I want to cover up the bird on my ankle with more ivy. What do you think? Sorry about the crappy drawing. Obviously a rough idea.

Are you looking to use the same poison ivy theme? I think you have a great idea – just need to have your artist finalize it.

Yes, I would like to have the same ivy as I have on my hip. What do you think?

Personally, I like the idea. But, the key is that it is what you want and what makes you happy. Your artist can refine it to be exactly what you want.

I just recently completed my first tattoo. Some people consider it outdated – but it is a design that spoke to me and represents what I wanted it to say about me as a person. If the design is what speaks to you, then go for it!

I didn’t know tattoos could be “outdated.” Screw what other people think. Like you said, it’s such a personal thing. I really love nature so that’s why I want the ivy.

The design I chose has some tribal lines in it. To many, tribal is considered to be old hat….but not old hat enough to be “traditional.” 🙂 The only one, though, who has to be content with it is me…and I love the result.

I guess that makes me outdated because I have a tribal too. 🙂

Welcome to the forum.

Funny your handle is “Poison Ivy”. My left leg is going to be a tree trunk with bright green poison ivy growing up the tree.

The droplets on the side are honey and papaya juice from the existing honey bee tattoo.
Lichen and moss will be between my toes, and around the roots. Perhaps a little water like I’m walking along a stream.

Tattoos are for the living. Tombstones are for the dead. Get a tattoo for yourself!

Oooh. That sounds cool. When are you getting it done? I think I’m going to hold off on this one for awhile. I just ended a 4.5 hours session on Friday and that was a rough go. I need to recover a bit.
