    Default Finishing my tattoo way before I really wanted to...

    So, last fall, I got a tattoo of my childhood dog's paw print. He's been kind of sick, and he means so much to me that I wanted to go ahead and do it. I told myself that when he died, I'd get the color of the his collar that I bought him as a sort of "glow" (for lack of better words) around the paw print. Anyways, he has cancer and may be put down tomorrow. I'll probably finish my tattoo once I have a break in school. I was just wondering if it is even possible for the color to be added around it. I really don't care if it'll fade or need to be touched up a lot.

    It is always possible to add colour around a tattoo, however, how successful it is depends on the type of tattoo. I'm just wondering, though, who is going to do this for you? You say you're in school, are you over 18? I presume that you're not in the UK, but what age do you have to be to get a tattoo? Not trying to be mean here, but if you're not old enough to get it done legally then I would wait until you are to make sure that you get it done by a professional who will do a good job. You don't want to end up with someone ruining something that you want to use as a reminder of your pet. :(

    I'm sure they can do a colour on the outside, I'm so sorry to hear about your dog though, how sad.

    The whole "school" thing confuses us in the UK haha, kids go to school from 4-16 after that it's college then university so it confuses us

    Ah. In the US college and university are synonyms. I'm guessing that the US's community college is similar to the UK's college.

    Ah that sorts that out then lol! Yes colour round it is definitely possible. I'm sorry about your dog... :( but it sounds like a lovely way to commemorate how much he meant to you.
