    Do you have a tat? Where and what does it mean to you? How long did it take? Did you design it?:cool:

    I have seven tats.

    Outer left ankle - I have an eye with a tear falling from with, and the tear has a peace symbol in it. I got that in memory of my brother Mark. He designed it himself 20 years ago, he just was never aware it would be a tattoo someday. :tongue:

    Right bicep - the japanese symbol for love. I got it with an ex boyfriend, we both got the same tattoo in the same place... 'cept mine is red and his is blue.

    Left bicep - my sons first and middle name. The tattoo artist drew it up for me. I just told him that I wanted it pretty without being too girly or illegible.

    Chest, above left breast - the japanese symbol for soul. It was my first tattoo, and it was one of the pre-drawn things they have on display at the tattoo parlor. I got it over my heart for the "heart and soul" effect.

    Left shoulder blade - the symbol for aries.

    Right shoulder blade - the symbol for pisces.

    Right shoulder blade (under the symbol) - the pisces ambigram (where a word is written so it looks the same right side up as it does upside down.)

    I have plans for 2-3 more tats, but absolutely no idea when I'll be able to afford to get any of them. I love ambigrams though. *sigh* Ambigrams - Welcome To WowTattoos.com - More Than 1000 Ambigram Tattoos For Download

    i dont have any tatts myself but i love the armband style ones on a guy.......sometimes i think if a guy has too many its like disfigurement and they tend to become less cool in my eyes.......i like simple things in life...and to me a simple single tatoo says more as a statement than a dozen or so all over different parts of the body.

    I have a blue and black Ulysses butterfly on my lower back and off to one side.
    The tattoo artist was a lady and she designed it.
    It took as long as it took me to drink 1/3 of a bottle of Makers Mark.

    I have two.
    One tiny tat on my inner ankle that I always forget about. In fact, I forgot what the symbol was supposed to mean.

    Another on my inner wrist, it's a combo of things (a heart, bull symbol, and a fleur de lis looking thingy), seems convoluted but is unique and looks kinda cool.

    Never did, never will, although I've helped design one for a friend.

    No. If I ever did, it would have to be something of exceptional personal meaning, and a design that I would be willing to have on my skin for the rest of my life.

    Nothing so far has motivated me to get one.

    No, I don't have one and more than likely never will. I've never liked tatoos until recently when I saw one on a very sexy man and I just flipped for it...found it to be soooooo sexy because it represents something to him and because of where he placed it.

    I have a few, all on my upper body. I think that's the best way to go, because I can dress up with the best of them without anyone having to see, but when shirtless I can let it all hang out. It was just a bodily adornment thing for me. I have a long torso and thought it looked kind of boring.

    Just got my first tatt finished this week. I changed my avatar to the image.

    Took two sessions one 2.5h and the other around 2h (i think).
