Chris Vaggos: Well, interesting, anyway; sounds like the old one that you want to cover dates from before your daughter was born, maybe, anyhow.
I guess the snake significance is for the S shape dictated by the rune shapes that you want to cover. Anyway, what with Moses lifiting up the serpent in the wilderness (John chapter 3, etc.) and the connection with your daughter, you'll probably get a lot of milage out of it, in terms of its meaning and significance to you.
Oops, I spelt it wrong. Anyway, Christian young women, like young men, now seem to be pretty confident about getting tattooed.EliSa, and two of the boys, Joshua is the one who didn't.
Do you already have design concepts worked out for those 4 or 5 future tattoos? some of them faith based, maybe?
RoninJedi: Ty; very interesting.For a couple, I do. One is a Tweety Bird with angel wings and a Halo, which have "Nannie" underneath with her birth-and-death date on my chest. My grandmother passed a couple years back, and she was a huge Tweety fan. Unfortunately, my mom beat me to it and got the same tattoo on her ankle, except hers says "Mom". The funny thing is neither one of us ever mentioned the tattoo to each other!
On my forearms, I plan to get just a simple "James 1:2" and "Proverbs 24:10" - one on each though I'm not sure which will go where yet.
Then my wife and I are thinking of a matching tattoo with a cross with our names written in it, with our names intersecting at the second letter - because it's the same lol.
Yes it was and I was going to put one on my foot but I stopped half way through the S.Christ Vaggos:
Anyway, when one finds the right design, there's something very satisfying about a first tattoo; so I know you want to put the snake there instead, but was the one on your wrist your first one?
Christ Vaggos: Yes, well as placements, I guess wrist and foot kind of complement each other, really. A lot of women do both, of course. Don't know if your daughter's mom has had her first ink, but despite the fact that the gender patterns in tattoo placements are changing, arm and wrist can be very satisfying: it used to be that arm was a preferred male placement (and it is indeed, still) but not any longer exclusively, if it ever was, even.Yes it was and I was going to put one on my foot but I stopped half way through the S.
PS: RoninJedi:my mom beat me to it and got the same tattoo...
Stan: So your DIL is a preacher's daughter? Well, fine. I reckon that there are plenty of preachers' daughters who are happily and confidently tattooed, though, such as with faith based designs.Yes I agree. My eldest son, who is married to a PK, won't get one because he believes the Bible speaks against it. I had to correct his understanding, but bottom line is he doesn't want one. They should NEVER feel pressured to get one or feel pressure to NOT get one. They should be taught to understand the issue and decide from there.
Roads: Interesting; did his wife do it, too? (seeing that the finger tattoo was all about his marriage to her...)I had a Christian friend who had a wedding band tattooed around his finger, instead of wearing a traditional band.
Can't say it doesn't demonstrate commitment. Not a bad idea, I thought.
