I am too old for a tatoo.

You are never too old for a tattoo Handsarmstrong. When I can afford it I may get a NF one made up.

If and when I go back to tattoing, I would GLADLY donate my services to tattoo blue ribbons on people for free. Better still, if I can ever get the money together for my own shop, I would like to set up an awareness program wherefriends, families and people with NF can get ribbons and donate the money to research. Either charge like a small donation fee for the tattoo and donate the money or find a sponsor who will pledge a certain ammount per tatt.

I still do a little work at home on freinds and establihsed customers, but my days of workin to make someone else rich are over. If anyone is in the Saratoga NY area, geta hold of me and when I'm either back at a shop here or open my own, you will be first on my list.

Cyndie- I LOVE your tattoo! The juxtaposition is awesome.

Handarmstrong- Capricorn is right your never too old. Actually the older you are when you get one, the better it will still look, when you actually are old.
Based on the copious amounts of of bad tattoos out there one can maybe be too young ;o)

I saw a video of a girl with nf1. Her partner got little butterflies and flowers on her body wherever her bumps were to match the nf1 tumors. That's commitment!
One has the lumps and bumps..the other got the tatts to show support...and delt with some temporary pain but has a reminder for life. Just like us.

ITS GREEN BUT SOME PEOPLE SAY BLUE

Weird... every site I have seen showed a blue ribbon, including this site. But I always thought that blue was already taken... whatever the color, the offer stands.
