Tattoos again

I keep thinking about tattoos. I wanted a jellyfish tattoo, but I've been thinking about it, and I'd rather have something with more meaning to me.
When I was in elementary school I was obsessed--and I mean absolutely obsessed--with wolves. I knew everything there was to know about wolves (though I've forgotten a lot of things), and I wore those grandma-style dark blue tie dye howling wolf shirts basically every day. I also loved werewolves.
I'm not so obsessed anymore, but I do still consider wolves to be my favorite animal, and I feel like I'd like to combine my wolf obsession with my physiology/osteology/pathology obsession.
So I decided on a wolf skull.
Not sure where I'd get it, but I'm leaning towards a tramp stamp. I hate the connotations of tramp stamps, but I honestly do love the way they look. I once saw a girl bicycling though town with a tramp stamp of a photo realistic freshwater bass. It was awesome. I'd love to have a realistic, non-cliche tramp stamp like that.
I googled up some wolf skull photos and naked-lady-back photos and combined the two until I found a design I liked, adjusting the jaw on the skull so it's mouth isn't gaping quite so much.

Of course, whatever I decide on wouldn't be something I'd get right away. I want to be absolutely certain about my design, and once I'm 100% sure, I'll wait a year or so, just in case. I'd hate to get a tattoo I'm going to regret.

I'm also still pretty set on my Stephen King quote tattoo for my left wrist. Times new roman font, as clean and simple as possible.
"He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts."

Speaking of IT, apparently they're going to remake the movie version! I'm so pleased. The movie is good, but it's nothing like the book, and no where near as good.


Day 12 — Whatever tickles your fancy


  1. I really like the quote from It, just keep in mind that wrist tattoos can be pretty painful, but I'm sure you already that.

  2. I think you'll love this one.. "Ravyn Wolf Tattoo"

  3. I have a wrist tattoo. Its not that painful.

  4. i have this tat. "he thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts"...i'm thinking about "all work and no play makes jack a dull boy"...
