I've got about nine tattoos. Each having it's own meaning.
I have a sun eclipsing another sun on one arm (duality of man), two crescent moons intertwined on the other arm (duality of woman), my eldest daughter's first and middle name written in kanji on my back. (I know 100% that it is her name. I wrote it, then a life-long friend that used to teach in Japan and China helped me finish the translation.) I've got a saber-toothed lime on my back calf, a homegrown tattoo that is so old on my ankle in memory of my father taken so many years ago, symbol for powerful on one bicep, symbol for father on the other bicep (to remember to uplift my children throughout their lives), an interested twist of Gemini on one side of my chest since I am a twin and born in June, and then my favorite a huge phoenix on my other side of my chest, from shoulder to sternum (at least 14+ inches).

(Tin-foil hat time. You all know to much. panic)

I have a pretty butterfly on the backside of my neck, a flower and butterfly on my calf, a sun with my son's name on my shoulder, and here's the doozy - when I was 20 and belly button peircing was all the rage, i did that and then got a snake tattooed on my stomach - so when I grew up and decided to have a child, it made for interesting trips to the OB's office and it just grew and grew! as I've gotten older it's gotten older too - my son is 12 now and I have no intention of re-doing it, covering it, or showing it!! LMAO

I've gotten inked 3 times. First time was when I got married in Las Vegas 10 years ago at the crazy young age of 31. My wife and I got our first tattoos to commemorate the occasion. We didn't do anything like get our names written on each other, because we were sure that would jinx our marriage. I got a small dragon on my right tricep and she got a small celtic cross on her shoulder, just because they looked cool.

As you know, tats are like potato chips: you can't have just one. About a year later, I had a griffin silhouette done on my left tricep (it's something from my family's coat of arms). A year after that, I had my original dragon filled in and a large cross drawn around it.

I haven't had anything done since then, but I know the next one I want to get if I ever do it: the first 8 bars of sheet music from "In the Hall of the Mountain King" wrapped around my lower left arm like a sleeve.

I have no tattoos.

Why?

Because I have class.

I know I am kinda late to the party but I have 2 tattoos. 1 on my arm is a rams head and it says Aries and 1 on my lower right leg. My arm one kinda defines its self but the one on my leg is a Logo from my Gunnersmate "A" School from when I was in the Navy.
