    Does anyone have any?

    Often there is a story behind them or a sentimental meaning, I have a few (although not as many as I’d like!) including:

    Traditional full sleeve with Latin text or “lest we forget” and “the brave don’t live forever, the cautious don’t live at all” amongst traditional swallows, a compass to help me find my path, a horseshoe, iron cross for my love of vw’s and choppers in my teens, a classic pin up girl called miss ‘behaving complete with a ruby red ring symbolising my old GSD Ruby.

    I have another iron cross on my back with shading and dot work, my kids names on my wrist and some lyrics on my ribs. The lyrics ring particularly true for me. They are words from a song by a local (to me) band called Mallory Knox. The band mostly sang about mental health which as you most probably know, is something close to my heart.

    what’s everyone else got, and do they have any stories attached?

    That sounds like a full set - but I know what you mean, always thinking of another !

    Personally - various older and newer ones.

    • Small dragon on my back - then completely outclassed when I saw the film - "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" :D - tattoos seem to have gotten much bigger !
    • Outline of one of the Channel Islands on shoulder - no name - you either recognise the shape of the outline, or you do not. Kind of tribal as a Channel Islander would recognise it straight away. It was done in someone's lounge in Pedvin Street - between The Helmsman and the Brit - The Helmsman has gone and it looks all POSH along there now !
    • Various motorcycle brands - large bikes only - active project, not looking back - so no bikes that I have owned in the past being added. New bike, new brand will get added.
    • And Yu-ki - courage - which is really what it is about.

    I'm covered in the things. Arms are about fully done. Right arm nautical, left arm a lot of traditional Japanese. Scottish flag on my shoulder, there's a Ducati 998S somewhere too..lol

    I got them in various places during my life. They all mean something to me.

    I'm just puttin' this out there, but does Banksy do tattoos?
    You have to realise that our Loz is probably beyond the 'Best By' date, and therefore is not so concerned about rejection from prospective beaus. Also, if the bingo wings have begun calling their numbers, she will probably be wearing more than just 'tattoo sleeves'.:eek:

    [Think I'll go out for a while now!:D]
