Do I get a third one?

  1. ....tattoo, that is. I've got the urge. Maybe it's just that it's spring. Been thinking about it. Told myself that if I lost 10 pounds I could have one. Well, I lost 8. So now I'm telling myself that if I get one, it will inspire me to finish the weight loss, lol. Or maybe I'm just rationalizing.

    I have a small monochromatic fairy on my upper right thigh, only visible in bathing suit weather. I have a larger, colorful woodland fairy (Amy Brown art) on my left lateral calf. Visible in anything but pants!

    So now I'm thinking about putting one on my left flank/back area...not visible from the front. Something that represents "3" (as the mother of triplets, "threes" appeal to me; also has some bearing on why I want 3 tattoos). Won't be a fairy this time though. Maybe a design of three flowers on a vine. Oh, decisions, decisions.....

    I'd call it annoying more than painful Karen.

    I say go for it Zee! I'm making myself the same deal!

    How about letting your girls design it--3 parts that connect or something the represents each girl.

    I'm getting another one when I graduate!

    Karen--the pain varies from person to person...also has to do with placement and how heavy-handed the artist is.

    do it do it do it do it

    Personally I don't think a person can have to many tattoos (NO FACE ART).

    I'm getting a rose somewhere pretty soon, my Mom was going to get one for her 70th birthday and never got around to it before she got sick.

    I feel much better. I am contemplating my 3rd one right now as well. I can't decide where I want it. I have definitely narrowed it down to the nape of my neck, the ankle, or the upper thigh.

    decisions...decisions.

    Hey maybe I should start a poll.

    I have a tat on my outer right lower leg, near my ankle. It's a teddy bear holding a resebud. Some say it looks like a monkey, some say it looks like a Grateful Dead Bear. I don't care though cause I love it!

    I've got 2 myself.... and I'm thinking about a third! I say GO FOR IT! Mine are on my hip/back and left ankle, they are both flowers. My ankle is 3 purple flowers intertwined (sp?) on a green vine and my hip/back is a sunflower....

    How about instead of a tatoo, get your navel pierced?

    I thought about getting a tattoo, but now too cheap to get one. I wanted to get something around my bellybutton...but so glad I didn't because of stretchmarks. I also thought about something really cutesy like a flower or something on my ankle.
