Tattoo Me


I started with one, telling myself that was all I'd get.  It's a butterfly with a vine around it in the shape of a heart and it's on the small of my back.  I got my second one a few years later, the words "Be who you are" on the front of my ankle.  They're the first four words in my favorite quote, "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ~Dr. Seuss.

I talked about my third tattoo a few months back, my wedding date on my wrist.  I plan on getting it covered up next month with a tree of life tattoo that a friend of mine is drawing for me.  It will look something like this:

And although I once told myself I'd only stop at one tattoo, obviously that hasn't held up.  Because now I can't decide when enough is enough.  I just love them too much and I love what each one represents to me (hence the reason I plan to cover up my wedding date tattoo rather than remove it - that relationship was part of me just as the tattoo is).

Here are a few other tattoo ideas that I love:

Harry Potter
Only I'd love for mine to say "Until the very end"

A stack of books on the back of my neck

Monte's paw print on the top of my foot

And that's just to name a few!

Do you have tattoos?  If you don't, do you want one?

I love the little paw print!

I basically have a pain tolerance of 0; therefore, tattoos are TOTALLY out of the question for me! :P


I've got 3, although they're all really tiny. 1 on each wrist, and a small butterfly on my hip (and I'm terrified of butterflies beyond belief. Figure that one out. I had just finished high school and was away with a group of friends and I think it was like, an "I'm freeeeee" type thing. But I don't regret it, so I guess that's the important thing!)
I actually liked the feeling of getting tattoos on my wrist, it didn't hurt to me. Maybe that's weird..

I don't have or want any tattoos, but I can certainly appreciate them on others. I LOVE that you're considering a Harry Potter tattoo! Ah, gives me chills!

I have 4 tattoos, and love each one of them. I have the words love and promise on the inside of my ankles, 4 intertwinded hearts on the top of my foot representing my 3 sisters and I, and a cross on the back of my neck. Each one reminds me of something very special to me. I LOVE the pawprint idea! SO cute!


I like the Harry Potter one!!


I don't have any tattoos, mostly because I'm too chicken... Just looking at that last picture of a fresh one makes my shoulder hurt! Still, I think that they can be really awesome of done right. That tree looks like it would make a great one!


Oh until the very end would be neat!

I have 2, one on wrist that says resilient, one on foot that says my sons name & one on ass cheeks lol sounds ugly but it's cute it's 2 small hearts overlapping one another & it only shows in swim suits.

I want my side done too!

Impulsive Addict

I have 2 tattoos. I plan on getting another one with Emma's name but I can't decide where. I like the wrist idea but I also thought about the side of my foot which will hurt like bloody hell.

I love the paw print one. I love my husband and we've been together for 12 years but as soon as I tattoo something related to our relationship, we'll get a divorce. I'm not even superstitious.

I think you should get a sleeve tattoo. ;)

The tree of life tattoo would be a cool idea - I've always wanted a tattoo, but I keep changing my mind what I want so I'm still tattooless! lol

Mrs. Pancakes

the tree will be lovely..i have always wanted a tattoo but never did get it..,

Candace Stevenson

whoa, that aw is really cute! Looks a little painful, but cute

I love the idea of the paw print. I only have one (a blue bird on my right side) but I really want to get a wolf on my back.


The tree of life is very cool.

I'm not a tattoo girl - my skin is too sensitive and too rash prone.

I love tattoos and I will someday have at least one. I am 32 years old and have yet to get one, but I will! I love the stack of books idea. And the tree of life is so pretty.


I always think tats on others are so cool and most of the time very meaningful for them. I've never found one I wanted enough though to permantly ink on myself. BUT, my husband and I used a Paper Tongues tune for our last dance song back in April and one of the lines was, "Better is the day standing by your side" or BITDSBYS. Both he and I can be pretty conservative but we both loved the acronym and think if either of us ever got one, it'd be that on our wrists!

Jessie Szmanda

I have 2 tattoos. A scene of dolphins on my back with Faith on one Hope on the other and Love in the middle. Than on my wrist I have Trust, to remind myself to Trust in God. I LOVE tattoos and can't wait to get another.


I don't think I could get one...but I love that little paw!

Tracy-Girl @ Then I Got To Thinking

I have heard of tatoos being addicting - I love all of yours! ;) I would love to get one, but I don't know what I would get!

Vanisha @ Vanisha's Life In...Australia

The stack of books would be so fitting, especially for you. I don't have any, mostly because I haven't been able to come up with anything. Maybe when we have kids. My husband has a few and I love them on him :)


you just got a picture message of my tattoos, except one and i'm FAR from being done. i want one on my foot/ankle, maybe one on the inside of my arm, one on my wrist and one under my boob with a lyric that hits right to my heart (hence where it will be placed) i'm a tattoo addict and don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

i find tattoos absolutely mesmorizing and if they have a specific meaning, even better. the ones for no reason, i don't understand. my first one ha no real reason behind it except my stance on freedom of being an adult..i've since updated it to mean something more and be more a part of who i am.

can't wait to see this one done.

the books totally seem like you. just say'n. but in a color would be better.. with maybe a quote from one of your favorite books on the page.. ugh i have so many ideas when it comes to tattoos i'd run out of space on my body!

love you!

When I was 19 I really wanted a tattoo of a cross on my ankle. Just a tiny little thing. Then the guy told me it was $50 and I said, heck no! (I was super poor then) haha

Sometimes I think I want a single word on the inside of my wrist in white, but just don't think I can go through with it.

I absolutely LOVE the tree of life-it's going to look gorgeous on you!


I love the books! :) So cute!

I have an initial!


The tree of life is a great idea and I love the Harry Potter tat! I don't have a tattoo. I want one though haha. I'm still contemplating if I should get one. If I do, I want something special.

P.S. Thank you for the birthday greeting!

Lots of love, B

I have FIVE TATTOOS that I had done when I was 18-19. I HATE THEM ALL NOW and wish I had listened to my mom when she told me I would regret it someday!! ONly one of those tats was planned ahead of time and it is the only one I like. The others were like "I think I want to get a tattoo tonight" and then I proceeded to pick one out of a book and have it permanently inked. WTF was I thinking??!!! NEVER AGAIN!! They are only cool when thought and meaning is put into them and very careful consideration.


I have a butterfly on my right foot. I love it.

I don't have any tattoos but I'm afraid I'd get tired of seeing the same thing so that's why I've never got one.


Oh, do I ever. I really want a German quote on my inner wrist but I haven't found the right one just yet. And I have to keep it short because I have small wrists and German words are kind of big so it's been challenging!

I love the tree of life! SOOOO beautiful!
