the pain factor was a 10? Seriously? You know that 10 is described by doctors as "the worst pain you've ever felt in your life" right? ....I truly pity somebody whose wrist tattoo was the worst pain they've ever felt. You must be very sheltered.
Oh yeah, and what they said - it's not a lotus. Not even close.
it is a Lotus srounded by some waves,more will be added latter.. I'm Buddhist an i wanted a blue Lotus on the inside of my wrist so i could see it while I meditate so I got one I got a white black light or UV ink because its invisible on my skin unless I'm under a black light and than its blue, and I wanted it to be blue and white, white symbolizes purity with ones self and blue represents victory of the spirit over the senses, and signifies the wisdom of knowledge and moving past and beyond troubled times and periods in ones life, and I've moved on from something really difficult for me.
