Yup, I’m a Twit!

More Tattoos

No, not more new ones.  😀  There was some interest in seeing the first three, so I got some pictures of them.

#1 – Got this the summer of 1994, shortly before I turned 21.  It’s on my right leg, a little above my knee. Marvin has always been my favorite.


Funny story – my brother drew this for me.  So, of course, he knew I was getting the tattoo.  He (being a typical little brother) tormented me for about a week, threatening to tell my mother.  Yes, I know I was an adult, but I knew she was going to hate it, and I didn’t much want to deal with it.  So, finally, I went in to her room one day and said “OK, look, I need to tell you something.  You aren’t going to be happy about it, but it’s too late to do anything about it now.  I got a tattoo.”  She just stood there for a moment and said “A tattoo.”  I said “Yes.  I wasn’t going to tell you, but Tom was threatening to.”  “Tom knew?”  “Tom drew it for me.”  She kind of dropped it.  However, a little while later, Tom came into my room and said “I just got yelled at for YOUR tattoo!”  Taught him not to run and tattle anymore!  😀

#2 – This was January of 1995.  It’s on my lower left back, just above the waistline. (Ignore the muffintop action – I was leaning forward so Kris could take the picture of #3, and didn’t realize he was taking this one.)


I got this one to celebrate re-declaring my theatre major after having shifted to strictly a math major for a while.  My friends Nikki and Ann and I drove from school down to the tattoo studio, where they both got their navels pierced while I had the masks done.

#3 – August of 2000. I designed this one myself after finding a website that showed how to draw Celtic knots.


Kris and I had been married for just over 2 years, and he decided to get a tattoo. So, I was inspired to get this one. Seeing as it is RIGHT on my spine, it was a bit on the painful side.  And obviously, the “K” in the middle stands for Kris.  Just in case there was any question.  😉

  • Hehe. I got to see your bra!


  • So pretty! I love the Celtic knot! I had wanted to do something like that, but have so far stuck with Art Noveau roses. I love the brother story too. When I got my first tattoo in 1991 my sister was “disgusted” by it. Now I’d be very curious to know if she has one herself 😉

  • lol I didn’t even “see” the K until you mentioned it. Hee! Too cool.

  • Jo

    I especially like the K on your back and how intricate it is.

    Apologies to Aerosmith…
    Ink – it’s my new obsession
    Ink – it’s not even a question
    Ink on the lips of your lover, ’cause
    Ink is the love you discover
    Ink as the bing on your cherry
    Ink – ’cause you are so very
    Ink – with the color of passion
    `Cause today it just goes with the fashion

  • I didn’t see the K til you mentioned it either! very cool!

  • Thanks for sharing! I really like the Celtic piece. Hmm, maybe I should show off mine on my blog….I have a few more than you, though, I wonder if anyone would care.

  • miko

    the celtic knot K is gorgeous, and so symbolic too. Love the design. I’ve been wanting a tat for a while, you are inspiring me!

  • Yeah, I’m with the Celtic Knot Admiration Society! Very cool.

    I designed my (first so far) tattoo. It’s a heart (valentine’s kind, not bloody gore kind) wrapped in chains with a padlock in the center. Surrounding the heart are vining violets (forget-me-nots, maybe). Off to one side is the key that goes to the padlock, with a treble clef handle on it.

    It means, “Music is the key to unlock my heart”.

    I got it after ten years of serious debate, when I was about 28 years old. It’s on my bicep, just like a sailor. My mother, she was THRILLED to see that, I tell ya. Thrilled.
