Microblog Mondays - For My Consideration-A Tattoo


Not the dwarf on Fantasy Island yelling "The plane, The plane" and I realize I just showed my age.

But a tattoo.

I've considered it on and off for a long while.

Reasons for not getting one were twofold.

1) I don't like pain. At all.

2) I never found something I wanted decorating my body for the rest of my life.

Well, I'm thinking the second one might not be an issue.

I might get my mother's signature as a tattoo.  I like the idea. I like the idea that my mother would have completely despised the idea.

But the pain--kinda scary to me.

So, for all those who have made that leap--are you glad you did? Was the pain awful?

Considering minds want to know.


  1. I do not have a tattoo, though the things that have given me pause are the same thing -- I don't like pain and I can't think of anything I want permanently on my body. Even though I like the idea of a tattoo.

  2. I considered getting a tattoo (a Celtic knot) on my ankle for my 40th birthday, but then realized that I don't have the patience to sit still for a haircut.

    More seriously, I have a few friends with tattoos, and they all say that it doesn't hurt much, and how much it hurts depends on where it is (the fleshier the area - bicep, thigh - the less likely it is to hurt much). Feet and ankles are apparently the worst.
