I see how this differs from ordinary feather tattoos, which you've also covered. There's typically some jewelry or symbol involved, aside from the feather. Voting this Up and Beautiful.

*AE, it is always great to have you come by. I send my many thanks. Yes, a people of great pride.

*Alastar, thanks again for coming by and for the comment. They look good on women's ankles for sure. I am pretty sure that is what it is. That was my guess.

*Alocsin, always great to see you. You got it. They are usually associated with Native American Indians jewels, stones, arrows, ect. The Indian feather gives you more options as a tattoo design then just a normal feather.

*Frank, always a pleasure. Yeah, they have some design similarities. I never thought about it like that.

*Bobbi, great to see you come by Bobbi. Thank you for the visit and your kind words. Thanks for everything.

Yes, I want MORE tattoos! I want an owl and a bow and I have the igemas picked out. All I need is a bunch of extra money. However, I've been wanting these tattoos for over three years, so I doubt I'll be getting them any time soon!I think you should just go for it. Get something on your upper thigh or your bum or another place that won't be seen at work. Just to see if you like having one.Also, literary tattoos are great if you want a tattoo that's not a cheesy design. You could get something with a cool script or font. "dafont.com" is a great font website. You could get a quote from your favorite book or a song you like. Just don't get the font too small. I have a tattoo with 12 point font and it's probably going to look like a black bar in 5 years.I just realized that this is quite long, so I'll stop giving you ideas! lolMabel
