Getting Ink

As you can see by my new layout, I am a bit of a tattoo fan. I decided to go with this layout because it was a bit more "me" than the pink spotty one (that was cute though).

I only have three tattoos, one of which is old and dead, and none of them are very big. Mostly because I haven't been able to afford any really big work. But I have decided that I really want to start seriously collecting tattoos.

The ultimate for me? Getting a tattoo done by this guy, Chris Garver. I absolutely love his work, it often leaves me speechless. He seems to be able to put movement and flow into his work, it never looks like a flat picture. As far as I am concerned, Garver is the best in the business.

It helps that he's a hottie too.

I'm saving him a spot, because one day I want this guy to tattoo me. I'm going to give him a surface, and say "Knock yourself out bro" and let him tattoo whatever he would like there.

Until then, I'm planning a few new pieces. I want a pinup of a librarian. Underneath it I want it to say "Reading is sexy." I've also decided to get a rainbow lorikeet. I like them, they're noisy and chatty and make that laughing sound, and are colourful and loud. Kind of like me. I'd also like a baby sea-dragon too. The word "Serendipity" somewhere. A tiny number 42.

Can you tell I've decided to really go the whole shebang with tattoos?

Do you have any tatts? If yes, what have you got and why did you get it? Do you have any planned?

Yay for finding a new blog template! :)

I don't have any tattoos. I was seriously considering two tiny ones, a word on the inside of each wrist, in tiny tiny caps, not flashy at all- love, joy, believe, something like that.

I would write them on to test it out. :) Then when I told the idea to my mom, she was so upset about it that I decided to give it some more thought, and in the end decided I want to get custom made bracelets that have all the words I want on them, and then I can wear different ones each day! :)

But I do still want one. I want to get a tiny one, again words, under my wedding ring, so that a "ring" on my skin as well. So it won't be visible at all though, but I'll know it's there. :)

I think the idea of inner wrist words is really neat though.

Nope, I'm not a tattoo person, at all. I've seen some really cool ones, so I don't think they are terrible.

You already know I share your passion for tattoos, my body already holds five. There's a list on the wall next to my desk which holds my future tattoo desires and would take my total to ten. If I can stop there....

I can't imagine not having my tattoos and the strength I draw from them.

I know very few people with tattoos and I know both my parents disapprove enormously, but they genuinely bring me happiness and I always put that first these days!
