I have a Bouncing Souls tattoo. The heart is pretty generic. Everyone has it. I tried to do my own little thing by making the middle a picture of the Wabash Valley (where I'm from.)

I've got 2 tattoo's. My first was the Bad Religion logo on my right leg -




And my second was the Sink Or Swim coverart on my right arm!



I'm hoping to get some more soon. I really want a Joe Strummer/Clash tattoo. I might get Joe's guitar on the inside of my arm.

I got my tattoo when I was 18, eight years ago, and the funny thing is that I kinda don't notice it now, although I still like it. It cost me about 35, IIRC.

FWIW, it's the Therapy? Gemil logo --->http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

I'm not sure if I'll get another one. I'm half-tempted by the Welsh Dragon, though.

That said, all the tattoos I've seen on here are pretty darned coo.

Took about 2 hours I think, maybe a bit longer. It cost 140, but was a present from my dad so I can't complain! The picture doesn't really do it justice, it looks better in real life! Trying to decide whether to get the sky done red.

Working that cover art into a whole sleeve would be the coolest thing!

Yeah, I mentioned to the guy I was possibly getting a sleeve in the future - so he sized and positioned the tattoo accordingly! Totally stumped on what to add to it at the moment though.

I have been considering getting a Sigur Ros tattoo done on my ankle but everyone seems to get Sigur ros tats rather it was something more unusual.

I've got 2 tattoos - a star design that I came up with myself on my left wrist and a swallow on the other wrist. I agree with the idea of keeping the design for at least 6months to see if you get bored of it first cos that's the last thing you wanna do! I've had mine for about 6months and I still smile them everytime I see them!

Julianne your tatts are amazing. Really love them!

My stars on my left wrist

The swallow on my right wrist Smile

The star one was based on a jumper that I saw in a shop and wanted to design my own version. I'd always wanted a star tattoo but not just a single star or anything too simple.

The swallow is based on why sailors used to get swallows. When they were travelling far from home the swallow meant that they'd always return home safely from long trips cos a swallow always goes home to roost. I got the tatt cos I travel a lot with work to India, Barcelona, Florence and Paris so it just reminds me of home and kind of keeps me safe I guess!

This is my biggest one.. you can't really see the detail very well, the shading of the outline stars looks much cooler close up..



might be a bit better in this one..



As far as band tattoos go, as long as they're tasteful they can be great. Most of the ones in the myspace album are lovely. I've got the blue skies sign from the ataris album cover on my shoulder blade at the top of all the music, mostly because I just love the picture..done 6 years ago and I still love it Smile But then I am a geek and also have the rebel alliance logo, which I still love too Cool

Haha no way! Yes I was coming back from Heathrow! Was I wearing a grey hoody and looking massively rough/tired?? Had just got back from Boston where we saw one of the Jimmy Eat World Clarityx10 dates.. but thank you if it was me! Smile

Yours are very pretty - love the shading on the swallow

haha i realised as i pressed send that my post sounds a bit creepy and stalker-ish! Razz but yeah it was def you cos i loved the way the stars had been shaded around and not filled in and we could see the start of the music. we wondered how it carried on and now we know!

im very proud of my swallow so cheers for that! Smile
