The design and themes of my tattoos: All of my tattoos have meaning or represent something. Most of them i have created the design or concept. I have about 3 that are flash, the rest are custom pieces.
More specifics about my tattoo: I have a purple support ribbon on the back of my neck for chronic pain, orange and green support ribbons tied together in a bow on my left shoulder, my daughters birthday and the libra symbol on my right wrist, chinese symbol for strength on my left wrist, the pagan triple moon on my right rib cage, a custom piece with flowers and a butterfly on my left calf, a butterfly that looks like a tigers face on my right calf, a sugar skull on the back of my right calf, a key on my right side, a pentagram with tribal on a chain on my right hip, a small rose and heart on left side of my belly, my grandmothers name with her birthday and the day she passed around my left ankle, interlocking hearts with 5 stars on either side across my upper middle back and a fairy surrounded by stars and other symbols on my middle back.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: One of my favorites is the heart with wings that have daughters name on them between my shoulder blades. My daughter is my world and I love her more than anything so i permently put her name across a heart, my heart. My other favorite is the dragon on my side. It was custom drawn on me with a pen by the artist and then tattooed. I love dragons and at the time this was my biggest tattoo.
My next tattoo: I currently have 2 tattoos that I'd like to get next. One is a half sleeve memorial piece for a close friend of mine who took her own life in Feb 2013. I already have a yellow support ribbon for suicide awareness. I will be adding her favorie flower, the star gazer lily, some hearts and a banner with a short saying on it. The other tattoo I have in mind is 5 fairies making a band around my thigh. The color of each on will represent the 5 elements. Purples for Spirit, reds for fire, blues for water, yellows for air and greens for earth.
