I have a little one on my left top of arm (just a one inch celtic symbol). I had it done when I was 18, and got my nose pierced around the same time. Still have both, and no I'm not a punker gal ;) H2B has actually started to consider getting one (small one), and at his stage in life! To me that's akin to starting smoking in college :lol:

Oh God, he actually thinks he's going to get Yoda on his back, a la luke skywalker. Oh dear.

have one sunbeam its of a black panther and i wish i never got it i really regret it i got it when i was 16 and rebelous ....i would say if you getting it get one in a place where u can cover easily like top of hip bone. friend of mine got a lovely heart with some ivy there at time boy was i kicking myself that i didnt get one there. that said i did get it on the top of my back side so i could hide it from my parents i just wish i had got something else if you go for it pick something timeless like a heart or star.....

I would love to get a tattoo just a small one on my hip bone like what december bride suggested. I still haven't decided what I want to get one of yet - I want to get something unusual not the usual heart, star etc. Does anybody know of a place in Dublin? I'm extremely paranoid about the hygiene with all the diseases going around, it there anything I should look out for when I go into a tattoo parlour?

I have two - i got my first one when i was 16 (In the Mint just off Henry Street), its a kind of cartoon character puppy dog on my hip bone, and then i got one on the base of my back of a chinese symbol which means Courage or bravery (i got my friend from Hong Kong to check that it didn't mean Fried Rice or something !!), i got that one done in the Dragon just off Parnell Street.
