This is my first tattoo, it's a pincushion with needles sewing it back together. It represents my heart condition and how I've overcome obstacles despite it. Joe (at Skin Deep Tattoo & Cafe in Ocala, FL) helped me design it, inspired from this photo: http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c55/simplystaples/pinheartmod.jpg
It took about an hour and didn't hurt much at all, it mainly tickled. He used a shadow effect to make it more three-dimensional and used two different reds and a white to detail the inside.
