If You Had To...

I’m joining Raven’s tattoo-link-up par-tay today!
Photobucket

One of my favorite games to play is “If you had to get a tattoo”….you know, when you're sitting around with your girlfriends at dinner and you've discussed the latest happenings of the bachelor and those fabulous new shoes you just bought.....this is just where the conversation goes sometimes.....
Though I don’t actually have a tattoo and don’t know that I’d ever get one, I'm intrigued by them. And I love finding out what others would get….and where!

So, while I have yet to figure out the “what” part to my own question, I do have four answers to my “where.”

INNER UPPER ARM
I'm currently obsessed with all things Jana Kramer in cluding her inner upper arm tat. Of course, with this tattoo comes a life of religious working out….because a tattoo on a flabby, swinging hangy-down-part is super not attractive. But I love the way it looks on 0% body fat arms!

WRIST
If I were to commit to a tattoo, this is probably where I’d do it. Initials, names and anniversary dates are a no-no (as Eva Longoria learned) and obviously I know my own name and birth date so what to put here is, as always, the big dilemma. But I love the look of something small here.

RIB CAGE
If I was going to go balls to the wall with a tatto, I would get something on my rib cage....I think it's crazy edgy AND if you're ever bored.....you have ample reading material on your person.

FINGER
I can't decide if this is so unique...or looks like you got bored at work and are actually talented enough to doodle on y our own fingers.....either way, I'm intrigued by the inconspicuosness of this location.

So play along…..if you HAD to get a tattoo…..where and what?!

So yeah, now I'm going to take my stick-ons and go link up with Raven and all the seriously tatted people at A Momma's Desires and Pacifiers.

*if* I could get a tattoo (and Ken wouldn't freak out), I would get Schrodinger's equation on the top of my foot (yes, because I'm super nerdy like that) and a heart on my ring finger. But Ken doesn't like tattoos and I don't like needles ... so there you are. :)

Diana Mieczan said...

I adore that little tiny one on the finger. Its such a clever idea! Muah,sweetie.

Nikki said...

First of all, I too love Jana Kramer and her tattoo is a great one. I like all your "spots" for options pretty much the same places I would choose if I ever get courageous enough.

Michelle (michabella) said...

Hahaha. I adore the places you would get one if you HAD to ;)

Ashley said...

i'm such a scardy cat, so i'd prob never get one. although, deep down i've always wanted one lol. i'd prob go with something on the back of my shoulder.

Chelsea Coleen said...

i'd probably get my face on my back.




hahaa i make myself laugh. i dont think i'd ever get one, but i love seeing what people come up with and where they put it!!

Shannon said...

I have a tattoo, BUT if I had to do it over again, I'd go with a ribcage tattoo. They are super sexy yet still easy to cover up for professional reasons.

Whitney @ Everything Happens For a Reason said...

I don't have a tattoo, but if I did, I would want a small one on my wrist. At my old job, if you wanted a tattoo like that, you had to ask for permission WTF. I think they look cool. People always tell me that jobs don't like tattoos. I'm like they shouldn't judge people, if I want to get one than I will, and I plan on working for myself anyway lol

Anywho, I have no idea what I would get on my wrist if I was going to do it. I'm so indecisive.

Ashley said...

If I had a tattoo, I'd definitely choose a spot like the rib cage, although I hear it hurts the worst! I'm too indecisive, but love seeing other people's tats! Haha :)

dottie said...

I LOVE the small one on the finger. So cute!

Young and Fabulous said...

im with you on this ENTIRE POST ashley!! i love playing the "if you had to get a tattoo"

my mind changes all the time which leads me to believe that i dont think i could handle getting one because i might hate it in a year! scary haha

but i absolutely love the wrist and inner arm. The finger is very different!

i also think inner ankle is okay as well but since that part of your body is mostly bone, it might HURT!

ill stick with Henna until I can control my fear hahaha

xoxox

Young and Fabulous said...

i just lol'd at chelseas comment hahahaha

Rissy said...

I was seriously considering a rib cage tattoo right after Nick died... I commented on a girl's foot tat in a bar bathroom once and she proceeded to pull her dress up to her neck to show me how bad her rib cage tattoo hurt... I was a little in shock but the "this hurt sooo bad,let me show you" really stuck with me haha

J and A said...

