  1. Hello, I haven't been active on here for a while, but since then, I have decided on a design for my first tattoo. I finally know what I want to get! I wanna get a crocodile, drawn by my childhood hero, on my left wrist (I shake hands with my right). I'm just stuck on WHEN to get the tattoo; I want the date to be significant. Here are the dates I am considering: -February 22 (birth date) -September 4 (death date) -November 15 (holiday in his honor in Australia) If I go with September 4, then I must decide if I get it this year or next (next year will be 1
  2. Okay, if you have read any of my previous posts, you would know that Steve Irwin is my hero and inspiration, and I would like to get a tattoo to honor him. I am currently debating between two designs and would like some input. Suggestions for placement are welcome too, although I am thinking the back of my left shoulder would be the ideal spot. Imagine this one without the wording, and I think the design would be a good tattoo. I like this one because I think this is what he was best known for, him and his crocodiles. This is the one I think would go best on my shoulder. The crocodile on
  3. @Shaun1105 Just wondering, why do you like the rattlesnake and rose idea? - - - Updated - - - @camp8 I know the crocodile Steve drew would be a quick and easy tattoo, maybe good for a first tattoo. I just don't know where I would place it :/ I do like the design, I think it is cute, and personal since he drew it.
  4. Hi, I have a couple ideas for my first tattoo, but I want to get some opinions first. Miami Corn Snake ribbon- the Miami Corn Snake is silver/grey and red, perfect colors to represent type 1 diabetes. I had an idea to have the snake shaped to look like a ribbon. The grey/silver is the diabetes ribbon, and red for blood. Crocodile: this is the crocodile Steve Irwin would draw on some autographs and is present on the Croc One research boat. I have a link to a picture of the boat, so the drawing can be seen. Steve Irwin means a lot to me, he is my hero and inspiration. I want to honor him with
  5. The angle makes it a bit difficult to say for sure, but does have crocodile-like characteristics.
  6. I'm not sure what species of snake, I like them all, lol. Although I might consider cobras or a boa. - - - Updated - - - @Graeme I am asking around a bit, and many have recommended Big Brain Tattoos for realism, they have good portfolios but they charge a lot of money for their work, so I have to consider that. I may take in photo references of some wolves or snakes to get a completely custom design though.
  7. He really was, I am so thankful that my parents encouraged me to watch his programs :) I'm just not sure which animal to use to honor him: crocodile or snake? I learned how to handle snakes by watching him, and caught my first Garter Snake (small, non-venomous) when I was 6 years old! I even have a photo of when I was probably 2 or 3, petting a large boa at the county fair as if it were a dog, lol. Well, I have quite a few snake stories, lol; including a time this year when I picked up a 5-ft long Bull Snake at my zoo when I was working a picnic, because several 3-4 year old children were surr
  8. Thank you! I found it using a Google search to find ways to talk to people to get tattoo advice. I want to make sure I make the right decisions, especially being diabetic. My mom has two tattoos, so I know it's not too much trouble for a diabetic to get them.
  9. Hello, I am 19 years old, born and raised in Nebraska. I volunteer at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, and I go to the University of Nebraska at Omaha (going to be a zookeeper). I currently do not have any tattoos, but I have been thinking long and hard about what my first tattoo will be. Because I am a type 1 diabetic, I hope to get some advice when it comes to getting the tattoo. I have about 5 tattoos I may get in the future, and some have variations that I would need to decide on. Hope to also get some opinions/advice on these, since I am a woman and I want to make sure they are appropriate
