you showed me yours


The post As Permanent as a Moment You Want to Keep Like an Heirloom, by Girl's Gone Child was my inspiration to ask about everyone's tattoos.

Comments led me to believe that most people with or wanting a tattoo will be more than happy to talk when asked about their artistic selection. So many different folks commented about what they would do if they had the time, money, or support of friends.

I originally wrote the post in order to get some inspiration and that is something I definitely received from reading the comments and posts. Don't worry, no need to hunt me down - I haven't stolen anyone's ideas, I found my inspiration from reflecting on why people committed to such a permanent reminder of a point in the past.

People who wrote posts are linked below. I thank each of you for sharing. If you write one and want to add it the list just leave me a link in the comments. Enjoy!

Sweet! I know I wrote about my tattoos on my blog somewhere but for some reason I can't find the post. I'll keep trying and come back with the link if I do. :)

here's a link for you - more about the reason and the connection than the art itself...
