U2-Related Tattoos @ 04:31 pm

angelkitten13:
I know in the past, there has been the occasional U2-related tattoo, here and there. I just wanted to share mine:





That pic was taken right after it was finished. It's actually three weeks old now (I got it on Dec 21st) and it healed really well. I must add, however, getting it on my right ankle hurt like a mother!

It's funny when I show it to people. If they're not a fan, they have no idea. :)

This is beautiful! I don't have the guts to do a tattoo, but whenever I think of doing one that is connected to U2, it's this one they I want the most. Thought I'd probably do it much smaller, lol. (:

Thank you!!

Tattoos aren't bad. I have three and the one on my ankle hurt the worst. (The other two are on my left shoulder blade and upper left arm) It really depends on your pain threshold.

This was only "symbol" of theirs that I could find that I could live with. Although, the dove might have worked--if I was more spiritual.

This is only 2 inches across. It's good size, but not too terribly huge.

Yes, it just says so much and I love it. Plus, ATYCLB is one of myfavorite U2 albums.

I like that :D I always considered getting the suitcase but ended up getting lyrics. I'll probably end up getting a small version of this at some point on my wrist.

I have the heart suitcase, one on each wrist. the lines are thicker and most people think it's a camera with a heart-shaped lens, which is a cute idea, I think.

That sounds really cute! I never thought of it that way. But mine is definitely a suitcase.

I've thought about getting the same symbol somewhere...probably on my shoulder blade or something. It looks fantastic!

I've been wanting a U2 tat for a couple years now, and just haven't had the $$ or the time to go get it done right. I plan on getting the bassline to MW done around my left ankle. And I figure the pain can't be any worse than getting the small heart/vines that I have done on my lower back (pretty much done right on the small of my back, right where my behind meets my back).

I found having this done on the outside of my right ankle really painful. The one I got on my left shoulder blade was much, much easier. The new one that I just got on my left arm really stung but wasnt' too horribly bad. I think wrapping around your ankle might be....not so fun.

I'm getting another one here sometime soon-ish in my lower back of a celtic knot in a celtic knot-ish band, with it centered over my spine. I'm not looking forward to it. :| But it will be super awesome when it's done.

When you get the baseline done, will it include the musical bars and notes--like reading music or.....? That sounds really cool! I'm assuming that you play an instrument?

Yes, I plan on actually getting the sheet music to MW done. Ad's bassline. I figure it's fitting...MW is my all-time favorite song, and I have been smitten with him for far too long now. ;)

(And no, I actually don't play. I sing/dance on occasion, but nothing serious.)

i have the same image on my left shoulder. i went with thicker lines though and haven't gotten around to having my heart filled; but certainly a fanatastic image!
