    My Pooh Tattoo

    I have a winnie the pooh tattoo down near my right ankle on my right leg. It was a premarriage gift from my husband. Matter of fact he got it for me for my 30th birthday. He is a great guy and I love him much. Don't know where I would be without him. Probably lost in space...

    Abstract Or Mine Own!

    I've wanted to get a tattoo for the past few years, but haven't been near any good parlors, or had enough money to get one. The ones I want anyway. I've always been fascinated by the works of H.R. Giger and biomechanical artwork. More importantly I've always come up with these...

    I Never Got Around To It...

    wanted a tattoo since I was around 12/13 years old! I wanted  one of my favorite bands-still is today. Then, as you love and lose,I finally decided that I wanted a symbol that represented the pain that certain exes and ( one so called male friend that brought tragedy to my soul...

    Mother And Daughter Tattoo

    My daughter is turning 18 soon and we are going to get a tattoo together. It's a mother and daughter type of thing, so it will be the same tattoo for both of us. We've been trying to come up with some ideas. Any suggestions from my EP friends? It needs to be something small...

    Still On the Fence

    After all these years, I finally know what I want for a tattoo - it's a phrase in French.  But, I still have reservations about marking my body permanently and where to put it.  And of course there is always the age thing - putting it somewhere that will still be...

    I'd like to get a small,

    meaningful tattoo someday. I've never been afraid of blood or needles, and have a pretty high pain tolerance, so I don't think it sound be a problem.

    If I ever get a name inked on my body

    permanently, it's going to be my father's. I love him the most in this whole universe. He is the biggest influence in my life. Every Father's Day he told me that the biggest gift you can give me is by being a good human being, by being a strong independent woman with a lot of...

    Im not in a position to get tattoos

    for awhile but an idea has been haunting me for awhile. I recently lost both my grandparents and it inspired the thought of getting a tattoo for every person I lose in my family. So far a rose for my grandma and a hummingbird for my grandpa. I know I want tattoos at some point...

    I want a tattoo, but the fact

    that it's permanent is what makes me reluctant to get one. I just don't want to wake up one morning and say to myself, what the heck was I thinking? A tattoo on the soles of my feet may be one option.

    I Do?

    There a certian verse in the Bible, I think it is Leviticus 17:27, which people (I used to be one of them) swear up and down says, "Do not get tattoos".  From what I heard, a more accurate translation from the ancient Hebrew would be, "Do not cut yourselves in rememberance of...

    If I wanted to be really bold I would get a

    I want to get the celtic symbol

    for family on my right shoulder blade. That way I can hide it when I need to and show it of when I want to. Plus that symbol speaks to me. My family is very important to me and the symbol also symbolizes bonds.
