I am such a wuss and indecisive person so I don’t have any – plus my job doesn’t allow visible tattoos, but if I ever got one, it’d probably be text.

I have five, but this is probably my favorite. I got it while recovering from an eating disorder I’d had for nearly ten years, as a reminder to respect my body and treat it right. It’s on my upper back, just below my neck.

I have one on my right hip. It’s the Social Distortion skeleton (They’ve been my favorite band for forever). That’s the only one so far. But, I have a very strict rule: Because tattoos are permanent, I have to want it for ten years before I will get it.

I have a huge tattoo on my forearm that I am now paying my make-up artist to cover up for me on our wedding day!

Mine is a stick figure holding a daisy on the left side of my lower back.  It has no meaning behind it.  I just thought it would be a cute and fun tattoo to have!  I love it!

Don’t really have have any great pics of my tat, but here it is.  It is my dad’s initials inside of a star.  My dad passed away suddenly on December 3, 2004, I got this done in February of 2005.  On a Sunday night, my mom and my two best friends went to a tattoo place that was about to close and the artist was sooo nice.  He redrew the design about five times until I was completely happy with it.  My mom held my hand my friends made me laugh and the artist put on some funky 70’s tunes to distract us all.  I said a few choice curse words.  I met my Fiance in May of 2005.  

 

** Honestly, I love my tattoo, but I don’t think I will ever get another one.  I chose to get it in the place that I did because it would be well hidden.  It would be my private memory that I only had to share with those that I wanted to.  Now I am choosing to wear my hair down during my wedding, but I will not be covering it up with make up or anything like that.  They are very painful, expensive, and no matter what, someone will end up judging you for it.  Not that I care about that last part because I know that mine is meaningful and sentimental.  If you choose to get one, just make sure it is something that will still be very very important to you still when you are older…

Mine is a butterfly on the back of my left shoulder. I got it on the one-year anniversary of my mom’s death, in her memory. When I was 17, I got my first tattoo (a crow on my hip), and when I called my mom to tell her “I got a tattoo!”, her response was, “So did I!” My mother, at 54-years-old, got her first tattoo, and proceeded to get 3 or 4 more. She used to love butterflies and had a bunch of butterfly sculptures and wall-hangings in her bedroom. I also have a memories of going to various butterfly flight exhibits with her. The artist who did the tattoo modified the design on the butterfly, to incorporate little hearts where circles were originally.

The first one I got was a butterfly with my older sister’s initials below it. She passed when I was younger and had the same tattoo. I got it right after my 18th birthday. The second one I got is the Trinity on my foot but I can’t seem to find a picture of it. The third is a latin saying on my ribs. I love them all and would love to get another!
