    I've always felt self-conscious about my

    scoliosis and how crooked my back was because of it. I want to get a tattoo of a vine that curves along my back with my spine. I think it would feel like I was taking control of my body.

    I've met a lot of people

    who said they'd never even date a women with a tattoo. Which is wrong, because tattoos are supposed to represent you. It's art. When I'm 18+, I'm going to get a tattoo of a semicolon on my wrist, or finger. A lot of people ask me why, but it's a symbol for people who have...

    I want to get a tattoo of a cat outline.

    When times were bad I had a neighbourhood cat that always came to me. I felt like I had my own spirit guide. She stopped coming the week I walked out.

    Ok...I'm 52 and want to get a tattoo

    for the first time. My sister and I want to get them for our sister who passed away. It's not very big but I don't know where to get it. Someone told me I'm too old to get it on my inner wrist. Thought?
