Ok. So here's the horse head.

And then I came up with this idea. All three of them inside a horse shoe. Thought it came out pretty good.

Jazzy... IMO I think you are about the same size I was when I got mine in on my back. ( a few kids and a couple too many cookies later I am writing this ) I didn't hurt over the backbones it didn't really "hurt". I don't know if you have ever gotten into a patch of stinging nettles. They are kind of like poison ivy. But to me it was an uncomfortable sting type of feeling. And my tattoo is about the size of my open hand, fingers together.. They guy that did it took a couple short breaks and it quit stinging the minute he quit. The whole process took just over an hour so it wasn't so bad. I only made faces when it got close to the tips of my shoulder blades.

Its really going to depend on what kind of pain tolerance you have. And whether you can manage mind over matter. As in if you don't mind it don't matter.

I have a pretty high pain tollerance. I don't mind getting stuck with a needle at the Dr. Office. Drawing blood. Donating blood. None of that hurts me because I know its for a purpose so its ok in my mind.
I took that same attitude to the tattoo parlor. And voila! I'm inked.

I don't know where you are getting yours, but I know someone who got an anklet of running horses on her could do that and have 3 of them be colored like your guys with the rest of them in black...

Appy - hehehe so cute :) I don't mind that idea actually but I think I have a better head pic of possum. Thanks for the other pic ;)

Dumas - I have a pretty high pain tolerance really. Just one example: a few christmas' ago we went camping and fishing for a few days with a friend. We found a nice spot on the river that had a somewhat rotting away mini jetty so we had somewhere to tie the boat. Our mate was helping me out of the boat (cause im short and it was low tide so I couldnt make it myself lol) as as he yanked me up one of my legs fell between the jetty and the boat. I was pulled up again but underneath the jetty there were long rusty nails and as I came up my leg dragged along it and it embedded in my skin. I then had to pull my leg down so the nail was out as the stupid nail was attached to the jetty so if I wanted to move I had to pull back. It felt like a hot knife was tearing through my leg but you gotta do what you gotta do. My philosophy is 'pain don't hurt if ya don't let it' :) if I know something is hurting I ignore it as if its not there instead of focusing on it and 'feeling' the pain if that makes sense lol

Wow that was a long winded way of saying 'yes, I have high pain tolerance' lol

But yeah I think im going to go with in between my shoulder blades.

Tim - that's a beautiful idea I think I might get that somewhere too ;) just something small but meaningful. Thank you

I just took the pics off the forum just to give you an idea. And I tried to make it look as nice as possible!

I definitely want to see pics when you do get it done! :)

I actually like that one of jarred and cougar though :) they are probably the ones I would use or maybe a diff one with cougar not sure but yeah, I like it :)

I will most definitely post pics. I think my friend said she is coming on the 20th so that's 10 days away. I can't wait now but I have to settle on something so im glad I have that long :)

Babies? As in horses? I would never get a tattoo of something that isnt permanent. Hence a horse, boyfriend etc. If its not something that will always be around and permanent I would not get it done. Because that person, or animal will be around forever, there is no guarantee that you will want a picture of it.

That's just me. What about the tattoo of a horse in general, does it have to be one that you have, or own?
    05-10-2008, 05:08 AM
Yeah as in horses. I get what you mean but I was kinda thinking of making ita bit of a tribute. Each horse I own gets his own spot. But I dunno

It doesnt have to be my guys but I havent been able to find a picture nice enough to have it tattooed. The closest I've come so far is that one appy posted of the horse head. I really like that. Simple but pretty :) if you have any nice pics you want to share I would sure like to see them I havent been able to find a whole lot that grabs me so far

I think whichever way I will at least get their names somewhere. Its like a friend of mine. He has a special tattoo for each child he has. Theyre really lovely

Here are a few I have found. Im not sure on any of them but they are on the maybe possibly list :)

I wouldnt have the unicorn horn on the next one though

I like the one that appy posted of just the black outlined horses head. I'm not crazy about the ones that you posted jazzy but it is YOUR desision. If I had to choose one that you posted it would be the running horse. I don't like the unicorn with or without the horne.. His head looks weird. And the Last one looks like a Budweiser commercial.

My tattoo is a black tribal-y thingy. LOL I don't know what to call it. :roll: Are you leaning more towards a black tattoo or were you wanting something with full detail and color? I personally like the black ones because I an VERY picky when it comes to full color and detail... TO me there is nothing worse than a tattoo that is supposed to look real.. because they just never do.

***** disclaimer notice******

IF you don't want my 2 cents just tell me so... I'd gladly shut up and let you decide!

After all you are half way around the world from me and opinions are like elbows everyone has them!
