(resists urge to make tatooine pun*)

This year, for the first time, I started to want a tattoo. I probably won’t get one (I’m suspicious that the urge coincides with the approach of a significant birthday; all of my exes had stupid tattoos that they either did regret or should have;  all the people whose tattoos I like have skinny/buff arms and I may be confusing the two; I’m saving all my pounds for a shed at the moment #rocknroll) – but I love my tattoo mood board and will keep adding to it, anyway. Here are my favourite images from it.

You’re right, what I really want are wings, not tattoos, but I haven’t figured out how to get those yet.

I will graciously settle for a winged horse, if anyone has one spare.

*actually I’d love to make a tatooine joke but can’t think of a good enough one. My best efforts were ‘Gotta be in it to Tatooine it’, ‘You are the wind beneath my Tatooine’, ‘Tatooine will I be famous’. Suggestions welcome…

    I’m a little bit of a tatooaholic – 7 and counting. I have to say I’ve never regretted a single one 🙂

    I love the explosion of words one!

    I’ve wanted a tattoo for ages. But I could never settle on an image I wanted with me for the rest of my life, so I never got one. And now days it seems like money could be better spent elsewhere.

      I know what you mean – I think I was lucky that so many people I hung out with as a teen had bad tattoos, since it meant I stayed cautious about doing anything permanent. Maybe I’ll wait til I’m 70 – more likely to be a choice that really reflects me, & less time to regret it!
