Okay! I'll play!
(excuse the dry skin)
My 2nd tattoo... it's a 'ring' of Elvish around my ankle with freehand foliage drawn through it, symbolizing the love we share as cut a path through life. (George has the same Elvish as a 'ring' around his bicep, but with cracked stone... to him, our love is written in stone. It may become weathered and aged, but will always endure)
Front ("V" of foliage points down directly in the centre of the front):
The script is the Elvish love poem (NOT the evil "One Ring" poem from Tolkien's books).
It says "One ring to show our love, One ring to bind us. One ring to seal our love and forever to entwine us." (Hence why it's a ring around my ankle, and around George's arm)
I had a major allergic reaction to the cream to help this tattoo heal. It healed kinda funny, so I've got to get it touched up, and I want it to have more depth. Not sure what to do to it though.
My first tattoo... so ashamed. I don't have pictures of it right now. It was a sunflower straight off the wall of pictures in the tattoo shop. I loved it at first, but when I saw another woman with the EXACT same tattoo, in the same PLACE on her body only 2 months later, I knew it didn't scream 'me' as much as I'd wanted it to. It's being covered over in the next year with original art.
~ I have 3 earring holes in each ear (though I usually only wear one),
~ I used to have the top of my ear done, but it was done with an earring gun through the cartilage and it never healed. So I let it close after a year. (I was stubborn!)
~ I pierced my nose with a tiny stud when I lived in Dublin 13 years ago, and I've never been without one ever since. Most of the time I forget it's there, unless someone comments on the little sparkle.
Pretty tame, compared to the BEAUTIFUL artwork on this thread. But it's a start! lol.
Does anyone know - can you tattoo over scars very well? I'm getting a tummy tuck done (hopefully within a year) to remove excess skin now that I've lost all my excess weight. I'd love to have a "belt" of a tattoo, rather than see a belt of a visible scar forever. Know what I mean? Anyone hear of this being done?
