    I got it done on Friday the 2nd, but I havent had a good pic to post so I held off from anouncing it. I know how you guys are about pics of cool basses/ink/anything!

    My parents dont know yet. I got it done a couple days before they moved me into my dorm at UF and wore long sleves the whole time I was around them. Next time I visit them (on the 16th) Ill show them.

    Peace

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that its on my inner right forearm.

    I only hid it from them because they had enough to worry about seeing as they were leaving their diabetic son to live on his own for the first time. I decided that Id show it to them later after everything was well and they had relaxed a bit.

    Oh and if you are wondering why I didnt wait till I was out of the house, its because I wanted to go with a lifelong friend (14/18 years) who was only in town on vacation and is in the Navy. It would have been my only chance for the next 8 months.

    Peace

    Actually I drew that.

    I dont normally draw my bass cleffs like that when Im writing music (the rare times that I do) but I had been drawing it like that for over a year as an idea for a tattoo. My friends and I told each other that we would go together to get our tattoos done if we still wanted them a year from now. A year passed and a few of my friends got different tattoos from those they origionally planned on on their own so I decided to get this one done since my bets friend and I said we would go together next time he was off duty.

    Peace

    ahhhhh.....ok.....i see the reasoning behind your decision.....yeah, they were prolly stressed out enough.....you think they will flip about the tattoo?

  13. Stacey, chill girlfriend, you just joined today and you haven't earned the right to tell the oldtimers how life should be here at TB.

    Welcome!

    Nick, it's done well but I would have told my parents first, just my opinion though!

    They probably will. They dont tell me what they were like when they were young, but Ive heard from other family. They were a lot more free spirited before than they are now. Maybe Ill just remind them about that and they'll relax.

    I just realized that it looks a bit squashed in that pic.

    I actually went to one of the most well known places in Miami to have it done and I carefully drew it up (in full size, I had drawn it smaller thousands of times before) myself the night before so that I didnt have to worry about it being sloppy or cheap looking.

    Any tips?

    Peace

  17. You know Nick, I'm sure you talk via telephone with your parents now that you are at college, right?

    Mention to them that you are "considering "having it done and kinda feel them out, you know, see what they have to say, then find the right time and ease into telling them!

    Just a thought.......

    I wouldnt want to do that. Ive lied to my parents thousands of times but what I plan on soing is just showing up in Miami with a short sleve shirt and showing it to them.

    If they make a big deal about it over the phone I might be too scared. Besides, theyve seen a few of my friends tattoos so I know their general feelings towards them.

    Peace
