Tattoos, who has 'em?

.......and care to share the meaning of them, or tell us what they look like or how many you have?
I'm watching LAInk right now cause nothing else is on.
DS#1 got one or 12 of them in the military and has continued.
DS#2 followed big brother of course and has a few.
Husband just got one of me on his shoulder, last year.
Then he got his folks on his other shoulder after that.
Says he's done, I'm wonderin...

I've got a few...5 to be exact, but it appears to be 3.

On my inner left ankle I have a gecko..my first tattoo..A tribute to my iguana. Around that is a daisy chain, done in two parts, one per year (money issue).

On my left shoulder is a little bee, size of a quarter, I supposed. My drawing.

On my lower back is what has been dubbed as a "tramp stamp"..I guess. It's my sun sign (Libra) and my husband's sun sign (Leo) entwined.

I have two more I want to get. One is "Gigi" over my heart, small...it's a nick name given to me by my neices and nephew. The other one I want is a quarter size four leaf clover with my dad's date of birth over it.

I've always wanted them.. but I change so often, I would be afraid of not liking it later. Would have to be something about my daughter, the ONE consistency in my life haha. Before kids, I wanted one around my belly button... glad I refrained from that after seeing what pregnancy does!!!

I know what you mean, shannon. Pregnancy and age have a funny way of helping our body succumb to gravity.

Reminds me of the two little old ladies in the doctor's office. In walked a very buxom young woman wearing a low-cut blouse. Clearly visible over her left breast was the tattoo of a red rose.

One little old lady leaned over to the other and whispered discretely to her friend, "Tsk, tsk! By the time she's our age, that'll be a long-stemmed rose in a hanging basket."

So, guess it's best not to get a tattoo on a place that'll be subject to age and gravity.

got 6 tats and 7 piercings

the tats are stone carvings or stained glass from gothic cathedrals ... a wivern, a grotesque, a gargoyle, an imp, a geometric cross, and the descending dove (holy spirit)

the piercings are...oh you didn't ask about those, my bad.

Same here, Charlie. Sorry, but they are a big Turn OFF for me.

That reminds me. "Rock Of Love" is premiering again (second time) next Sunday on VH1.

I have a small tattoo in a discreet place. My own drawing of a small heart surrounded by small flowers. No one knows my little secret. Not something that shows. It has significance to me that occured during a major change in my life. It has been years now and I don't regret it.

Five with four showing, 1 is a cover-up. I have a dragon on my right calf, it's a replication of my favorite dragon figure. A Kokopelli on my left shoulder. He's the Hopi Indian symbol of fertility and is a trickster as I can be sometimes. . An orchid on my right shoulder for my mom who grows them and a sun/moon that I drew. I like space and astronomy and the sun/moon represents that.
