    Hummingbirds And Butterflies Possibly

    I want a tattoo and have outlined what I want on paper. I want my tattoo to be a private piece of art to be seen by my most intimate friends only. The piece I have drawn is a hummingbird drinking nectar from a flower while a butterfly also drinks from another flower. The whole...

    I have an appointment planned

    for right before my birthday! I'm so psyched. It's going to be a hot air balloon carrying a pocket watch on my right shoulder.

    Big Decision

    I have thought of getting a tattoo for a long time now. I would like to get a mermaid on a rock in the surf, holding a sword. As if to offer it up to someone as if it is the only thing that could take her life. It means trust and surrender to me. I would like her in a black line...

    A Permanent Scar, Forever In Remembrance.

    I'm torn between what design to get. I'd reveal my main three choices here, but the last time I showed someone what tattoo I was getting, THEY went and got it. And, furthermore, it meant nothing to them, they just 'liked the design'. Grrr, I'm still pissed off over that >:( One...

    I'm Going To Get It When I Can Afford It.

    I already have a few, but there's a few more that I want. One is a snake going up my spine. In a lot of Pagan traditions, snakes represent the goddess, rebirth, and ridding the old for the better new. Below is an example, pretty close to what I want.

    I think this tattoo is

    so beautiful and so meaningful. This is the kind of tattoo I want. I don't want just some meaningless ink imbedded in my skin. I want something that can relate to my life perfectly, and this is it. 💕💕💕

    When Lumpy died, Stinky came to me and told me that he wanted a tattoo. I was not in favor of it as he was underaged and I didn't want him marking up his body. Friends advised me that based on the kind of kid Stinky was and the love he had for his Dad, that I should change my...

    I want to get a dot work tattoo,

    because I hear they age quite well and are pretty adaptable. Also, I could do it myself if I had the ink because I have everything else needed.
