Tattoos!
« 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.

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

Ive got a delta on my right wrist to stand for change! And Im never getting another one because this ones 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 Im 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

 ::) 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 Ive 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 The last of the good guys 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.
