Thanks Rosie, the tips help alot, now I know what to do after, i was going to ask about tipping too, thanks for that, that's exactly what I was wanting to know. I want it on the inside of my wrist because 1) it's coverable by a bracelet when I need to (which i usually don't) and 2) it's something that i'll see constantly and be a constant reminder. It's a symbolic dragonfly made out of initials that I came up with. There's a tattooist here that I've seen some of his work and i've been very impressed so far, very neat and vibrant. And for the size, it'll only be about $60 which is doable for me lol.
My ear piercing is going to be harder to fix. I had double piercings in the bottom of both ears, the top of the two on one ear got ripped out a few years ago, split my ear. It healed nicely and isn't very noticeable, but I want to get the hole re-pierced so that when I wear something it hides it nicely. I'm nervous about finding someone to do it right.
