Exclamation Horse Tattoos?!

I'm getting my first tattoo next week. I want it to have to do with horses/riding in some way. I really wanted to get 5 horseshoes on my side. I just need some ideas. So if you good give me some ideas/advice and also PICTURES OF YOUR TATTOOS ! That'd be great.
Thank you!

My suggestion is googling "horse logo" that will bring up some really neat lineart for various things.
I also suggest, if you can, pinning the tattoo design on your bathroom mirror for a month or two to make sure it's "the one" and not something you're going to get sick of easily. Of course, again just a suggestion :)

I have a "hoof" print on my shoulder I'd love to get move going down my back - everyone says my luck is running out - but its not for the luck reasons, I got it because its like a hoof print in the sand not a lucky horseshoe hanging up at a barn lol

Maybe something along these lines? ---------> Google Image Result for
I googled "horse stampede" You might want to go with a stampede picture to get all the horses in.

Find the tattoo you like, hang it on the fridge, and if you still want it after a year of no alterations/changes, then get it.

I have no idea what you should get, it all depends on your personal taste.

When I get a tattoo, it's going to say "ricci love" in some kind of pretty black lettering and it's going to be on the outside of my right foot, the "r" by my ankle, the "e" by my pinky toe.

I've also thought of hoof prints on my ribs. It's hard to explain, but I'd want four, set like they would be if a really tiny horse were walking up my side. Of course, that would be really painful.

I don't like big tattoes, so I wouldn't dream of getting one like the picture that was posted. Although it looks great! I don't mean to be offensive, it's just too big for me. =]

My biggest concern for getting any tatoo is putting it somewhere that won't sag with age and get distorted, and it can be hidden if you need it be. It's also very important that you will want it forever. You can go and get whatever you want pierced, and ten years later can take it out. A little scar, but no harm done. A tattoo is forever. Obvious, yes, but some people just need to be reminded. =]

Its a really big decision to get a tattoo. I have four and love all of mine but i know a lot of people who didn't think it through and have really regretted it so its not something to be taken lightly.
Get something that has huge meaning to you. Don't get something that you think other people will like.
AND RIBS HURT!!!! 'specially to the floaters.

I dont know if you're religous or not but you could get a cross that is made out of horse shoes. I think that would look really awesome since its gonna be your first tattoo. something of that nature.

Have you had it done yet?
Maybe a heart with a fourleaf clover vine or barbwire draped around it and the hoof prints crossing over it?
If your horse wears shoes, take an old one and have the artist base them on his hoof print.
If I was braver, I have a mare I would like to have on my shoulder. Would take the artist her pic.

My horses have done so well on dac that I became a rep. Stand behind 'em 110%.
