I wouldn't. Too much permanence. But, I enjoy the beautiful work.

I get tired of the color of my walls and have to change the look too often to ever go with something that lasts forever. Also who wants to see a 59 yr. old woman showing skin? Plus I hate pain haha

I got one when I turned 21. And what do you do when your son turns 30 and you are barely 35?? A tattoo to "mark" the occasion. Peacock feathers across my back and on my shoulder. I know plenty of people who would disapprove. But on my quest to my own wholeheartedness it's something I've been wanting for a long time now and kept talking myself out of...no more! It's part of my journey to embracing the old hippy in me.

Done it, twice. Don't regret it either, but both were drawn by myself and I "sat" on the drawings for two years before I got them put on. The first pic you posted is beautiful. The only problems I have with tattoos is that they fade, and sometimes not so nicely. That, and if put in certain places, the eventual sagging of body parts does make the original picture lose some of its "luster"!

I got one in 1975. I just graduated high school. My first time away from home the big Iowa city. It wasn't as popular for girls to get them then. I looked at a book that had 1 page of something a girl would want (god forbid) i think of my own design. A rose a small insignifigant rose. All faded and boring. If you get one make it very cool. and large.

I've always wanted to, but I'm afraid it will hurt! Some body told me it was worse than having a baby!

Not for me I'm afaraid, but I do admire some that I have seen on other people.

We have a lot of traditional tattoos here in New Zealand, with Maori and ethnic tattoos being very popular.

My son in law has his chinese name tattooed on his shoulder, along with a Maori tattoo to show that he is born asian, but is now a New Zealander. It is very cool.
