I've lurked for way too long; you all have gorgeous tattoos! I want to break the bank just idly scrolling through.
So, here are mine. I have to provide links, because I'm a craftster noob:http://h1.ripway.com/pleasegohome/littlebird.jpg
This is an american robin, which is an important bird to me for several reasons, including a rather traumatic childhood memory of watching (in despair) a magpie steal from a robin's nest...poor thing! It's on my left hip.http://h1.ripway.com/pleasegohome/oiseau.jpg
This one's, as you can see, on my right shoulder. In case you were wondering, birds are significant to me in general because they have the good sense to fly away when things are impossible (i.e. heading south for the winter). They represent this sort of ultimate freedom and ability to go wherever you want - wherever you need to be. I'm definitely someone who needs to fly away sometimes http://h1.ripway.com/pleasegohome/oiseaus1.jpghttp://h1.ripway.com/pleasegohome/oiseaus2.jpg
You can't really see these ones in full because it's effing hard to photograph your arm, even if it's your left one
These three hummingbirds were designed by my dear friend, who also designed the swallow on my shoulder.
Keep posting, friends, I love seeing all these lovely works of art!
