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.

Oh a professional all the way! Good tattos aren't cheap and cheap tattos aren't good. Learned that lesson the hard way...

And you know what? I agree! I'm going to keep looking. I have about a month before my birthday to decide. 

Quoting rfhsure:

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.

Quoting paganbaby:

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.

Quoting rfhsure:

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!

if it's an artist you trust, do whatever evokes the feeling you want to express. I'd love to see what you come up with :) be sure to update!

Post some that are your style,lol. And thanks. It's very meaningful to me :-)

Not my style but the meaning for you is great.

While I'm at it, I think I'll try drawing something up for you, just for fun. I won't be offended at all if you don't like it, but I feel inspired :p

I have the shop in mind. I think I'll spend some time looking at their portfolios and see which ones I feel most drawn too. And for sure! You guys will be the first to see my new tat :-)

I am contemplating my next tattoo and have been considering either a phoenix or a lotus flower (leaning towards the lotus). They both represent rebirth etc. and much of what you listed I have faced and overcome as well. I do like the tattoo but I think you can find much better. I have tons of photos and ideas saved already if you would like some more inspiration!

My son's namd is Phoenix and the man and I both want to get  a phoenix tat in the near future!  We don't want them to match and we both are having THE HARDEST time finding ones we like lol!  Keep us updated--I'd love to see it once it's done!
