    Got any tattoos? Post yours up! Here's mine -

    This one is a bunch of flying crows composed into one big crow. This was worn on the backs of film crew jackets of the movie, The Crow: City of Angels and I fell in love with it. I've always loved The Crow, both the graphic novels and the movies, and I always will. I got this in 2002, and I don't regret it one bit. It also holds a special place because my deceased sister was with me when I got it.

    This is on my right shoulder blade -

    This one is ASL - American Sign Language, fingerspelled out. Some here may not know, but I'm Deaf. Before ASL came along, the oral method was king. Deaf people's hands were tied, handcuffed, or somehow restrained behind their backs in order to force them to learn how to speak. Often the hands were placed on the table and beaten with something, a ruler or a switch, if they tried to sign. That's why the handcuffs are in the tattoo.

    This tattoo represents the freedom of Deaf people brought by ASL. The concept is that ASL set the hands on fire, which is letting it melt the handcuff restraints brought on by the oral method in the past.

    This is on my right upper arm -

    I want more, but this fish hobby, my car hobby, and being unemployed keeps getting in the way. :(

    Zeez, wow I did not know that about our history and deaf people. Thats horrible.

    I work at a long term care facility, and we are currently exploring the option of having a "deaf unit" where there will be staff that know how to sign. I think its a great idea! :)

    oh and I don't have any tattoos :(

    The footprints is the first one I had done. The colours are pride colours. For anyone that doesn't know what that means - I am Gay and those are the gay pride colours. It is on my right arm

    The 2nd one is the underside of my left arm and the third pic is the top side of my left arm. It goes all the way around my arm.

    My partner of 11 years has the other half of the tree on her back.

    That is all I have so far, but I want to keep going....

    This is my 1st tattoo. It's on my chest.

    I got it in memory of my son Jesse who was born still at 23 weeks. My husband has the same tattoo on his arm.

    ZeeZ love the ASL Tats. I'm not deaf but I do sign and have interpreted where I used to work. There is a very rich deaf history if anybody wants to dig and many very talented people who just happen to be deaf.

    I don't have any tats, couldn't get over what they would look like 20-30 yrs down the road :)

    Awww :( Sorry. Sweet little foot...



    I finally got one after thinking long and hard (decades). Didn't want something I would regret or change my mind about. I figured since I loved Suzuki since I was 9 or 10 (about a 100 years ago) I would be safe in getting this...

    Please don't ask where it is :p
