gettin' the itch for a new tattoo..

this is nothing new. i feel like almost all of the time except when i'm actually healing from a tattoo, i'm wanting another. they really are super addictive, and besides not wanting my neck, hands, or face tattooed, i haven't given myself any boundaries of when i'll stop.

i'm also pretty confident that i want to keep them all black and grey.

i've had soo many ideas that didn't pan out (a jack white portrait on my left thigh with a dolly parton one on my right.. austin used veto power on this one) and some that i definitely still want (a charmaine olivia silhouette on my back, a bunny somewhere, a frankenstein portrait), but that doesn't stop me from continuing to look around for more ideas!

here's some pretty tattoo inspiration i've been obsessing over the last few days:

have you ever heard of pos?! if you like rap, i recommend checking him out. i love this tattoo of his lyrics.

i really want to get a sister tattoo with kendall! unfortunately, our aesthetic is WAY different, and we can never think of things to agree on. i'd love it if we could do something like these sisters did. <3

source
i've been thinking about a butterfly tattoo around my wrist(ish).. what a weird location to describe, sorry! i'd want a tradition-style one, much like this.. and i have to be honest: i'd probably get some color in it. eep.

i. love. simple. line. tattoos. ugh, this is gorgeous. and the placement! man oh man.

source
snow is my favorite thing! i'd love to get a sweet little hidden snowflake one day. :)

source
i want a brand new tattoo one day, too.

source
i've been seeing tree ring tattoos all over lately. so pretty.

source
i wish it wouldn't be totally immoral to just straight rip off this tattoo. i love it so much!

and here are some that i don't really see as inspiration per se, i just think they're neat or pretty:

  1. oh. my. gosh. i am OBSESSED with the open books!!!

    and i dont have a sister but i LOVE the sister tattoos... perhaps i can convince a friend to get something similar.

    you're really really REALLY piquing my tattoo interest... perhaps WHEN you and bekuh venture to the west coast, i can get my first one!?

  2. Love this roundup... the tree rings just kill me and the placement is fantastic. I don't have any tattoos, but only because I can't settle on something meaningful/symbolic that I want forever. But if I did, you can bet that it'd be some sort of silhouette.

    PS: you should TOTALLY get a Charmaine Olivia silhouette. I love her work sooo much.

  3. eeeeeee I love all of these! I have 4 right now, and am going to get one on my thigh finished tomorrow (I only have the outline at the moment) and I am super nervous. And I really want a sister tattoo also! We always get tattooed together, but haven't gotten a tattoo that is symbolic of our friendship.

  4. Well I think I just feel in love with you because you want a Brand New tattoo!! They are my fave band and I have been thinking of ones to get lately!
    Love all of these!

  5. I know exactly how you feel! I've been itching for a new one for so long now, but can't decide. I've narrowed it down to a Mexican Sugar Skull and an Owl. Maybe I'll just get both!
