I find tattoos really fascinating, especially what lies behind the design. I really love watching 'Miami Ink' especially since there's always a story behind each and every tattoo.. It really is interesting. I used to think that tattoos were ugly, but now my perception towards it has totally changed. So back to my question, what's your tattoo all about? Why did you pick that design and what's the significance of your tattoo? I'm really interested to know, so do share.. Thanks guys~! :D

One of my tats is a tribal around my right ankle. The "base" is a green tribal band. Over that in purple are 3 tribal zodiac signs. Aquarius, because that's my sign. Capricorn, because that's my son's dads sign. And Taurus because it's our son's sign.

ankle tattoo - the front of my ankle tattoo
Here's the front, where my son's sign (taurus) is. It looks a little crooked because I took the picture myself, so I was twisting a little. It was also taken only a day or two after I got it.

Woww! I think it's really pretty, especially the color combination. I think the green and purple go very well. I like it!

I have 5 tattoos but the one that is the most meaningful for me is my wedding tattoo. My husband and I got matching tattoos a couple of months after we were married. It is of an angel and a devil embracing and mine has his name above it and our wedding date below it..and his has my name, ofcourse, lol.

I have a large Unicorn on my shoulder blade...I really just wanted it and it took ages to make the design that I wanted..To me unicorns are mysterious and intriging, and that appealing to me.

I have a smiling sunshine on my ankle. I got it because I love suns, stars, moons, etc... (I even have my bathroom done in the celestial theme.) I want to get another one on my back of my son's first name. I just have to make the time to go get it done. My hubby has a bulldog with USMC on his arm. He was in the marine's so that's why he wanted that one.

I have four tattoos. Each one is unique and all my own artwork. My first is a small dragon, curled up asleep. I love dragons so this one is simply a one off of my own. The second tattoo is a portrait of Brandon Lee from the movie The Crow, it took me ages to get it right but it looks great. The third is also from the Crow, the outstretched wings of the crow and my fourth is a dreamcatcher with a spider web and a small red back spider

Woww.. you must really like Brandon Lee. It's cool to be able to design your own tattoos. What does the dreamcatcher and the spider signify to you?

If I could get one, (I can't because of a blood disorder),it'd be something for my dog who recently passed away, maybe his face and dates.

That would be really cool~! I see lots of people who actually have the portraits of their dogs as tattoos. I think that's pretty cool. Too bad you can't get one though.. :(
