I have two tattoos (currently).

I have a fair sized Welsh dragon on my right shoulder blade.  Just because Wales is heaven on earth.  I remember going to our tiny school library in highschool to search for a book about Wales, I don't remember what pipped my interest.  They didn't have one, of course, I grew up in tiny town Pennsylvania USA.  It was just the beginning of the internet though, so I was able to start looking around a bit online.. and I was hooked.  In university I answered the Sirens call and spent a semester at the University of Wales at Swansea.  I was back a year later looking for a nice Welsh husband.  I met a lovely English lawyer at a YHA in Snowdonia (close enough), and we were married three years later.  

On the inside of my right pelvic bone I have a simple crescent moon about four inches long.  The first time I kissed my lovely English lawyer was on a camping trip, under a full moon in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  And the crescent moon is my favorite shape.  

At some point in the next few years I plan to get another tattoo to represent my two boys, Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia) and Linden (Tilia).  Maybe the two leaves entwined?  Maybe wrapped in a circle (sort of ying-yang 'ish)?  Not sure exactly.  Not sure where I'll put it at either!  I'm a teacher, so need to preserve some sore of professionalism.  I'd like them as a higher up arm band.. but some of my work summer dresses would still show them.

What do you have?  What's the story?

    Afraid I'm not keen on tattoos and don't have any.  When I was about 15 I wanted to have my head shaved and have purple butterflies tattooed on my head, but fortunately I grew out of that image

    My son had a tattoo on his arm when he worked in the music business, but he regrets it now. 

    If other people want tattoos it's entirely up to them, but it's not for me. image

    My son has started talking about tattoos, I'm not a fan.

    I always wonder where my tattoos would have ended up. Round about my knees somewhere.

    My eldest GD has one hidden on her hip.  It is supposed to say something profound Im sure in Italian, but I told her it says 'spaghetti bologenese  and garlic bread twice, please ?'   She didn't see the funny side image

    No EDD that's my spelling.  I did change it but I guess I got it wrong anyway. It didn't come up on spell checker. image   Might as well have your numbers on here today,

    Personally I don't don't like them, I think about people who were forced to have themimage

    My FIL had a lot on his arms that he had done overseas when in the army and I only caught a glimpse of them once as he always wore long sleeved shirts.

    My SIL has a rose on her outer thigh and my OH told her the stem(poking below her shorts) looked like a varicose vein  image

    Runny your post made me laugh image

    KEF.  image  varicose vein is funny too. image   I don't like em myself, but each to their own.   Do you think Cheryl Coles backside will look attractive when things start to go South ?    When she cries her tears look like diamonds.  The B????? image

    CharlieN.  No, EDD collects them. They are from the Daily Mail Bingo game. 

    Edd.  Just seen it....complane.... Doh! 

  • I change my mind so much I'm glad that I never had a tattoo because I'm sure that I would hate it and myself for having one if I had.

    When I was I the motor racing world everyone got their name, blood group, and any allergies tattoo'd on their wrist. It's the only tattoo I'd ever considered.
