  • I don't have any tattoos, currently, but I'll eventually be getting full sleeve tattoos on both arms from my shoulders to my fingertips, as well as a tattoo on my calf and one over my heart. Possibly even a large tattoo across my shoulders on my back as well. However, not to be too coy, but it holds a very personal and very spiritual meaning for me (non-religious though). It's something that speaks to the core of who I am, but I am not ready to share it with the world yet. I guess when I get them (my full sleeves in particular), the world will know then, but until that time, I'll keep it for me only. 😊 Now, if only I can get the money together for them. lol

  • I got my only tattoo at 21 and it was during a very difficult time in my life. I used to dread waking up in the morning because of depression and when I strengthened my relationship with God, I found happiness in ways I never understood before. It's my favorite Bible verse that got me through a dark time and every time I look at it, I remember that God saved me. It strange that a tattoo can give you so much strength and healing

    • That's really heartwarming.

      Depression is so very debilitating. I admire you for trusting and relying on Gods strength.

    • Thank you very much :) He's just such a constant presence and never abandons you in your time of need. It's funny because my tattoo appointment kept getting postponed and I would keep making changes to design. It's almost like it was meant to be lol

    • That's very true. When you no longer have the strength to go on, God's strength can get you through any difficult time. Gods bless you ❀

  • It's small but I love it.
    I want to get an arrow tattoo with a purple bow tied to it next.

  • I don't have any tattoos but I do want to get one when my finances can warrant spending money on getting permanent art on my body. The Tattoo i want to get is a Wyrm dragon forming itself into a Yin & Yang symbol.

    The reasoning behind the design is I enjoy the concept of what the Yin & Yang represent: Balance. I also enjoy enjoy martial arts and balance is something that is heavily weighed into the training.

  • My first is the symbol of the special forces unit in which I served. I bled with these men. They are my brothers in arms even if some of them are assholes.
    My 2nd is the face of a Krayt Dragon. The Mandalorian symbol from Star Wars. Star Wars is not just another film franchise for me. It is part of my life.

  • Miss fit, i don't like tattoos and don't know why people have them on their bodies...

    There are papers on which someone can draw and be an artist, why not keeping the body fresh and clean...

  • They symbolize that I care more about having pretty pictures on my skin than attracting the best mate or getting the best job i can. I have no direction in life and success minded people should not choose me as a mate. I spent this money on non removable pictures instead of investing for my future.

  • I hope to get an Iron Cross on my left arm and a Confederate battle flag/St. Andrews Cross on my right. The Iron Cross is a traditional German military symbol, used extensively from 1871-1945 in Germany as a sort of Medal of Honor equivalent. The St. Andrew’s Cross is a reminder of my Ulster-Scots roots; both of these combined will remind me to serve my country well and to make my ancestors proud of me. Lastly, I hope to get the red dragon of St. George tattooed onto my chest to show that whoever steals the shriveled, numb throbby thing stuck in my ribcage will have my protection.

  • I plan on drawing my own tattoo reminding me of how strong and lucky I've always been. Strong because I never gave in to depression and lucky because I have people who love me.
