okay A. I'm obsessed with Craftster...
and B. This is my first post...so i hope this is right!!
and C. this may be a looong post
okay, we shall start with the first tattoo!!
My daughter was born 2 months premature in 2004 and only weighed 3 lbs....so i decided to get her name tattooed to my back with little pink angel wings around her name, since she is my little angel!! Her name is Trysten (thanks to the movie 'Legends of the Fall'
and my Ma...if she wouldn't have stepped in and suggested that name, my daughter would have been named Baby...yep--i was having a hormonal 'Dirty Dancing' moment, and would have named her Baby...
Then my son was born in 2007, and he is the exact opposite of my tiny little daughter...he weighed 9 lbs, and currently isn't even 2 yet, and is heavier than she is! His name is below hers with blue angel wings around it... His name is Kemper (thanks to the new (new being 2003) 'Texas chainsaw massacre' movie
Then quite a few years ago, someone very close to me passed away, and i got this tattoo in remembrance of him, its a lyric from Keith Urban's song 'Tonight I Wanna Cry'
Then last year, my Lovely and I went to visit my bestest friend in the whole world-who moved to Texas-and she and I got matching tattoos on our feets (the most painful thing I've ever experienced
*mines on the left*
In 2006 I got married-that was my first mistake....-then I got the tattoo, in a drunken stupor, that every sane person will tell you not to get....one with evil's name on it
and to make matters worse, it was a horrible tattoo ANYWAY!!
But luckily i met someone who is a fabulous tattoo artist, and told him that i liked the idea of having the horseshoe tattoo...but wanted the name GONE and i just let him go at it all freehand, and i am very pleased with the way it has turned out!!
and then i got this tattoo which is by far my favorite! My Nanny aka Grandmother, is 92 years old and is as crafty as they come!!! for her last birthday, everyone in our family each made our own quilt blocks (which showed off everyone's personalities for sure!) and we gave them to her, and she ended up making two quilts with all the blocks, because lots of us made several quilt blocks.... my Nanny is my hero
and this is MY most recent tattoo, my cousin, who has lived with my mother and us most of our lives (he was more like a brother to me) and I had the same birthday, well he recently passed away and so i got the roman numerals for our b-day 11-4 and found a font i liked online and printed it off, and got them tattooed to my wrist in hot pink..his favorite color, this picture was right after it was done so its not the best picture...it hasn't healed yet
those are all MY tattoos, and i am currently working on a sleeve tattoo, which will also be dedicated to my cousin who passed, and i will post it as soon as its done.
but these are tattoos that i had a hand in designing or picking them out...they make me proud
my sister's, in remembrance of our cousin....The Eye of Bast?
I'm not sure what it is for sure, but i know it was something they both love-Egyptian stuff
this is my Ma's in remembrance for him...(FYI-he was a hair dresser, and he had his own shop called 'Hello Gorgeous' and lips was the signature look for the shop)
then this is my friends tattoo that we both designed together, she is in LOVE with elephants, and she is very musically talented...so we decided on this adorable pink elephant- blowing music notes out her trunk and they flow up her back to a bigger musical note tattoo she has that looks like a heart...
and then this is my Ma's other tattoo she got that i picked out...its supposed to be a hummingbird but he doesn't really look like a hummingbird anymore--blue bird i guess?...but i just love his little Mohawk on the top of his noggin!
