    My husbands grandmother fought off breast cancer, the weekend after she was given the all clear she went and got a tattoo on her shoulder it is a butterfly. Now every time my husband gets a new tattoo she talkes about getting another one. She is an active 65 year old! Your never to old to try something new. lol

    I have 3 tattoos. Mine are a permanent reminder of all the hard work I've put into recovering from a very tramatic childhood. The damage was permanent, so I want a permanent record so I don't forget that I have self worth. I drew all of my tattoos so they are very personal to me, and for me. But I realize that not everyone feel the same way that I do.

    Tatts - you either love them or hate them! Those are great, thanks for showing the site.

    Years and years ago, somewhere in the middle ages, LOL (as I am that old) in my career as a RN, I worked in an operating room. A woman came in for back surgery and as we turned her over, I saw butterflies tatooted on her gluteus maximus, (maximii?) both cheeks. I was fascinated by this whatever the reason and, whatever my fantasy was at the time so I went out and got one something like it--only one side though. For years and years, no one knew my secret, except for my husband. I am far far ahead of these younguns today- so there-further, I have the advantage of having an identifying mark in case I can't find my way home one of these days

    My daughter drew her own. Our family has had some close calls healthwise and so she has them as her good luck charms for us. They are very pretty and have a lot of meaning.
    I had a tough childhood and have now almost realized I am a good person. Good luck with your life.

    off lurking for a moment, thanks for this link! made me laugh. my daughter and SIL have ink (tatoos) and I might eventually get one based on the names of my grandbabies (Phoenix and Aurora) assuming I have enough skin left without wrinkles! SIL loves skulls and Dez (daughter) likes Goth type stuff so I have been playing around with (a lot!) of changes to a Sunbonnet Sue to make her Goth and base a quilt around that for a wallhanging for Rory's room. fabrics so far are from Wallie, a zebra type, pink with white, orange and black flowers, and a pink background, slightly glittery girly skull print with bows on tops of the skulls! thought maybe plain black borders to separate and fairly large squares. this will be my first real quilt, other than some doll stuff and dog blankets. Really did not think I would ever post it here, but maybe I will! sorry for long post--

    Same here. My dh's opinion of people with tattoos is not very high. Personally I don't care, but can't see myself getting one.

    Yeah, I'm scared to death of needles so I never could get a tatoo and now I'm too darn old :lol:

    Kinda like Tim Mcgraw's song "Remember When" where he remembers when a screw was a screw, coke was a coke, etc.
    Everyone whoever tried to teach me to tat, got frustrated with me so never did learn it!!

    KatFish,
    Good for you! I was touched by your words and the work you have done. I have done a lot of personal work, too, and have come a long way. My childhood was not as traumatic as many people have had, but there have been many other traumas in my life with my family and the journey of recovery took me back to my childhood.

    Keep up the good work and the powerful statements. We all need reminders whether we realize it or not.

    I can't imagine having something permanent on my body. I thought long and hard about even piercing my ears!
    I can only imagine what those tattoos will look like years from now...when a cute little dolphin on the backside becomes a whale, when a butterfly becomes a vulture. What about a chain around the neck, lost in wrinkles, and of course the previously stated wilted rose hanging low on a booby! Oh my gosh!

    I have to agree, and while looking at the photos of the tats, I also noticed the redness around the tats. My opinion is WHY do that to yourself.

    I thought I was making a graceful stride into old age when I changed the names of "the girls" from Perky and Pretty to Flip and Flop.

    I have to say...I just dont understand the desire to "ink up your body"....there is no picture that I would want to look at every day...and I dont think they are pretty. I will stick to appliques or embroidery on shirts lol.

    Different strokes for different folks.

    I hope I never suffer from alzheimers but if a doctor ever tells me I have it, the first thing I'm gonna do is get a tat of my name and home phone number along with my DH and kids names so they can identify and who I belong too. I'm not joking I am seriuos. After watching my DGM I am terrified of getting it and already have made plans. Told my hubby if I wonder into the woods to leave me there.
