I have four tattoos. Two of them are combined so I guess technically I only have 3 but Ive been tattooed four times so to me that's 4.



This is on my left leg. The little butterfly in the middle was my very first tattoo. I got it years ago when I was about 19 or 20. I was mad that day and decided I needed a tattoo. I had the chair in a death grip before he started because I was terrified! After he did the first line I laughed and said, "that's it? that doesn't hurt"  This year I decided that it was a bit dull and needed jazzed up. I'm 27 so it had been awhile since Id gotten tattooed. The hedgehogs are for my two dogs, the grey one for Laylay and the brown one for Hercules who died when my house burned down. The tattoo artist actually laughed out loud when I brought in my dog's toy hedgehog. (I talk with my hands alot and everytime I put my hands down it would squeak) I'm thinking of adding flowers to it but cant decide if it will look good.

 

This is my newest one,its on my left forearm. A UT design but I drew the bead myself and was ridiculously proud because I cant draw. My tattoo artist always likes when I come in because according to him I have "kickass ideas" My mother utterly hates this one but its one of my favorites.



This one I dont like so much, its on my right leg halfway between my ankle and knee(please ignore the glaringly white leg). I call it my genie bottle. It was a "eh why not" tattoo and those are never a good idea. I want to do something with it but have no clue what. Any suggestions would be awesome.

I am completely in love with tattoos and have to get at least one more, my right forearm, I feel off balance with one on my left arm and none on my right. I have no idea what to get though. I keep thinking a word in Theban maybe or a pentacle or a fairy or vampire or...... well you get the idea.

I have three tattoos.  I designed all of them and drew one of them onto my skin and then had it tattooed.

they are all about 20 years old now. 

this one was my first:  I designed it from two separate knots I combined.  the middle part came from a  "celtic coloring book" it was the corners of a stained glass window in the book, and the outer part was based off a celtic knot flash piece I had seen....


this tattoo is a phoenix.  i had designed it, then my artist did this tat freehand off of my design.
yes the phoenix is going into the flame.  now I am thinking about having it finally rise from the ashes instead of going down into flames, due to life now....


I drew this one directly onto my foot and my friend tattoed it, I have never gotten it colored in because I could never decide what i wanted at first and then i found out i really like doing things like henna or markers and such and switching it up.  it is like my own little coloring book i suppose...

Wow that freehand phoenix is cool, but those Celtic knots are awesome!

I think it would be really cool if you expand on the damask feel all around your leg!

I finally got mine done about 2 months ago. My design, & I got to pick my main colors and my tattooist coordinated the shading and other little extras he threw in. He actually thanked me at the end of my 5 hour session for allowing him to have some artistic control. That was almost unheard of with all the previous tattoos I have gotten. I plan to go back for more, but what exactly I am including is up in the air. Grin I'm sure I will draw inspiration from this board.

1st picture is my second draft of my ink. I had originally had more leaves but decided less was more and the 4 signifies my 2 sisters, my brother and my self. Cheesy
Then there is my tattoo nicely healed after about a month in natural light at sundown. I still love it every time I see it.


This is a look at the fresh ink. The ink is very vivid only because my blood really brings out the color.  Tongue

I have used the idea of tribal wings in many of my projects, but my first use of this exact design was in 2008, on a shirt. I ended up re-using my design enough times that I decided to get them inked.



So, this summer, I finally got it done! I am so happy with my wings Cheesy



This picture cracks me up, my friend (left) and husband (far right) went with me as I got my tattoo done, and my tattoo artist was nice enough to pose with us.

lol I never noticed before, but it dose look like a piece of a damask design. A friend of my mind thinks it would look really neat as a crown for a fairy.

Ok, here is my fresh piece. Inner wrist to inner elbow, black only.



This is a piece I very laboured over for weeks after contemplating my design for years. I freehanded the design on paper and then re-made it in Illustrator, it turned out lovely and clear so the tattooist used the design just as it was, no alterations.
