A girl I know had both palms done, she's in the Navy, harder than most men I know and covered in tattoos everywhere else.

She said it was the worst pain she'd experienced and she wouldn't go through with it if she'd known how much it hurt.

Plus a year later and they look like shit, just looks like a loads of black/blue faded lines and speckles.

What you gonna have done, Casper? 'Left' and 'Right'? 'High' and 'Five'? 'Sooty' and 'Sweep'?

Stuart Robson filmed Thomas Hooper and Oliver Peck tattooing each others palms, for his documentary, it's funy as fuck!

Trying hard not to let that video put me off!
Especially as the placement of Oliver Peckers is exactly where mine will be.

Getting either "Carpe Diem", "Live Life" or a map of Europe that i colour in when ive visited different countries but might be painful going back to get it all filled in what do you reckon though Burt?

Peck is notoriously bad at getting tattoo'd that's why he filmed it, I saw him get tattoo'd on Miami ink and he was the same.
I watched Hooper tattoo a guys palm at the London convention last year, he had him with his arm stretched out behind him with his and bent over a chair so he couldn't move, it looked painful guy looked like he didn't know weather to laugh or cry, think he did both Laughing out loud

Palms are just a fucking no no. How old are you, Casper (serious question)? Why aren't you happy with sticking with the perceived 'normal' places for tat's? The one you posted previously looks spot on, can you not continue the theme? What are your reasonings for wanting a palm tat?

I know I'm an older fuk'er but even if I were 20 years younger I'd still be able to quite clearly understand the drawbacks of having a tattoo on my hand(s) (other than the pain).

I'm 22 Burt and I agree with all that you have said, its just i found the perfect piece and am struggling to see where it would position correctly elsewhere and i am pretty heavily covered, given it some serious thought today and i don't have any visible tattoos below the cuff, above the collar etc. so would be the first although I am in a profession where my colleagues have visible tattoos its still something to think about because the regret could end up matching the pain! would look Cool Cool though

Russ i watched a few more online and every single one had the same reaction, can imagine that wolf was 10/10 pain looks like he has drilled it in especially the cigar end

There's loads of jobs you can do with a palm/neck tattoo; Footballer, rapper, tattooist, Tesco/Aldi nightshift worker.
As long as you never want to be treated like a normal adult then go for it Puzzled

Most tattooers won't do em or advise not doing them unless your virtually covered in ink or know them well. Hands, necks & faces the same I think. Stewart's is as usual really good but they end up being line drawings for most part, hard to do details.
Can't imagine the pain and they are gonna fade and deteriorate surely quite rapidly, a brave one but can't see the attraction apart from just being a bad ass mofo.

Each to their own tho, if you have the balls, time & inclination then fuck it, you only live once!

very nice piece casper, just put down deposit to start my back in November, sticking with modern traditional stuff. guys I've spoken to say palms and arse are by far the worse places, and the older and more you get the more painful it gets….

Such an awful representation of the UKs tattoo industry. Showing below average artists tattooing dog ashes into some bloke covered in thoughtless tribal Puzzled
