ladybird tattoo by rockgem ladybird tattoo by rockgem
my cute tattoo of a pair of ladybugs on my foot - yes i must be some contortionist type to fit my foot under the scanner ><
its cute & everyone who knows me argues 'please tell me you going to get something demonic and such to balance this one out!' lol - maybe eventually....

my first tattoo :la: me and some friends had a day off and were a little bored, so this happened, my plan was always to get extensive tattoos but i wanted a little one first to see if i could handle the sensation

i have no idea - but i settle into it and the sensation becomes almost 'relaxing' although i am not sure if that is quite the right word

Very adorable tattoo! Small and simple, and the coloring is nicely done.

:giggle: thankyou - this was my first tattoo, the little things in life have always fascinated me and i remember growing up i used to have this clay stuff you cooked in the oven to harden - well i remember making my mom a ladybird pin from it - and shes still got it & i remember my dad gave me a fascination with the natural world bugs insects birds plants etc & i always remember being so much smaller than either of them and looking up at them

I agree with that. All my tattoos have meaning and stories behind them as well - so will the ones I'm planning for.

:nod: the worst thing i think i could do woudl be to walk into a studio, pick a piece of flash and say 'i'd like that' :no: i know so many people who have done that and then regretted it i'm a firm believer that a tattoo should be as unique as the person who has it

To each their own I say, for some people the story is in the spontaneity of the choice. Others it's in deep thought, depends on the person you are. I spent at least a year on most of mine, although some it only took a few months for me to decide and get them. It all depends.

very true, i know what i want but it all boils down to getting the design 'right' once i am happy with it from paper to skin its usually a quick process

It's a very good thing :rofl: The foot seemed to work pretty well in the scanner, though. Although sitting on the scanner would have been more comfortable XDD

yup :giggle: don't ask how i managed it lol - tricky balancing lol because the tattoo is on the top of my left foot :) - i'm glad its summer atm - cause i can show it off and usually it gets a load of compliments cause it might not be big or impressive but its certainly got a degree of cuteness about it

how long did it took to make it?

well i designed it myself took say an hour maybe to get it exactly as i wanted it then i forget how long i was in the tattoo studio- not that long really because i didn't look at the clock and i was too busy laughing and joking with my friend who came with me and the tattoo artist himself
