Needles with Ink

Today, google thought I should know about a story that a Harrisonburg, VA television station did about The Tattooed.

Annie Holloob spends a lot of her time reading to kids and [doing] arts [and] crafts from crocheting [to] cross stitch and needlepoint. She also has several tattoos.

You're kidding me! A tattooed woman does cross-stitch? Or is it a cross-stitcher is tattooed? It's just so crazy! (You realize that is sarcasm, yes?)

So here's a non-Friday quiz:
Are you tattooed? If you are, pop a note in the comments telling us what it is. If you're not tattooed, you can still play: what would your hypothetical tat be?

Just for the record, not tattooed. No hypothetical tattoos either. But I'm not so shocked by the tattooed cross-stitcher.

As of 9:47 a.m., I am the only yes vote. Which makes me inexplicably sad. I mean -- if I can get a tat, anyone can.

I'm looking for ideas for another one, tho, and will watch the comments closely.

I'm a no and don't plan on getting one. Tattoos are too permanent for me, I change my mind so much I'd probably hate the design as soon as I had it done.

I don't have one. My sister has 2, as does my best-friend-since-kindergarten. I've seen how they fade, which is my problem with them. That, and my extreme dislike of needles.

If I were to get one, it would probably be something very geometric, along the lines of a Celtic knot.

Still searching for the perfect design. My sis has gotten 3 of them since turning 50. I've given some careful consideration to something paying tribute to my father or maybe the Red Sox...

WOW! Who knew I'd be one of the few and proud!??!

I have a small sheep (think SBesque) on the small of my back. It's not seen unless I want you to see it. It's very sweet and I'm contemplating adding a pudgie girl to go along with.

Yep, I have 4... 3 designed by me + one Felix the Cat LOL

Never! Well, probably not. :)

I have a salamander on my back that I've had re-done (due to fading) and I plan to have more in the future! :)

No tattoos for me, the big procrastinating chicken that I am.
I would want a small Asian (Chinese or Japanese)character that meant some profound personal characteristic that kind of describes me. All I can come up with is "vanilla" or "crabby". And then there is my fear that the ink artist would invent the symbol, and due to my lack of any fluency in any Asian language, I'd be branded for life with something that reads "dumbass".
That Celtic knot someone mentioned would be a nice (safe) alternative...

I have two - both Egyptian (an Eye of Horus and a Winged Isis). Funny I was just discussing tattoos with Inside Number Twenty!

One...a badge of honor after the demise of a hellacious relationship.6 years of oppression will make any girl run out and do crazy things like get a tattoo. At least I had sense enough to put it in a place where only the worthy have seen it (my ass).

Renee said...

I've got two and am thinking of getting another. (A black cat on my shoulder, a panda on my ankle) I admit that I got them before I started stitching though.
