    tattoos are so expensive because of the time put into them. They are art. Would you give a professional artist $20 to paint whatever you have in mind... same goes for a tattoo artist.

    Considering some artists dont charge for the prior-to-getting time, the time they spend drawing, setting-up the rooms, and clean is generally not included in teh price; hence a large tip.

    The actual price($129+) goes for the cleanliness of a place. If you go to a grungy place and get it for $80 an hour, think about who their customers are... how the place looks, etc.

    A tattoo is VERY difficult to do... a persons body is not like paper(it has curves) and people tend to move when getting a needle, thousands of times... $129 is a fair price.

    Looks cool. Enjoy it while you're young because it might looked messed up when you're in your latter years.

    What do you mean by touched up.

    I'd get a tatoo of flowers but I'm afraid of the needles.Everytime I see a need I have a panic attack and fainted/passed out.

    meaning over years your skin DOES stretch out and what they can do is brighten it up and add a few new peices to the tattoo to make it look more like a 100% complete tattoo rather than this stretched out, distorted thing...

    also, since you pass out at needles, its more of a pen, not really like a shot kind of needle (like the doctors office), and if you do pass out, they have to stop the tattoo and make sure your alright, etc.

    that or bring some music, take some pain pills, and relax while your there and it should be done relatively soon, then you just have to slap it a few times a day to keep the sting from coming around. If you scratch it you risk going to the ink layer and smearing the ink around...

    you can get a prescription from a local doctor for a cream that nums the skin. Dont look at the needle. Ive been in 6 times now, and i havent even seen the equipment they use, the closest thing is on Myth Busters when they tattooed a piece of meat, and on How Its Made when they showed tattooing.

    Before you go, you HAVE TO eat something... without food in your stomache, you can get low blood sugar and become nauseous

    a car tends to be a bad thing to get for a tattoo...

    generally a tattoo has a meaning to you, like a rememberance tattoo for someone who has died, etc. but its also attractive for YOU. After all, it is on your body for the rest of your life, you better like it, and it better have meaning to it.

    Pretty cool tattoo. I wouldn't want something like a skull or something death like cause what's it gonna be like when you're like 75 and you have a skull on you...odd but ok.

    I am gonna get a tattoo when I get older but it's gonna be like an eagle with a cross n stuff like that.

    Yeah my cousin got a tattoo done and it cost her like 200 something.

    But what happens if your like getting the tattoo done and you flinch and he like screws up or something, you screwed?
