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).
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?
What is advil? is it a pain killer? 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.
You're quite welcome~ And I don't have any tattoos yet but plenty of reptiles haha. I have 5 cresties (not counting the 4 eggs heehee), 2 leopard geckos, 2 blue tounge skinks and 2 baby red tail boas~ I had a veiled chameleon but he passed away last week...I'm thinking about getting a panther chameleon but I'm not sure yet. And thank you! Yes I have learned a lot from my little guys. It really is rewarding when you find eggs~ I can't wait for them to hatch~
It sounds like you have quite a large reptile family. I have a large reptile/arachnid family too. I have 7 corn snakes, 1 texas rat snake, 17 crested geckos, and 9 tarantulas.
My condolences on the passing of your veiled chameleon.I am very excited for you with your unborn babies. Feel free to note me if you wish to ask me anything about care. I love talking about my geckos.
Oh wow sounds like you have your hands full! Not that I don't either haha...a blind cat followed my boyfriend to our doorstep last night and is now residing upstairs in our apartment haha. We are both suckers for animals in need. And yes, I will definitely keep you updated if you don't mind~ thank you for sharing the excitement haha. Right now I have the eggs in tupperware containers with perlite. Every few days I mist them with room temp water. They are in like a 70-72 degree temp.
That is so amazing that a blind cat followed your boyfriend home! It must have been fate that drew him to your home.
Be careful with misting the eggs-never mist them directly. I never mist mine unless the vermiculite feels dry to the touch. To test the perlite, just squeeze a small piece with your fingers. If it feels a little moist then it's fine for the eggs. Misting too much can drown the babies. Both perlite and vermiculite holds moisture amazingly well and rarely needs to be sprayed.
Good luck with your babies and the blind cat. I hope you didn't mind me giving you this advice.
