Friends, let's talk about tattoos. If you know me personally, this might be a touch of a surprise ... I don't have a tattoo and I've never really wanted one. But even if I did feel inclined to get a tattoo, I had NO ideas what I would get. Of course, I've run across some beautiful tattoos around the webs.
Gorgeous, right? (And, no surprise that they're all type, right?? *Wink*) I think tattoos are incredibly special when they're personal and mean something. They've been on my brain lately because Chris is getting his first and he's trying to decide what to get. We talk about it. A. Lot. The reason we're talking about it here today is because I was struck with inspiration on my rafting trip last week, in the form of a shirtless river guide.
What?! He had a GREAT tattoo :).
See this print? I recently added it to my collection .... you'll see where it ended up in our abode soon. But, this sign is significant because forEVER, this sign stood on a building in downtown Portland, right near the river with the city scape in the background. It was a Portland icon, that I always loved seeing when I was little. Especially during the holidays when the nose would light up red. Well, the sign recently changed. Someone else bought the building, blah, blah, didn't want to keep that sign, blah, blah. They ended up keeping the sign, but the words now say Portland Oregon. Not. As. Cool. It made me sad, so I bought the print to remember how cool the original sign was.
Well friends, this river guide? He had the made in Oregon sign turned into a HUGE tattoo across his back/side. It was AWESOME! Immediately I knew that if I were to get a tattoo, it would be some form of this sign. After all, I was *made* in Oregon :).
So who knows. Now that I have an idea, maybe I work up the nerve? What about you guys? Any fun tattoos that you already have? Or ideas for great tattoos?
