A local tattoo shop did a promotion in honor of the San Diego Chargers, where they gave out free Charger bolt tattoos. I went down there, waited for 8 hours in the cold weather (I thought it would get warmer so I didn't bring any layers), but it was worth it. I got a Charger bolt that's about 3 inches long, powder blue with a yellow outline. That's the story of my first tattoo. Tell me yours.

I got my tattoo when I was 13 yrs. old. my girl-friend did it. we were talking over her mother's house. I she said, lets put tatoos on each other, I told her to put my tatoo on my ankle, it's still there, Oscar my child-hood sweet-heart, I never seen him in over 30yrs. I don't know if he's still living or not.

i don't have a tattoo, but my cousin just had hers. it wasn't done by a professional, however, and when she woke up the following day, she was bloating all over. she must have an allergic reaction or whatever. she was seen by a doctor, and she had to have an anti-tetanus shot. have you heard of stories similar to this?

My first tattoo...I was sitting in my apartment with my best friend and boyfriend. I said I wanted to get a tattoo and suggested we go price places, well we got to the one place: Stay Gold, and the guy was sweet and I just got it. While he was tattooing me he was listening and watching "Walk The Line" he was somewhat dancing too. But he was sweet and did a wonderful job on my tattoo.

I do not have an tattoos right now but am considering one and probably have one like yours but my team is the Eagles. Even though they lost last night, they are my team and would consider doing it. Good luck to your team today and hope they win. I am tired of New England winning all the time. LOL I bet that your tattoo is sharp and wish they would give free tattoos here. My sister has a tattoo on her hand of a leaf. My only previous tattoos were the wash off kind.

My first tattoo was a design that I had created. It was something I kept drawing over and over in class. I didn't mind getting it, I was afraid it would hurt but it didn't. I am glad i got it and experienced something I didn't think I would do.

I hate you!!! I wanted to go also but I didn't want to wait so long in line. I have a 1month old baby and I can't be leaving her for hours. Your lucky though! If I was going to get one I would of got it on the inside of one of my ankles! SO then I can get a SD on the other side! So maybe sometime I'll get it! Hope the Chargers win the score is 3-0 NE right now! GO BOLTS!

For weeks I kept drawing a design while I was in my night class. I finally decided one night to get that tattooed on my lower back. Its hard to describe but I love how it looks still even 5 or 6 years later.

My first tattoo was a spontaneous act, a birthday gift from a longtime friend. We were out and about one day, girl stuff, and wandered into a tattoo shop just for kicks. As we discussed what we would never get permanetly on our bodies I stated that I would get a tattoo of Texas if we found one (which was unlikely, since we were in the state of Missouri). One of the artists there overheard me and said he would do it if I would design it. In a few minutes I had designed a tattoo for myself which he placed on my upper right thigh...and at a discounted price since I was the designer and let him keep the design.
