Tell me everything. From meanings to plans, show me pictures, talk to me about what your motivations are behind getting some, I want to know everything!!

I've got a Polaroid style tattoo of my sister's and the triforce from the legend of Zelda so far. I want a lot of flowers on my body, video game references, self care tats, stuff like that. : ))

Ok guys, so tattoos are my one of my only motivations to stay alive a long time. I mean, I'm an artist (kinda, I guess I could call myself one) and after I realised that I can even turn my body into a canvas I got so thrilled and europhic. That's one of the reasons I want to turn myself into a puddle full of tattoos, lmao.

I'd like my children to draw something for me to have on me. Like each of them draw their version of me and them holding hands or something.

I'd like a rose stem on each thigh.

Ideas from my favourite bands albums covers

Also song lyrics from a band that saved my life.

Agh I hate not having money. Being a mum of of children on disability benefits is hard.

There are so many things I’d love to have a tattoo of that I’d probably be completely covered if I got them all lol.

Rush has always been one of my favorite bands and a huge inspiration to me so I’d want a Rush tattoo or some sort.

Anubis, Santa Muerte, Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus together, Harley Quinn, Iron Maiden

I’ve got like tons of ideas. After saving up I think the hardest part is going to be picking what I want lol.

The only one I've ever wanted to get tattooed (I've got three already and two have placement issues and will be covered eventually, but I'm not in any hurry), is of the statue of the goddess Nike of Samothrace.

She's speculated to have once been delivering a triumphant shout of victory as the armies faced their adversaries in war. I've been in love with this incredible piece since I was a child, ever since my grandfather showed me the image in a magazine. The sheer intricacies of its sculpture and movement, and the very meaning behind it absolutely fascinates me. Add to that its rich history, and I just love it.

I really want a tattoo of a simple flower I always draw. I started drawing it on me, to help with sh urges. Now I draw it everywhere. I want it on my hip because that’s where I started using sh.

I really want a full-sleeve (left arm). Something dark, black only, brutal, probably references to hell and demons.

I already have a full back. Currently that's all I'm thinking but maybe one day hips too. I'd like to have hips tattooed in a more 'aesthetic' way. Not necessarily a scene representing something.

I don't have any, but I'm seriously considering a small heart-shaped wreath, without any outlines, with wild flowers (bluebells, buttercups, forget-me-nots, and pink clover) that I use love to pick when I was a kid. I would either have it on the inside of my upper arm or on my ribs under my left boob. I've heard that those places hurts like heck, so that sucks a bit.

If this stuff is too nice for you, I've got some crap.

i really want to get some stuff done soon. it's been way too long- thanks, covid.


not sure what i'm going to get next, but at some point soon i want to get the bird inlays from Paul Reed Smith guitars done. it's a long story, but someone spent a whooole lot of time playing music for me a while back [on a PRS] and them doing so really helped me work through a lot of personal shit. i don't want to forget how i felt every time i saw those birds on that guitar, or the things i overcame during that time. sounds cheesy but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


not sure about where i'll put it or even how i want the exact design to be, but i do want to get more than just the bird's shapes...idk. i'm taking my time deciding on this one.





i also want to get this skull and and missile logo...




i saw this band in concert a year or two ago and the experience was insane in the best way. the city, the venue, bumping into musicians on the sidewalk...there were so many surreal elements to that night and it's another experience i don't want to forget. 

plus, if you see another person with one of these, you pretty much found your people :lol:

I want to get some seaweed tattooed on my ankle / foot. I love the sea, it is where I feel most at peace, and my granny was a marine biologist. She wrote a book on seaweed and we have some of her drawings of seaweed at my family home.

I just need to find an artist I really trust. My other tattoos (seashell, peacock feathers, swan) had less meaning so I wasn’t so concerned but this one really must be beautiful and perfect.

I've got a list, so strap in


Bravery- on my left ribcage over some self harm scars. It's going to be in my handwriting because I got myself through some tough times, and I always used to write the word bravery on my wrist when I was feeling down. The only reason it's not going on my wrist is because I want something that can be covered


Quill- left hip also over some self harm scars. Writing is what helped me vent and feel better. The quill is going to be in baby blue, pink, and lavender watercolor, arching over my hip bone


Orion- left shoulder blade. It's my fav constellation and it will look cool


Semi-colon- right hip. The meaning behind this is pretty well known. I'm only getting this one if my best friend gets it too. We were planning on doing it this summer but covid happened


Protea and daphne- left side under the Bravery. Protea symbolizes diversity and courage, daphne means "I would not have you otherwise." I'm bi and it took a while for me to get rid of the internalized homophobia and accept myself. These flowers look great together and are a subtle picture of my journey.


I'm also considering the phrase "when you know, you know," a treble clef, and a red rose. Not sure about those though

I want sleeves down both arms and stuff on neck/chest haha but can't due to job etc... I asked my brother and his wife the other day (she has tattoos, he doesn't) about placement that is easy to hide and pain. It was really helpful! So I settled on my shoulder blade, and maybe shoulder to shoulder like upper half of my back idk. So thats the placement.. the design idea is flowers and 5 crows, idk how it would work lmao... the design part im leaving up to the artist. So florals, with maybe some blood on it for Color™. The only meaning behind the flowers is because it's from an album by this band. The 5 crows represent the 5 members of the band. The comeback concert of one of the members was titled 5 blackest crows, so it seems really great symbolism and to get a tattoo dedicated to them. Nothing outright "dedicated to a band" but enough symbolism that when you see it and connect the dots you know what it means. Another part of the design is the text "Until I Die." Doesn't particularly mean anything to me, but the vocalist of this band has it so I just stole it from him, but he has it on his neck and there's no way I could get away with that. I guess one could assume "I'll be your fan until I die" but its not really that. Just cool words I stole from the vocalist because I think it's cool and we'll match (well.. kind of.) Who knows, maybe those words will mean "I'll be your fan until I die" one day.

I have a little stick n' poke wave on my left side and I want to get it professionally redone and maybe jazzed up a little to be less basic. Then I want the phases of the moon either under my right boob in like a half circle shape or maybe vertically on my right hip. My grandma always signs her letters with these little bird drawings so I want to get one on my ankle or behind my ear. I'm also planning on getting a small thing with my two closest friends and whatever it is it'll be matching and maybe on our wrists. I also want to get a little chicken somewhere but I don't know where yet. Oh and also a pentacle somewhere.

I love chest bones, ribs, thigh gaps, hip bones, collarbones, spines, thin faces and I feel so worthless not having them like I did at the end of last year.

I have some kind of legitimate disaster tattoo, a spiral, I wanna turn it into a snake coiled around an apple.

A dream of another existence
you wish to die
a dream of another world
you pray for death to release the soul.
One must die to find peace inside, you must get eternal
I am a mortal but am I human ?
How beautiful life is now when my time has come
A human destiny but nothing human inside
What will be left of me when I'm dead, there was
nothing when I lived

no one will ever miss you"
