Arm (needs some touchup next time I go in):
Back and Ankle I designed myself. Arm I had a design I liked, but ended up being too large, so I picked a similar smaller celtic band from some of the artist's selection. I'm currently working with one of the artists on a design to expand on my back. I'd like to have more to fill in the outer shoulder area. Current idea is some sort of a phoenix design with wings spread out onto the shoulders, where the current tat would appear to be a sort of overlay on the phoenix. Pheonix would have more of a lighter, shaded look to it. I need to meet with her again so we can sketch out some ideas.
Also had tounge and both ears peirced.

Yep, Earth is a chrysanthemum on my forearm, a peony inside my elbow, and cherry blossoms.
Pandora said:Yeah I figured. I like your theme. And that's a cool peony. I'm trying to find an orchid I like...haven't found many designs tho.
BigDov said:Is there any significance to the symbols in your back and ankle tats??
bast_imret said:ankle is the kanji Yume, means dream, vision, or illusion. I see myself as a bit of a dreamer. Even though I'm an engineer and fairly logical, I'm still very right brained at heart. I like to daydream alot. Also, I always have to have some fine art outlet. Be it music, reading, acting. Keeps me in balance.
Back is the literal translation of my name. The kanji representation is Eternal.

Baron Von Awesome said:All my ink was actually sketched onto my arm and then inked in. We basically sat there, he drew on my arm, we would ok it or say it needed changes and fix it, and then just ink over the pen & Sharpie. If you can find an artist good enough in your area to do this, I would recommend it.
