Thanks to all of you again for the ideas.

I love the pinstriping effect..Very striking and wouldn't be at all too heavy..
I think that would be kind of neat to create the reverse image and then I may perhaps put an archer's arrow (for Sag) somewhere in there..I will have to print them out and put it together and see what it looks like.

Krazykat..I will just have to print your post out and take it with me when I go as I will surely forget all that or get it mixed up and they will then think I was nutty..

I am going to play around and see what I come up with...then I will let you know when I get it done and how it went..It won't be for a few months likely...
My bday is in December but so close to Xmas that I usually get my own present mid year (Summer)...

Thanks again!

The entire "gun" or machine as most tattooers call it cannot be autoclaved. The mechanical part that looks like it has 2 spools of thread enclosed in a metal frame would be ruined if it were exposed to steam sterilization. Those things that look like spools of thread are electromagnetic coils. They are often bagged for barrier control, but not everyone does that because it can cause them to run hot. That part does not come into contact with the tattoo, so it does not really matter. The tubes, the part that artist holds on to, and the needles which are on bars that run through the tubes should always be opened in front of you, and the needles broken off the bars in front of you when they are done. The bars can be reused, but not the needles. If they say they do it at the end of the day, or anything but break them off and put them immediately into a biohazard box, chances are that they are reusing those needles.http://www.visible-creations.de/mode...oo-machine.jpg
Here is a link to a picture of a tattoo machine for those of you that have never seen one up close, and are following this thread. They all look pretty much alike, and have since the late 1800s. They were invented by Thomas Edison as metal engravers, and a gentleman by the name of Sam O'Riley electrified them and used them for tattooing. There is your useless trivia for the day!
Thanks chick!

I couldn't think of a better way to describe the parts they do clave, so I generalized.. though.. I didn't know that those were electromagnets, how cool! I'll tell Jason, he'll be so impressed that I know that now :P

Here is a pic of one on my calf. He is bringing the good camera home and we will get some of the others. We couldn't get a good pic of the cat on my shoulder with my camera. What do you think?

Those are AWESOME! I would love to get the Virgo symbol on one arm, and the Aries symbol on the other (my rising sign). I'd probably go smaller, but I love the design and the stars around them! Though I need to get two removed first.

Is that pretty new or do you have some brilliant tips on keeping your skin in tip-top condition! That is a great tatt!

I'm aiming to get my new ones in the next month or so - as an i've finished uni treat and one in memory of my Nana and Grandad! (Nana and Grandad written in Gujarati) I'll just have to top up an my Preparation H before I go!

I'll try to get someone to photography my tatt on my lower back and i'll try to take a decent one of my ankle!

I always love to see the artwork everyone else has! We need to see more!

It was done in 2001. I never go out in the sun, and I have a really good artist. I have some that are much older that are nearly that bright.

I just took this one of my lower back tattoo this morning. This is probably my favorite of all of mine. [also most painful ] I tried to get one of my shoulder tattoos, but I couldn't really bend my arms that way, lol.

Here is a pic of my tattoo I have another one on my right ankle that I don't have a pic of yet...I got it back in 2001 one though--it's a butterfly. I got this one in August 2000.
