I noticed the "Do you respect people with tattoos thread" so I thought I'd make this one.
Some of you realize that tattoos can be very personal in meaning. I want to know what that meaning is to you.
If you don't have one, but would like one, tell us about that.
My first tattoo was when I turned 18. My mom bought it for my birthday/christmas. (though the dates aren't close lol) It is a pink phoenix with yellow tipped feathers. I have it above my right hip, stretching up to the navel. I, like many other people, have experienced hard times. I always wanted to be like the phoenix, and be reborn from the ashes. This is how I try to live my life.
My other tattoo is a chinese symbol meaning tiger. It is black with blue outline. It is on my left shoulder blade. Tiger, I feel, is my spirit animal.
I want to eventually get a white tiger tattoo of it crawling down my side. I want it to stretch from hip to my shoulder where the symbol is. I want to have cherry blossoms around it.
I also want to add flames to my phoenix.
