Tattoos I’d Love To Have

October 6th, 2013
Words can't express how many tattoos I would love to have. I have one on the side of my hip that I thought would be my only one - But I'm craving more! I just want to share the 'potential' tattoos I would definitely love to get sometime in the future. The reason I am holding off for now is because I am going to be searching for jobs after this December since I graduate. I live in Austin, TX and I know people here are very open minded for tattoos in the workplace; but I plan to branch out and I'm not too sure how many places would feel about that... I'm hoping in the end I'm doing freelancing as a business so I won't have to worry about tattoos being frowned upon at a company.

Onto sharing!... And I kid you not, I really want these! :3


1. Card Captor Sakura

Actually, my very first anime I watched was Sailor Moon. I stumbled upon Card Captors and immediately fell in love with the show! It actually surpassed Sailor Moon... I enjoy all magical girl series though; I'm such a sucker for them.


2. Sailor Moon

Yes, I will still consider Sailor Moon a good part of my childhood since it was the beginning of my anime career. This are lovely tattoos - Even the place on the body is perfect! I would definitely try and make them my own style since this art is already someones. Lovely!


3. Harry Potter

I got into Harry Potter in my 7th grade English class. We were required to read a book together as a class and my teacher chose Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone. I was hooked! I remember hating it whenever we would stop reading because class would end so I remember having my mom take me to go buy the book so I could finish it :) It still has a great spot in my heart... I may or may not be waiting for my Hogwarts letter still... I want a very simple Harry Potter tattoo. Just the outline of his glasses and a lightning bolt symbol. I was also thinking about getting "It Does Not Do To Dwell On Dreams and Forget to Live" by Dumbledore on my ribs. I've always loved that line!


4. The Famous 'Ampersand'

I was hoping I wasn't going to fall under the 'graphic designer' spell... But I can't help it. They are beautiful! They say graphic designers LOVE ampersands - and sadly, it's kind of overrated... But I have to agree, I love them! They have such beautiful forms. I would love that as a tattoo - Just my designer side geeking out for typography.

Do you guys have any awesome tattoos you'd like to share? Leave a comment with your geekiest one! Or just one you are really proud of ;) I love to see and hear the story behind them.

  • These are all really cool ideas! I don’t have any yet, but I really want to get a super simple tattoo of the origami unicorn from Blade Runner on my wrist or the sigil for House Martell (a sun with a spear through it) from A Song of Ice & Fire/Game of Thrones on my back. :)

    Stephanie – Those sound great! I actually have never watched Game of Thrones and I know, I knowwww I must!

  • I love that Harry Potter tattoo! It’s adorable. I don’t have any ink yet, mainly because I can’t decide what to get or where to start. I like so many tattoos that I feel overwhelmed picking a first.

  • Lori

    It is an overwhelming process! Only cause it is a permanent commitment :/! It’s always a nice thought though – tattoo browsing :P
