I don't have any. I think most of them are interesting though. I watch Miami Ink on TLC. I love to see what people get and why. Those guys on there are really good!!

I have a zuni bear fetish between one of my shoulder blades my only regret is I put it in a spot where no one can see I would like an indian bear paw symbol but the one I got, put me in big time shock the tatooist had to stop several times for me to recover I almost quit in the middle of it but Im glad I have it now.

I'm getting a tattoo, just don't know when. It is/was a tradition in the Philippines to get a tattoo to mark adulthood and it would be neat to be able to carry on the tradition.

Anau, that is a good reason. Keeping up with your cultural tradition is a very cool thing, as it has deep meaning. :) This I agree with.


That said, I think it will be quite humorous to be in the old folk's retirement home, seeing all the 80 year old gals with their rising suns on their backs...or at least they used to be there...now they're setting somewhere south...and thier silicone chests. Goes so well with the false teeth and walkers.

Robo, I'm curious about the piercings...ears? lips? nose? eyebrow?

My daughter has a small Rolling Stones Tongue on her ankle that is really cute, and a rose on her breast.
Last time we went to Key West, I thought really hard about getting one, but I'd been partyin' all day, and my very wise husband suggested I sleep on it, and decide the next morning. I was going to get a small butterfly on my fanny.
Our friend's daughter is a beautiful young woman, but her whole back and one shoulder are covered with a large tatoo (spider web), in addition to others on her body. The tats are beautiful, a real work of art, but for my own taste, way too much. She has such beautiful skin, and you can't even see it with all the ink.
We get by with a little help from our friends

I watched a couple of my friends get inked about a month and a half ago.
So I came home and designed one that I will reward myself with.

I'm close to 300 pounds right now. I just moved to a new city, started a new job, I have a new place to live and a new outlook. I don't think of myself as 300 pounds I think of myself at about 190-200. So I plan on joining the gym starting March. I priced out memberships at the YMCA and Planet Fitness. I will go with planet fitness at 15 dollars a month.

Before I left Hickory I was talking with a friend and she said to me "I need to work on me before I worry about someone else." I thought, you know your right. I need to get me to the point where I look like the way I picture myself.

SO, when I get to my goal, I'm getting my ink.
sorry that was a little long way around to a simple answer.
