For the longest time I have been thinking about getting a sword and butterfly together somewhere, but I don't think that's really going to happen. It would be a memory tattoo, and after thinking about what that would really mean, I don't think I'm into it. Don't get me wrong, getting tattoos in memory of people is a fine idea, but my tattoo couldn't watch me graduate or walk me down the aisle or advise me when I buy my first house or have kids...and that's why I'm now leaning towards being against the idea.
More recently, I've been thinking about getting cherry blossoms somewhere. Cliched? Ehh, I like them. They would probably be in a more artistic/painted-on type of style rather than a traditional style.
I would also like to get a lyric from "Cells" by The Servant. The lyric is "All I do I wanna do with you"...or "want to"...depends on your preference, I guess.
Anyway, The Servant is a favorite band for a lot of my friends and I, and the song is very beautiful. I really like how it talks about being in love and doing the things you love to do while balancing that with being grown up and having to live a more adult life with mortgages and cooking dinner and such. I also think that if I got it, it would also represent my love for my boyfriend of two and a half years, although I don't want to get something that is only associated with him unless we break up or something.
My boyfriend is thinking of getting some type of half-sleeve devoted to anime and manga, which, while I think it's a little dorky, could also be really cool if he chose the right combination of characters and had a great artist and such. I've tossed around the idea of an anime/manga tattoo as well, but I think mine would be a symbol instead of a character...like the symbol on Ed's jacket in Fullmetal Alchemist. *dork who loves FMA*
Someone I know has that symbol behind her ear and I think it looks really cool.
The last thing I've thought about getting a tattoo for/about would be my desire to become a social worker and my reasons behind choosing that career path. I had a really awful childhood and teenage life, and while I've been working towards getting over that, I also want to keep it in my mind because it's one of the motivating factors behind my going to school and getting my degree to work in a child protection field.
Oh, wait, there was one more thing, but I'm sure all of us crafters really secretly want one - a crafty tattoo. Mine would be of a crochet hook and a ball of yarn, with some type of crafty text to go along with it.
That was a lot. I'm sorry; I think about things waaay too much.
