Show me your Tat!

I got my first Tattoo a few weeks ago and am totally in love with it. Quite a few of you commented on your own tattoos, so now I am curious I want to see them. Please share what you have where and why. Send the pics to sally-jane@pinkhairgirl.co.za and I will add them here.

If you don’t have one but are thinking of it or have an idea, please feel free to share that too.

This is mine a Guardian Angel Ankh

So here are the tattoos that you guys have been sharing:

Acidicice
Tattoo

AndrΓ©
The tattoo is three Kanji symbols in a modern font.

It’s over my heart, cos that’s where it binds me.
It means I will never break the promise I made.
It is unconditional and unbreakable.

Tattoo

Richard
It’s the Horde symbol from World Of Warcraft.

This is my tattoo of 2 geckos in a yin-yang design. I had it done in Thailand to celebrate my 30th birthday.

I got the first part of the tat (the main flower at the bottom) for my 21st birthday and didnt add anything else until early 2009…
The main ‘flower’ at the bottom was part of the original tat and represents me, the inside is a styalised ‘G’
I added two more flowers one representing Paul and one for Aaron.
I am going to add more when I have more kids.
I also want to go back and have some colour put in, like a burst of different colour from behind each flower…

An amazing guy that i grew up with was killed in a car accident nearly 2 years ago. on the first anniversary of his death i got this tattoo. we’re both gemini’s (born hours apart!!), hence the symbol. inside it are his initials and underneath his birth and death year.

Tattoo

Barend
Mischievous face in the middle of the sun, fits well with the
Sagitarius personality
Tattoo

I made a combination of 2
designs I found, Kanji writing means “Never Give Up”, my motto in
life.

The ones on my back r kind of a tribute to my guitar and hence my music, I play a Gibson hummingbird and the scratchplate has a bird and vines and flowers, gonna get a butterfly added someday. Then the quote in the lower back section says “hope will not disappoint” which is a Godly concept which is stating that if hope comes from the right place, it won’t disappoint u. The SLG on the lower back tat was my 1st tattoo that I got when I was 19, it’s the initials of a song by Tori Amos called “strange little girl”, I added the vines and flowers later, that’s why it looks a little out of place.

The one on my wrist of the cross that says “In Your freedom I will live” is kind of depicting Jesus as a revolutionary and a freedom fighter, hence the red star in the middle.

  1. My best friend and I share the same butterfly tattoo on our shoulders. I have a chinese symbol which means butterfly on my neck and I have a spider on my ankel

    • Craig – I waited 10 years to find what I wanted, it was worth the wait for me, it now has so much meaning and I love it. Hope you find something you like
      Gilz – pics I need pics please!

    • Wait Jeanette, one day the right one will find its way to you, I waited 10 years for mine and would love another but will not rush it and just get anything it has to have meaning.

  2. i have always wanted a tattoo… on my shoulder – of a gecko (I LOVE jane’s gecko yin-yang!!!!) – but im soooo scared of needles πŸ™
    i’m very partial to having a tattoo on my wrist or ankle too…

    sigh – too chicken.

    i have stolen your blog idea though, and set a “Sow me your #sparkly” challenge on my blog πŸ™‚

  3. it is interesting to see what design appeals to each person. I am not crazy about tattoo’s but like that they have such personal meaning to the wearer.

    Angel i love your cupcake it is very pretty and colourful

  4. YAY i can finally add my tatto to the list: http://www.snappingturtle.co.za/word/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/IMG00200-20100424-1726-300×225.jpg

    woo hoo!!

    i did an article here: http://www.mydailywalk.co.za/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=109:getting-the-first-one-&catid=37:blogging&Itemid=63 with a pic of me getting it done.

    The meaning: yes, it is a dragonfly… which traditionally symbolises independence, freedom, beauty etc… but the head of my dragonfly is the stylized zodiac symbol for Taurus – my star sign. It is a feminine tattoo, very delicate and pretty… I have always liked pretty tattoos… elegant and delicate.
