    Hey, hubbers,

    Is 2010 and i notice more and more people with tattoos on there body, i have to admit i do have more then a few tattoos.

    I feel that society's are more open minded now-end-days to people being a little "funkey". I in the other hand love inking my body, is a way of feeling complete with my self...is weird but is just does.

    I have a right sleeve tattoo and working on my left sleeve (:

      I have 16, last count if i remember correctly. They are all black ink & all have a meaning. They are all on my upper arms, shoulders & on the insides of my forearms. My wife has 6 tattoos & I like them a lot.

      If i had more spare money i would definitely get more...

      I've got one.  Now that I am older I see the error in my own judgement at the time.  I reject the tattoo but it serves as a reminder that the body was not meant for a billboard.  Throughout history groups and societies have rebelled through the means of shaving heads and/or tattoos and also mutilation of the body.  Of course this is not the reason or intent of all who have tattoos but was mine at the time twenty years ago.

      I have 7 tattoos and want a lot more, just don't have the money for them! My husband is covered with tattoos. I happen to like tattoos, I think most of them are beautiful and it takes a lot of talent to be able to tattoo such intricate detail on someone's skin. Everyone has their own opinion on them, but do what you want with your own body and don't judge me for mine!

      I have a tattoo on my foot of four wolf paws.  I love that tattoos have such a rich history, and that it's a source of identity and symbolic of a time in life.  I was really going through an ordeal at the time, and saw no way to turn things around.  Then the idea of a tattoo popped into my head.  It wasn't the first time I thought of getting a tattoo, but  I was very serious about it when I got it.  I love my tattoo, it's placement, and it's symbolism....in fact, it made me want to get more!

      Personally, I do have them. I think there's an amount where it gets to be too much. I don't think there is anything wrong with them. BUT depending on your job, tattoos are considered unperfessional. and 9 out of 10 times the person without the VISIBLE tattoos is hired.

    I have 2 very special goal and plan to get one for them.

    The other one I just really want big_smile

    Places got one on my neck- vines and hearts.

    Want to get one behind my ear, on my hip bone, 4th one not sure.

    I also want one down my spine...not sure yet.

    I love them. The natives of the island where I was born believed in tattoos and I'm part of one them, that is Carib.

    But I like the idea of getting them based on something VERY special.

    Ha, had to lay down on the table when they pierced my bellybutton. It didn't hurt but the thought of the size of that needle, hehe.

    The tattoo gun really isn't much like a needle at all more like carpet burn.

    pierced bellybutton

    gah yikes

    good for you smile

    those are pretty sexy, i have to say. i may just get a tiny butterfly on my shoulder. i know that is tame but that creature speaks to me in many ways. i guess everyone gets a butterfly though, hmm? maybe i will get the Chinese character for "butterfly" that would be kind of different.

    lynnechandlerposted 13 years ago

    you get what you like. I started with a GA Peach on my left shoulder, went back a week later and had the belly button pierced and a rose with a heart shaped leaf done on my right hip. A year later I went back for the major art.

    My tramp stamp though I hate that description is a psychedelic mushroom from the Grateful Dead era with a half naked pixie on top. It is complete with a grassy area that the mushroom seems to thrive from. That one took 4 hrs to complete as it had to be created. I had two different pictures the dude merged to create the one and it is quite colorful.

    The final one came when my divorce from monster man became final in '06. It is a lady bug on a leaf on my right ankle.

    I have a sun and moon encompassed into 'one circle' with the rays of the sun out-lining the whole..on my inner ankle
    This is very symbolic to me FOREVER..and it never loses it's importance, nor my love of it.
    To me, tats are very personal and special. Though, I've witnessed an array of difference..
    I can happily say, I had a vision and waited for a few years to do it.. knowing it would be permanent. And I have not ever regretted a day... smile

      I don't care if people want tattoos, but I agree with you.
      Why do people think they are sexy? And how come so many people say they "love" their tattoos? Can you show love for a tattoo by forgiving it, or helping it through a difficult situation, or doing something nice for it?

    I have three.  My first was the phases of the moon around my left ankle.  About a year later, I had a tattoo artist freehand an anklet of thorns just below the moons.  The last one is the the Norse bindrune meaning "balanced joy" on the back of my neck.  I'm not planning any more right now, but I'm not ruling out the possiblity that I might change my mind later in life.

    I am totally do not get the tatoo thing.  I wanted one one time but spent 6 months trying to decide on what to get, where to put it etc...  Finally never ended up getting one.  How do you finally decide on something gonna be with you rest of your life.  Too much thinking involved for me.

    I know a lot of celebrities who are sporting henna tattoos and even ink tattoos.. from rock stars to actresses and models..

    Some people assume that tattooed people are messy and ungrounded individuals but for me, tattooing is not a definition of ones personality because it is an art and outlet for self expression.

    I think it's cool and fashionable! But, If i have to have a tattoo, I would prefer it to be a henna tattoo because its temporary and I can wear different designs every time..
