      The only issue I have with this tattoo is that it's too much associated with one holiday. It looks out of place other times of the year. Voting this Up and Beautiful.

      I really love the way you go into such detail about not just the design of a tattoo but the meaning. "Make sure that you completely understand what your tattoo represents and stands for." As with all your advice, this is don't want to get a tattoo you think is "cute" only to find out it has some sinister meaning.

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting. You always have the best pictures of your tattoos!

      Really wanted to see the Pumpkin tats, Ricky. You didn't disappoint. Yes, perhaps the scary ones should be smaller on the men. Lots for an artist to work with too on them. Nice one my friend Up and Interstin' as always. Are you ever going to do a series on demon tats?

      I like the small tattoos on the nape of the neck or the arm. Those are quaint and symbolic...the ones that are a bit big are kind of scary, but beautiful as well! Thanks for sharing the symbolism!! Shared as well!

      I was wondering what kind of tattoos would be seen there today. Have to say that some of them are a little scary, but I do like the small, plain ones on the heel of the foot.
