I have a kanji tat on my upper back/lower neck area. It means serenity. My AD got it for me last year for mothers day. Then for her 90 days clean I got her the same one. Cool hugh?
I have been thinking & trying to design another one, I like the thought of a lotus flower b/c of the meaning behind it: For people who have gone through a hard time & are now coming out of it. Like the flower the have been at the bottom, in the muddy, yucky, dirty bottom of the pond, but have risen above this to display an object of beauty or a life of beauty as the case may be. Thus a lotus flower or tattoo or blossom can also represent a hard time in life that has become overcome.
Or maybe I could just get a bellybutton tattoo, cuz I can't find mine anymore.

I only have pierced ears. I am allergic to nickel, so I never went any farther and have no desire to. But I have seen some really nice tatoos. Marle

50 is 30???ahhh no--maybe for Oprah it is though! (and I love her).As stated above sometime a tatoo is a symbolic way to say something to yourself-a new step-a new life,,,

any ideas???

My ABF has two tribal tattoos, one each on his upper arms. He has my name and his son's name on his chest. One of the tribals has a beautiful head of a tiger in the middle of it which is symbolic for his life. Each tattoo means something very important to him.

He's struggling with recovery now and he's gone for a month to try to save his life and get clean. This is a good thing. He needed a change in scenery and complete isolation from the dope. He was doing great for almost three years .... then ran into the wrong old "friend" and decided to let the demon "H" back in the door to invade our home and steal our happiness.

Anyway ..... he's always wanted me to get a tattoo ... I don't have any.
I'm aware of the symbolism of the Phoenix, but is there anything else you can think of that would symbolize struggle and recovery? or how about the type of enduring love that walks through hell and has the strength to get to the other side?

Maybe on the one year anniversary of his sober return ...... I'll consider surprising him with a tattoo of my own. If this relapse doesn't kill one of us ..... I hope it makes us stronger.

I have a memorial tattoo on my lower back. A monkey with my uncle's(and best friend) initials above it, date of birth on one side and date of death on the other. I chose a monkey because Monkey was my uncle's nickname for me from the time I was born. I also have a gecko/lizard thing climbing up my right leg. I'm still working out the sketches for two more that I'd like to get with my kids' names. As for piercings, I've had my nose done(don't any more but would love to get it redone) my belly button but currently no jewlery in it until I get my tummy looking good again. 4 in one ear, 2 in the other. Had my toungue done at one point but it drove me crazy.

I am 48 years old...I have my hip to almost my knee, floral/tribal/vine...My back is me sitting lotus in a garden, arms reaching out to the sun, between breasts is a small lucky fairy, both my girls names lower back [around the garden], and 3 piercings in each ear although I only wear two. I have to be conservative, I'm a nurse...

I have a tattoo on my lower back of a heart in the middle with the tribal on both sides. I wish I had a digital camera i would have taken a picture of it.

I have my belly buttom pierced--I've always loved my stomach-- and I have a bunch of holes in my ears (5 right now but not sure what the parts are called). No tattoos though, which surprises people about me, maybe one day...a stargazer lily somewhere..hence my name on here.

Fun post!
