Nice tattoos, y'all. I don't have any, (my crew would probably fall over if I ever did that), but my daugher does. She has a shamrock on the small of her back, and a lotus flower on the nape of her neck. And, she wants more. My son is thinking about getting one. He's been working on a design of his own. It involves a Celtic cross, with a few differences. Who knows, maybe for my 50th birthday, (still a few years down the road from now), I'll get one. Might be kind of fun, as a milestone, (see, I have plans on living to at least 100, so long as I have my mind, and at least some of my health. I just want to kind of wind down, like an old watch).

I won't! But it might not be until later tonight, since I have to pull them off my desktop... on the laptop now.

I have a rose on my right shoulder blade. I got it in '91 from my friends uncle who had a shop in Hollywood, he did this one at home. I wanted a tiny one but he thought otherwise and it turned out to be about 6". Mine did bleach out cuz I was either at the beach or working horses all summer long. It is still the only rose I have ever received!

Down each arm, my husband has each son's name, and that's son's birthdate.

Default My Ink!

Okay, I finally got my tattoo pics transferred over... I don't have pictures of all of them, but I'm just missing the leaf & celestial scene. I'm attaching it as an album, since it would take up too much space to insert them all!

Default Naw, I ain't got none and never will

I sort of hate tattoos. Wasn't bad when you had to be a sailor and got drunk, blew'd and tattooed and there was a reason behind it all.

Now days everybody has the most trashy junk permanent to their bodies. I especially hate it on women. The really nice ones have God's canvas and they go mess it up with the Devil's clipart. Leave it alone Babe, that pure raw skin in all its glory will get far more attention.

You can have some cute ones but today most seem to be pure junk. The most creative I've seen over the years was:

1. Guy had a black panther on his back, claw reaching around with nails digging into the shoulder. Blood dipping down his arm. He let it all fade a few years and then would get the blood redone. Looked real, you had to do a double take.

2. Guy had a large W on each butt cheek. When he stood on his head it spelled MOM.

3. Guy had a small rabbit following a trail going between his cheeks. Some cottontails have a strange way of going to the den.

Naw, wasn't born with one, won't die with one. Plus I really hate all that metal rings, crap and bolts sticking out of their heads and where ever. If you really want attention that bad, get a lot of very nice skin and show yards of it. Forget the purple hair and dodads. Even the cavemen loved lots of nice skin, they did their drawings on rock walls.
