Laser removal of tattoos is possible. It is not easy. It's a lengthy process and I've been told that the healing can be very painful.

I was talking to a friend the other night about this - explaining the pre-tattoo routine most artists here require you to go through - she just about got hysterical with laughter, saying "you do know it's easier to have a baby, don't you".

About 12 years ago, JayBea and I are on the way up to stay at Timber Cove. She shares with me her wish to get a tattoo, but never had the nerve to get it. She asked if it would be okay and if I would mind. I said "what the hell", so we looked up a tattoo artist in Guerneville. She got her first tattoo that day ... and much to my dismay, do did I Smile She harrassed me into it. They were small tattoo's, on one cheek, (the one's you can't see), so I figured "what the harm?)

It has been kind of a tradition now, and we each now have about six tattoos in different and asundry places.

It's actually kind of neat, and we've got some really beautiful ones!! We haven't started riding Harleys yet though, but then, you just never know what we may do Twisted Evil

I like that story!
I suspect there aren't enough Harley's for all the people who have tattoos.


hmmmmmm, are you allowed to have a Harley without a tattoo?

I got mine for myself, not for style, not for my harley riding needs, not for the group of peers...I think its something many 30 and 40 somethings are actually becoming more widespread of doing for themselves, an expression of sorts.

Funny though that the same age group still can come up with the typical stereotype of harley/tattoo being something one in the same...you kow the whole wild child or something effect.

I enjoyed one Discovery series on Tattoos that included women with total mastectomies, of which are in more years than I <probably close to almost double> of which have decided to decorate these areas, really beautiful stuff that I think does a great deal for them psychologically, as well as artistically for such a personal area of their lives.

Taking into consideration all the persons and reasons for tattooing as of recent, I think that there will be a greater acceptance, understanding, and non-bias in the future.

Just for the record, I mentioned harleys, trailer trash, and altamont because I believe that was probably the mindset of most of middle and upper class america when tattoos started to get popular in the late 80s or 90s. Some of us however, over time, were open minded enough to change our attitudes and that mindset and accept them, though I'm sure many still can't get that motorcyclist stereotype out of their heads.

Isn't that pretty? I wanted that tattoo'd at the base of my spine. I love the dichotomy between it's beauty and it's meaning.

The biohazard sign is very nice, li'lk, and it is a really appropriate position, at least it would be on my body! LOL!

I have a yin-yang with fire and water on my upper left arm, was my first, and my second was a tribal design on my right shin, outside, but my pride is on my tummy, Calvin and Hobbes dancing!

i'm almost set for my next one - a dragonfly. had an interesting discussion with a woman at work today who's got a dragonfly where i've got my first tattoo - we were talking about the symbolism of the dragonfly living in 3 domains - water, then land, then air - she got her dragonfly to embody restarting her life, entering the world of free flight, after a bit of a personal disaster.

ehBeth, that's wonderful. I love dragonflies, and hadn't known/ thought about their symbolism. Very cool combination of esthetics and meaning.
