I want to get a good tattoo - a masonic one - who in Brisbane would I go to - if you do not want to put their name here can you p/m me with any recommendations - I have never had a tattoo and have always wanted one so might get one but need to have some one who is clean and knows what they are doing - also how do you work out a price ?????

Hi Andy,
Some go per hour for the tattoo, some have a set price.
Have you had a look on the net for a design you like, there are a few good sites & that way you will get what you want.

Have a good day
Shell

Good on you Andy!
You will get addicted to getting them.

Bepanthene is good to put on them, keeps it moist.

WTG Andy!
As Shell said, you will become addicted in no time. And I agree with Bepanthen... that's what I have been using on my 2 new ones (which are all healed up now )

Woo hoo, That's a great tattoo Andy
I have a tattoo on my back (right hand side) of a daffodill- got this 2 years ago. I want to add to it- have a style in mind, a butterfly with a pink ribbon (breast cancer) somehow designed in it.
Tatts are addictive!!
Bepanthan is fantastic

My next one is on the drawing board - a forget me not with lettering (Old Hebrew) with pillars and archway - has anyone got any suggestions or place to find something along those lines.

Andy

I have a tatt of Betty Boop on my butt. I got it 15 years ago, and it is rather faded now. One reward I am planning for myself sometime soon is to give her a facelift!

I'm not going to get a tattoo...don't mind them on other people. But when I get black Nikko pen (translation for all other states of Australia: Texta) on me, I can't stand it...so I guess that's not a good sign when it's permanent

Did think at one stage I'd like a peacock with it's feathers down and looking rather seductive...but, the Miami Ink team are a LOOOOONNNNGGGG way from Sydney...

A girlfriend of mine got a few years ago a Cherry Blossom branch that goes from one side to the other, it's striking and holy crap! a lot bigger than she told me she was going to get. But I agree...better to get one big one than forever think shoulda, woulda, coulda.

I love tattoos.. I have one on my shoulder of a unicorn and ying yang symbol its faded as I got it years ago and my business is pretty much next door to a tattoo shop so when I am slim and terrific I too want this re coloured and I have always wanted a tat on my outside of my thigh..

See what happens.

I love your tat Andy. Looks good.

If I was going to get a tattoo (and I do keep toying with the idea) - I'd either go with a dragon (cause I'm born in the chinese year of the dragon and always loved them - but I would do a glroious old english style dragon, noble and breathing fire I think) and a phoenix (particularly once I shed the weight - as in phoenix rising from the ashes of my old self). Still not sure if I want to do it to my body or not.

Cheers - Kay.
