My fellow my lotters, how many tattoos do you have and will you get more? I have 6 and am ready to get number 7. Where was your most PAINFUL tattoo? Mine was on my shoulder.....If it would have been my first one, it would have been my last!!!!

I have three and I'm planning two and a half more. My first was a tiny little flower on my back then a couple of years later I built that one up and added an elf sitting on a toadstool. Everyone thinks she's a faerie so I've been planning to add wings for a few years I just can't get them the way I want them. That would be the half of the two and a half more that I want. Then I got a Celtic knot laced with my Scorpio rune (the M with the arrow off the right side) between my shoulders. That's the most visible of the three. Probably the most painful was the above on my right hip. None of them hurt terribly but there are a lot of nerves in the hip area so that was probably the worst of them all. It is complicated.... LOL It's two rabbits (modeled after the AFI decemberunderground bunnies) - one white and one black. In many old cultures and religions rabbits have a lot of meaning. In Mexican folklore, when a woman sees a pure white rabbit it is a sign that she has met her soul mate. In another culture, a black rabbit is a symbol of lies and things left unsaid. The white rabbit is jumping over a Pieces rune (the one that kind of looks like an H) and the black one is laying in front of it. The whole thing is about my ex-fiance (who is a text book Pieces) and the tumultuous way our engagement ended. Underneath, I translated "Through our bleeding we are one." into Gaelic to mean that we all hurt and those of us who survive the pain have a common bond. It's all about closure. *takes a deep breath* The two that I want are for my sorority and for another band that has meant a great deal to my life and helped me through a lot of the sadness and pain. I don't know what I want for my sorority tattoo.... something around ladybugs, stars, Narcissus flowers or a Phoenix. The band tattoo, for Kill Hannah, is probably going to be their sniper heart logo and a musical staff with the vocal line of the chorus of a song that says it all: "It was the songs that saved my life."

I have four tattoos. I am working on a back piece but have no idea when it will be finished. It is a big work in progress. I use big events in my life to put the next piece on. I just had my second son and need to get something to represent him. His name is Wylder and I need to figure out what represents him.

I have one tattoo: on my lower hip that is the symbol for peace in chinese. I've had it for about 15 yrs. The fact that it's where no one can see it [unless I want them too] helps in the regret territory...and no I won't get another one.

I have two tattoos. A blue butterfly on my back and a raven looking at a unicorn on my lower abdomen. Neither of them hurt very much, but the one on my lower abdomen hurt more than the one on my back. (Although the one on my abdomen was done after the one on my shoulder, so it may just be because it's the more recent in my memory). I'm going to get two more tattoos eventually, when I have the money to spend.

I have about 46 tattoos now, yes you read correct 46. But my husband is a tattoo artist and he can tattoo me all the time. I started with just a few small ones, but I must be honest and say that I think it is really addictive to get tattoos. And my most painfull one was the one on my lower back and the one on my foot. But you know what they say: No Pain, No gain.

I have two tattoos and I'd like to get a couple more. My first one was on the back of my neck and it hurt really bad. I had to lean my head forward while he was doing it and my neck bone stuck out so it was like he was tattooing my bone. It was really sore. My second was is on the inside of my forearm. That one didn't hurt at all. It didn't even feel like he was doing anything.

I have 4 - two I got just this summer. My fist is the planet Saturn (on my boob), my second is a Killer Whale on my thigh, the 3rd was the Dove in the American Flag colors on my back to the side a bit, and the last one is a candle flame on my ankle (me and my 2 sisters all got the same one at the same time). My next one will either be the pink ribbon or green m&m... Not sure where yet. The most painful was the dove - that HURT!
