Where: Right hip
What: Double women's sign
Why: I just turned 18 and was with my girlfriend. It was covered up a couple of years later when I was considering joining the armed forces because I couldn't find a job. That one now needs to be covered because it is so old and faded. That will be a large one! LOL

I had gone to a tattoo parlor with my older son because he wanted to get a price to get a tattoo done. I thought I would never get one. Discussing things, the only way I'd have one is if it was something to do with bowling. Mine cost about $25 and I'm still getting them. I was about 53, tatt is bowling ball and pins on back of my wrist.

I was 19 I think & my Mom & I had been up all night talking (she was having a really hard time because my Dad filed for divorce) & we decided that we were going to get tattoos as soon as the shop opened. So we went all silly & delirious due to zero sleep. She got a cross with my brother's name & a butterfly with my name. I got a tribal design on my lower back. This was back before I'd heard them called tramp stamps! Lol. The design itself I don't love it but I don't hate it. I love that it reminds me of my deep bond with my mom & how many times we would stay up all night talking & the craziness we got into. I love my mama :)

My first one was total crap. I had a really small simple band around my right upper arm. I was 16 and thought it was one of those kinds that are just always going to look good. I liked it for a few years, then I just thought it was ok. But later I found designs that I really loved, that were much more individual, but this stupid thing was in the way of where I wanted it doing. In the end, my tattoo artist friend designed a large piece just for me from a mood board I made of things I liked. He worked with the band to cover it and now it's awesome and no one else has it. If I have a quid for every person I have seen with that same stupid little band that I had then I could pay to look like The Enigma lol

I was 18 and I got a tattoo of a treble clef on one of my inner wrists and a bass clef on the other. I love music and the thought that goes through my mind whenever I see them is "Music runs through my veins"

I was 24, and I got a matching tattoo with my best friend: Fiona and Cake from Adventure Time. It's kind of silly, but it best represents our friendship. Then I kind went nuts with tattoos after that lol

I was 17 and got a heart on my ankle. That has since been covered with a rose with my sons name. I really don't know what the hell I was thinking at that time. Just wanted a tat. Now it means something to me with the change.

Well, my tattoo fund got dipped into for other necessary stuff, and I have gained back so much weight I lost that I'm now starting over. :/ bummer. So, my first tattoo will have to wait longer than I wanted. However, I will be 50 next March, whether I'm at or near goal by then or not, I'm at least gonna get my first one when I turn 50!!!

I finally reached a milestone goal... I got under 200lbs. I'm ready for my first tattoo. I eventually want several.

I'm thinking of a phoenix on the side of my lower leg... a phoenix represents a lot of me... dying to myself, rising up a new creation, recreating myself... and other reasons. :)

We shall see. :)

I got my first one when I was 18. Went to NYC/NJ by myself for about 4 days. Explored and partied. I'm a HUGE Jim Henson fan, and at the time I was also really into ska and swing dancing. I drew Dr. Teeth, full body in a skanking position, wearing spectator wingtips. I came home from that trip with him on the side of my right calf. Pose is similar to one on an album cover, too- was really into The Police at the time.
Think that one came from what used to be Electric Dragon in NJ.

When i was 16, my mom(who is awesome) told me that for my birthday i could either get a piercing or a tattoo....so um yeah...i no doubt said TATTOO!!! We went to my moms friends neighbor......yeah lol and he did it in his house :[
It was back in 07 so no one really knew any better.

I ended up getting a little pink star outlined in black on the inside of my wrist.
don't laugh....I got it because Ashlee Simpson had an outline of a star on her wrist. and at the time she was my idol.

yes it was poorly done....but i DONT regret it.

link to the tattoo (with out the swirly things. i doodle that on)

Ha - my hubby threatened to get a tattoo in retaliation...he said he was going to get his name tattooed on his rear. So I told him to save a little cash, and just get a "B" tattooed on each cheek. Then when he bent over it would spell his name out. BoB. ;-) He stopped threatening.

I just got my first tattoos this past weekend.

They are both back pieces, on my shoulders. On my left shoulder, is a small black outline of a seated kitty. It's in memory of my sweet Annabelle kitty and Abbey kitties who passed away the year I got married (6 years ago)...I was 35 and had them since college.

The second is on my right shoulder and is a larger piece. It is a cancer awareness ribbon entertwined with purple wildflowers and the words Fought Like A Girl. The awareness ribbon is peach on one side (I'm an endometrial cancer survivor) and the flip side of the ribbon is teal in memory of my sister Betsy who passed away in 1999 from Ovarian Cancer. It is a tribute to our fight with cancer.

I was immediately addicted. Now I want to get the words "Live Fearlessly" tattooed on my inner forearm. My husband may have a heart attack if I do though....he's not as happy with my tattoos as I am.

Be the change you see in yourself.

My first tattoo is a small heart right near my ankle. It was something I did on a dare during a girls weekend. It has since been incorporated into an anklet tattoo that I got a few years after that. My advice is to be picky about what you get and where you get it. Remember that whatever you choose is going to be with you for the rest of your life so unless you are really, really into something like Hello Kitty or Minnie Mouse then skip those all together. Go for something that inspires you and pay the $ to get it done right.

My first tattoo was when i was 19 (many years ago). I was mad at my boyfriend (which was covered in tattoos) and didn't want me to get one. So me and my two sisters all went out to get a small tattoo. (one of my sisters already had some, but it was a first for me and my other sister) One got a moon, one got a crab for her sign (cancer). And i got a heart with wings on my upper arm. It is pretty small, but it was so bright, that it looked like a fake tattoo. Seriously like a kids tattoo that you wet down and peel. So for years everybody called it my lick n stick tattoo.

Weeell my 1st tattoo was in 1988 and I was 19 years old and didn't put alot of thought into it. It is on my upper arm and it is a dagger with a rose going through it. I do not like it at all and after 25 years I am doing a cover up on it Oct. 22nd. I am so excited!! I am getting a fall tree with my old tat being part of the trunk. The branches will go up and over my shoulder (front and back). I just love trees...I think they are beautiful and to me they signify strength.

I also have a couple pics on my page of some of my ink. Will post a picture next week of my new one!!

I agree with LMB, don't get flash, find a good artist and work with him/her to create something unique and special to you. I have several tattoos and each one means something to me. I work with one artist, I have cheated twice but I had good reason LOL.

Let us know what you decide to do :-)

Oy! Well, first of all, don't get flash. Pick something with meaning to you, find MANY samples of it online, find a really good artist (get recommendations from friends) and work with the artist to design it. And expect to pay. "Good work ain't cheap, and cheap work ain't good."

Mine are all dragons because they have deep meaning to me. I put them all in places that can be covered by clothing because I need to be professional, and they are all in places where I can see them myself whenever I want to. I figured if I was going to go through the pain of the work and the expense and the aggravation of healing, I wanted to be able to see the thing! Although now for the first time, I'm considering a back piece. But first I have to become gainfully employed :-)

I have pics on my page if you want to see. I think we have some friends in common, no? Seasons_Change?

I'm trying to save up for my first tattoo. I'm only about 13 lbs from that mini-goal!

There are so many I'd like to get... so I'm wondering, what was your first tattoo and how did you decide on it and where (on the body) did you get it?

thanks!!!
