with things like photo shop you can touch errors up. I am going to be such a b**** about my future tattoos. I'm a perfectionist, and I can't have bad tattoos!
    It will be sketched. I am going to go to the tattoo shop and have him pull up my photobucket, he's going to print out the one i like best and work with it. He likes to add things so it may look a little different
    Oh and the tattoo guy is a very close family friend. He has been tattooing for 20plus years and i trust him completely. He did all of my mom's tattoos, all my dads tattoos, and pretty much everyone in my family And for free too

    No, i don't mind at all

    I'm not really the girly type
    Black and Neon green are my two fav. colors.

    Don't worry about that. Body Art (what the place is called) is probably the second best tattoo shop in NJ. Germ's (another tattoo artist) being the first best of course, in my opinion

A good tattoo shop will also apply a mock tattoo on you so you can see if that's what you really want. Hope that helps! Does your tattoo have a significant meaning, that you would be willing to share?
    Yeah he put a mock tattoo on me for my last tattoo. And i really want to make the choice before i go there, i really need to make sure it's what i want, so i need to think about it.


    Thanks everyone for all your opinions!

    Re: Getting a new tattoo....

    Well it looks like it's between 3 and 4 for me. I did a lot of thinking all last night and today, stared at those pics for hours. And i'm pretty sure it's going to be 4, but i like 3 a lot too. It's so hard to chose when you like all of them!

    I am actually wondering if the orange on four will stand out enough against your skin color. You do want something that will not blend in with the skin color you have. Make sure you ask the tattoo artist also!

    Re: Getting a new tattoo....

    Well i want a bright orange. I am in love with neon colors, so i want a neon orange and a neon green. I'm sure it will stand out. Right now i'm kinda pale, since it's winter and i rarely ever venture outside during winter. Can't stand being wet and cold
    I am still not too sure. 4 is the first one i came up with, since i, personally, love orange and green together. The Blue and Green kind of look a little too similar to me. The blue doesn't stand out enough for me. idk, i still have a bit to think about it...
    If i still can't decide on which one i want by Monday, i'll let Bobby (the tattoo artist) pick

    Re: Getting a new tattoo....

    I have 5 tattoos, hey i was in the Navy give me a break!

    But all my tats are very colorful! Right now they are between 5 and 8 years old, and im very pale, but used to tan to get really dark, here are some pics of mine. None of them have ever pealed or lost any color.




    And this is my oldest tattoo, it is over 8 years old and i took this 1 min ago to show you:

    Its a bit blurry, but you can see the red, pink, brown, blue, and black are all very colorful and bright just like a week after i got it.
