Just a thread about to share pictures, if you want, or to tell people able your tattos. I don't have any pictures of mine but I'll share them anywat.

On my back, from my my waist to about where the bottom of a bra strap, I have a Titanic tattoo. The ship looks like it is coming towards you and there is an iceberg in front that looks like the ship is going to hit. In the steam coming from the funnels it says Nearer My God to Thee and on Titanic's bow it says April 1912. In the water, which looks like it is rippling, are the names of two of my ancestors who died on the illfated ship. This one is all in color.

The next one goes down my left arm. This one says Remember Those Lost followed by 9/11/01 and the hat,gun and boots that symbolize a fallen soldier. Mostly uncolored except the military symbol which has tan boots, black gun, and the camo hat from a soldier plus the silver dog tags. I included a picture of one of these symbolize just in case you don't know what it looks like, plus I stink at discribing things.

The next one is on my left thigh to my ankle. This one trails down from mid thigh to my ankle and wraps around my leg . It says "May the road rise to meet you.May the wind always be at your back" in gaelic. At the bottom and top of this one, in color, are horse and rider. The horse at the bottom is a black who is standing still, all one hood raised. The one at the top is also a black is jumping. Both riders are wearing red to make them pop against the black horses.

The next one is on my right arm, shoulder to elbow. This one says "you don't throw a life away just because its banged up a little" with a depiction of a horse that was once on my parents farm. I personally never cared for that mare but I did save her life.Only reason I didn't like her is that she had to be treated like a princess in every way or she wouldn't do anything for you,but she was a great horse otherwise. She ruptured her suspensory ligement and everyone was for putting her down because she would never amount to anything. I nursed her back to health and she went on to be a great dam, spoiled, but that never got to her foals. Below that picture is her birth and death years. This tattoo has no color. This lesson, that just because something is broken it can be fixed, has always stuck with me.

The last one I have is on my side. Its a picture, just the head, of my mare Pearl with her birth and death dates. Her picture is surrounded by a heart shaped wreath of red roses with the dates below it. This one has no color except the roses, which I did as a symbol of love.





That's it for now. So feel free to share yours.
