I need inspiration. I have 2. I will have 3 by tomorrow. If they're not that identifying can I please see photos? Or descriptions?

More than happy to share - I love mine!
The Phoenix was after I split up with h and the tiger just because I finally found the right artist.
What have you got and what do you fancy?

Mungobungo Thu 02-Feb-17 17:43:03

You're having a tattoo tomorrow but haven't decided on a design?
Is that a good idea?

I have two but both took a lot of thought, design and mean a lot to me. Perhaps you need to rebook when you e made a decision on what piece of art you're going to put on your body to keep forever.

I'd agree with Mungobungo I spent a few years deciding what I wanted and making sure I was ready to have it on me permanently. It's a very personal one, which means something to me but isn't necessarily obvious to anyone else.

CharlieDimmocksbosoms Thu 02-Feb-17 17:46:38

Ah don't worry Mungo I know what I'm having tomorrow! This is for next time grin

gin I love your tiger. Is the black bird a Phoenix? I'm on my phone. It's hard to make out.

GinismyTonic Thu 02-Feb-17 17:51:04

It is a Phoenix and is picked out in purple around the black although I don't think the pic does it justice. I also have a dragon on my hip but it's over 20 years old and is a little fuzzy round the edges smile

GinismyTonic Thu 02-Feb-17 17:51:35

So actually, that pic was prior to the purple!

This is my most recent on my thigh. I've got 7 altogether including a dreamcatcher on back of neck / upper back and the inevitable teenager-of-the-90s lower back tribal

PixieMiss Thu 02-Feb-17 18:10:57

They are mine. Second picture is terrible I know!

Stormwhale Thu 02-Feb-17 18:17:20

The others are too identifying, but this is my butterfly on my shoulder.

SexLubeAndAFishSlice Thu 02-Feb-17 18:18:41

This is mine, I only had it done at the end of November. It represents my daughter (the poppy) and a baby I never had (the butterfly). If I have another baby then I'll get something added to it smile

Sorry for bad lighting and my cellulite smile

It was a coverup, I had a horrid faded thing that I stupidly had gotten in my teens and I'd hated it for years, I spents years trying to find a design I liked but in the end I just told the tattooist to do whatever he wanted, figuring worse can happen is I won't like it, but anything would look better than what it was covering.

I loved it the minute I saw it. I had planned to have it extended all the way down but honestly, the bit I had done hurt like fuck and I don't think I could do it again smile

GinismyTonic Thu 02-Feb-17 18:23:40

I love these! They are so personal aren't they

ememem84 Thu 02-Feb-17 18:24:32

This is mine.

Mamabear14 Thu 02-Feb-17 18:28:05

These are most of mine, I've got another on the bottom of my back but I haven't got a decent pic of that.

KathArtic Thu 02-Feb-17 18:31:13

Gin The tiger is amazing. I struggled to work out where it was to start with, I thought 'she's got funny legs' blush

ApollO88 Thu 02-Feb-17 18:33:49

Photo of my current WIP

GinismyTonic Thu 02-Feb-17 18:34:15

Haha Kath! It was the most pain I've ever been in

notMarlene Thu 02-Feb-17 18:35:27

Place marking. Shall come back later under a name change.

pictish Thu 02-Feb-17 18:43:10

You need inspiration when you have a tattoo booked for tomorrow?

Way to go in getting some random nonsense you're going to end up wishing you'd not bothered with. Good one.

PixieMiss Thu 02-Feb-17 18:45:55

RTFT pictish...

reddevil2811 Thu 02-Feb-17 18:47:14

This is my realism piece on my thigh.

pictish Thu 02-Feb-17 18:48:36

Ah I see. Phew!

I like tattoos but only exceptional ones...the vast majority I see are crap.

BabyTheCaveLion Thu 02-Feb-17 18:51:43

This is my Ayla and Baby smile

(Is that too crap for you Pictish hmm )
