This is a crested gecko tattoo I have on my left hip. This was also my most excruciatingly painful tattoo yet!

I got this done in 2005, in honor of my first breeding season.

Great tattoo! Was it from a picture of one of your cresties?

I used a picture from the big Rhacodactylus book plus a picture of Twilight, one of my first crested geckos. So this tattoo is a combination of both. It was also my most excruciatingly painful tattoo (right on the hip near the groin area).

It was worth the pain though. It came out beautiful.

Thank-you. This is one of my favorite tattoos. It was also my most excruciating! A few years ago a person who works in a tattoo parlor gave me Advil to take before they started work on another of my tattoos (a giant snake on my right leg)and it really worked! Now I don't go for a tattoo without taking Advil with me. Maybe that will help you?

:O What is advil? is it a pain killer? :XD: and im just afraid of needles really..i dont mind one in and then out and thats it, but when its going in multiple times it makes me all nervous. XD and i'd be panicing that they would get somthing wrong. They'd have to make sure they got every colour and line thickness perfectly to the drawing i give them. :XD:

Yes, Advil is a pain killer. I understand about phobias, apparently a lot of people are afraid of needles. I'm afraid of heights.

This is awesome, really makes me want some ink! Really exquisite tattoo. Is it based on one of your breeders?

Thank-you! This tattoo is really a combination of a picture from the Rhacodactylus book and a photo of one of my male crested gecko breeders, Twilight. This is my favorite tattoo.
