My tattoo. =)
I designed it myself from elements of a floral pattern particular to the Kaszuby region of Poland, where my dad (and larger part of my family) is from.
I got it done at Anchor Steam in Newport, RI - they're awesome. =) It only took Jen (the lady who did it) a little over an hour. [link]

I'm really psyched about it.

Thanks! I actually waited a little over 6 months before I got mine. It gave me more time to think about it - that, and my sister said, "If you promise you won't do it right when you turn 18, I'll pay for it." XD

Thanks.
Just make sure you go to a professional-looking place! Check it out beforehand, or go with someone who's gotten good tattoos before.

Was it painful?

It hurt, yeah, but not too bad. It was more uncomfortable than anything else. Cramps or bellyaches hurt worse. XD

The colors and design are beautiful! It does remind me of Europe a lot.

The symmetry rocks too. I :heart: symmetry and balance. :)

Oooh, yay you for recognizing the Europeness. =)
Thanks! I like symmetry. Generally the embroidery patterns are also quite symmetrical, and I wanted to make it look real.

That's instantly what I thought when I saw it. The really neat handiwork they do. I think I remember it because I did a project on Poland in fourth grade. I watched a video about it...it was a beautiful country!

It really looks authentic. :)

Now I miss them! Cute little 4th grade projects. 4th grade was my hardest year of school but I really miss it now. High school for me has been a tad boring. I don't wanna grow up!

mines fully healed and the color's sweet, I've been so careful about going out in the sun at the beach and stuff, haha. Mine only hurt for a few days but then it itched like hell for about a week. and while it was totally lame, I love it enough that I'd do it again :P
