Over at DragonDreamer’s Lair an Ink Me Tour was posted. A chance for the members of the ALI Community to show off their ink. I’m late as usual, but I still want to play!!!
Jenn and I each have 5 tattoos. We both want a hundred more too.
Our first tattoos we got in August of 2001. We were in Florida with Lyz and Joni and all went together. They made me go first since I was voted the most likely to chicken out 🙂
Mine: (right ankle)
A flamingo. Did you have any doubts?
Jenn went third after Joni: (left arm)
Jenn wanted the Minnesota Viking on her calf, but her sun poisening was sooooo bad that they refused to do it. So she picked this. She loves the concept of ying and yang. She always says that her and I are very ying and yang. It means more to her now than the day she picked it, it really kinda grew on her!
In January of 2003 we got matching tattoos to celebrate our wedding. It was our wedding present from Rodney. Well, not really, but we always joke that way. We used the money he gave us for our gift to purchase the tattoos. He is rather anti-tattoo. I like to tease him that I am going to get tattoos all over my face. Good times.
Mine: (right shoulder blade)
Jenn’s: (right shoulder bladeish)
Next was our Blue tattoos. We got them on February 20, 2008. I remember the date so exactly because it is my brother’s birthday and I called him on the way home from the tattoo parlor. We got them in Florida at the same parlor that we got the flamingo and ying-yang at.
Mine: (on my left ankle)
Jenn’s:(on her right calf)
Last we got two at the same time. June of 2008 I believe. We both got our wedding date on our ring finger. I don’t wear my rings to bed. I take them off when I get home from work. I often forget to put them on in the morning when I leave for work. So I thought this was a wonderful idea!! I also got three stars on my hand. They represent the stars in Orion’s belt. I’m having a love affair with Orion. We know each others deepest darkest secrets.
My hand: (Left had…the little line under the wedding date would be remains of the Sah More burn)
Jenn’s wedding band:(Left hand)
Jenn also got a tattoo on her right arm of the Celtic knot that means strength. I love it. “That which does not kill me only makes me stronger” has become her tagline.
We both have lots of dreams of future tattoos. I love it. For as much as I hate needles and hate the sight of blood I cannot get enough of tattoos.
