Oh yeah, I love it now! What sucked for me was it's on my forearm so not that easy to put out of mind or keep from prying eyes until I had it look the way I wanted. But, even though it wasn't an ideal experience when getting your first tattoo, the story that goes with it now adds so much to it and what it means for me.
Souly, your tattoo is gonna be fine. You know what you're in for as far as care, and while it might not have been the most ideal planning, it's not like you're going to some desolate place that doesn't have any showers or shade. It's not like you're gonna be camping in district nine. Besides, I'm not one to talk much about planning when my tattoo was the end result of a 3 day bender in Vegas.
So where'd you get it?

It depends on where it is and if she's really good at taking care of it, keeping it out of the sun etc. It'll probably be fine.
Personally though, I wouldn't want to be spending my weekend constantly distracted by caring for a new tattoo. And as someone who's had a disaster story with a tattoo before (allergic to the ink, body rejected it), there's nothing worse than having to go through the process of fixing it later 'cause it never healed properly. And the weeks or months of waiting til you can have it fixed, being stuck with something on your body that you're not proud of sucks. Everyone wants to show off a new tattoo, not hide it.
If the set time predictions are even close to being right, I'm going to be missing most of SHM for The Rapture. But I'll for sure be checking them out for at least a bit 'cause there's no way that won't be one of the biggest parties of the whole weekend!
The presale code I got from the peak radio station says that earlybird tickets are only $109. I haven't tried using it yet, but if there's a chance to save more, I'm gonna give it a try over the other codes.
Code = "peak"

I bought this on cassette one summer when I was like 9 years old. It was right after I watched 'Rattle & Hum' for the first time. I have since purchased it three more times in different audio formats.
This album remains one of my few perfect albums. I remember I "acquired" my copy when I was about 8 or 9, when I liberated it from my mom's boyfriend's car. When he found out I had taken it, the very next day he went and bought a copy just for me so I could listen to it anytime.
At my school, anybody who was anybody bought this album. I have been known to bust out 'Ice Ice Baby' at karaoke from time to time. (see my facebook for further evidence)
I remember when I was in grade one, an older girl at my daycare (I think she was in grade three) told me a story about how the whole class had randomly busted out in Ice, Ice Baby during their math lesson. I was so jealous. And totally thought she was super cool and badass.
I love this thread so much right now. It's amazing how many of us bought Appetite for Destruction or Dookie as one of our first albums. And I think I've owned at least 2 albums off each persons list at some point. This is a fantastic trip down nostalgia lane.
