I Want a New Tattoo!

27 September 2008 5 Comments

I got my first tattoo about 8 or 9 years ago i guess it was.  I had always wanted one, but never wanted just any tattoo.  I've always loved art and always thought that tattoos looked really cool, especially the unique ones, the ones people come up with on their own.  Now there's nothing wrong with getting a "book" tattoo but I'd rather have something that means something to me personally.  What's a "book" tattoo?  That's the generic tattoos you pick out of the books, the ones everybody else has.  Now there are A LOT of tattoo designs out there and some are way cool, but I'd still prefer to design my own tattoos.

Tattoo Designs

As i said, i love designing my own tattoos, usually they come from experiences or circumstances in my life and usually are related to the people in my life, past and present.  I'll get into more of that later when i throw up some pics of my tattoos and tell you how they came about.  There are however some great places on the Internet that offer some pretty sweet tattoo designs.  People are always looking for Tattoo Designs on the Internet.  Places like TattooFinder & TattooJohnny are a couple of great places to find Tattoo Designs.

The sites listed above have some great tattoo designs, but they cost!  There are however many places where you can find free tattoo designs and patterns.  Use the search box below and search for "free tattoo designs" and you will find some great places that offer free designs.

Once you finally decide on a tattoo, then there's the next big question.  Where am I going to put it?  Of course some folks decide where they want to get the tattoo first, then they try and find a tattoo that works for that particular area of their body.

Some of the more popular places for tattoos are:

  • Lower Back Tattoos
  • Foot Tattoos
  • Arm Band Tattoos

I'll have to say, I was always told that when you get your 1st tattoo, you'll be addicted and you'll be wanting more!  Well that saying definitely holds true for me.  I currently have 5 tattoos and want at least 2 more.

Ok, well I'm going to take some snap shots of all my tattoos and in my next post I will show the pictures and give some background on what they mean to me.  I'm probably going to do a slide show, so I want any of you that have tattoos to think about sharing them on here as well.  If you can take a pic, or if you already have a pic, you'll be able to upload it and show it on the slide show and share YOUR tattoo pictures and stories.

I'm also going to be talking about different things related to tattoos, so be sure and check back.  If you're interested in tattoos or just this blog in general and you haven't yet subscribed to the feed or email alerts, now is a good time to do that!  If you can't figure it out, leave a comment or drop me an email using the contact form and I'll help you out!

The comment section is open, start sharing your thoughts, ideas, whatever you want to say about tattoos!  I look forward to your comments!
