Written Word

I love tattoos and most of you who know me know that I love smaller ones that have meaning. I've always wanted to get 'strength' written somewhere on my body as a daily reminder of how how just being strong can get us through most things in life. I guess that's why these caught my eye. If you were to get one word written on your body, what would it be?

if i could get one word tattooed on my body i think that i would get:

believe

there is so much meaning in that one word with 7 characters. it can be used in so many different scenarios. it means so much. i love it.

I have quite a few tattoos. Two words ones actually. Restless and Relentless. Restless on my foot and Relentless on the outside of my arm.

Lovely picture..I like very much tatoo´s to...If I could get one it would definetely say: Courage...cause there where many situations in my life where I really wanted to give up or to run away ..but I remembered that there are more important things in life that fear and that has got me right where I am so its a meaningful word for me.

I'm hoping to get a tattoo on my foot with the word hope. Hope is my favorite word. There is so much in that word.

I'm hoping I can get my husband to jump on board with it! He says I can get it but he doesn't want me to get it now. I won't get it unless he's ok with it!

If I were to ever get a tattoo, I would probably get "26.2" for the marathons I have ran. Mostly because they required so much dedication and effort and I am proud to say that I completed them.

if I chose a word, I think I'd go w/ hope or love...

These photos are so beautiful. I love strength, and would also go with passion or hope :)

I'm also a tattoo lover, and I have several small ones. I do have some script on my shoulder blades... a line from one of my all time favorite songs. I am wanting to get one simple word done soon, but I can't decide where I want it. The word I'm getting is Remain. It sums up so much to me.

I love word tattoos :)

If I were to get one it would say 'changed' in Hebrew. I think about it now and then...

I have two tatoos and I'm thinking about the third!

Chrissy said...

Love them!! I love word tattoos!

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

i am completely obsessed with getting a wrist tattoo.

just hafta decide on what to 'write' there. ;) (kind of an important step.)

Francesca C said...

lovely tattoos!!!

Rachel said...

I love tattoos, but I have the hardest time coming up with an idea and sticking to it. I do have a shamrock on my back, just below my neck though.

I'm not sure what word I would get tattooed on me, but I adore the "love" tattoos on the wrists. So cute!

Oh, I'm swooning! I love the idea of getting a single word tattooed, but John isn't really a tattoo guy and I think one is pushing it sometimes!

Miz.November said...

I have the word "beloved" on my wrist as a reminder that God loves me even when I feel like no one else does. And "blessed" is written across my back.

I have to actually try to come up with other stuff besides words to get inked. I'm so drawn to words.

(I love that "fighter" tattoo.)

Anna Liesemeyer said...

I love the cursive tattoos. Especially when they are small and subtle. All these are beautiful examples.

Heels lover said...

I guess the word would be my mother's name, "Angela" :)

♥ kisses ♥

I like these a lot. Always wanted a tatoo - love the wrist, and the side of the body and also the foot. never gone through with it though!!

Ashley said...

I really like the love ones. They look so professionally done. I still don't have a tattoo and I probably never will...I do like these, though. I don't know what I'd want to get written on myself forever, though, you know?

Style Porn said...

Oh my goodness, you MUST tell me who that girl is in the first picture! I remember looking at her blog long ago and now I can't for the life of me remember what it was called! She has some pretty amazing tattoos as well.

I love looking at other people's tattoos, just not sure I want (any more) of my own.

High Heeled Life said...

I love a tattoo with meaning- a single word would speak volumes .. I I could get the courage up to have it done my word would be ~ Blessed.

Simply said..... I don't have one but admire those who do.

Kay said...

I don't dream of a word, I dream of a masterpiece!!!

Full Back Spread: An angel with huge wings that spread the length of shoulders to hip, in a flowing dress that at the bottom, right at the waist line at the hem of the skirt, instead of feet, there are roots of a tree... lifted... and free

Full Abdomen piece: An eye, within the pupil, the universe....

sigh.

but it will never be anything more than a vision in my mind... :)

and now here, as a comment :))

Love people with the tats!

Leon's Escapades said...

I share this same liking for small tattoos like this. strength sounds perfect. I'd probably go with "LIVE."
I've been set on what I want for quite some time now, I just need to get it!
Love your blog btw! ♥

Signe said...

These are great :)
Love tattoos but have only one myself!

jemina said...

I would want LOVE and Breathe and Be Still :))

XOXO

Cassie said...

Those love ones are my favorite. I would actually get "persevere." Because sometimes that's what it comes down to.

Jennifer said...

"Just love me"

Whenever i'm being irrational or picking a fight with someone I care about or just plain being stupid -- That's my way of showing that I know i'm an idiot - but love me anyways.

weird, i know

adore the idea of a wrist tatoo.

[Unspeakable Thoughts Unspoken]* said...

Hi! thanks for your sweet comment :)
I like tattoos too, I have one at the end of my back, a black cat.

Bromeliad said...

I would get "right" and, if I get a second word, "left" so I would stop confusing them.

Krystal said...

If I do get a tattoo it would be a word, but I have no idea what! (or else i'd pry have it now, haha)

clau said...

Honestly I don't like tattoos but maybe a very little one is not bad at all! I'd like to write something cute!

Sassy said...

My sister has a cool tattoo. It's the word love. There are two things I really like about it. I like where she has it, and I like that it has a period after the word.

Here's a pic:
