Default I <3 My tatts!

Here are pictures of the two I have. I want more (they are addicting!) I think the next one will be on my shoulder.

The first one (one my foot) is of a dove with an olive branch. I wouldn't recommend the placement though. It hurt a lot more then the one on my back and I bled a lot. I think it's right above a vein. Oh and pardon the dryness of my feet. I need to be better about putting lotion on them.

The second picture is an artistic representation of St. Andrew's cross (on my lower back.) It's stretched a bit since I had to bend over a bit to take the picture. It's actually round and even on all sides. This was my first tattoo. I've had it for 10 years and color still looks great.

Are you going to show yours Paula?

I have a few!!

i love your dove, so beautiful!

i have this on my right inner forearm, its my own design, its my own respresentation of a charm bracelet.



i have this on my lower back, my most painful tattoo to date...



This was the first stage of my half sleeve, its my right upper arm.. and its inspired by old navy tattoos, sailor jerry etc and its really beautiful.. i love it and its a work in progress



here is the back of the arm:



and here is the picture from my recent session to begin colouring that sleeve



i love tattoos, im fascinated by them and the history behind them... i think of my body as a canvass and enjoy coming up with ideas about what i want to decorate myself with, i design all of my own and work closely with my artist who is a genius!

im a history student and im actually writing my final paper on the history of tattoos, tribes and the link to modern day society.

Oh oh ohoh!

I got my first tat on Friday and I'm SUPER excited about it. I already want another.

Here's he very bad photo of it ... the color is better now that the redness and swelling are going down. It's a blue stylized dragonfly behind my right ear.

Here's some really dry skin pictures of my current ink.

I've got plans on a sleeve and a back piece, but I currently live about 6 hours away from my guy and it's hard to get the break off school long enough to get anything substantial done.

The one of the koi is my little sister's first tattoo right after it was done about two weeks ago. She got it done on her ribs and it looks amazing now. I was definitely proud she got such a big piece done for her first, and she took it like a champ.

She also kept rolling her eyes at the girl in the next chair who kept squealing that she couldn't take the tiny star on her wrist and she was shaking from the pain (seriously, it was about the size of a dime).

I also have some words in hebrew on the insides of my wrists.

Good grief. I was a bit nervous going into mine cause everyone kept saying that the neck was a painful location ... but really getting a brazilian wax hurts more than this did. Maybe it was the adrenaline rush, but I didn't think it was that bad.

Wow, you all have amazing tattoos! I've been obsessed with them since quite a young girl though after several billion piercings I decided to leave them till I'm absolutely sure.

Paula, I really like your past, present and future tattoo, it's stunning

Ah what a thoughtful tattoo.. It's so nice when they have deep meanings behind them. Art is fantastic but when it has no meaning it seems so pointless..

I would absolutely love a sleeve like that, but full of Nintendo/Zelda characters, but I'm too paranoid about how it would affect work and such. I love all them type of tattoos with the swallows and such, gorgeous!

Here are mine, sorry they're small

First is the 3 stars (right ankle) the little one is me, the medium my Dad and the biggest my Mum (the little one didn't heal so well so I'm gonna get that touched up).
Second (back of the neck) is the symbol for nine in Elvish, me and my best friend got the same one because we both love LotR, and nine is my favourite number.
And last (left wrist) is my first tattoo which is the Triforce from The Legend of Zelda.

Thank you for listening

Oh, I understand about the work thing.

It sucks to have to wear trousers or opaque stockings or tights and never get to wear skirts because I can't show my tattoos on rotation. I've never been worried about the arms because we have the white coats, but try wearing girly shoes with a foot tattoo.
