Anyone have a Havanese or Dog inspired tattoo?

I know this thread/question is sort of weird, but I've been watching Miami Ink and New York Ink on Netflix the last few weeks and was really surprised at how many people tattoo their pets, either in memory..or just to show love to a current companion.

I know Laurie has a most beautiful Havanese tattoo (maybe she'll be a doll and share a pic here )

Anyone else out of curiosity ?

Thank you for starting this Kara. I have thought about it (a tiny little Piper face) especially after seeing Laurie's. I would love to see anybody else that may have one too!

I love looking at Tats, love the TV programs and the stories that come with the tatoos.

I confess I have thought about it. I already have two tatts, both flowers, one is my chinese name, an orchid, another a bud rose. I only got the orchid, b/c I needed to re-ink the rose, and he wouldn't do it unless he put his mark on me, good thing I like the orchid.

it's hard with portraits, it's a very specific skill, a speciality. and it's expensive... hurts like a mofo.

I am trying to find the picture, but it must be on an old disc - my tattoo of Lily is a portrait - straight from a picture. It was very painful I will keep looking.

Your tattoo is beautiful and I am one of those people who said "I would never get a tattoo", but the older I get, the more intriqued I am..when my grandmother passed away 5 years ago, I entertained the idea of getting a Bird of Paradise flower w/ a hummingbird, because that has a special meaning between just her and I..

And then, I saw Laurie's and said "I'd totally do that"! People would then put me in an elevated 'crazy dog lady' status (no offense, Laurie! lol) but Tattoos sort of catipult you into the 'upper tier' of CDL's..

Ok. I gotta see Laurie's! Or is that too personal? If you feel like sharing Laurie, I am intrigued for sure!

It's just that several of you have mentioned the "pain" word, and that always stops me. If a tatoo is a requirement of showing my love, I will do it though!!! P.S. count me in with the people who are disgruntled about the new icon situation, what's up with that. It was not broke, should not have fixed it, IMO. Oh well, I still love ya.

tattoo pain: I explain to my non-tatted friends- like a bee sting. over and over again.

You pain receptors get tired of firing, after awhile, and your endorphins kick in, so it gets better about 20 minutes into the tattoo. but after the first 2 minutes, I'm always trying to get out of the chair and leave. certain places on the body hurt more and hurt less. and the post tattoo care ain't fun, it feels like a bad sunburn for a week.

I'm no wuss. I snapped a finger, during snowboarding, 1 1/4 inch oblique break and didn't shed a tear. also had a huge mass pushing on my bladder (didn't know) and I had acute renal failure, and that hurt 20x more than a tattoo (trying to pee but can't, not a drop after 24 hours of no peeing).

FancyNancy- not too personal at all - it just took me a while to find the picture that I had taken of it. Here it is....

This was done by a "portrait" tattoo artist straight from a picture of Lily
