Title: Tattoos!
Post by: Mara-la on December 20, 2018, 08:09:04 AM
So I think the last time a topic was made about this was a while ago when the most of us were still kids and had very different views. I just thought it'd be fun to post tattoos that you've gotten over the years (assuming they're in appropriate places), and if you don't have a tattoo but you're thinking of maybe getting one, you can talk about it here!

I'm thinking of getting one but I want it to be something important to me so I'm debating really hard what I should get.

I've been thinking more about getting a tattoo lately. Maybe a bunny or a cockatiel. Or a mermaid. Idk yet. But I'd like to get it somewhere I could see it, like my arm.

I currently have 5 tattoos, 4 of which are fairly large. I definitely want to get more, but I have to be an adult and pay bills and rent and stuff so all my money goes there -_-
Someday, though...

I have none, and no plans for getting any. It might be interesting, if I had something specific in mind.

6 O.o that's awesome! What are they?
Uhh my first tat is on my right shoulder and its two birds carrying a red string that I got when I was 16
The next was two paw prints on my inner wrist that I got before starting college/after my dog died
Then I have the rune Ehwaz on my right ankle I got that in my second semester of college
I have 'Have Courage' and a butterfly on my right forearm and my sister has 'Be Kind' to match it on her collar bone, I got that the summer after freshman year I think?
Next is the word Mālama on my left ribs which is Hawaiian for preserve/protect. I got that in Hawaii after my sophomore year
And laaaast/most recent is an alien head on my hip that I got on friday the 13th last year

The one I'm planning to get is a hammerhead shark jaw on the inside of my elbow and i'm so hecking hype. I also want to get 'tutaonana tena' somewhere, cuz my friends from my study abroad all planned to get it and one of them just did! So now I really want it lmao. And one of my best friends and I want to get matching white lotus tile tattoos from ATLA

Iíve got a delta on my right wrist to stand for change! And Iím never getting another one because this oneís only like an inch tall and low pain tolerance + anxiety + needle phobia still meant I threw up right in front of the poor tattoo artist and otherwise had a Bad Time. Love my tattoo but Iím not eager to repeat the experience, haha

Lol, Pan, that's one of the reasons I don't have any tattoos yet. When I got my ears pierced I passed out, and I'm not sure I'd make it through a tattoo session  XD

What type of ear piercing did you get? I just got your standard earlobe one and it just felt like a paper cut, this is coming from someone who has a really low pain threshold
Title: Re: Tattoos!
Post by: Echo :) on February 05, 2019, 03:25:25 PM
 ::) Yeah... so I just have standard lobe piercings... and I swear I have a really high pain tolerance, but I start thinking about all the technical stuff, like holes in my ears... and then I don't do so hot  ;D

I have three small tattoos, one of a violin on my collarbone, one of an ankh on my left wrist, and an eye of Horus on my right ankle. The violin Iíve had for I think maybe 2 years now, I got it when my cousin died because he played violin and I wanted to commemorate him. The ank and eye of Horus I got together, I was only planning on getting the eye at first but then my artist offered to do the other one for like $10 at the same time so I took it. Those ones are mostly protection and good vibes and stuff. I really wanna get something Greek (maybe a line from my fave Greek tragedy) and I want to get the words ďThe last of the good guysĒ eventually somewhere. I also wanna get a flower tattoo with my best friend, each of us getting our fave flowers

^^ Greek tattoos are always a good idea

Someday I'll get Persephone on my other thigh. Someday.

Any reason for the elephant? (Elephants are awesome)

Ok this is gonna sound super lame but I had a lot of spare time these last few days because Iíve been on flights and stuff and Iíve thought of a tattoo I want but it would only work if I can rope my brother and three cousins into it. Thing is, we grew up like 500 meters from each other, and were always together, so it would be cool if we each got a numerical tat to represent our birth order, and each of us can style our number to be in our own style since all of us have very different ways of carrying ourselves. THE OTHER ONE is one that I defs havenít thought through and Iím not even sure how to go about it, but Iím thinking I want a tat tied in with this forum somehow because of how much of an impact on my life itís had. I literally would not be who I am now if it wasnít for this place and the people and all that, so I want something to show that. Idk what yet. But itís something Iíve been thinking of.

Elephants are my favorite animal, I spent time in Africa and met a baby elephant while there, my grandpa collected elephant figurines and now I own them all because he passed. The elephant is to honor him and will have strawberry vines and daisies around the tusks and bottom because thatís how my grandma decorated her kitchen (with LOTS of strawberry stuff) and her favorite flowers are daisies.

On my other thigh I want to get a tattoo for my momís parents (the elephant is my dadís parents). My grandma loves clowns and a few years ago my grandpa sat for an artist to be painted as a hobo clown holding a yellow rose. So I want to get that painting sized down and on my thigh, my grandpa as a hobo clown, holding a yellow rose. Itís a really cool painting and my grandma cried really hard when he gave it to her 🥰🥰🥰 When they went on their first date he gave her a yellow rose because he wanted her to know that she was first and foremost his best friend (yellow roses symbolize friendship)

I love the clown tattoo idea!! That's going to be beautiful.

I have 3 tattoos.  2 are stick n pokes.  One of the stick n pokes is a set of overlapping squares on my upper thigh, given to me by a friend.  The other I gave myself.  It's on my ankle, it's just the word, "femme?".  It signifies my struggle with gender identity and expression, but I was very drunk when I did it so i kind of want to cover it up with something else honestly lol.

My "real" tattoo (the only one that isn't stick n poke) was done by a dear friend of mine.  I told her she could tattoo anything she wanted on me.  She did an abstract dog on my arm.

Yasss Patt get a gay tattoo pls.

So there's this soda in KY called Ale8 One, also called "a late one," and I'm from the town where it's made and I'm also addicted to it and I think it would be hilarious and trashy and awesome if I got a tattoo that said "a late one".  I think I'm gonna do it.

I've come to the realization that I do, in fact, want a tattoo, so now the question is: do I show the world just how Obnoxiously Catholic I am by getting religious art as my first tattoo, or do I start off with my pets first?
