Lol, Joe is old school, he still thinks chicks with ink are "Trollops". Anyhoo, this trollop has 4 tattoos, one relating to horses is solid black Asian lettering meaning "horse", it's on the inside of my forearm just below my wrist.

Haha ahhhh I see. Nothing irritates me more than people who can't respect what people do with their bodies!

I always love the negative comments people have to make concerning tattoos. If you don't like them, fine, you don't have to, but just because it is outside of the scope of what you find appealing how does that make it trashy?? Get off your "high horse," (hehehe) Joe, and accept that what makes this world such an interesting place is that we are all different and show it in different ways...but at the end of the day we all bleed the same red.

I have three! I love them and are expressions of me. In all honesty there will be people everyday (JOE) lol, that look down on you for them and say "Wow! How can you do that to yourself?!" I've learned to deal with it. You either accept me, tattoos and all or you leave me be. I had a friends mom talk to me perfectly fine, then I took my jacket off and she hasn't talked to me since...It just comes with having tattoos. I've never been turned down for a job or anything because of them. Some have asked to have them covered but have become more lax as time went on.

I have a phoenix and peony on my chest/shoulder/back. Also, a realism bird on the left side of my chest under my collar bone, says "What's done is done." Then I have the outline of a horse on my wrist.

I say go for it, make it meaningful, you'll love them and will be addicted. Like others have said though go to a GOOD artist. I've had to have my wrist one touched up three times, because it's always rubbing on everything and fades. My artist though does free touchups for life and he always laughs when he sees me now, asking if a horse tried to lick it off. The more $$$ they cost, the better they usually look and the longer they last when they use better ink. (:

Just make sure you find yourself an experienced tattoo artist, and like stated before look at their portfolio!

My first one is on my right shoulder, says "Cowgirl Up" with barb wire. I still enjoy it, and am going to get another having to do with my classic car. BUT...I have not gotten it because I cannot afford it. So, do not get something on a whim.

Good luck!!

I've been fascinated with tattoos (I love all forms of art) since I was 13, and I can't believe all of the stupid things I wanted to get tattooed on me when I was old enough..I've been looking around at different shops in my area for a while, getting quotes, looking at their work and such.

I always had a rule for myself that if I came up with a tattoo idea and I still liked it after a year, I would probably still enjoy it when I'm able to get it done. I totally agree with the "stupid statement" haha! I figure if I'm too embarrassed to show my grandmother, it probably isn't appropriate ;)

I've had a few passions other than horses throughout the years and like many kids have struggled with trying to figure out what I want to achieve out of life. No matter what I was interested in at the moment, my heart always came back to horses, so I'm fairly confident that it will be a tattoo I can appreciate for a very long time!

I've wanted a horse tattoo for a long time, but not one that was necessarily so obvious (I've seen some beautiful horse tattoos, others I think can look a little tacky). I've been completely stuck on the idea of a bit tattoo since I was about 16. I really like the fact that a horse person will know exactly what it is, but a non horsey person may not know and ask about it. I also think I want to get a small E that looks like it's etched into the bit for my horse, his name is Elton(: I think the best place to put it is on my left inner ankle for two reasons. One, because that is a place on my body that I can easily hide, or choose to let it be seen. Two, because I have self harm scars that I would like to cover up. Riding horses, especially owning my own, helped me so much when I was struggling with my depression and I really don't think I would still be here today if I hadn't found my passion for it. Honestly, my horse saved me.

Thanks for your feedback, and I would LOVE to see pictures of your tattoos!
Good rule of thumb to go by. I think your idea for placement is a wonderful one! I like that each time you look at it, it will be a reminder of what you've overcome and left in the past. I'm glad you found your passion and were able to come out of your depression. You sound like you have a good head on your shoulders, good for you!

I have all of mine placed in such a way that you would never know I have any unless I choose too show them to you. Even though it is my body and I can do with it as I wish, I don't want to limit myself with work opportunities, etc. because of society's "standards" The two on the tops of my feet are for my two daughters. They are their birth month birds, a robin on my right foot and a raven on my left. I have a huge peacock (which isn't finished yet) on my back, a phoenix on my right side starting on my rib cage and going down my thigh, and a kestrel (dh's birth month bird) on my chest. They all have important meaning for me, and they are something I can cherish forever.

What was your purpose for commenting on this post anyway? What did you gain from it besides making a 17 year old girl feel a little bad about herself? Congrats, you're a cyber bully. If you don't enjoy something someone says, simply ignore it. Because frankly, I don't care what you have to say and your opinion is not going to make me change my mind on how I feel about body modification.

Why is it that when people find out that someone is tattooed or has an interest in tattooing they suddenly feel they can talk to them however they please? It's completely rude. Here's a quote that I think you could benefit from and make you think before you decide to state your unwanted, negative opinions: "What Susie says of Sally says more of Susie than Sally."

Have a nice day.
I understand your point, but what you did in your response was no different than his response to you. Yours was filled with more negative vibes than his one liner. As you said about not enjoying something someone says to just ignore it. You didn't do that did you?

I understand his opinion on the subject, BUT feel his post was out of place as you did not ask for opinions on getting tattoos. You asked about certain types of tattoos that you are interested in seeing.

Just keep in mind that this site is a very diverse smoldering pot full of different ideals and opinions, but we are a family no matter how often we agree or disagree with one another.

I don't have any horse tattoos so I cannot help you in showing any examples from my end.

Hope you find what it is you are looking for.

I understand. I guess I meant more along the lines of "if you don't like the topic of a conversation then it's best to just leave it alone"

This! At my professional place of business, the tiniest bit of tattoo showing is cause for being sent home to change. My company has expectations for how it's employees represent it and I respect those boundaries. I'd caution anyone about lower leg tattoos if wearing a skirt to work may ever be a possibility.
