My New Ink


Here's my new tattoo! My zodiac sign is Cancer the Crab and I have an affinity for spirals of all kinds and find spiral shaped shells especially fascinating. This is the third of my elementals tattoos. I've got a small butterfly for air, a small four-leaf clover for earth (and luck) and now the shell and crab for water, my most important element. I haven't decided on my tattoo for fire, it might be a salamander. Anyway, I'm loving it and showing it off! It took about an hour and a half to complete, with one 5 minute break. Strangely enough most of the time I was biting my fist not to fight the pain but to keep from wiggling and giggling. It was tickling like crazy and I had a helluva time holding still. But it was worth the agony and discomfort and I love it. Can't wait to get more ink!

It looks great!

Tattoos are addicting aren't they? I have one and am planning a second-- both sea turtles, of course!

Very cool tattoo! And it's really personal and unique. I don't have any but I admire other's. :) Happy Ostara to you.

Turtleheart, as a watery person I can respect a sea turtle tattoo, very nice.

Amy, Thanks. If you ever get a tattoo you won't be able to stop with just one!
