Addicted to Ink


I started with one tattoo in the late 90s. Now I have three.
Guess who wants at least three more?

The first two I want, and have wanted for a long time, are arm tattoos like
the ones seen here on Angelina Jolie. I want to get my kid's names and
birth dates on one arm. A song lyric will go on the other.



While searching for tattoo pics, I ran across this image on Pinterest. I love love love this spot.
I'm thinking my maiden name would look perfect here.



When it comes to arm tattoos on chicks, I'm very picky. Some girls can pull
off sleeves and color. I'm not that kind of girl though. I want simple, small
black text in a few spots. Then, I honestly think I'll be done.



So, do you think I'm crazy?

No, you're not crazy. But then I have 2 tattoos, a tree frog on my right calf & a fantasy dragon on my left with my kid's name written in the smoke.

Nope, not crazy...I have two and I want more. I got my new one on Tuesday and I'm already ready for another one. It's on my right wrist and I love it!!!

Allena said...

I am so jealous. My hubs is NOT a fan at all of tattoos so I just drool over other chicks!

Mighty M said...

Not at all! I have one on my ankle I would like to have covered or incorporated into something else...but not sure what could be done. I also want to get a tattoo with my kids' names and birth dates. Could come in handy when I get old and forgetful. :)

I've heard that once you get one you sort of get addicted, like potato chips. Ya can't have just one. :)
My aunt and uncle have this awesome tattoo artist and they went apeshit and each got like 8 in a year. LOL

No! I want a small tattoo on my wrist sooo badly...

LouBoo said...

I'm intrigued...I really like how they look but have never had the courage to have one. Ugh wish I did but I could not decide what to have in a million years. And what if I didn't like it? It take such trust to allow someone to stain your body - really should I just be brave??!! Lou x

Christine said...

Absolutely not! I'm already trying to decide what/where to get a tattoo to represent my kids. Glad I haven't already done one.... ;)

flomineek said...

absolutely not! I have 5, a ladybird on my shoulder, a UV (hell yeh!) butterfly on my ribs, two stars on my stomach and a colourful cutout affair on my hip.. and I want a tiny anchor and a cute cupcake then I think I will be done

the problem with getting ink is it is strangely addictive (and cute tattoos are the best)

Girl of The Grove said...

Nope, not at all! I love arm tattoos. I'm thinking of getting one someday in white ink. (my profession would frown upon arm tattoos).

we seem to have so much in common. I think I am just a step ahead of you. (: I have 3 small, black text tattoos on my arms. I love them! I totally say go for it!

I love my write tattoo.. and I also love the spot where you want to put your last name!! Hmm... samsies x2?? Maybe! Even tho I just got the owl, I want another one. And I want to add a bit more to the owl. GIRLS NIGHT!

Shelley said...

As long as it's done tastefully and its stuff that really matters to you then no, not crazy!

Erin said...

Not at all crazy! And I agree I like simple and black!

Impulsive Addict said...

Nope. Not crazy. I have 2 tattoos and I want to get one with Emma's name somewhere on me. Not sure where though.

Natalie said...

Not crazy at all.. My sister has my neice & nephew's names on her wrists. It's adorable.

I still want the 3 shooting stars on the top of my foot, but I know it's gonna hurt like a biatch so I keep putting it off. We'll see.. maybe this will be the year?

Red Boots said...

Not crazy at all: you've picked very arty, discreet and personal tattoos! I don't have any tattoos but I don't think I could get away with one! And I can't think of anything I'd want on me for the rest of my life, and that's probably a very good reason for me not to get one!

Meghan said...

You aren't crazy at all! I am not a tat girl, but I do love the scripty, smaller tattoos that you displayed. They're really cute.

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Yes, you are crazy!!! Because tats involve NEEDLES!!!!!!!!!! You're braver than I am!!

Date Girl said...

this is my worry when I've said I want to get a tattoo. I've heard they are addicting and you're proving that theory right. That said I don't think the small black text is too bad, but I can't stand sleeves on women (or men for that matter). Smaller is better and less is definitely more!

Christina said...

What are your other two tattoos? I don't have any, but if I did get one it would be small and black text. My cousins and I have been toying with the idea of our maiden name (Justice). I like your ideas for places and I really like the placement of Katy and Russell's because it’s so easy to hide: http://www.posh24.com/tattoo/katy_perry_russell_brand_have_matching_tattoos

I really want a wrist tat. The only reason I haven't gotten it yet, is because I'm not exactly sure what I want. I think they are so cute!

absolutely not. I've been thinking of getting my maiden name tattooed on me somewhere for years now. I just wanted to wait until after I got married or right before [depending on the spot]. I still want to get my mother's initials to honor her after her passing. I just haven't worked up the courage to get it done... I have 3 tatts so it's not the fear of getting it... it's the thought of weeping in the chair while it's being done.

I really love all of the placements of these - but they will have to wait until after my wedding. I didn't want tatts showing in my images. Mine are all on ankles and lower back so they will be covered.

I love all of these! ox
