    Just tried one on and its sits a fair bit higher than my bra, only a little bit at the bottom and obviously the bit actually on my boob touches so may wait a few more days just to be sure

    Yeah, now i've seen the picture I get what you mean ! You might well be ok wearing a bra if it doesn't rub on the main part. Just see how it goes and how you find it. You can always wear one for an hour or so and change if it's not comfy.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    Had the itch for so long now, even though it was only back in June I last got tattooed :P. Super impatient to get my feet done, but I always said they wouldn't be for a few years yet. So either work on my ribs more next or alter my rose. Tempted to go for my rose but I want to sort the quote out to go with that.

    I'm a total nab when it comes to most body mods so will probably be seeking some of your advice over the next few weeks!

    I honestly know next-to-nothing about where to start looking for artists etc. All I know is I would love a dot-work piece on my shoulder. I have some ideas but would probably like a custom one based around some shapes/images I've found. Unfortunately I can't post pics until my post count's higher, but I might add some pics of my ideas later.

    I live in Somerset, but would happily travel for someone that's awesome with this style. My question is where the hell should I start looking??
    Google searching results in an information overload, and local artists seem pretty 50/50 from what I have seen. Some truly awesome pieces in their portfolios, then the odd picture where you just think wtf?!

    Anyone got any tips? Personal recommendations for dotwork?

    Thanks in advance! xXx
    If you can't find an artist near you then look further and further, only you can do the research and find someone you're happy with really.

    With it being specifically dot work though maybe you'll want to google artists that specialise in that type of work?

    I'd love a little owly tattoo somewhere on my body... I just can't decide where to get it... It can't be too visible because my dad would freak if he saw it O.O I'm only just talking him around to letting me get my nose pierced xD (thank God the septum is hide-able)

    My ribs are still peeling. Its been 2weeks since i got it now :(. I guess its because its more of a high movement area than my others which is why its taking longer.
    I wouldnt mind so much but its uncomfortable to wear certain clothes. And i miss my fake tan
