A Tattoo Poll (aka HELP!)

Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
Okay, so I posted a picture of a tattoo last week that I was thinking about getting. If you are too lazy to click, it would be of L and WB’s birthdays on the back of my neck. But the more I think about it, the more I wonder, would it be creepy to get dates? The girl in the picture has three dates (i.e. three kids), but I only have two. I am scared if would look like that was the life span of one person. You know what I mean. Or that the dates meant something bad. Not something good (which is what they are!). Is it less creepy to get roman numerals even though I don’t know roman numerals? Have the dates written out? Or should I get something totally different?

This is where you all come in! If you vote “Other” you must provide an idea. You must. And no ideas for face tattoos a la Mike Tyson. Although, Mr. Tyson, if you are reading this, I think you looking amazing with a face tattoo. So let’s hear your thoughts. I am counting on you people! And Mom, like I said, “no tattoo” is not an option in this poll. You must pick something!

    oooh tough call! i agree with your issues with the two dates and the roman numerals. i like the idea of writing the dates out as long as it doesn’t end up going from shoulder to shoulder 🙂 but i would stick with the neck. i have a small tattoo on my foot (had it for about 10 years now) and it is pretty faded/blurry now. i know that would happen with any tat but i feel like the foot gets so much action that it fades quicker? that might just be my illogical thinking. anywho – i would be worried that getting small letters/numbers on your foot would also fade and then look like a blurry mess after a few years. (my small flower now looks like a soccer ball).
    speaking of tattoos, did you see the new neck tattoo that chris brown is sporting? what a jacka$$.

    One more thing — what if u have more kids?? Obv. U would add – so make sure there is enough room (i.e., side of foot idea — which I voted for BTW)

    I like the dates on the back of the neck. I have Dillon’s footprint from the hospital on my shoulder and plan on getting the other boys footprints too.

    Okay… I voted something else. I like the neck idea, but I understand where you’re coming from about it only being two dates so it looks like it could be a lifespan type thing. So maybe add in your birthday and your husband’s birthday or maybe add in your wedding date? Then there would be 3-4 dates rather than just two.

    I would put the dates on the back of your neck. I have 2 on my feet and you have to get something that will be big enough to read. If you get them on the side of your foot they might not be easy to read. Just my opinion though. 🙂

    The dates on your knuckles.
