    My son is trying to talk me into getting a quilting tattoo. But they sound so painful and I'm such a weenie. I think I'm going to though, a really really small one!
    Love that machine but it looks too painful LOL

    I have a tattoo, not a quilting one. I got it about 10 yrs. ago. It wasn't painful, at least not much. Go ahead and get one if you want one. Just make sure it is a good, clean place.

    I have this (sort of) secret urge to get a tattoo... My DH and DS and DDIL would just die...DD would think it was cool. She hates needles so doesn't have one, but would be the one in the family to get one...

    A quilt tattoo... great idea!

    No I would not get a tattoo...of any kind! I can't wrap my brain around injecting a permanent dye into my skin. Besides, I work as a nurse in a nursing home, and let's just say... tatoo's don't age well!

    It seems to be a really generational thing on the whole.
    At age 55 I think tatoos are something not done by people MY age although there are always exceptions to that.
    I agree with the aging thing too...my Dad age 81 has one from the 1950's and it is faded and a saggy mess. LOL

    Never!! I've seen people with tatoos who are over the age of 65 and the tatoos look awful. Wrinkled and sagging. Not for me.

    While they are not for every one and I have seen many that were off putting to me, I do have one I had done over 12 years ago: special meaning to me and it is not placed "out for display"
    I would do another one but only for a very special reason, not just as art - not my thing - but I like this idea

    I would do a feather around my arm but I can't afford it. I got a three inch size tat 30 years ago and it cost $200. What would it cost today? Yikes

    It is an art form that people love or hate. I love them.

    Very nice machine you got!

    This from that wise old sage Maxine:

    "Do you realize that in about forty years, we'll have millions of old ladies running around with tattoos and pierced navels?" (Now that's scary!)

    I think she meant the tatoos were wrinkled and sagging.

    I won't get a tattoo, but if I can lose 35 lbs., I'll get my belly button pierced. :)
