    Question Tattoo Meanings...

    Advertisements
    Do you share the meaning of your tattoos with people? I ask because I am always asked what my tattoos mean (ancient Japanese) and I personally don't think its really anyone's business but my own. I keep my tats covered at work, and if I go to a religious ceremony or formal event, I make sure they are covered as well.

    I don't have a problem sharing. Mine is pretty straight forward though.

    Yes if someone asks what they mean, I share it! I don't see why it would be a big deal for someone to be curious about? If you don't want to tell them the meaning, just tell them!

    Why would someone get a tattoo and not want to share the meaning?? Isn't the tattoo an expression of yourself or a period in your journey thru life?

    i don't have any tattoos. if i did and someone asked the meaning, i'd probably want to tell them.
    my friend just got a tattoo a few days ago and will probably be happy to tell people the meaning, because so far people have thought it was a pickle and a dinosaur egg. it's actually the stone in a ring that was her grandma's.

    If you're gonna show it, why not tell them the meaning? I'm proud to tell anyone what I got my tattoo. I mean, I got it for show and for personal reflection. It'd be kinda like saying something in public and if someone doesn't understand, you not explaining because you "dont wanna talk about it."
    Before I knew your name,
    Before I saw your chin and your nose,
    Before I counted your fingers and toes,
    I asked heaven for someone as wonderful as you,
    And every prayer and wish came true.
    I dreamed of you...

    Both of mine mean something very dear to me. One for my father, and another for a friend who passed away. The tattoo actually looks like her. I have no problem sharing, as long as people are respectful. If it's just someone oogling, I probably wouldn't give an explanation as to why I got them.
