    You know Bill, I love the ink! I've been thinking of getting something while on the island, but I can't bear the thought of not being able to hit the water after it's done...

    walt..i have a small kitty tat on my forearm..small 2".
    since i am always in the pool and teach swimming i had to be certain that the tat would be ok.
    so for a small tattoo what i was told and did was for the first 2 weeks when going in the pool or ocean:

    before swimming coat the tat with A&D ointment (baby bum cream)
    cover with a waterproof bandaid making sure that the adhesive is not on A&D ointment.
    as soon as you get out of the water, remove the band aid and gently wipe the ointment off.

    this can only be done with a small tatto, that fits under a waterproof bandaid.

    bill's is way too big to have done this waterproof band aid fix.

    my next one will be on my wrist ...a divi tree....small.

    I got a tattoo on my thigh the day before I flew back from Scotland. Not a good idea before a long flight, but it was my thigh and I should have thought it through...

    I also have one on my thigh. It was a mistake when I was 18. Glad I picked there because I hate it now, so most of the time it stays covered. I definitely want something that shows my love of the sea, but just haven't found the right thing yet.

    I have a sunflower braid on my inside forearm , a sunburst on my right upper arm and a Van Gogh sunflower on my left shoulder ...... each to commemorate my daughter's or two niece's 18th birthdays..... they picked 'em and we got matching...... A fitting gift for 'coming of age'....!
