Love all the tats, everyone, esp. the Born to Knit. That is just amazing.

I have a couple myself - a butterfly and a turtle - nothing as edgy as a skull with knitting needles stuck through it! :D

I started at age 21. I now have 4 and am still waiting to get 1 more.

I have 2 dove facing each other under a small heart on my ankle, a heart and flower with my DH's name inside, a strange tribal thing on my calf (don't know what it is, I just loved the pic the tat artist was doodling when I walked in ), and a humming bird on my neck with vines trailing down to my shoulder wrapping around my name (which btw the tat artist decided to spell "Apryl" for artistic sake).

The one I want is 2 sea horses (cartoony cute ones) facing each other with their tail interwining and then putting my son's names by each one.

But that yarn scull thing is pretty cool

When I turned 40, I got my first tattoo for my birthday while visiting back east. It was done by a woman in Lewes, Deleware who had won best tattoo'd female in the whole wide world. Her entire leg was a huge jungle scene and very cool. Well, mine was a little butterfly on my ankle that took all of seven minutes!

I decided then, that wasn't so bad, I'll do this every year for my birthday! Well, the next year, off my husband and I went to the tattoo parlor....he was buying it for my present. I gave the man the picture I wanted...Winnie the Pooh w/a butterfly net chasing a butterly and had it put on my other ankle. This one took about two and a half hours and was some of the worse pain I have ever experienced....needless to say, I have missed my birthday tattoos the last seven years, but each time we go to Hawaii, I always say I am going to get a henna one on my foot....perhaps this December when we are there.

The skull and yarn between the boobs is a bit wild for my tastes, but it is interesting!

Children don't care how much you know....they want to know how much you care.

Don't mess with dragons....they think you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup!

Oh man... that born to knit tattoo is awesome! I love the one Kemp posted too. very cool. I have 5 tattoos, but I only have a picture of two right now. They're both on my upper back (and no, my name is not Dharma).

and my little shadow, Willow

There has to be a correlation between the amount women knit and the number of tattoo's they have. Maybe a facination with needles :D

Love the ink
LOL...could be the fascination with needles, but I didn't knit until after I got all of my tats....I mean...expect for the one on my foot (which took many, many hours bc there was a great deal of pain involved, but it's the only one that has hurt a bit) where 'flying to knit' wore off !! My son has done 90% of my work & when he gets back in it...I have to have some type of knitting icon....I do so love the yarn with sticks in it ...but I have many others in mind & he can do tattoo most anything
