    I've got two, trying to get my camera to work but it isnt cooperating.
    On my left forearm is a Tomcat standing on his hind legs leaning on an M-16. It was a going away present from friends in an F-14 Squadron in San Diego. In 1983 we went to Tijuana to party together one last time, the next morning I woke in a cheap hotel with a new tattoo and a fat ugly hooker. Surprisingly I still had my wallet, money, and all vital organs.
    I have a Tribal Panther on my right shoulder. In 1998 I was stationed in Puerto Rico and met a lady tattoo artist out partying one night, she commented she could probably fix my Tomcat which had become pretty faded and rough by this time. My wife and I went to her shop the next day and ended up leaving with a repaired Tomcat, a Tribal Panther, and my wife got the Angel from one of the Led Zepplin albums on her hip. A few months later the wife went back and got a spirit scene tattooed on her chest from the same lady.
    Some recomendations:
    Dont get a real intricate design with close lines, over time the lines bleed and it'll get blurry.
    Becareful of colors, some colors fade and if their a detail of the tattoo it will lose definition.
    I personally prefer tattoo's in a place where I can show them if I want or cover them with clothing if it isnt an appropriate setting.
    And be sure whatever you get is something you can live with, cause eventhough you can get them off it's expensive.

    Looks like I'll have to be the one to break this thread in, and post a pic.:winktongue:

    Mine was actually based on a comic character, I just redrew it.
    The character's name is QTBunny, done by Joshua Quagmire. The Quagmire

    The character was dressed as Marvel's Storm for a Halloween party in the comic, and I liked the look of it, so I redrew it one day while I was bored.
    Someone suggested it would make a good tattoo, so I thought about it, and had it done. Of course I had it done when I was thinner, so as I've gained weight so has she :lol:

    My one and only. Got it last year on a trip to Vegas with friends at the famous Hart and Huntington's in the Palms casino. I am a Taurus so it represents my Zodiac sign and it was my 40th birthday so it was my present to me, one purchase I can actually take to the grave:great:

    Well, I will post pix's later but I have 5 and the oldest is the Grimm Reaper on left Bicep, got it when I got my first HD Sportster 1976 Liberty Edition (1776-1976) and AMF still owned, I was 20 yrs old. So that was 30 yrs ago, mostly black, a little color. Have a Wizard on the Right Bicep, its the means from the extremes of the Reaper, need a little magic to get through life. The Tiger on the left forearm was to be the beginning of the wild life I was leading buit had not continued on, but will here now that I turn 50 yrs old, will make it the end of the sleeve, with the additions of tombstones with the family members who have passed away, with their dates. Will re-color the Wizard and add the castle around him wit the small town on the right shoulder with a Dragon watching over the town. Left calf has a pruple Dragon, just wanted some small dragons there when I moved here to Florida, so I will add couple of more.
    I love the sunshine so much over the years and it damages TAT's, so now that I live here and get all the sun I want I can get back to tattoo's again. I want only 1 bar/sheild on my right calf. I have a Heart on my left high Ass cheek that has a lightning bolt through it(I know, to much info here,right?), with some coloring and etching. It was a cover up of my second ex-wife's name,Oops, no names except blood family.... So there you go, now in a short time I will add the pictures to the lifestyle.....

    P.S. Was wondering when someone, or me was going to add this????

    I have 3. The first one I got was the Mustang. I grew up around them....60's models of course. My father and both of his brothers owns them so I have always loved them. The second is a mermaid because I love the sea....korny I guess, but she is beautiful and the third is a skull and crossbones that my husband drew. Thought it was a cool way to show off his talent! The Mustang and mermaid are on my back and the skull on my forearm....tough to deal with that one since I work in a bank! Anyway, I love them all, don't regret any, want more....and oh yeah.....you can't stop at just one!!!!

    I have my wife's name tattooed on the right side of my neck. It was done 3 years ago around Christmas. She was shocked because it was so big, but it's amazing what a nice starched collared shirt can do at work. No one notices until dress down Friday which is every other Friday.

    My first tattoo was for a sentimental reason. I got it because of my first son who passed away inside his moms belly two weeks before due date. Its a cross with his birthday in it.

    The second one I got was kind of a just because tatto. I watched my fiance' get one and it made me want another. That one is a tribal tatto with a pisces symbol in the middle. Beacause i'm a pisces of course.

    Both are over 20 years old so they dont look as good as they once did, the Tomcat is actually colored but its hard to tell anymore.
