May I perchance suggest a big 'G' on your right breast, and a big 'K' on your left?

Thanks.

I've considered a tattoo several times, but I change my mind so often and proudly that I can't settle on anything. I used to draw them on myself just for kicks, with felt-tip markers and powder them in, fooled a couple of folks.
Ones I drew that I can remember:
-strawberry vine running up my foot to my calf
-koi fish jumping on my thigh, looked like he was coming out of my boot
-butterfly on my hip (back before Demon Mariah made them dumb)
-poppies on my belly

If I could afford it (read: if Angua would allow me to spend the money), I'd be covered;. As it stands, I've got three or four. I really like the scene, the look, and the process of tattooing.

Seriously, Dalliance, if you are looking for a tattoo, I'll toss some wood on the fire at work today, and see if I can come up with a pheonix for you that's a bit more personalized.

I've designed several tattoos for myself, though I've never had the money to throw at them. One day, alas.

When I went to Victoria BC my senior year in highschool, a couple of my friends snuck off and got tattoos there.

I was [] this close to getting one too.

Was a combination of not having that much money to spend on it/being chicken/knowing Mom, Music Teacher, and various other mother figures would kill me.

Did get a fake one though, and I wouldn't speak of it's validity until we were on the bus back home. I liked it and was scared that if they knew it was fake before we were on the bus, they'd convince me to get it.

It was a yin-yang, with a corona around it (not the beer, the flames from a sun that you can see pretty well during an eclipse)
It was on my back, between my shoulder blades, kind of.

I have four ATM. Just one... lol. Once you get one you get hooked =). I have an armband with a feather on my left arm, phantom mask and rose on my right pec, a sweet knotwork cetic cross (from a rubbing of an ancient GY in Ireland) on my left thigh, and the "M" scorpio symbol on my left fore arm (inside). Each tat is something that has strong personal meaning to me. I am going to get a Mjolner tat next, either on my left pec or somewhere on my right arm.

Goalkeeper, I adore you baby, but drive through plzkthnxla ~

Merri, my email is amaranthine_dalliance@yahoo.com. I'd be happy to donate to your "Cover me" fund if you can help me realize what it is that I'm looking for. Drop me a line.

I'm *really* hoping that by taking the time (this has been going on for months, actually) to decide what I want, and making it perfect, that I'll be satisfied with just one.

I like looking at others' tattoos as art. I love when people are sleeved, totally realized, but I just want something simple for me.

And yes, it would be "next to a bone." But from all accounts, there is "next to a bone," and there is "NEXT TO A BONE." I think I'll pass on the second one.

I missed the dragon comment. I love Chinese dragons, but they're a bit over done. I'm fixated on this phoenix/celtic ring concept now, but if I did choose a dragon, it would be a fantasy one with a ton of details. I have some drawings done up, but not hosted, so can't be seen at the moment.

Most likely silver, breaking out of the clouds at sunrise.

Thanks for all the comments, everyone. They are very enlightening, and very much appreciated.

A lot of my friends have tattoos. One guy draws them himself. His latest one is a dragon that wraps around his arm. Fully colored, shaded, with shadows and detail work. Oh yeah and his arm is about 25" around; the dragon's wings wrap around them. Very cool.

I've considered getting one but it's just one of many things I've never bothered to do. I'd put John Constantine on one arm, and 'Belhade' on the other.

My sister got a tattoo; it's a blue rose? or some flower, at the top of her breast. So it showed up marvellously when she was in her wedding gown! My brother got the standard barbed wires around bicep and ankle while in prison.

I've got an awesome pheonix I worked up for some sports team somewhere... they were called the Firebirds... but I decided I liked the design more than they wanted it, so I fixed them up with something else. I'll do some knot work around it, and see what happens.

Looking through my jazz at work, I've also got a dragon, an AMAZINGLY cute rhino, a wonderful horse, and a couple other things. I'm out of town until Sunday, but I'll certainly shoot you an email very shortly. =)

I got some stuff worked up for you: gimmie a few to get with you via email. =)

One of 'em is awesome. If you don't get it, I will!

Got you a horse, a pheonix, and a dragon so far... The dragon's my favorite, the pheonix took the most work. =P All of 'em are designed with a 5"x5" size in mind, lemme know if that's too big.

No email received, and I've been anxiously sitting at the edge of my seat =D

If it hasn't been sent, yet, no worries. I'm just having problems with email, as well as with links lately. =/

Speaking as a quasi-expert on tatooing (I'm a sailor) They are ADDICTING! Seriously, I have 12 tats and am contemplating more. If I had a digital camera I'd post them. Always personalize your tattoo, flash books are a very bad idea. Also, try to find a tattoo shop where the people there are into it for the art, not the paycheck. If a tattooist can't draw, he can't sling ink either, so always check that.

Something that no one has spoke of, safety. Before you get the tat, check the shop out. If the guy is using the same needle for each inkpot, there is a problem. Check sanitation, do they wipe the seats down afterwards (some tats can get bloody) all these things you want to look for. Skin infection is very very painful (Voice of experience talking) and is not something you want.

Now, on to my tats. The two that I'm am proud of are my half-sleeves that I have on each arm.
On the left arm I have a Death type figure in tattered robes, no feet showing. You cannot see his face but he clutches a rough looking scythe with the blade turned inwards. On the blade it reads Carpe Noctum (Not original, I know, but makes sense with the other one.)
On my right arm is a brunette (some of the little color I have in my tats) with delicate features wearing a simple, thin white dress that appears to be blowing slightly in the wind. The artist who I had sling my ink was good enough that he was able to fade the outline of her body onto my arm. Her feet are obscured by clouds. She is holding an open tome in front of her, you know, the big old-fashioned books. On the book it says Carpe Diam.

I designed both of the tats, but I didn't draw them.

Thanks for the update.

I read "Give me a few" as in "Give me a few minutes, not days."

I'm rather excited to see them, and still ****** I can't see the links.

Thanks to you all I drove around Sunday with Flea looking for a Tatoo place.

Might not be able to fight my urge to get one if this keeps up.

Don't do it.

Avoid being just another fad chasing, trendy, middle aged and midlife crisis struck person who wants to retain their youth by affecting a "hip" symbol of popular culture.

Getting a tattoo is about as sorry as getting your ears pierced and buying a Harley in your 50's. It just seems so sad that these people have no identity outside of assuming a me-too-like attitude.

It's a pitiful display of shallowness.

Ummm yeah.

Wow, you're so full of **** it's not even funny. Don't like tattoos, Totem? Then don't get one.

Tattoos have become a fad. Does this make it less meaningful when you get one? No. If you get it for the wrong reasons than yeah, you're an idiot. If you got one (or six) because you like them, good for you. Do what you want, because it's your life and your body. If someone else doesn't like it, they can **** off.

Just because something has become a fad doesn't mean it has no value. Personally I'm not going to let fad chasers ruin something for me that means something. I don't get tattoos for other people, I get them for ME. And not so I can feel young (what has that got to do with anything?) or hip (never wanted to be) or in some mysterious "in" crowd.

Amen, sistah! I have mine, I love 'em and no one gets to see them unless I say so. ***** everyone else and their *** "twattoos". One of the great things about my tattoos is that they always take me back to a time and place in my life. And back then, life was good. Oh yeah....
