Rat-A-Tat Tat....

Well, I'm sitting here at work and, of course, I couldn't resist the urge to post. Unfortunately, I don't have time to sit and read everyone's blogs today, because I would never get any work done. And, let's face it, I don't want to be here any longer than I have to.
Whenever I'm going through a HUGE life change, I have a bad habit of getting a tattoo. I am up to five and getting ready to go for my sixth. I have my own personal reasons for each one, and I always put them in places where I can show them if I choose to, or keep them hidden. My tattoos are really important to me, and each one tells a story of my biggest heartbreaks.
So, just for the sake of posting something today, I thought I would share some pics of my newest tattoos.
This is of "My Baby". (See Side-Bar). Some people may think It's ridiculous to get a tattoo of your dog. But, you know, what? She meant more to me than I can ever explain. Putting her to sleep was harder on me than what I'm going through right now. Her unconditional love got me through the hard times. The artist free-handed this off of a picture I brought him. It was my special touch to have a halo hanging off the "Z" in her name. I think he did an amazing job.

I just got these. They are the symbols for Faith and Hope and they go straight down the middle of my back. (OUCH!!). I just woke up one day and thought to myself, "The only way I'm going to get through this next phase of my life is to have Faith & Hope". No further explanation needed. ;o)

Not bad. Nice graphic quality to Zoe pic. Like the Chinese too, I've learned some symbols myself for feng shui.

Seems to be a very slow comment week-end, guess everyone but us is out shopping!

I'd have to agree on the tattoo things. My most recent one (a little over a month old) has a lot to do with what I've been going through lately. (Kanji of "Broken hearted". I want another one now for other shit I am dealing with but I've still got to get the one for my boy that was KIA in Afghanistan in October. See ya around girly.

I like those.

I'm thinking of getting another one. I have one going down my right thigh. I got it when I was 18. It's a winged tiger. It symbolizes the year I was born and my love for God.

I want to get a yin yang symbol with a tiger and dragon fighting on my arm.

I got my first (and only)one not even a year after my daughter was born. It is a butterfly on a daisy - wild (daisy) and free (butterfly) were what I was going for on them and how I would like to be, sometimes. I'm not sure if I will get any more. I thought about getting one to cover up my scar from a surgery, but that surgery seemed to change a few things for me since it was life threatening, so I don't want to cover it up. It's a good reminder to do things that I want, within reason, ya know? I like yours though and I understand completely why you have them.

You and I have even more in common. I have three tattoos. I used to get piercings when I was going through bad times...and tattoos when I was going through a life change...I have since taken out most of my piercings...but I still have my 3 tattoos. ;)

I'm the same way. The sweet pain of a tat always calms me. Good work on Zoey's portrait. I have 6 tats now and since I've been down been fighting the urge to blow money I don't have on a small one. But it makes me feels better. Probably by Christmas I'll add #7.

I have my nickname "Jen" on my left shoulder. JEN is also my late grandmother's initials.

And I am working on a semi "sleeve" on my right calf. It's a work in progress.
