What Tattoos Do You Have?
« on: Aug 29, 2004, 08:11 PM »
I have a small green frog on my right shoulder. I've had it for about 30 years. I got it after looking at an old book of tattoos and getting drunk with a friend. He got a mouse with horns. My tattoo is pretty murky with age - more like a green-grey blob, than a frog.    So what have you got, and where is it located :twisted: ? (post a pic?)

Upper right arm - crazy tribal design

Lower back - Dutch word that means "Believe"

I am at work and don't have a digital camera here, but maybe I'll post some pics later.

I have on my left shoulder chinese letters that represent mine and my wifes names,  on the back of my right leg I have the "Keith Haring" painting "Radiant Baby",  on my chest I have and eagle(my first at the ripe old age of 15), on my left arm I have a cat(The Cat drawing from the 'Stray Cats", it's a 50's style.

That's about it for right now:)

Believe it or not, I have a large crucifix on my upper right arm with the words "Trust in" overtop the cross and "the Lord" underneath. I've had it for about two-and-a-half years now. I guess you could call me the "Ray" of the forum, minus the Calvinism heh

  My personal take on tattoos is that one should only get something that has personal meaning for them. I don't think I'd ever get something purely for design. Of course, that's just how I feel about it. To anybody else who gets something purely for design, more power to 'em. Do what feels right for you. Lates.

Anybody's dad have a tattoo? My father was a forensic accountant, but he got a cool tattoo as a navy man in WWII - a near life-sized dagger on his right forearm, with a little scroll of ribbon around it saying -"Death Before Dishonor" - god i loved that thing as a kid. one Saturday we sat arm to arm and i copied it with a ball point pen onto my arm - i hated to see that sucker fade.

My friend was working on fathers day and two guys walked in.They were father and son, the dad had an old tat of a dagger and snake from his army days .My friend touched it up and tattooed  the son with an identical piece  in the same place . A fathers day gift .

I know that it had nothing to do with me but I loved the story!

that's a fuckin cool story S.B. - my father has been dead for a few years, but i can still see that tattoo - he was proud of it. in those days it meant you'd seen action during the war - the last just war.

As an artist, I always think, why tattoo when I can be an ever shifting swirl of body paintings?  I have a glow in the dark temporary spiderweb jeweled tattoo saved out for the next local rave though... oh and a flashing bellybutton LED light, can't forget those  :wink:

Great topic BB.
I have 3...one on my right shoulder, in front...chinese symbol for love...(at least that what its supposed to say...who really knows eh!  :lol:  )
A wrist band: black tribal design with a heart in the center near the back of my left hand.
Lower back :stylized sun design in clouds.  Taken from Blue Rodeo's Palace of Gold cd...i cut and pasted the sun from the front into the clouds on the back...worked on that sucker for about 6 hours to get it the way I wanted it.

I don't know how to post pics on here...I would if I could...  I tried but it didn't work...

For the IMG tags to work you need to have the pic hosted elsewhere on the web and use the URL, otherwise try uploading it  with the add attachment form below where you type your message, click browse and viola.  hope that helps.

I have a tattoo on the back of my right shoulder, of the sun from the Sublime cd, 40 oz. to freedom. I'm also thinking of getting some sort of Cheech and Chong tat, maybe like the cover of Up in smoke.

I have a tattoo of a Haida eagle on my back, a celtic knot on my upper right leg,  a cheesy little tattoo of my initials that I did on my ankle when I was 16, and drunk....and a tattoo of a coyfish on my arm, which I am eventually gonna turn into a sleeve tattoo...My next tattoo is a celtic cross on my left arm. When people ask why in the fuck do I have a tattoo of a fish on my arm, I tell them it's the brand of the Newfoundland Mafia, and you better not fuck with anyone who has this brand...or you'll "be swimin wit da fishes"
