Hey Ladies and Gents,
So I’ve been a good girl, no tattoos for me in about 3 years, but I watched Miami Ink last night and I’m ruined… I want another one. Any others contemplating adding some more ink?
(I searched and saw the last tattoo post was about 11 months ago so I thought I’d make a new one)
I currently have three – My first one was when I was 18. I got the Deftones White Pony cover, not because I like the Deftones a whole heck of a lot (they’re alright) but because I wanted a simplistic outline of a horse as I’ve grown up with them all my life. It’s on my lower back. Tramp stamp? Yes, but I’ve received many compliments on it’s simplistic nature.
2nd I was 19 and was on a whim. I wanted something beautiful, but classy. It’s two dragonflies on my left foot. One pink, one blue. I brought in a watercolor of the two and my artist did an amazing job. I get asked daily if it’s real.
3rd I got when I was 20. I was going through a rough time and so I got an abbreviation of the Serenity Prayer with a small celtic tree of life. The prayer says “Grant me Serenity, Courage, and Wisdom” across my panty line and the celtic tree is on my lower left stomach. My mom and grandma have said this prayer all my life and so it’s meaninful to me to remember to not sweat the little things and focus on things I can control.
I would like to get a new on on my right rib cage of a pair of black and grey sketched work boots with indian feathers draped over them curving around under my breast. I want the feathers to also have some turquoise accents, but all else black and grey as it if was sketched onto me. My grandparents are very important to me and as I’ve had multiple father figures that haven’t always lasted, they have been the other half to my mom, like my second parents. The work boots make me think of my grandpa who has always been a hard worker, and the feathers for my grandma who is a free spirit and has always dressed/worn indian inspired jewelry, especially with turquoise.
(I’ve attached a photo of what I’m thinking about. Sorry no photos for the others, I’m at work.)
How about you guys?
