    I would like a new tattoo, it would be for Riley Rae and Honey, I want it to go on my foot. And am open ot with their names or without.

    I have one on my lower back which is a pink star with Honey in it, on my arm I have three pink butterflies and a blue one (blue for Morgan, pink for Naomi-Mae, Honey and Kaysie Blossom and will add a pink one for Riley Rae eventually).

    So any ideas suggestions?

    Soz I didn't want to r&r like the idea of butterflies though or hearts. I want a new one with Daniels name, probably really small on my wrist. x

    That is tough, it is such a personal choice. The last tattoo I got all I knew was I wanted stars. So I went to the tattoo place and looked at their pictures and then I worked out a design on the spot with the artist and it is by far my favourite tattoo now, and it is on my foot. Warning, the foot freakin' hurts... but well if you already have then you know what you're getting into. I would say look at pictures online that are sort of what you want and that will help narrow it down. And put names if you want, but either way you'll know what it is meant for.... Have fun!

    What about cherry blossoms, or a little pretty love bird for each of your girls? xxx

    What months were they born? You could do their birth flowers?

    Make sure a tattoo is what you really want before you get them..

    I had my first and second one done at 19, after wanting one since I was 17..

    please do not rush :)

    and make sure its what you want

    I'd say something like 2 butterflies, birds or shooting stars. Cherry blossom are lovely aswell though.

    Butterflies would be really nice, you could place their initials within the wings.

    Thank you girls. Yes that is why I am asking, I am not rushing into anything :flower: My two I have already mean a lot to me, and it is important to me that this one does too. I like the idea of their birth flowers. They are April and May, so i think one is Lily of the Vally will check that out. Cherry Blossom is gorgeous too.

    I quite like 'Sisters holding hands as they dance amongst the stars' with or without their names under and a few stars around it. Dunno yet though. :flower:

    That quote is lovely!

    I always think cherry blossom is a lovely idea...not just because it's so pretty but because of it's meaning too...I think it is something to do with feminine beauty, and in Japan it is a symbol of life...as it is a flower that only blooms for a really short space of time, and then falls quickly, it's something along the lines of life being something so beautiful, yet shortlived, some of it's meaning I think is taken from buddhism to do with cherishing the beauty in life and trying to let go of suffering. In China, it is something which is very delicate, yet powerful. Could be a bit off with these...but remember researching it ages ago, I really want to get a cherry blossom tattoo! X

    Thank you girls, I have decided to go for a quote from a poem with their footprints. The words are 'I am not gone but merely walk within you'.
