    Please, spare me the "tattoos are tacky" or "I can't believe anyone would get them" talk. I wanted it, I got it, that's that.

    I just thought I would share that I finally bit the bullet and did it. :D I've done some crazy things. I've had a ton of piercings, both "permanent" and play, I've gotten micro-branding and cold branding and other various body modifications. I've wanted to take that step into getting inked since I was 16 but have waited for years. I've felt like such a pussy because I can do all these other crazy things but not a tattoo.

    Well, the local shop was doing some deals for Friday the 13th and I did it! My husband and I did it to be exact. No, no matching tattoo's, that spells doom for a marriage in our opinion, but we finally took that step together.

    He, being the dork that he is got NERD in binary on his shoulder and I got the phrase "Happiness is homemade" with a little rolling pin on my wrist. If you don't know, I'm in school to become a pastry chef. If you're interested in seeing a photo, here ya go!

    Feel free to share photos of yours too!

    I happen to think they are quite sexy too. What design do you have?

    That's cool. How many do you have already and what are you wanting to go for next?

    There's one that I would like but I need to find someone who could design it properly for me.

    LOL.


    I like the idea of a special promotion for Friday the 13th. In my contrary way, I always think of Friday the 13th as a lucky day.

    So do I. As far as my statement of doom... Neither of us know a single couple that has lasted after getting matching tattoos. It's weird but one of the things we agreed on when we got married.

    Nice, though I think I'd probably end up with something Lord of the Rings related. Just have to make sure you get something that fits you, otherwise you'll get tired of it.

    Yeah, a couple I'm friends with are wanting to get their wedding date tattoo'd, though I am trying to talk them out of it...

    I think it's a really pretty tatt. Nice one!

    I used to say I'd like them, but it wasn't very 'individual' as everyone had them etc. But, then I realised what a load of shit that was and I should get it done because I appreciated the art and because I just wanted them!

    Here are mine:

    The double headed lion is for my twin boys. I'm not in to astrology, but thought it was a cool representation for them being Leo.

    The hourglass/scythe represents the Grim Reaper.

    The other is my take of my/our existence in the universe.

    As long as you have them done because you're going to enjoy them and because they mean something to you, go for it!!!

    I like yours a lot StormRider666! Did you design them yourself or did you have someone else do them for you?

    Cheers!

    They're all designs I found. I'm not an artist, so couldn't have drawn them myself. I'm thinking of getting the artist who did the lion/hourglass to add a tribal scorpion to the lion as I'm scorpio and wanted it incorporating somehow.

    But I hope you've got the bug and get more done! :) xx

    Congrats Mittimer. Simple yet elegant and I like how you got something that represents something you're working towards a goal and career/interest/hobby.

    I design all types of tattoos for folks from simple things to intricate artwork, and I would LOVE to get some done on my upper arms/shoulders but I am faced with the problem of having body hair in those locations so it kinda kills the view...although I do have an idea for a solid black colored tattoo perhaps.

    I would love for you to design something for me, can you private message me if it's something you're interested in? I don't expect free work either. I can pay in money and/or things that make you fat. :p

    Sweeeet. It's wonderful that you got a tattoo after thinking about it for so long. I like tattoos so this is awesome to see.

    Yeah, matching tattoos would have been bad. Tattoos should be individual.

    I have two tattoos bus I have already shown both here a while back so it seems repetitive to get new photos.

    PM me Mittimer if you'd like something. I have some free time now that the house is completed. I'm actually re branding my services, trying to start an Etsy account, and am gonna go look around local shops and gallerias to see if anyone is looking for an artist or a place I can display my creations during the fall/winter.
