Ink me










I love the the very fine delicate handwritten style, would be amazing if I could find a piece of writing from someone like my Grandad & have that copied onto my body. That or a small sketch/watercolour of his.

Currently thinking this quote might be a winner:



It's so hard to chose something that's going to be stuck on your body, for me it needs to be pretty, tasteful & mean something. I'm not one to get a random tat, this is going to be on my skin for the rest of my life!!

Have any of you got any tattoos? Link some pictures, I love looking at them!

I'm not really a fan of a quotes tattooed on a body, I've got the opinion on my mind that someone that needs a written reminder to be happy is kind of sad. But a tattoo is personal.

Please don't get guard your heart on your chest though :P

Ooh, those look lovely!
I have three.. http://goldenglowww.blogspot.com/2010/08/my-tattoos.html

And I've always wanted a quote too! x

Guard your heart would be gorgeous!!!
I have "all that glisters is not gold" from the merchant of venice on my ribs, which has great meaning to me.
I think if a quote means something to you or is special, there is no harm getting it scripted onto your body. Its always great when there is a story that goes along with ur tattoo instead of it being a silly mistake (i have one on my tummy!!) The next one im going to get is my clan motto!!!
Luv xXx

This is exactly what I want, going to book in to have it when I get paid next week. Im having "joie de vivre" on my left wrist in writing like this, various reasons which I won't go into. Guard your heart is lovely :) x

i agree, i could only get something that meant something. one of my favourite quotes is 'set your sights for the sun'
I think yours is a lovely idea with lovely words.
my boyfriends friend tragically died earlier this year and as a tribute he got a copy of a tattoo he had on his shoulder but changed the words in it to 'with arms wide open' it makes it so much more special that its there for a reason
great post

suzie - I really want a rib one too! love them! Definitely agree with what you said, if it has meaning there's no harm =)

3ate4 - thanks for that blog, love it!!

alexandra - that quote is so lovely, very inspirational. think it means so much more & you'll like it for so much longer if there's a reason behind a tattoo.

I like quote tattoo's but like you I am not one to just have a random one written across me. I like this 'guard your heart' its such a lovely heartfelt quote. It also can mean a number of things ... where are you looking at getting it?

I have been reading your blog and its so interesting and different. I love it :)

i have a very tiny tophat on my wrist which i love more than anything! whenever i start looseing who i am, it always reminds me that i am a 1st class weirdo and my hearts in my art :)
tattoos have to be special otherwise they are meaningless
