Nice reward I reckon grug...but then where tattoos are concerned I'm a tad biased. :D

Think of it this way if you lose 8kgs there will be less area to tattoo so it might cost less. LOL

Just make sure you choose a reputable tattoo artist and if you feel even slightly uncomfortable don't do it!

That sounds like an awesome reward. I love tattoos and piercings. Be careful with getting a lower back tattoo (aka in the tattooing world) though some of the pigments they use can be poisonous if the get into the deeper layers of the skin, so if you are planning on having kids one day it could mean that you can't have an epidural.

Hmm...I've never heard of this before and I have fairly extensive tattooing that completely covers my lower back not to mention the rest of my back. I had a large cyst removed late 2005 and my options for painkillers were an epidural or the intravenous morphein drip (can't remember the actual name of it) and no one gave a fig I had a tattoo I just didn't like the thought of a long needle going near my spine so I opted for the drip thingy. Anyway I did a little looking through some of the medical orgs online and found that there is no conclusive evidence that tattoos cause problems for epidurals....of course the best thing to do is seek medical advice if you are really concerned Grug.

That sounds like a great plan!! I got 3 tattoos for my 18th birthday! I got my first one when I was 15, along with getting my tongue pierced at 15 also. I reckon I'll get another one when I get to my goal weight, I love them!!
