Soooo awesommee 0_0 I tip my hat to you lol. Silly question, do you ever get odd looks from people if they see it? For some reason I can imagine small children thinking your an actual Death Eater >.<. I'm planning on getting Harry Potter themed tat as well, but something smaller like the Deathly Hallows symbol.
Firstly, let me tell you that I have a very big fear of needles.
And secondly, no, it didn't hurt too bad xD There were some spots where it STUNG like a bitch but you get used to it quickly. (It helps if your tattoo artist is gentle LOL)
A lot of people compare it to being stung by a bee or something, but I've never been stung by anything other than a jellyfish.
It's kind of like...well, it might sound awkward, but it feels like kitten scratches. You know how when kittens are so little they can't retract their claws, so THEY CLAW EVERYTHING? It's that type of stinging sensation, over and over again.
Doing the design in short bursts helps too. Do a bit, then wipe it off, do a bit more, wipe, and so on.
I'm getting a snitch next ;D
The Dark Mark set me back about $125, but different artist will do it for different prices. (Probably more. The original quote I got a few months ago was around $125-$175)
Haha. That's probably the best pain-description I've gotten so far. Alright. Doesn't sound too expensive. I'd rather pay a bit more and get a really awesome tattoo than going with a cheaper price and not as awesome artist. XD I've seen a lot of nice snitch-designs, so I'll probably go with one of those. Not sure where I want to put it though. I was thinking either the back of my neck or somewhere on my arm. Ah, well. It'll all depend on what kind of design I'll go with I reckon.
Yeah I want to make my own design too...err...or pay someone to do it, haha, since I can't draw at all. But yes. It feels more personalized when it's your own design. (I'm also tempted to get a Hippogriff or a dementor on my arm.) Aaaah so many ideas. lol.
