    It has been a childhood dream to get a phoenix

    imprinted onto my wrist... But I hear so much about pain and side effects that I haven't been able to decide... I think its high time I should get it inked...

    I love the idea of self expression on yourself.

    It's almost like your non verbally telling people that you don't give a **** to show them who you truly are...:)

    Irony

    I have a friend at work who is what I call a "girly girl". She is always in style and had never been seen without make up. She wears skirts a touch too short to show off her shapely legs (they are stunning) and her sweaters are of the deeeeep V variety. She is a lovely person in...

    I will get my first tattoo very soon.

    I have the idea since a long time now, so I'm pretty sure I want it. Are there any general tips you can give me? What should I expect when I get inked? Is it too 'risky' to get a tattoo behind your ear when it's your first time? I'm curious.

    If I could tolerate the pain,

    I'd have a whole sleeve by now. But since I can only take so much, I'll just stay with the 2 I have for now :/

    I've got two pieces, one on each shoulder already.

    Another one added to the collection.

    I'm going back in 2 weeks to get another tattoo and I'll be back in a couple of months to finish my koi sleeve (I'd love to finish it now, but that one is a bit pricey). The more tattoos I get, the more complete I feel :)

    There is just something cool about tattoo's,

    I wanna know what's behind them, where they got the ink done if I like them, it's all fascinating. Most of all though, I love my tattoos. They're precious to me, meaningful, and long dreamed of too. Who knows what will be next.

    When Pigs Fly

    My best friend always said "when pigs fly". So when she died in 2001, I made a vow to her...she would live on in many ways, including in the ink that I would get in her memory. I knew right away what I wanted. A flying pig. I told the important people in our lives, my parents...

    Another addition to my collection of ink.

    It's halfway done. All that's left is the shading. This is my second tattoo. My first is my back piece, which is pretty huge. I'm already thinking of my next one :p

    If you have tattoos that aren't hidden under

    your clothes, those would be the first thing I'd notice about you. I'll memorize the tattoos but I'll have to try my best to remember you. We could never meet ever again and I'll still remember the tattoos and if we do, i'd recognize those first before recognizing you.

    No offense, but I love

    when a person's tattoos tell stories instead of just random things or trends.

    My Skin

    I love the fact that I can change my skin into something totally unique.  I have a large back piece in the works and just knowing that my back already looks totally like ME, and like no one else anywhere in the world makes me feel totally free.  I work in a...

    So I don't have a lot,

    but the ones that I do have are meaningful. I like more than anything to design and look at tattoos. They look really good on some people, but I feel like everyone should have at least one :) I've got a big life event coming up and I've designed a new tattoo to mark the...

    Looking forward to getting my very first one

    this week, and I've picked out a design and color scheme that speaks to my Native American side. I've wanted tattoos for years but a fear of needles has kept me from getting one. Once I conquer this fear, I'm sure this will be the first of many. Stay tuned....
