I Want a Tattoo

    I want multiple tattoos on my back,

    arms, legs, and maybe even my neck when I'm old enough. I'm thinking about having wings on my back, some quotes on my arms, a snake curling around my ankle, and something small and meaningful on the back of my neck. The pictures I have are only examples, I'm not sure if I really...

    I want a dragon on the back of my right

    shoulder, with a slim, spiraling tribal designs trailing down to my waist... And then on my left side, the same type of design tracing across my ribs, to my side, down to my waist, to meet with a scrolling, flowery hip piece... I've been in love with these ideas for a long time...

    I've written down a list of things

    that I wanna get tattooed! I really hope someday I will find some time and money to go get it done. I would really love to get a cracked compass on my wrist.

    It's hard because those around me judge me

    for wanting to permanently mark my body. My life revolves around church because my parents are so involved and many Christians believe it's a sin. My father has tattoos but my mother doesn't really agree with them. I wouldn't get anything huge like a sleeve. I just want a couple...

    I designed my next tattoo!

    I love art, and drawing is my passion. So I came up with this simple, but cute design. Ignore the white spots. It's white gouache. I put dots in the background but didn't like it so I white it out.

    for any one wanting to get their first tats

    I'll tell u from experience I got mine in January and my artist told me the anticipation is far worse then the pain. needless to say my first thought as I braced my self for the needle was 'yeah right' but when he started I kept waiting for agonizing pain. truth is it wasn't...

    I really want a tattoo.

    . I want it basically between the middle of my front but closer to my right hip. I'd love a heart of something like that. I'm really worried that after I have children it will look really weird and stretched though... Anyone with experiences in tattoos stretching on the stomach...

    I think I am getting tattoo fever.

    ..I already have a few but it's been over a year since my last one. Some girls do "retail therapy". I think I am in need of some "ink therapy"😄

    Tattoo's are just about the coolest

    and prettiest thing you can do to your body. My mom and dad both have tattoos (a dragon and Celtic cross respectively), and it just makes me want one so effing bad. I'd think I'd like a dragon like my mom.

    In The Chair

    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...

    My Godmother and I want to get matching tattoos

    before she moves. We would get one similar to this on except with the heart colored in red. It would be placed on the inside of our left ankle... I'm kinda unsure if I should get it... Any opinions?

    I just need to decide what I want

    and where I want it which I am having a difficult time doing. I think it would be cool to have a sleeve tattoo but I don't want my tattoo to affect my chances of getting hired later on.

    I grew up with the idea

    that your body is pure and you shouldn't mark it. Since I was raised christian tattoos were generally considered sort of taboo with my friends and family growing up. I'd rather not get something that stands for a person in particular but something I generally believe in. In my...

    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.
