Anyone have interesting stories about personal Tattoo's that you'd like to share for an article that I am currently writing? What I'm looking for are stories about Tattoos that your proud of, ashamed of, those you want to duplicate, or remove. Horror stories about getting inked, or funny stories about the process, odd places you've been tattooed or seen tattoos. You get the picture, anything would be helpful.

PM me if you'd rather keep it personal. I'll need your name and phone number, not for the article (it won't be published in the article), but for my records. If you'd like to remain anonymous, naturally, I'll respect that.

Thanks,

Bill

The weekend before my mastectomy in June 2001, me, my sister and our two best friends (we've all known each other over 20 years) rented a cottage on Flagler Beach. Saturday afternoon after several drinks, they all wanted to go to the tattoo parlor and get various body piercings. I said "hell, no, I've already got a mutilation scheduled for next week!" So, they all went without me and I took a nap.

A few hours later, they come crashing in, I wake up on the couch as they are all hollering "look what we did," and unzipping their pants. They had all gotten matching tatts just inside their right hip bone...you know, that soft little place just outside the bikini line...it was a four leaf clover about 1 inch square with a CHINESE symbol in the middle of it! The symbol is supposed to mean "each other," and the four leaf clover is because we're all of Irish descent, and there are four of us. Implying, I am supposed to get the fourth tatt. I declined at the time, telling them that they had no eff-ing idea what that symbol meant, and backed it up a few days later when I was being wheeled into surgery and the anesthesiologist asked me if I had any more questions. Well, he just happened to be Chinese, and I asked him to write me the Chinese symbol for "each other," and it didn't look a damned thing like that tatt. A couple of weeks later, another long time best friend came down from Alaska and got the same tatt. So then there were four.

6 months later (the week of Christmas) I had just finished chemo and radiation, my hair was about an inch long and I had just gotten a new job. The original four of us got together, watched GI Jane and got really drunk and obnoxious. I got my daughter to drive us to the tatt place in town (she brought the guy so much business he gives her a discount) and finally got mine done. We still joke about what the symbol might mean. One of us is gay, and her girlfriend at the time was jealous of our gang, and used to call it the "eat others" tattoo

Even though I don't know what it means, I've never regretted having it on my body, and don't believe I ever will.

I tried to post a pic of us, but it's too much for me right now to figure out how to make it smaller, so here's the link http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v467/rlrichie/?action=view¤t=Fourya -yas1.jpg

You're right Lolasdeb, that's a great story Rlrichie. BTW, I live 13 miles from Flagler Beach, and I'm Irish! Go figure...

Anyone else care to dive in with a story?

Got my first in 1996 when I visited my uncle in Sarasota Fl. My Uncle and I have been very close since my grandfather passed. He moved to Fl right after he passed and I do not get to see him much. I may add to this with the Allman logo with a remeberance of Brothers Duane and Berry.






My next one will be this. the original mule logo with the three heads for Allen, Warren and Matt. I will put a cross on one for Brother Allen. On the top of the circle will be "Gov't Mule" and on the bottom will be "Music For Your Ass!"

When I saw Eric and Derek in Jacksonville, there was a guy sitting in front of us with a shaved head and a pair of breasts tattoed on the back of his head.

During Bikeweek and Biketoberfest here in the Daytona area, I see every kind of tattoo...probably my favorite is a buddy who had his head shaved, and has a very realistic face tattooed on the back of his head. He wears two pair of sunglasses and you can't tell if he's coming or going. Seriously. Scares the hell out of kids though.

I don't know many Chinese symbols, but I do know that finding a four leaf clover means you're about to get lucky...

I don't have a personal tattoo story to share, but I will pass along this one that I read in William Manchester's memoir of his experience as a marine in the Pacific Theater in WWII: it seems he was on the west coast about to ship out, and being 19 and not knowing what his future held in store, he thought it was time he lost his virginity. So he hooked up with what appeared to be a woman of considerable experience, and as he approached his destination, he discovered a tattoo that read "Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here"!!!

Bill, not to harsh the buzz of your thread but certainly to add another "different" perspective. When I was young there was a tattoo "artist" in Hickory, NC. It seemed to be a right of passage for a lot of the reckless youth in Mooresville, NC to visit said parlor and get a tat often during high school. During one session where several folks I knew got tatted evidently some hygenic princlples weren't followed and all the friends would up with Hep. One of those guys just under went a liver transplant and looks similar to death sucking on a lifesaver and owes it all to that fateful decision way back long ago. His tattoo? A skull with Born to Lose underneath it. Swear to God.

Personally, I'm a blank canvas - no tat's on me.

I have a good friend who was stationed in Okinawa while he was in the Marine Corps. This guy's a HUGE Grateful Dead fan, and wanted a tatoo reflecting his love for the band.
One night in Okinawa, he decided to honor his favorite band by having one of their images tatooed on his upper arm. His first mistake was gettin' buzzed before the tatoo session. This was a mistake mainly because he got buzzed with the tatoo artist.
The ending result, etched forever on my freinds upper arm is a likeness of one of the 'Dead album covers headlined with the title:

The Gartful Dead.

It reminds me of those Snickers ad's - "not going anywhere for a while?".

Funny story on the Gartful Dead, Rusty. Saw a guy a couple of weeks ago that was shaved and had a barcode tattooed along the back of his neck.

Well...no real story here. I just thought it was about time to get a tattoo. So..for my 25th birthday I got inked. On my right hip...back side that is...I got a wizard with a crystal ball. I dig it. No regrets here. Still thinkin' 'bout my next one. Haven't decided yet.
