Ehh, cocoa butter doesn't always help, especially not if it's in your genes to get bad stretch marks. My mom used cocoa butter from day one and she has some of the worst stretch marks I've ever seen, and I know I'll end up like her if I have a kid. I have stretch marks just from growing! :-?
Back to the tattoo topic, if you go with your friend for her to get one done, you'll DEFINITELY want one. I have a small one on my ankle and plans for like 3 more when I get the money. WARNING: they are addictive!

Comfrey in small doses can also be used to heal a tattoo.

Actually, if you add Lavender or another herb that reduces scaring, the cocoa butter will work better. Lavender is good for any kind of scar, be it a burn, cut or stretch marks. I'm sure there are other herbs that also help the skin stay supple, but I can't think of any.

support system is a MUST when getting a tattoo. I got one on my sternum just above my bra line and below the joining of my breasts...and I needed my sisters to keep me from screaming.

I would post the sketch I used here, but unfortunately, I don't have it on my website.

Vitamin E Gel is good for scars and stretch marks.

Kystar (and everyone else): Next time you get a burn, put lavender essential oil directly on it as quickly as possible. The pain goes away almost immediately and stops blistering and heals it quickly and for the most part leaves no scar. VERY good. Another one of my best friends ;)

NEVER SCRATCH, they get scared and infected.

SLAP THEM! like a bad kid, a good wack with the flat of the hand works wonders. I have 20? 21? tatoos now, and it's worked for every one.

Geez, i really wanted a tatoo but i have no money and plus, i have a conscience that is on OVERDRIVE!!!

i would probably spend a full year thinking where to put it, what to put, how would i hide it, would i get a job...?

infuriating...

as for the original topic (topic? who needs a topic? :-D :lol: ) i strongly believe what most of you already said: i think that heaven is not one set place or even one function. i believe that whatever YOU think heaven, hell, the Summerlands, or whatever is, that is how it will appear to you when you die.

or something along those lines... [-o<

I've actually noticed that if the tattoos are tasteful, even if they can't be fully concealed, a lot of employers will ignore them.

I knew a girl who had a bracelet of roses on her right wrist, and never had problems getting a job...she was the receptionist for a dentist's office.

We had a lad in Scotland who had had his entire face done in blue paisley pattern. That I can understand stopping you getting a job. It is pure irresponsibility. I would not want such in my works. If I had one, that is.

But any where else, I just do NOT see the problem.

As mine are all Wiking/Keltic, I describe them as "religious tribal markings".
And if they have mentioned them follow up with "Or does your firm always descriminate on Cutural/racial grounds?"

By this point you have obviously lost the job, so you can say what you like. :-D

I would really love to get a tribal tattoo, not with a tattooist's needle, but with the nail and the stick and the ink.
That would be one heck of an initiation, and I think that's the only way I would get a tattoo: As an initiation, a marking of a very incredible time.

Still would like the raven holding the sun, though :-D if I could find an appopriate time for it to mark!

uh, heaven, um..... ohhhhh, that place I call the meadow, yeah, you don't stay there long, just a short rest and then back you go, out to learn new lessons or the same ones you didn't get before.

On to the greatness of tattoos!! I only have one right now :-( but I have 5 more planned. The 5 are a set of bands, it's really simple, just 3 solid 3/4 a centimeter bands on my left upper arm, neck, right wrist, right thigh, and left ankle. The one on my right shoulder blade is a stylized unicorn. Mine didn't itch very much, only right before bed, and the buddy system is the best way to go!! Other half and I went to get ours done the same time and took care of each others tat :smt057 , he had his between his shoulder blades. Haha I know a tattoo artist, so I can get ours done at half price and a case of beer!! The only down side is that he's gone half the year, he doesn't stay home much. But yay for self expression!!!

Wow Ragnar, 21 tats?!?!? COOL!!!!! That's a lot of time in the chair, how long?
Maybe now you're starting to understand that while I may have been born predispositioned to be pretty batty, my parents saw to it that it was a certainty and completely unavoidable. -Me

so sorry. did not mean to belittle tatoos...
my older twin sisters got their first tatoos on the day they turned 18. pretty cool, huh? they both got a tatoo that said "mom" on it, but the got it done different ways. one had it on a ribbon in a heart, the other had cursive writing.

as for me, i think i'll know when the time is right. i know it's gonna be small cuz i feel the need to scratch over EVERYTHING so, yeah.

must go

Tats aren't a biggie... just make sure of a couple things:

1) You really like it and are willing to live with it forever.

2) The artist does good work

3) If you plan on working in a professional environment, that it can be covered by "business attire".

I have 2, both of which will be touched up in the next year and am planning on a few more. Mine can all be covered by business clothing and, with that in mind, it hasn't stopped me from becoming an executive at 2 corporations.
