      Seems I have missed a lot being away. My granddaughters love Hello Kittty and I remember when my daughter was a child, we had a birthday party in the theme of Hello Kitty. I would have never thought that people get these as tattoos though.

      Voted Way up

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Now this is all cute and such but I would think that these kind of tattoos would look rather childish. Maybe not while the women are young but can you picture Hello Kitty on an 80 year old woman???? Passing this on as always. I've got quite an album of your tattoos on my Pinterest.

      These are certainly colorful and adorable, but it's hard to imagine a man getting one.

      My favorite was the one for a diabetic as it not only looks good, but can be very functional at alerting emergency medical personnel to the fact that a person has diabetes.

      Amazing how many different designs there are for Hello Kitty characters. Love the fact that you included so many photos.

      Voted up across the board except for funny.

      Hub Hugs,
