  • I was thinking awhile back, about getting a tattoo of a dove on my shoulder with it's wings open. Underneath the wings I was going to put Anderson and Scott, the 2 sides of my family. I still want to do it because I thought it was so cool because a dove means so many good things. Maybe you could do that but put the first letter of all your sisters names on 1 side and the same thing on the other side with your brother's names?

  • i don't know if you like cherry blossom trees cuz they're "too trendy" now but they are really cute... anyway, matbe get that as sort of a family tree with your bros & sis' names or initials on falling petals. or maybe their zodiac signs on stars falling down your spine. good luck on your tattoo! =)

  • You could get a vine twisting around to represent the crazy, tight and closeness. And then put a flower representing each girl and maybe little ladybugs or something for your brothers. I don't know how close you are to your parents but you could also add hummingbirds that are "watching" over the entire piece to symbolize them.

  • You could figure out little things that represented each person. Like if someone is into music, so notes, or a guitar, then if someone is a baker, do a cupcake, etc. Then you can make a design that incorporates each item like a braclet or one that goes up the back shoulder. Didnt know how big you wanted it.

  • My best friend got a tattoo with all of the important people in her life represented. She used a symbol to represent each one. Like for me she has a heart (long story), and for her husband a four leaf clover, and just symbols that represent everyone. She had them all put in a band around her arm with a border made of eternity symbols.

    You could do something like this without doing the same thing.

  • I like forevermom75's idea. You could get it like a charm bracelet or something.
