    I only have one tattoo, but it was custom drawn for me. It’s a jumping horse (I ride, duh) the same color as the horse I used to show. He was such a good boy! Horses have always been a big part of my life and have a big influence on who I am.

    Can’t wait for Oracle 2! Your teasers have me ready to read!

    Well, my favorite tattoo is actually one that my great-grandmother and I were supposed to get together. It’s a hibiscus flower on my ankle. She was awesome – the game plan was that on my 18th birthday, we would go together and get them in each other’s favorite colors. She passed away on 9/12/2001, before I was 18. About 8 months after my 18th birthday, I finally got it in her colors. Teal & purple.
    That woman was crazy – but I loved her. We’re coming up on my birthday again (about 1.5 weeks) and every year, that tattoo makes me think about her and how much I miss her.

    I currently have just one tattoo that I got when I was 19. I often forget it’s even there as it’s on my lower back, but I still love it! It’s a large blue dragon that took 4 hours to get. But I love it as it feels like I’m a piece of art just for having it. 😊

      Entry #3 – I never seen mine either – similar placement. Dragon though, I love it!

    I have 2 tattoos. My favourite is a butterfly I designed that has my families astrological signs in the wings, while mine makes up the body.

    I don’t have any tattoos but i really want to get a tattoo of Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack and Sally were part of our wedding theme and honestly I see me and my husband in those characters lol. Dumb I know. I’m waiting until I lose my weight and I’m going to get it as a treat to myself for losing the weight 😊

    I have no tattoos (yet) because I haven’t found something I want permanently! BUT if I can convince my husband to get wedding band tattoos I’d be there in a heartbeat! 😉 Ten years next year, maybe that’s the year!! I frequently remove my rings for work so I’d love to have something to show when I take them off! 😉

      Entry #7 – This is great idea. When he’s building houses Michael has to have his ring off as well.

    I don’t have a tattoo, but if I got one, I’d get a shamrock. My dad’s birthday was St. Patrick’s day (March 17) and he passed away in 2004. I’d love to get one in his memory.

    I don’t have any tattoos. I keep thinking about getting a chain of forget-me-nots around my ankle because they are the Alaska state flower but pregnancy, kids, and graduate school have gotten in the way.

  15. December 10, 2015 9:54 AM

    I don’t have any tattoos, but if I were to get one it would likely be the Celtic knot that’s on our wedding bands. I love it, and it shares a name, so it has a lot of meaning for me.

  16. December 10, 2015 10:00 AM

    The favorite that I already have is my Labyrinth/Moon cycle on my right wrist. I got it as a reminder that I walk the Goddess path, and that the light always returns after the dark. It’s a symbol of cycles, and that all things come to an end.

    I have many more planned, and a wolf print on the back of my neck. But my Labyrinth is the only one that I get to see 🙂

    I have a tattoo on my left inner wrist that says Live Happily Ever Now. Also has my sister’s initials JAWK. My sister and her best friend from grade school decided to get tattoos on their 50th birthday. My sister passed away 14 days after her 49th birthday. I decided to take her place so Kim wouldn’t have do it alone. I chose a quote from my sister’s life board. I try to live life happily ever NOW and not wait for something or someone to make me happy!

    My favorite tattoo a tie between two of them, one on each foot, #1 is of a scarab with wings open and some papyrus flowers and #2 is a firefly with the kanji for serenity over it. I’ve always loved Egyptian things and fireflies were always my favorite when I got to visit my grandparents house (& the fact that I love the tv show Firefly is an added bonus).

    The tattoo on my upper right arm: a 4-masted sailing ship struggling in the stormy sea. Below the tattoo it says “Not Gonna Sink”. I look at it every morning to remind me to float above my personal troubles, and not to let them be the anchor that drags me down.

  24. December 10, 2015 2:04 PM

    My favorite tattoo is one I have myself. It took two sessions of 1 1/2 hours and 2 hours each. The first part is a celtic triple knot in yellow and green. The second part encircles the round triple knot and is composed of oak branches. The top branches are bare, as in winter, then there are leaves that have light green, as in spring, dark green, as in summer, then gold and orange and red, as in Autumn.

