I got my first one shortly after my father died in 1995. He always called me his "moon maiden" when I was a kid, and the tattoo is a crescent moon. Every time I look at it, I think of my father and how lucky I was to have him for as long as I did. I don't think it was a control issue at all, rather a way to commemorate him and our relationship. The other is a sister thing, and I got it in 1996--my younger sister and I are 10 1/2 months apart and were raised like twins. She was going out of state for grad school, I was moving across the country and we'd never been apart for any significant amount of time before, so we got our "sister tattoos". Sounds stupid, I'm sure, but like I said, I don't regret either of them. I don't think I ever will.

The one I'm contemplating getting is also related to my father. His nickname was Smiley, and whenever he wrote letters or signed birthday cards he always drew this odd little smiley face next to his signature. I dreamt a few weeks ago that I got that smiley face tattooed on my wrist. I just need to find the time to actually go get it done.

Where? Is the small of the back cliche these days? It would be easy to hide there...

How much to pay?

Will I regret it, no matter how much I think I won't?
Cool! I like tattoos (thinking about getting one too since a while: either an infinity sign or an Ouroboros) - dunno if it's always a control issue, guess it's individual like most things people perform with their body, outfit etc.

What about putting it on your back just a bit above the bra-strap? Then you could choose whether to show it or not, even in tank top.

Yes, but think well about the motif and place you let it get done! (edit: 'place' means tattoo shop)

saxophone players are definitely not to be trusted. esp. when they play porn melodies right outside your office.

terence, there's one of those at my local starbucks.

He has the unfortunate habit of trying to serenade every single woman under the age of 40 who walks past him.

It's hilarious to watch.

let's dissect pearly's choice of tattoo:

the rhino as a spirit animal:

Quote:
The rhinoceros is a survivor of the age of giant mammals and are basically solitary creatures. They are descendants of ancient times and bring with them the energy of comfort in ones own solitude. They teach us how to quiet a busy mind and relax within ourselves. Rhinoceros prefer their own company and know how to create and enjoy their personal space. This in itself is a powerful teaching for those that hold this medicine.

Their poor eyesight compensated by their acute hearing and sense of smell teaches those with this medicine how to sniff beneath the surface and use discrimination in all the choices they make.

This amazing animal holds the energy of spiritual idealism. In part this is due to their peaceful and timid nature. Although the rhinoceros has a reputation for being dangerous, especially the black rhino, it is generally quite passive and only becomes aggressive when threatened. It is often seen going out of its way to avoid trouble.

Spiritual idealism can be a blessing or a curse depending on how it is applied in ones life. If a persons ideals are so high that the achievement of that ideal is unattainable depression can set in. Those with this medicine should remember to stay grounded in their pursuit of spiritual growth by taking things one step at a time. Patience and perseverance are the cornerstones of this medicine.

The Rhinoceros holds the secrets of survival. It is a guardian of ancient wisdom and reminds us to tread gently on earth and respect all life. In this way spiritual idealism is attained and peace on earth is established. When you call upon the rhinoceros these ideals await your discovery.

^That's very interesting.
My actual reasoning must include that by definition, I suppose, but it is not only that.

And that's all I'll say publicly, though if anyone is desperate to know they can give a pm a try.
It's probably only interesting to me personally.

PS It has nothing to do with the size of anyone's horn, third nipples, porn sax, etc. in particular!

Lulu, you are not helping!!


All right, you've all talked me into explaining. I'm having a torrid affair with a sax playing, three-nippled rhinoceros and I'm getting a tattoo to commemorate our co-starring in a porno flick.

It's called Horn-a-Plenty: Nipple Safari on the Serengeti

Happy?
