The design and themes of my tattoos: My large tattoo has pretty much just been pieced together by my artist over time as I've decided to add to it. I don't have a design or theme, just what I feel like getting really.
More specifics about my tattoo: I have a Kurt Vonnegut quote on my wrist and the roman numeral 13 on my ankle. October 13th is my wedding anniversary and this year my husband and I got those. I have a colorful shoulder cap of flowers because I wanted something pretty and feminine.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My largest tattoo is my favorite. It started as a large dragon covering two small tattoos I got when I was younger. One of which was a dragon. It now has a cherry blossom tree, clouds, a sun with an important symbol to me, and birds! I grew up doing martial arts along with my whole family. The dragon and symbol are due to that huge part of who I am.
My next tattoo: I have several. I am planning a three quarter sleeve incorporating a DNA strand and stars. I am a biology major and love the concept that everything in our DNA has always existed since the big bang and the very elements in our body come from dying stars. I also would like a thigh piece and an underboob tattoo. I really like spiders and snakes so will probably try to incorporate those into something.
