Table Topic Tuesdays

Today I'm participating in Nut House Mama's Table Topic Tuesdays!


Photobucket

This week's question is:

if you were to get a tattoo right now, what would it be?

I have three tattoos already. You can read about my most recent ink here.
I am planning number four now. This one is going to represent me and my children, but I am torn about what design to get.
I LOVE turtles and owls, so I either want a Mama turtle and four baby turtles, or a Mama owl and four little owls.
I'm leaning towards the owls because I could put them on a really cool-looking tree. But the turtles would be cool too...so...now you see why I don't actually HAVE tattoo number four yet!
I already have number five planned; it's going to be a heart with a paw print in the middle, to symbolize my commitment to animals & animal rescue. But I want the kid tat first, so for now, I'm stuck!
How about you? Do you have any tattoos, or do you have any future ink plans?

{I'm also participating in Tuesday Tag-Along today, check it out!}

Just got my 2nd! A kid tat too...sort of, I think you saw it, the zodiacs of the hubs, myself and both boys amoung a bed of Irish shamrocks! I LOVE IT! My older tat is a tribute to my brother, a butterfly and a crescent moon, meaning a soul set free to fly. I think the turtles would be so cute! But you are right, the owls in a cool tree would be awesome too!

Stopping by from Tuesday Tag-Along. Following you now. To answer your question I have three and the hubbys told me I'm not allowed to get another one. {pout} but if I did it be something for my kids.

If I ever get brave enough to get one mine is for the family. An old fashioned Santa head without the hat and a circle of ivy on his head instead. It'd represent hubby, son and daughter all in one. Hubby is Chris so Kris Kringle for him,son is Nicholas so St. Nicholas and daughters middle name is Ivy. Covers them all.

OK LOVE the turtle idea!! On a rock, in a pond....so cool!

Brandy said...

I like the idea of the owls in the tree. A literal family tree!

My Mercurial Nature said...

I love your ideas of momma animal with babies. I've been trying to come up with something that i just love to represent myself and my kiddos...but nothing screams, "yes, that!" to me.

Shannon said...

I'm going to vote for the owl! That's a cute idea, with the tree and all.

Thanks for playing along today! :)

I don't have a tattoo. But for you I like the idea of the owls in the tree but the turtles would be cute also following the Mama turtle on a log with their little heads popping out. HAVE A BLESS TUESDAY!!!

I have a blue butterfly on my lower back..that's all I want :)

I love to see turtles all lined up on a log - so that's what I saw when you mentioned a turtle family.

As for me getting or having a tat - no no no no no. Not going to, can't make me, won't do it. But I don't have any strong opinions on others getting them, as long as they aren't on their face. :)

Facial tats (other than eyeliner tats - I thought about getting that one time) give me the willies.

I think owls sound like a great idea for a tattoo. I have two and want a couple more.

Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day.

I just wrote about my soon-to-be tattoo on my blog... It'll be a celtic knotwork circle on my calf...

Myya said...

I totally see your dilema. Both would be so fun! Anthing having to do with your kids is an awesome idea! I think the owls in a tree would be super cute!!! I don't have any tats... I'd love one but hubby says no. If I could decide on something I REALLY wanted I would battle him but until then I let him pretend he wins.

CaraBee said...

I have thought about getting a tattoo to symbolize my daughter. I really like the owls on a tree idea. I can definitely picture that. Not sure if it will ever happen, though.

shortmama said...

I have one so far of my oldest as a baby with fairy wings on my shoulder blade. Im getting the same one of my youngest daughter on the opposite shoulder blade some time this year. I already have ideas for number 3 and 4 as well. Got to catch up to my hubs who has 5 and still going

I love the owl idea. Mostly because, like you said, you could do a very cool tree too. You know, a family tree. Very cool.

I have a butterfly tattoo and I'm going to be adding four little butterflies to it. My bro is a FAB tattoo artist so YEAH ME! ;)

Fiona said...

I clicked on the link to check out your latest tattoo (lotus flower on back) and I love it! And I love the fact that it is meaningful for you.

Never had a tattoo - there are many I like - but I'm a wimp... If I were brave enough... It would probably be something something small - a butterfly maybe..

Love to you

Heather said...

I have two-and if I were to get anymore (I want ONE MORE!) it's going to be a tiny little teal heart in honor of being a survivor, and every dollar i spend for the tattoo, i will match for the joyful heart foundation!

Renee said...

This meme sounds like fun! I have considered getting a tattoo even recently. I don't have any at all. So I really don't know. I like the idea of the Owl tattoos! Sounds cool!

Turtles are cute. I go back and forth on whether to ever get a tattoo but if I did, I think it would be a lioness and her cubs or something to do with Aquarians (me and my kids are all water bearers). Poor hubby doesn't seem to get a look in ;-)
