Post your Tattoo pics :) and stories if you wish and lets talk INK .... - Page 2

post #31 of 38
I don't like having a tattoo that has no meaning to me either. Which is why I can't believe that I let my aunt and the tattoo artist talk me into getting it while she was getting her's done.

She's got some pretty neat ink. My favorite is the one she had done with me which is a sunflower on the top of her wrist and a vine winding around her wrist. All of her tattoos have meaning, but not deep meaning. She loves Eeyore so she has him Tattooed on her ankle, Sunflowers are her favorite flower, and Garfield is on her back sticking his little middle claw up at everyone.

She is thinking about getting something that I designed for her done pretty soon now that my cousin's were just born. It's a rose/quill dipping into an inkwell over a piece of parchment paper, and she want's all her neices (and now a new nephew!) written down in an old style writing.


Tattoos are addicting, I can't wait until I can afford my second one. I've decided to get a small Bean Bean done on my shoulder as soon as I find a good enough drawing or an artist to do it for me. And I decided also that after he crosses the bridge (although I hope I find the fountain of kitty youth before then!) that I would have little angel wings and a halo added to him.


I would love to turn my back into a Canvas but Cody isn't so agreeable with that. I can't imagine why though. But the other day I stuck it to him good, I told him that I wasn't going to let anyone tell me what I can and can't do with my own body! I'm not being in that kind of relationship again! Although I'm not so mean that I would do it just to spite him, his feelings do mean a lot to me, but I don't take "no" so well. There are much nicer ways to say it.

I know this thread is a tad older, but I'd like to show off my ink .


Here is my rabbit chest piece tattoo. My first tattoo, actually. It took 5 sessions & 1 year to complete and cost me around $1,200 with tips at completion. The rabbit in the center is my rabbit, Morgan. The rabbits on the sides are colored after Champagne D Argent rabbits (beautiful buns!) and the idea stemmed off of a rabbit necklace I found on the internet. My tattoo artist took the rabbit charm necklace and turned it into this original artwork....

Sorry about the glare....this picture was an hour or two after completion. I don't have any spot-on healed pictures.





And then this is my tattoo of my precious Zaide Katt. Zaide was 7 months old when he passed away (October 1st, 2008). A legit animal communicator said she feels he died of a seizure, which makes sense to me. Zaide's entire litter was rescued from a cat hoarder. The rescue has 2 of his litter mates still, or at least that I know they were still alive as of 6 months ago. One is blind, the other has severe bowel issues and almost had to be PTS multiple times. I don't want to go into detail about his death...it was quick and heartbreaking for me. He didn't suffer, but it was so tragic...he was gone within a few minutes. Zaide was a Persian mix. He was so special to me because he was dwarfed. He was about 2lbs when he died at 7 months old. My precious baby. I miss him so much. I chose tiger lilies because I called Zaide "My little tiger".

Here is my most recent. I have 8 and I don't have many good pictures of most of them, but I thought that this was the best pic I have. I got this one about 2 months ago and I LOVE it!

I know that this is an older thread, but I thought that I would post a couple of my tattoos.

This one is on my belly, I don't really like the way it fuzzed up on the edges. I got it on a whim and I shouldn't have. An apprentice did it, and it was poorly planned.



This one has been a work in progress that I have been adding too a bit at a time over the years. The lizard was first, then I got it shaded and refreshed and then two years ago, I got the flowers. I would like to add more flowers and vines to it until in goes up the side of my back and over my shoulder.

I have a few, and probably will be getting another soon, like within the next week or two.

My first was a Chevy emblem on my lower back - I got that one because I had wanted one since I was 14. I'm a Camaro girl at heart, been thinking about adding the Camaro emblem in the middle of it. It needs some love.

My next was a butterfly and a ring of vines around my left ankle. After that, I got stars and tribal on each hip. In March 2008 I got a griffin/griffon/gryphon on my right calf, takes up most of it. It's my biggest tatt so far and has a lot of significance - I got it after we got married, and "Griffin" is my married name.

In July of this past year, I got a phoenix on my left shoulder blade while in New Jersey. That one has a meaning to it as well.

My next one is either going to be a dragonfly tribute to Monte, who passed away at 11mos in June '08. He brought me a dragonfly he caught about 10 days before he died. Or I want paw prints walking up my ribs, probably from my hip up. That one will represent all my furbabies past and present.

I attached a pic of the phoenix, because thats the only one I have on hand at work right now
