considering how much ink i have, i suppose i should fill this one out...
gotten from ladymandrake, but lots more folks did it too...

1. Have you ever cried during a tattoo? No.

2. When did you get your first tattoo? 1997, at FSG

3. What was your first tattoo? The 9-bat Maya glyph on my left front shoulder

4. Which tattoo is closest to your heart? Locationally, probably one of the Chinese bat tattoos... emotionally, it's really hard to decide...

5. Do you have a matching tattoo with someone? Yes. monsteralice and I have the same standing Thoth design, done on the same day by the same artist...

6. Do you have a tattoo that someone messed up on? A couple of my older ones are a bit uneven, but not really messed up

7. Do you have anyone's name tattooed on you? No. I would be really hesitant to do that, too.

8. What one was the most painful? Probably my most recent one, the background piece on my left front shoulder/chest. Combination of time and some sensitive locations.

9. How many tattoos do you have? 29, by my count.

10. Do you plan on being heavily or moderately tattooed? Depends on your definition. Moderately, I suppose- I doubt I'll go much further down my arms or my chest, or very far down the legs.

11. Do you have a tattoo that you constantly have to explain? Many of them... the back-healing one in particular.

12. Have you ever gotten an infection from a tattoo? No.

13. Which one took the longest? I don't remember, I think they were all about the same amount of time, I go into altered states while I'm being tattooed, so I dunno

14. What is the biggest tattoo that you have and how long did it take? The background piece on my left front shoulder/chest, not sure of the time...

15. Did you tell your parents? Not yet.

16. Do you regret having gotten any of your tattoos? No. I take time working out designs, think about them, meditate on them, etc.

17. Would you consider ever getting any of your tattoos removed? No. Touched up or added to, but not even covered much less removed.

18. What are you going to get for your next tattoo? An old-school skull with top-hat for the Ghede.

19. Do you think members of the opposite / same sex with a lot of tattoos are hot? Depends on the ink design/execution/location and the person, but generally yes.

20. Are you unfortunate enough to have an arm band tattoo? What do you mean by "unfortunate"? I have one on either arm. Parts of them hurt, but I think they look cool (and look cool on others). One is now part of an integrated shoulder design, and the other is heading that way.

21. How many people have tattooed you? 7. I'm not likely to go to anyone but Gordon or Abe ever again, though.

22. Do any of your tattoos have color? Only the back-healing one, just a little. The skull also will. In both cases, this was dictated by outside influence- I prefer black/grey only because it wears better and works better for me- I tend to look on this as writing/drawing magick onto my body, so it makes sense...
