I've come so very far in these last 16 years. I don't even recognize myself. I've risen from the ashes of attempted suicide, drugs, eating disorders, abuse. So much Pain... So much Hatred...

But I've let all that go and I feel beautiful and loved. And just to make it more symbolic, I'm having done on my upper thigh. The same spot where I used to cut. The pain will be a good thing this time.

I'm not 100% set on this particular tatto, although I really like it. I'd love it if you guys would post other pics of Phoenixes for me too.

I like those.

My dh wants a tat on his arm. It'll cover almost from his wrist to the crook of his elbow. It's a leafless tree with dead brush underneath it. It looks pretty good and he'll be able to wear long sleeves to cover it.

I'm all about phoenix's, but this one is too simple and the tribal style is overdone in my opinion. I think, especially since it so meaningful to you, you should really go all out and get something flamboyant and beautiful. it's all about personal taste though, and if it means something to you then it makes a good tattoo regardless.

I like these, more abstract, detailed pieces:


all personal tastes aside though, congratulations on reaching this point in your life and being 'reborn'. May many more years of happiness await you!

Is it tribal style? I didn't really notice. I guess I as going for somthing more simple because I'm worried about getting a more intracite one and having it look crappy :-/ I like the first one you posted. It feels very...intense.

it is. I understand that. Are you having a friend do it? or will it be proffessional? If it's proffessional and yo like the artists portfolio, go as detailed as you want! It represents something really important about you, I think you should make it as beautiful as the concept :) not to say the one you picked isn't nice, I just think it could be more powerful.