I have one on my rib cage. Love the little finger one. I'd love one on my foot or back of the arm. :)

Holly said...

I love wrist tattoos, and I so agree with you on what NOT to get there. :)

maggie_rane said...

I can't commit to a decorating style, let alone something as permanent as a tattoo. BUT if I HAD to, it would be a white ink skeleton key on side of my right hip.
White ink fades in time and you wouldn't be able to see the tat unless I was in a bathing suit.

undomestic chica said...

I want one on my ribcage so bad but it hurts. Someday I'll get the guts to do it....maybe. I love your choices. I kinda like the finger one, and the good things about wrist tattoos is they barely hurt.

Alex said...

I actually have one! It's a teeeeeeeny tiny heart to the left of my hip bone. So it's only visible to the public when I'm in a swimsuit. But I secretly want another one on my rib cage. I hear it huuurts though, so I will never do it.

Alyssa said...

I Jana Kramer's music and tattoo!! And I have always loved wrist tattoos. I have friend who tattooed both of her wrists and it looks awesome!

Jocelyn said...

If I had to get a tattoo, it would have to be on my middle finger! ;) just teasing! I don't think I could ever get one, that's way too permanent. have a great day!

Britt said...

I have my husbands name tattooed on my wrist and he has mine. I know it is one of your no-no's ;) It was something I always said I wanted, but never thought I would go through with it. On my 25th birthday he surprised me and we got them.

I want another one, but can't decided if anything else means as much to get tattooed on my body.

Sami said...

I have a tattoo on my foot and I would love one on my wrist! All I can think about with the inner arm one is how much it hurts when someone pinches you there so I can't imagine how much a tattoo would hurt haha.

Raven said...

Ashley you would ROCK a tattoo!! Seriously, you would. You already have that cool edgy gorgy vibe going for you, so I would definitely say go for it. For me? ;)

Seashells and Southern Belles said...

hahaahha haven't heard "balls to the walls" in a long time. I can guarantee you I'll say that at work at least once tomorrow, ha

Shayla Y.F.F. said...

i have two tats...both on my back. I figure if I decide in a few years that I don't like them it's not like I can see them anyway so I'll just pretend they aren't there. My first tattoo was a crown (so I can remind everyone all the time that I'm a princess! ha!) and "twenty-four" because that was my dads bball number in high school in college. That one basically means that I'm daddy's princess. The other one is the bible quote "To whom much is given, much is required"...my mom used to say this to me all the time. It's one of those life lessons!

I would get another one on my shoulder but I don't know what yet...

Taylor said...

You are my twin!!! haha! i have every single one of those places except the finger..but I think a mustache is in order!
I think when we all go to vegas you have to get a tattoo!

that is our main goal! get ash tatted up!

Erin said...

I have always wanted one on my ribcage, but I keep chickening out!


Don't forget to check out my Mary and Dyer giveaway!

twiggy@thedirtlife said...

ashley?! i know you!! first off, i did not know you had a blog. so glad i found you, by chance!

in case you haven't figured it out, it's amy, hunter's wife! from ol' beaufort, and your newest follower.

so, to play your game, i have a couple tatoos already, one on my foot and one behind my ear. but, i've always wanted to cover my entire foot with them.

meghan said...

i don't know if i would ever get a tattoo either, but those places that you mentioned are great places to get them. i especially love the rib cage. i feel like that is something is only shown off in very certain situations and is a bit mysterious if possible. i liked this post!

Sara Louise said...

I have one, down the outside of my foot. It peeks out a little when I wear heels without tights but it's easy to hide to so I love it.
If I had to get another one (and I'm thinking about it) I'm considering along down the ribcage... but I'm really liking that little finger tattoo.

Miranda said...

i have 2 tattoos and actually one is a small star on my wrist and it is my favorite...i don't always remember it is there but when i see it/get compliments on it - it makes me happy! :)

Renee said...

I want one on the ribs! But I'm a chicken and don't know if I want something that permanent. But since we're dreaming here that's where mine would be! :)
