I love seeing tattoos and hearing about their special meanings. So let's see them and hear about them!

My tattoo is a memorial for my best friend who died in a car accident when we were in high school. I didn't just want the typical memorial tattoo with a name and date and a cross or butterfly or angel wings. I wanted something that was significant to us. So I chose our two favorite animals and had a mutual friend design the main part of the tattoo. The words say "Friends are impossible to forget" in German because we took German together and were actually doing an independent Germany study together the semester that her accident happened.

    That tattoo is awesome and I love the meaning of it.

    Don't have any myself but love the artistry and meanings behind most of them.

    I got this with my husband on our honeymoon. It's my favorite right now. I know, I know, everybody has given me their two cents about us having matching tattoos. The artist that did them is amazing. It sucks that he's two hours away because I will be using him forever!

    Novak I LOVE that 2nd tattoo!

    Here's one of a bunch of mine. But my favorite, nonetheless. It's a lyric from a Rise Against song. It says "how we survive is what makes us who we are". One of two music tattoos I have. I love all of my tattoos even though some don't have meaning and we're from being young and really enjoying the feeling of a tattoo needle haha but I got them all for a reason at the time. No ragrets. Hahahah

    The top left is a version of the Capricorn symbol, bottom left is just because I love Harry Potter, and the right is the start to my floral half sleeve

    This is a tribute piece to my parents. The top date is their wedding day, the bottom is the day my dad died and they were reunited. They were married for 28 years (until my mom passed in 2003). The wedding bands intentionally look beat-up. They had a really rough marriage at times, and got battered and bruised, but they worked through it. My mom was a fiery Aries, and my dad was a Leo, thus the lion's tail and the fire shading. I have 3 others, two of them covers. One cover was to hide the emblem that represented my ex husband in a family tattoo. I change the arrow of Sagittarius to vines and flowers.

    ETA: math

    @Rachel I love the flower to the start of you sleeve. I want to get a half sleeve because I've gotten three on the lower half of my left arm. I just don't know how to tie them all together.

    Couldn't pass this one up...I'm covered! You can see my flamingo pretty good in this one and park of my peacock. I don't have any real meaning behind these ones except I love big birds.

    @Chloe- that's a problem I've been having when trying to figure out what kind of flowers to add in. I'm just afraid the one I started with is too big

    I danced for about 15 years growing up. Mostly ballet and pointe. It was a huge part of my life! I still wish I could get back into it!

    This is my tiny one and only. I'm an Iowa Hawkeye fan for life.

    ETA - it's on my foot. My sis and I got matching ones on the same day. Her's ended up looking squished, and resembles some sort of stubby mushroom. :I

    Here's my shark I got 5 1/2 years ago. I always wanted tattoos and this was the first. It is a drawing I did. My roommate and I were supposed to go on a boat trip to collect some fish and the boat didn't work so instead we got tattoos. Lol.

    This is kind of an awkward picture, lol. This is the largest and most recent of mine. I got it 7 years ago (and its been touched up once), its a forget-me-not and three initials "NMN" that represent three traumatic deaths in my life that happened in a 5 month span. I also have an ankh on the back of my neck I got for my 20th birthday and two tiny tattoos on the inside of my heels that I got when I was 18.

    I have 10 tattoos right now. I'm on mobile and won't kill everyone of boredom with a bunch of pics but here's a breakdown- a Florida Gators emblem and the words 'Florida Gators' on my right foot. I'm a die hard gator fan and I was born in Gainesville. I have a few ford mustang tats (all over my back) because I'm beyond obsessed with the mustang and always have been its

    my absolute biggest passion in my life. I have the word ford on the inner part of my upper arm. A Shelby cobra on my left side, and a celestial moon and stars on my right hip area <---that's my 18 and whatever tat lol. =)