    This is a tattoo I have on my own back.

    I love that Rochelle has tattoos. <3

    I have 3 tattoos, all with significant meaning. My favourite are the ones of my daughters names, one is on top of my wrist and the other is on the inside,very simple cursive font, but I made it that way so in the future I can add to them and turn it into a bracelet 🙂

  27. December 10, 2015 3:19 PM

    I have the Gaelic word for faith, “creideamh,” on my lower back. It was designed for me by a cast member of the play I was in the summer before my 25th birthday. I still love it 12 years later!

    I can’t see myself ever getting a tattoo, but if I did it would be of a tree of some sort. The Giving Tree was one of my favorite books growing up and I’ve seen some beautiful tree tattoos. Since Fall is my favorite season, I’d have to choose a tree shedding it’s leaves.

  33. December 10, 2015 10:11 PM

    I only have one tattoo, but it is my favorite. My best friend was diagnosed with leukemia when we were 16, and her symbol going through chemo was a dragonfly. 10 years after she passed away (I got the tattoo two days after what would have been her birthday), I got a tattoo of a dragonfly flying down my right rib cage. It’s about 4×4 inches and only in black and shading with grey- the butterfly tattoo from your books is actually pretty similar. It’s my way of always keeping her close.

    My favorite is my paisley. I have several tattoos, all with some significance. There is no significance to this one, other than I wanted something pretty and lacy. I went to my artist with the guidelines: pretty, lacey, and paisley, and she came up with something I love, every day! It’s nice to have something beautiful to look at, no matter how I feel about myself, or my day.

    I have a tattoo of a red heart surrounded by violets. It’s on my shin and covers up a large hyper pigmentation scar. Before the tattoo I hated wearing shorts or dresses because someone would always ask how I got the scar. Now I get compliments on my beautiful art work. It was custom designed by a friend of my daughter and is gorgeous. Getting it was my most empowering moment.

    • December 12, 2015 10:13 AM

      Entry #36 – Anne – so brilliant! I’m so glad you did that for yourself!!

  37. December 11, 2015 6:56 PM

    My favorite tattoo that I have is a tribal sun with the words “Change the World” inside. The sun represents the idea of a brightly burning sun, or someone on fire with desire to change the world. “Change the World” is shorthand for a phrase I came up with: “I will change the world because I refuse to settle for anything less.” The tattoo is a reminder to me to never settle for anything less than my best, and to use my skills to better the world.

      Entry #38 – when my sister got married they had two ceremonies, one for each side of the family. For the Indian side we all had traditional dresses made, and got our hands hennaed. It was a crazy cool experience.

    I have 3 tattoos and they all have meaning. But my first one has to be my favorite.
    My aunt was diagnosed with lung and liver cancer in 2002. She decided to do chemo and radiation, all that fun stuff. Well, my mom, my other aunt and my cousin told her if she lost her hair, we’d shave our heads. Luckily that didn’t happen (I would look so ridiculous bald!!), so we all decided to get tattoos. My aunt had a chemo port of the upper left side of her chest, and that’s where we got our tattoos. It’s a stylized jade cancer ribbon fir liver cancer, with a rose (her name) all tangled in it, but coming through – I designed it. Unfortunately, we lost my aunt in May 2003, she loved them though 🙂
    I know this is long, but I really want another tattoo. I have a subarachnoid cyst in my brain, right behind my ear. The subarachnoid is one of three layers that surrounds and protects your brain. When we learned about it, my mom named it Charlotte (from Charlotte’s Web). So I really want to get her tattooed behind my ear! But, I’m weird like that 🙂

    My favorite ratio is the one on the ride side on my ribs. It stars off saying I love you bunches and bunches to the moon and back forever and always a bushel and a peck and a hug around the kneck to infinity and beyond more then you’ll ever know. It goes around in the shape of a cross and on the inner side by noon it says John 3:16. It has a double meaning however one I believe in God and it a constant reminder of his love but two the word/ sayings are thing that my granny,dad and other people I love have told me my whole life that are no longer here. In a way it keeps them with me.

    Also I apologize for how long that was.
