I am pro tattoo - currently have three. The first two were years in the making - one (my first) is a lynx on the back of my left shoulder - I did not want a "girl" type tattoo - no butterflies, etc. had to be strong and make a statement. Still love it - although it does need to be touched up, it is 20+ years old. Second is a CWS 2005 World Series tattoo on my left ankle - had to do it and am glad I did - love my White Sox and always will!
My last tattoo is a tribute to my beloved DH, who passed away unexpectedly in July of this past year. On our 20th wedding anniversary, it would also have been his 56th birthday, I got a tattoo, over my heart, of his initials encircled by a wreath with a rose and a heart. It is very simple, but elegant.
I am still waiting for a horsey tattoo - I have not been able to find anyone that can do justice to the imagine I have in my head. Not worth it, if it's not going to be exactly what I want . . .

I have two tattoos in my mind for the possible future. One, like yours, is a dragon because that's my Chinese Zodiac. The other I'd like to be a very simple, primitive looking cross. I really like simple symbol shaped tattoos, it reminds me of that cave man Otzi LOL!!
