Labia tattoo

O.K. this may sound really weird/sick but I'm interested in getting a tattoo on each of my labia minora. My husband is going to be out of town for a couple of weeks and I thought that would be a perfect time to do it (give him a little surprise when he comes home!). Anyway, I've had a couple large diamond studs in each lip for about five years and I've been interested in adding the tattoos. I've never had a tattoo but I have very large lips so I think there should be enough area to do a tattoo. Has anyone done this? Where would you go for such an intimate tattoo?

Any tattoo shop should be able to accomodate you, but I would shop around and find some one with some experience. Ask to see pictures of other labia tattoos (tattoo shops should be able to show you photo albums with pictures of their work when it was done) and ask about the experience with fine line work. Not every tattoo artist can do the super fine work that would be required for that area, and you don't want the lines to "fatten" over time (unless your design can "absorb" it--like a tribal).

I haven't done this specific area, but I have plenty of other tattoos. =)

Thanks for your help. I didn't think that this would be too common a request, but I thought I'd give it a try on the taboo board. Is there really no one out there that has had this done...I'm definetely feeling a little weird! Anyway, I'm going to check around for some reputable artists to see what they can do. I would definetely prefer a woman if possible.

I'm afraid I can't help you locate a place to get the tattoo but that sounds soooo cool! If I had that done, along with those diamond studs, I think I would be looking for ways to show it all off in public - maybe wearing micro minis with no undies....LOL. Perhaps you will start a new fashion trend! Let us know if you get it done.

Well, I'm planning on getting it done next week so I'll let you know how it goes. I am at the gym every day so I will have plenty of opportunity to "flash" my new look!

I wasn't thinking about showing it off in a gymn with just a bunch of other women - I was thinking more like at a nude beach or resort, or, even better, at a party, where guys could appreciate it, too!

What kind of artwork are you planning to get. I have my inner labia pierced as well - captive ball rings-, and I'm planning on getting a tattoo - but not on my inner labia. Just curious what kind of design you are thinking of. Good luck!

Yes that would be an excellent place to let people see the tat and what a great conversational piece.

I do hope you shave/wax the whole pube area so the tat can be seen and appreciated more?

Well, I had the tattoo done today! As I said before, I have very large inner lips (hang down about 2 inches) and hardly any outer lips. I love butterflies so I decided to make my entire inner labia a life-size tatoo of a large Monarch butterfly. I'll try to explain, the head of the butterfly is at the front of my lips. Each wing is a lip. The outside of the lips are done in a deep orange with broad black lines and the lips edged in black with white dots (see a photo of a Monarch). The inside of each lip starts the same way then fades out as it gets closer to my vagina. Two of the diamond studs that I have are the eyes of the butterfly. The other two diamond studs are at the very tips of each wing (lip). It looks really cool, exactly as if a butterfly landed. I have been shaved clean for years and you can't miss my lips so you get a very nice view of it. Right now my lips are rather swollen which has added another inch or so (like when I'm aroused) and the effect is really quite beautiful. Thanks for all your advice!
