I think there is one in Far East Plaza. Probably one of the more well known ones "Johnny Two-Thumbs" I think. There is also one in the Queesnway Shopping Centre that specializes in Sports Shoes near IKEA at Alexandria Road.

I don't have any tattoos so I cannot help you on the massive pain you will feel or the high risk of infection that comes with it, or the even higher cost of laser removal in a few years after you find out that it was a really bad, bad choice. Hopefully someone else can give you those details. Henna is better as you can change your mind and designs more often! :wink:

Millions do it, so the pain can't be that bad! However for a feml, I wouldn't recommend it! I had my first at 13 and the rest before i was 21, by the time i had completed my business studies in my late 30's I was regretting the fact, that I had to cover my arms up at meetings in Asia, becuase of the stigma of tattoo's.

Although it is quite fashionable for women these days, I wouldn't recommend it, quite the opposite! Stick to the stickers and be happy, that you can always wash them off!

You went to the doctor for some other problem but by the time you finished looking at her "cardigan" you had to be treated for High Blood Pressure eh?

:cool: Got one in anyway! :P

Had you seen the size of her blood pressure would have been the least of your worries - suffocation being more of a risk I would say. :D :D

chixchix,

Try getting some of those sticker tattoos. They come in different colorful designs. Once applied on the skin, they look so authentic. But what's good is that you can just wipe them away with oil and they'll come off easily.

4 years ago, I decided to get a tattoo. Not exactly a teenage fantasy or even a mid life crisis. I just wanted something to symbolise my heritage. So I went to Far East Plaza and checked out a place called Rebirth. My buddy eddie who has a few tat's and piercings recommended and came along for negotiation and moral support. I had already chosen OM in sanskrit as my tattoo. And it is on my upper right arm. The dude was chinese but he created the OM (a fairly large size trace image) on my arm and adjusted the position in such a way that it does not matter how I move my arm, the symbol would be in symmetry with the arm. Genius! :-) 45 minutes it took and it was like a 50-100 ants biting me at the same time. Arm is tough so the pain was not that intense. Its the post tattoo that you have to be careful. You bleed as tattoo needle actually break skin. So anti-septic, septic gauze to cover the area, and STRICTLY not to let a drop of water to fall on it. Because if it smudges, you are f***ed and you have to laser to remove the ugly smudge. The wound will take 2 weeks to heal and by then you will have dead skin falling off. So while taking a shower, you must be extra careful. Also, not to let sunlight fall on the tattoo and definitely no swimming. Once you endure this for 2 weeks, the tattoo becomes set and it will be nicely visible when you hit the beaches. :-) Its hidden so I dont have to worry about any work related issues. Its not a obscene image and so when I go to an Indian temple I can take off my shirt without having to be embarrased about it.

Good luck. Hope you don't regret it later although I know you will.
