Do you have one? A couple? Several?
What are they?
Do they hold any sentimental value?
Do you want more?
PIP your tattoos, or your favorite one.
I have 3 tattoos.
Two are small and black ink. One is a shamrock on my hip. The other is a quote on my right foot with a heart beside it - it says "One step at a time". My third is bigger, but not huge or anything. It's a bird carrying an olive branch. It's black with some red, green, and white ink as well. I'ts my favorite.
The only one that holds any sentimental value is the bird.
I want one or two more. I have an idea for my next one - I want the EE Cummings quote from the poem, that says "I carry your heart with me, (I carry it in my heart)" with my wedding date and DD's date of birth underneath it. I think I want it on my right side, but want to lose some more weight before I get it.
Here's my favorite one:
Scout2005:I have three stars for my first three losses on my back. I want to add the last two and then put two elephants holding trunks under the stars to represent DD and DS.
Poppy I love your bird! I don't have any pictures but my favourite is a phoenix I have on my back, it's pretty similar.
I also have my maiden name and vine around my ankle and a dove tramp stamp. I want to get something symbolic of my daughter and my husband, something Hawaiian, but I haven't decided yet.
poppyseed1017:Do you have one? A couple? Several? I have one right now. Its a "tramp stamp" I got it when i was 18. What are they? It is a black butterfly with like a pink swirl on one side and a blue swirl on the other. I was 18 when i picked it out but i forget its there all the time.Do they hold any sentimental value? nah.Do you want more? yes i want DD's name and birthdate on me somewhere and possibly 2 more.PIP your tattoos, or your favorite one. no pics sorry:)

I have 1, tramp stamp style... I love that I did it
I helped design an icthus (Jesus fish) intertwined with a treble clef sign.
They represent my Christianity and my love of music.
Yes I plan to get one more (as of now) on my foot or ankle. It will be cherry blossoms (DH called me cherry blossom/CB when we were dating cause I wore that lotion all the time, it was sweet) and a cursive "e" for DS.
I don't even know if I have a pic. I forget it's there most of the time.
He's looking so grown up these days!!
One and it's the only one I'll ever have - not because it hurt, but because I only wanted one.
It does. I'm a planner. I hate surprises and unexpected happenings in my life. SO is the complete opposite and just goes with the flow. He has told me constantly, for the past nine years that we've been friends/together that "whatever will happen, will happen." We were going through a rough patch and had broken up for a whole three days a few years ago and I heard this song by Doris Day. It instantly reminded me of him and I had to have it. It's a nice reminder to myself to just ease up and not worry so much.
This is the day after:
I have 2. My first is a large Cross, wrapped in grapevines on my lower back. at the time it was the only place to put it where it wouldn't show in any performace attire (was a vocal performance major).
my 2nd is on my arm, is in Latin and Translates to "Live rationaly, but Love with Pasion".
I have one: a Pisces symbol on the back of my neck. I got it spontaneously one day after work in the summer of 2008, so it doesn't really have a whole lot of meaning. It's just my Zodiac sign. I got it while DH and I were dating and he was so upset he almost broke up with me. So I guess I won't be getting any more, even though I want more. I'd get a daffodil, chrysanthemum, and poppy on my foot - the birth month flowers of me, DH, and DS. I'd leave room for one more flower/child. Here's a pic of mine. Boring, I know:
This is my left forearm. The words are from The Gaslight Anthem's "Blue Jeans and White Tshirts" and the orange symbol is from The Hold Steady's "Stay Positive." The boat is from Gaslight's first release, if you can call it that; it was on the stickers they made and out on the demo CDs that they put together and handed out.
Below it on my wrist is the simple text "forgive[n(ess)]" which I came up with. Forgive, forgiven, forgiveness.
Right forearm, the title of Gaslight's first full album.
Once I am 1.) not breastfeeding, and 2.) have money, I will continue filling up my arms. I need a lighthouse on the other side of my left forearm, in the same style.
