Thread: tattoo

    tattoo

    I'm a c5/c6 quad and I was thinking about getting a tattoo, I was wondering if it would effect me differently than before I was injured or what precautions to take.
    sometimes life is hard, but the alternative is unacceptable.

    Take a look at my profile pic.I'm c5/6 as well.Get it in a place with gooed blood flow and take care of it while it heals.I got all of mine after my injury with no problems.

    I just got my first one this last Monday on my upper arm. A c5/6 and I get the needlework where I can feel it. Go figure.

    Actually, it didn't hurt that much. Less than a traditional needle stick more than a pinch.

    Make sure you spend A LOT of time deciding exactly what you want. It's going to be there a looong time. Search the web for 'first tattoo' to get a lot of good tips.
    Cheers,

    i got mine on my hip scar. it made me randomly pee for a few weeks till it healed up.

    i found my tattoo and i held onto it for about 6 months before i got it. i knew it was the tattoo i really wanted because every time i looked at it, i wasn't sick of it. i'm still not and i've had it since april.
