Tattoos have become common place these days and have changed a great deal since I got my first tattoo in 1970. It cost me $15. at a Trailways Bus stop in Kentucky where there was also a funky tattoo parlor.... No artists were working there, you just chose your tattoo design from a poster on the wall and they stenciled it on and colored it in. There were few 'feminine' tattoo choices available, women in those days were not part of their customer base.

Here is my before and final tattoo transformation that was completed 12/2009.






Looking forward to seeing your choice for Tattoos, please show them off in this discussion!

Joanna, your tattoo is so beautiful! Hope you wear your hair up often....
:D I like to show it off when I can!! I'm very proud of it!
You must like birds, and so do I. My daughter's friend had this interesting tattoo done about two months ago. Thought you might appreciate seeing it...

Wow! I've never seen anything like that, that's really creative! I really want another tattoo that has something to do with atheism, something short and sweet...something like "free thinker" written in cursive somewhere, or just simply "atheist" in cursive somewhere. Atheism is a part of me and I want it on me forever!
That's awesome!
Nice one jase,I've got "NON OMNIA MORIAR"written down the back of my forearm from the elbow to the wrist,it means "not all of me will die" and I had it done after the birth of my son.

 

I got this tattoo after I lost my faith and began identifying as an atheist. It's the final line from Sarah Williams's "The Old Astronomer to His Pupil". 

 

I think I'd like to eventually get some pansies tattooed somewhere on me, as they represent the concept of freethought.

Haha I live in Rutland an am getting my first ink this December!

I got this tattoo in Seoul, South Korea in 2009.  It's my first tattoo and has several meanings for me.  It represents my time in Asia.  It's a memorial of sorts to the pet snail I had my 5th year in China.  It's also a reminder to look out for smaller creatures in our world.  After all it was a cold wintery day when I found the little guy crawling up the wall in the the teachers' dorm's unheated hallway. 

 

I don't have any Atheists tattoos yet, but I love the quote from Carl Sagan:

    "We are a way for the cosmos to know itself." I think it sounds so beautiful! To know we are part of a grand universe, and even perhaps a multiverse, and we are a tiny, small eensie weensie piece of it all and the more we are able to observe, the more fascinated I become with what a wonderous beauty I am greatful to be a part of. There is something to be said of knowing that not only are we star stuff, but we are alive, and in the position to observe the ever changing astonishment of space. I don't see any fear in death, for living is such a wonderful experience alone, I couldn't ask for anything more than the opportunity to make a difference within this place, however small and insignificant that change may be.
