Yep, that's one thing about white and red ink. For some reason, they seem to be the hardest colors to keep looking nice as they tend to fade out.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

It's not that they are faded actually. They are still pretty new (less than 2 months). They just look odd for whatever reason. I think it was a combo of the white ink and the fact that knuckle skin is apparently crappy and not good for tattooing (or so I've been told by people who know more about this than me).

(Pardon the cat scratch!)

I'm thinking of getting another tattoo on my other wrist in the shape of a heart with some memorial for my mother. I have this obsession with hearts and heartagrams, so...
heartagram, nice :) I want to either get one on the back of my neck or a really elaborate one along by ribs.

Depends on your threshold of pain and where you get it. A tattoo on your ribs will probably hurt a fair amount while a tattoo on your arms or legs will have minimal pain. :)

Yep, depends on where you get it. The one on my shoulderblade didn't hurt at all, but the big red shield was 2 hours and 45 minutes of absolute agony (small of my back). Basically the rule of thumb is 'the fleshier the area, the less it will hurt'. So on a bony area like your foot, it will hurt more than it would on your arm and pretty much anything on your spine is going to give you a good amount of pain.
