I've been planning to get a tatoo for a while. In fact, I've been planning it out rather carefullly. Given the, erm, persistent nature of the operation, it's not the kind of thing one ought to do too lightly.
So I've interrogated all the people I know that have tatoos, gathered their experiences, located what appears to be considered as the best tatoo shop around, looked into allergies and prices, asked if it was a problem to have one over the large burn scar I have on my upper left arm from the time when I burnt a girl's name into it when I was younger and a lot more stupid, and various other elements of importance. In short, I'm only missing one slight detail.
