As for the wrist tattoo, since you're looking for something that's more subtle, white would be the way to go. I've seen some pretty white ones when they are done professionally. Good luck!

P.S. Although I'm not that into the meaning, I love Lindsay's 'Breathe' tattoo too!
make-ups a great idea! I hadn't considered that whatsoever. Does it hide it well?

It's hides it quite well, especially if your tattoo doesn't have a lot of black (i.e. just a thin black outline, rest if colour). I got away with it the whole of last summer where I wore a skirt almost every day and on the last day of my internship I asked my collegue if he ever noticed my tattoo. He looked at me and said "what? you have mods?!?! where??"

there are a few brands that you can buy online and they cost around USD30 or so...the brand I use is Colortration. I found the site online and it comes in a lot of shades. It's waterproof (comes off with soap), smudge proof and dries quickly (it's a little thick so layer it on instead of caking it on). Hope that helps!

actually i always thought the "scar look" is why most people who got white ink wanted it in the first place...that's why i'm leaning towards it. to each their own i guess.

i do tattoo!

i have one big on on my back, which i decided to get done in 1997, but only got it done this year! i have learnt chinese since 97, and ive just become a qualified chinese interpreter... the characters are 'rui qiu', which is my name.. and means 'auspicious autumn'.

i also have stars on my ankle, and nape of my neck, and a butterfly on my back.

i am planning my next tattoo, which will be a symmetrical V shape, joining my two hipbones. a swallow on each hip, joined by japanese cherry blossom twigs (all in colour)

That's a cool idea since the cello, violin and viola all follow the same curves as a woman's body!

Definitely want to see how that one comes out!

I have three, two kanjii symbols on my lower back. one means "eternal" & the other "grace" (in memory of my mother, her middle name is grace) I also have a chinese dragon on my lower stomach (regret that one!) i'd like to get a celtic cross on the back of my neck.

^^ i'm curious...does it hurt more to get wrist tattoos?

my previous tattoos didn't hurt that much, but the wrist is such a sensitive spot, i figured it might sting more. any feedback would be much appreciated!

I have a tattoo of a rose on my thigh. I really want another one, but I dont know where I want it. I dont want it too big either. But I do remember how much it hurt, so maybe not.

That is the only Tattoo I have so I don't have anything to compare it to, sorry. It hurt less than I was expecting, anyhow, but then again I have a high pain tolerance.

I have a tattoo on each wrist....my right has a pink cherry blossom and my left is an ambigram. It hurt on the wrist but I don't think it hurt any more than any of my others (I have my kids' names on my hip and a killer whale on my shoulder).
