wow, this thread is unbelievable!! there are so many amazing tattoos, i am just in awe!
anyway, i got my first and only (for now) tattoo with my mom 2 years ago as a going-away event for me b/c i moved from FL to PA and we had always wanted to get tattoos together and just had never done it. i originally wanted a fairy, possibly a tinkerbell, but i couldn't ever find anything that was "just perfect". while looking at random sites and fantasy pictures, i found a picture of a baby unicorn and it hit me. THIS IS IT! it was perfect for me. so i got the unicorn in pink with purple hair!
i love it so much, but i wish it was in a better place. i never get to see it or anything. at the time, i just wanted it to be able to be covered easily, and i had heard it didn't hurt much there, which i was also concerned about. it came out looking rather like a My Little Pony, and though that wasn't the intention, i don't mind it at all. but that is what everyone says when they see it:
sorry it's a big pic. i didn't notice it until i was going to post it, and now i am too lazy to change it.
now i am just dying to get another one! i know i want a song around my ankle, the actual notes of a song (i am a band geek), but i am not sure what song i want yet. it will have to be a really important song to me. i am in love with this idea, but i don't have a song that i am that passionate about yet. it will come someday.
my next tat, i have decided, will be a tribute to my band director who died in a car accident in 2000. i wasn't quite sure what i wanted to do, but a friend of mine was talking of one she was going to do (for the same person) and it sparked an idea for me. it has to do with something he said the day he died, for apparently no reason at the time, but it meant a lot to us later. at the end of band rehearsal that day, he said to us "see you on the other side of the rainbow" as we left. it was kind of weird at the time, but he was a weird guy sometimes, and none of us thought to much of it. that night he was killed in a bad car accident that was just that, an accident. there was talk after that about him commiting suicide because of what he said, and i suppose it could be true, but none of us think that. so anyway... i want a treble clef with a rainbow coming out of it. under it will be the words "see you on the other side" and under that maybe, or somewhere sort of hidden will be "DK 2000"
here is something i worked up in photoshop (b/c i can't draw):
i used a rainbow pic and kind of pieced it together in there, so it doesn't look great, but i'd get an artist who could make it like i want. i just wanted to do this to get a general idea. the rainbow would extend out and then i am not quite sure. it might end up a normal rainbow and maybe end on a fluffy cloud, or it might twist and flow like a ribbon. any other idead for it? or for where the writing would look best?
i might also post this bottom part in the other thread for tattoo ideas, but i dunno if it's allowed to post it twice. i haven't been on craftster long. hmm...
