jumping in - my tattoo

I'm 47  I got this around the time I turned 40

My mom was really really sick (dying) and while caring for her I kept having recurring dreams about having a tattoo on my hip...never thinking of having a tattoo ever before.  The pattern emerged as stylized flowers, jacobean....

After she died, I was cleaning out her hope chest and found my very first crewelwork done when I was in my early teens - I was in shock and very upset so I didn't keep it - but I couldn't believe that was the thing that I saw being tattooed. 

So a little while after she died, I drew this up and had it done...

it's sort of an Aubrey Beardsley design that i hope to contiue into a half sleeve when i get money and the chance to go back to portland, oregon.

sorry it's sideways. i'm lazy at computer junk.

The first thing I thought before I even read the text was that it looked like something Aubrey Beardsley would do.   Tongue  I like it!

So, my mother was putting off getting a tattoo for 6 years and she finally set a date.  My sister came to me saying, "She's not gonna do it... so we should make her..."  So, the day of her birthday, we told her that we were getting our tattoos.  I did the research and got the hieroglyphs for mother and sister and made vector images of them.  Here they are:

Mommy got her's on the belly because as a mother-to-be she was always holding it.

Me and my sis got ours after here (just in case she tried to make a run for it.

I wanted mine to look like it was chiseled into my skin so it required more detail than their's.

It was a nice way to celebrate our family.  Too bad dad is afraid of needles.

I was supposed to get a tattoo on the night of my wedding but we didnt have enough money because my ex husband wanted a full armband .... so he got his...then it was suddenly trashy for women to get tattoos especially the large phoenix I wanted ....
we didnt last for many reasons and divorced in 2003 the night after our talk my sister in law and I decided to go get tattoos, I knew what I wanted a phoenix to symbolize my new life   Grin It took 2 hours and didnt hurt like I had imagined it would .....
2 years later the next chapter in my life began, my baby girl was born I couldnt think of a more fitting place than above my phoenix for her name, so I had it added along with the "smoldering ashes"
