I did a "search" for tattoo threads but they seemed either personal or months old so rather than bumping up an older thread I figured I'd make a personal one as well. Anyone is free to post theirs too. I'm a big tattoo and piercing lover... I love the pain of them, the look, the feel, the power of self-expression through body art/modification. I thought I'd share a bit of my own work and on Wednesday I'll have a new one to add to my collection.
I currently have 6 tattoo's and 9 piercings.
This first pic shows my neck tribal the best, I've got a better angle for my tribal wings. The name between the wings is "KAI" which is my son's name. If I have any more children, their names will go below his.
This was an armband I had done in memory of my brother. :( It's still unfinished, having his name drawn up in 'tag' letters trying to get the exact way he used to 'tag' things.
These are my tribal wings. I drew them myself. ;) I know the picture is really small I've been meaning to get someone to get a better picture.
Another one I need to get a better picture of, but it's a green fairy on my lower back. <3 This one hurt the worst but the needles kept hitting nerves that made me laugh through the entire thing.
Tribal tattoo I drew up. This was my first tattoo and it's on my wrist.
Aaaaand finally this is a preview of what I'm getting done and it's going on my chest. I'll take pictures when it's done.
This tattoo is a reminder of "gaming" life, a VERY good friend of mine I talk to online (via Teamspeak) we've been chatting almost every day until recent over the computer. He's helped me through tough situations so this is a symbolism of my friendship, even though very long-distance, means the world to me.
I have 6 in my ear just regular earrings in them for now won't be stretching them past 18gauge so no pt. in me taking pics. :P
I have 1 in my belly button. It was cute before I had my son.. but I'm a little shy to post a pic thx to stretch marks.
I also have my lip and septum pierced. Can't see my lip ring since it's blurry pic and I only have a stud in, if I had a hoop or horseshoe in it would be more noticeable. The septum ring is crooked in this pic since I had gotten it done that day, the swelling hadn't come down.
I have endless idea's for more tattoos! I have two friends that have passed :( that I'd like to have memorials done for just thinking of what reminds me of them that would fit as artwork. And since my recent fascination with Betta's, I'd love to get a Betta tat at some point. <3
