I have 4.
One that shall not be mentioned from a night when I was 21, drunk and high on pot. I want it covered.
Then I got 8 months after dday2 in beautiful strong script the words "I Am Enough" across the top of my back.
I have a Celtic sister knot on my left shoulder, that my sister also got the day after we buried our biological father. It was only the second time we had met in person. Hers is on the opposite shoulder and mirrored.
I have 5 bleeding heart flowers with my kids initials on my right calf with their favorite color. Couldn't do birth stones because one is diamond one is opal.
I'd like to get a lotus flower, not sure where, and maybe a tiny phoenix on my wrist.
And...I also have a few piercings.
Former 80s Icon wishful thinking
My sisters and I all have the same flower.
I also have a Chinese character and a "girly" yin yang symbol.
(Edited to remove detail that could identify me in a police line up).

Confronted him: 12/22/2011
This is the most difficult thing I've ever done.
There are 3 that I would love to get. Have had them in mind for about 4 years now.
Right Bicep, Attacking Eagle
Right Shoulder, Cruising Shark
Left Bicep, Irish Claddah
Left Shoulder, Celtic Cross. Ribbons with family name and my children's initials added later.
Left Back, Some sort of Lotus flower
Left Chest, Pretty cool Koi fish done by a visiting artist from Italy.
Plan on 2 more to cover the right Back and right side of Chest. Then I'm going to stop......
My husband said he would never get any, then he got a 9/11 memorial one for his PTSD therapy.
Now? He's planning his next, lol.
-Family crest on left pec
-generic cross w/demons I got when I was 18
-arabesque my wife and i both have on right tricep
-Hard-to-explain tattoo that my friend and I both got when we were independent pro wrestlers, in anime-style with graffiti
-penguin with cane, top hat and monocle with the words ''stay classy'' written underneath

"Look, as sentient meat, however illusory our identities are, we craft those identities by making value judgments. Everybody judges, all the time. Now, you got a problem with that, you’re living wrong."
Good luck and enjoy the process!

I would love to get another. Was planning on one this spring but now I need to rethink what I want it to be.
I ♥ my Husband!!!
Along the inside of my right foot, along the arch, I have the quote, "A living soul stands rooted and reaching." This reminds me to stay grounded AND to spread my "branches."
There will be at least 2 more. I plan a tree silhouette on the top of my right foot---with both roots and branches showing. And I will do something in my brother's memory one of these days---I still am working on the design.
I find the process of tattooing to be addictively wonderful. (But I'm weird like that--I find waxing exhilarating, too.)
Oh! I forgot--My daughter, her BFF since K, her mom, and I are each going to get ladybugs on our toes next time we're in Houston.
Thigh (This one took 9 hours. I sat for 7 before I couldn't take anymore)
Top part of my back. The flames extend down to the word pride in Chinese. There are also two more nautical stars, my name in old English, and a treble clef.
ETA: Holy ginormous pictures, Batman! My next two will be for DD#2 and 3. For middle DD I'm getting a fancy antique-y key to symbolize the key to my heart. There will be a ribbon through it with her name and the next line to You Are My Sunshine. For DD#3 I'm getting a hummingbird with her name in the tail and the next line to the song.
