On My Fifth Tattoo and Counting

Recommended Posts

I belong to another tattoo forum, and I heard nice things about here, so I decided to join. I'm delighted to be here. I have Asian-inspired, neo-classical, and even the dreaded text tattoo. (Don't give me too much guff. It's in an imaginary language and relatively artful. It's not Three Doors Down song lyrics. Don't shoot me.) I look forward to being a member of this community.

I get my next tattoo on Friday. :) My tattoos are inspired by my love of flora, fauna, and literature. I'm a real dork. Be gentle with me.

Edit: I swear I'm literate. I swears it!

Thank you, dead. I have a little crappy cherry blossom on my thigh that has solid lines, but needs reworking. No sense putting it up until it's jazzed up.

CL, I figured. I'm a big fan of Tengwar and Sindarian. I also love the Runic inspired Dwarvish and the High Speech.

Thank you for the polite welcome.

I posted the scar since it shows a before and after with the tattoo. I had ovarian cancer and a ten lb. tumor. I was a size 2/4 at the time, and I had no clue. Let me tell you, I believe in that, "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" stuff. I looked normal, just had awful symptoms. Four years clean.

I just wanted to say how I deeply appreciate everyone warmly welcoming me. Sometimes in fringe communities people are made to feel like outsiders, and that certainly hasn't been the case here and another tattoo forum. I really appreciate it.

    • cool tattoo. no need to cover it up... it'll fit right in with a traditional sleeve no matter which way it's facing. don't overthink it! i'd say the "rules" are that tattoos should face forward if they're on the side and face inward if they're on the front or back. i did a quick search of Bert Krak's IG for some examples. The peacocks on the back of the calves both face inwards. But on the client with the eagle backpiece, you can see a skull facing in and a hannya facing out... and no one will say that one's right or wrong. it's not even consistent and it doesn't matter! 😃 Just keep getting tattooed and it'll be all good!
    • that's correct orientation IMO
    • should be facing into the center of the body, like you have it, right?
