Tattoo Tuesday – Hero

image

What: scroll with writing and cherry blossoms
Where: on the outside of my right ankle
By: Lauren at Yakuza Tattoo
Why: She needed to practice free handing her cherry blossoms. My Grumpa had just died and only at his funeral did I find out what an amazing man he was.
He served in both Korea and Veitnam. After being honerably discharged after a helicopter accident, he joined the Red Cross and rescued children from Cambodia. Amazing.
I got “hero” because I didn’t want people saying “ohhhhh, who’s Tom *wink wink*” (His name was Tom)
I think it suits him.
My Mum was cranky at me once about my tattoos and she told me he would have hated it. That hurt – a lot. But it’s my way to pay tribute to him and that’s what counts.

Tattoo Tuesday – The Locket

Last tuesday I was getting tattooed. And I apologise for not having tattoo tuesday up.

BUT to make it up to you. I have photos of me being tattooed!

What – Locket

Where – inner elbow.

By – Arm at Coat of Arms

Why – Well, it’s actually really simple. I have a key . Every Key needs something to unlock. What better than the key to my heart. Also, it represents me wearing my heart on my sleeve.

Tattoo Tuesday – One I Did

What – roses (one coloured, two outlined)

Where – inside of my leg/ankle

By – ME!

Why? This was one I did on myself when I was first learning. I was practicing while it was a quiet night in the shop. It was the first colour tattoo I ever did. I’m pretty proud of it.

(looking at it now, I realise it’s pretty terrible, uneven lines, lines that didn’t go deep enough etc but it was good at the time!)

Tattoo Tuesday – A Foot

What – girl skull

Where – right foot

By – Lauren @ Yakuza

Why – Honestly? boredom. Obviously I thought the design was(is) cool, but I had previously let Danielle tattoo my other foot, so itwas only fair I let Lauren do this one!

By the way people, don’t get both your feet done within three days of each other.They’ll puff up for a week and you won’t be able to walk properly.

Do you have any spur of the moment tattoos?

Tattoo Tuesday – Tattoodaddy

Tattoodaddy is guest blogging  today, but he doesn’t know it. I took this photo while he was in the middle of changing a stinky nappy.

What – The HORDE crest

Where – On his bicep

By – Arm at Coat of Arms

Why – Because he’s a nerd, obviously. Who doesn’t want the Horde sheild on them forever? Who doesn’t want to pledge the ultimate love for the warcheif. Take the Blood oath to the next level. Seal it in blood, dammit!

Not to mention, he’s been playing World of Warcraft for about 5 years. His main character has seen him through some tough times.**

** The whole “Why” section is my speculation based on how much he loves World of Warcraft.

Tattoo Tuesday. Faeries, family and protection

What – double lined, 7 pointed star

Where – ribs, right hand side

By – Sean, Coat of Arms

This what my first ever tattoo. I love it. It has multiple meanings to me. 7 is a very special number. There are 7 days of the week, 7 directions of magick, 7 chakra points, 7 people in my family…

It is a star of protection and power.

I also feel that having one point for each person in my immediate family keeps us together and connected, regardless of wherever we might be.

Do you have any spiritual tattoos?
