This is one of 5 of my tattoos… The only good picture I have of any tattoos on my computer – also my most impressive tattoos.  This picture was taken over 6 years ago when I first got it (you can tell by my swollen foot).  Other tattoos consists of: Denali with an alpenglow, Twin Cities skyline iced over with snowflakes, and two different sets of vines (one is supposed to eventually cover the other… but I started grad school and can’t afford to fly back to the tattoo artist, so I’ll take care of that one later 😉  I’m actually working with a friend who is a tattoo artist on a half sleeve.  His prelim drawings are so impressive so far!  I can’t wait to see the final piece 😀

Oh, what inspired me was my life from that point on and my experience as a young person venturing out on her own.  It’s the tree of life!  It represents not only the cultural differences I have experienced along the way, but my personal growth 🙂

The tree took 2 3-hour sessions.  And it’s all on bone… so you can imagine.  I have a pretty high pain tolerance, so I almost passed out before I realized that it was hurting my body.

I’ve been debating on getting tattoed for awhile now actually. I wanted to get a one with a picture of my Grandpa and Nana on my shoulders.

What is it like being tattoed?

I have a half-sleeve featuring the stuffed elephant my great-grandma gave me the day I was born, cheetah print, and some roses. I also have my mom’s handwriting on my left wrist and my dad’s on my right wrist, a diamond on my sternum (not pictured), a Celtic knot on my foot (not pictured), a large sparrow with a rose and filigree on my back (not pictured), and my most recent is cross with “Be still” underneath. Also pictured is my superhot tattoo artist/husband 

**Sorry the pictures are all flipped different ways. I don’t know how to fix it**

Sweetpeaontheweddingbee7:  Like someone/something scratching you.  Hard muscle and bone are typically the most painful areas.

Here are some of mine. The lilies were inspired by my childhood pet, a white boxer named Lily. The sugar skull has a lot of symbols inside it that mean a lot to me. The roses for eyes have infinity signs inside of them and represent my Alma Mater. The skull has a gold tooth in the same spot that my dad had one and there’s a gap in the teeth because everyone in my family has a gap. There’s a peace sign added into the nose. I also have an infinity sign on the back of my neck. I plan on getting a cresent moon in a month or so, still deciding on the placement. It will be in memory of my dad.

And my DH’s newest. It’s a ghost ship, with 5 skulls that represent his 5 best friends.

I’ve had my tattoo for a little over 5 years. It is a Hawaiian sea turtle, or “honu” in the native language. I wanted it since I was 11 years old after I went snorkeling with sea turtles in Hawaii — they’re beautiful. My family used to vacation there when we had the chance and they were always great and relaxing, which wasn’t typically how our home life was. It serves as a reminder that things were good sometimes and that my family was happy together in Hawaii. sorry if pic is enormous, my b.

Mine are all little:

Wrist

I have two others, I’ll take a pic of my foot tattoo and post later, but I hate my side tattoo (a very small constellation that got ruined with my second child). I plan to get it covered when I’m done having children.

BeeG35:  I have 5 tattoos, all quotes , all scripts. My FI however has amazing full sleeves. You would never know it though if you met him on  a Mon-Fri which I’ve always really loved. He’s like a weekend tattoo super hero.
