I don't have one yet, but for kicks, here's the tattoo I do have. It's a JRR Tolkien quote
(those are from two years ago when it was fresh!)

Here are my dancing cranes, in the middle of my back. This was for my first anniversary (the date is our wedding date) - cranes symbolize fidelity and happy marriage. Sorry 'bout the weird stripes - this was taken in the Dominican and I'd been sitting in a plastic chair drinking for too long!
And here is my pride and joy - all shiny and new still from about a year and a half ago. It's on my left calf. I love this thing. It's a phoenix, but not traditional - and I drew it. I love my big blue bird!

(me in pain)
PS- it doesn't hurt me to give blood either. These are definitely different needles!

I got a tatoo of a flower about the size of a very large coin... hmm.. about 2 1/2 inches diamater and it took all of 25 mins (wasn't a complicated design) and didn't really hurt that much.. although my mom was with me and said i looked ready to faint lol
Its not an "oh, that really huts pain!" its more of a "ouch, thats a really annoying pain" lol.. granted that was my experience on my muscle just above the ankle bone so no doubt other areas are wayyyyy more tender

However - if you get a large tattoo like the one on my leg, it can be painful recovering for a couple of days - I swelled up like mad. THAT was what hurt - not the tattoo itself, but the fact that my leg was swollen so much the skin was tight.
