    haha! Yea i'm planning on getting a sampaguita flower on my lower back when i'm 18
    LMAO!!! You crack me up!!!! That's what I heard to, if you get it before you are 18 then the chance for infection is bigger, the pain is stronger and lasts longer and then weeks later... it fades into a huge scar surrounded by a rash!
    Bwaaaaahahahaha! fades into a scar and rash!!!

    Moxie, did it hurt (like a whole whole lot) getting your son's footprints there?

    I'm getting a rose tattooed for my grandma, in memory of her, and I have NO idea where to get it. It's either on either shoulder blade area, or my lower back

    I already have one done, so I know what it feels like, but I just want opinions on places to get it.

    Your tattoos are beautiful though!

    I think meaningful tattoos are the best!

    Personally, the shoulder blades hurt the least. Of course everyone's tolerance for pain is different. I have a tattoo on the top of my foot that was supposed to hurt like HELL, but it hurt less than a lot of the others I have.

    If I were giving advice as to where to get a tattoo, I'd stay AWAY from the lower back, as the one I have there HURT REALLY BAD, honestly I had to take painkillers to get through it. I was lucky enough to know the person who was doing the tattoo, so I was able to take pills to get me through it.

    I'd also stay away from your spine, as it tends to get very tender. Those of us who have tattoo's know that after awhile, your body tends to numb the spot being traumatized, well.... Not to the spine, it never numbs up, so you're sitting there the entire time, feeling each and every prick.

    Another spot I would stay away from is your ankle. Of course that is a popular spot to get them, but by far, one of the spots that gave me the most trouble.

    I got my first tattoo on my shoulder blade, ironically of a rose, I was so nervous about it hurting so bad, once my tattooist started, it was a piece of cake. The work up to the tattoo hurt more than the tattoo it's self.

    Good to know about the shoulder blades, though I do know everyone is different.

    When I got the virgo sign on the inside of my hip, the guy stretched the skin so it was OVER my hip bone... it was bare able, but it still did hurt.

    My big issue with the idea of ever getting a tattoo in your lower back, for the ladies is that most anesthesiologist WILL NOT give you an epidural if a tattoo is in the way. Some studies have shown that certain serious toxins can be released directly into your spinal fluids when going thru a tattoo. A select few say it isn't as big of a risk as it has been posted.

    All of the places available I would stay away from there.

    It's interesting you brought that up, M2G, I didn't have an epi, but I did have a spinal block. They didn't puncture my tattoo, but they went right above.

    I never thought about that point while getting that tattoo down there, great point!

    I only know this because of the unit I worked on. We worked with anesthetists daily and it was something that really made a lot of them quite frustrated. Really impedes on the care they can provide.

    I completely understand that! If I would have known that before I got my lower back tattoo (they call 'em tramp stamps around these parts) I would have given it a second thought.
