As some of you know, I have one small tattoo & I love it. I really want to have some things added to it but it will be a long time before I can afford to have that done. I discovered when I got mine, that for me, ink is addictive! I love to see others tattoos & heare the story or meanings behind them. They have fascinated me for a very long time.

I forgot to share a funny tatoo story my sentiment with my kids kind of got in the way. A friend of mine had Thumper the bunny tattoed on her hip area in high school- well she gained a lot of weight during her pregancy and Thumper stretched quite a bit. Today Thumper looks like a California raisin!!!

Think about how permanent they are--or how much it will cost to remove.

That's the point. A tattoo is a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I'd never remove a tattoo. It's a memory of a time past, even if it was done on a whim.

I'm with you! After I got mine I started paying a lot more attention to others' and started finding them more attractive and interesting. Funny,huh? I would also like to get at least one more... but I'm not sure what or where.

I also think that the media has ALWAYS presented characters with tattoos as 'dangerous/trouble' or 'trashy'. Sometimes it's very subtle, and sometimes it's not. It's like the powers that be have some vested interest in keeping things that way. I'm not sure why. It's kinda the same way they are about the whole "meeting people on the Internet" issue. Sure, there are risks... but there are risks whenEVER you meet someone. I just think it's interesting to recognize how certain issues are CONTINUALLY presented by the mainstream media... Oh, wait - - guess I've gone off-topic a little with my rant, huh? Oh, well.

Phinz, we share the exact same feelings on this subject. Even if a time in your life (or a person) that once held postive meaning doesn't do so any more, the memory of when things were good (& hopefully happy) is worth recalling.
