    Mine was not bad at all. I was extremely surprised as I was expecting major pain and it didn't happen.
    Soothing? Oh, mrd, I dunno 'bout that!

    I'll admit, mine hurt. A lot. In fact, I almost walked out of the shop with a short line on my hipbone, that's all. I got a swirly butterfly design - rather abstract - on my abdomen, in the hollow of my hip. When they started doing the outline, I was shocked by the stinging. But after a few more minutes of work, it did sort of numb up a little. It was still much more painful than I imagined it would be. I would never call it soothing.

    You can only see the top part of mine in a bathing suit or low-rise pants, but otherwise it is entirely covered by normal clothing. It's not small. And it has a lot of lighter colors. The tattoo artist told me the stomach, especially over the hip bone, is the one of the most painful places on the body to get ink. Lower back ranked number one. He said shoulders typically aren't bad. Also, as I'm sure you know, Uncle David, they have to go over the areas of lighter colors more than one time, so when you choose yours, you might consider a darker color if the possibility of pain is an issue.

    As for where the tat's will end up over time... yes, I wish sometimes that I had considered that before I rashly decided one weekend after my divorce was final to go to Dallas and get it done! Right now it's fine. I guess that's just another incentive to watch my weight! Stretched out, faded stomach tattoos sound ever so appealing, huh?

    Uncle D if anyone there says boo you can always live in Hawaii where tats and shorts are pretty much the norm, even in most workplaces.

    Hollow? Hip? What's that?

    Yeah, I was wondering that myself. I might have one of those, but I think its hiding.

    My tattoo was on a very fleshy part of me( upper chest to one side, just below my collarbone), so it really wasn't painful. A tad uncomfortble, but even that went away after a while.

    I had an "evoked response test" recently where they put sensors on your fingers and shoot electricity through your arms to measure your nerve responses. Let me tell you, I'd get 100 tattoos rather than have to repeat that test. I felt like I had been tasered for 2 hours. The tat was definetly easier and quicker to get.

    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    No, they think I have MS and it was to check the nerves for "slowing down" in the responses. My test came back "abnormal" but of course, I am still waiting to hear the "official" report.

    Properly know as the hollow of the hip it is also known as the lower abdomen and the pelvic area.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Huh. I haven't seen one of those in the mirror in 21 years - aka the year before I got married .

    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    Ya know, EVERYONE likes a little a**, but NO ONE likes a smart a**.

    Thanks for clearing that up, I don't think I ever had one of those things or 2 of those things in my LIFE!

    Yeah! I used to have two. One on each side.
