Are these called socks, if tattoos on your arms are called sleeves? They even look like colorful socks from a distance.

Leggings.

Knife goes in, guts come out.

I'm not normally a big bright color or cartoon guy, but I'll be damned if these pieces aren't some of the nicest of that style I've seen. I live in the northeast and would be tempted to wear shorts all year long if my legs had work like this.

The center of sunflowers have always freaked me out & made my skin crawl.

Amazing tattoo!

Wow! When you zoom in and see all the detail work of the middle, that takes a seriously steady and focused hand. Very nice!

Well, wouldn't that have been special!

So do you tell people you only have one tattoo or....

This has a very Rings of Saturn feel to it. I like it a lot.

Awesome ! Did you plan the entire thing ahead of time or wing it as you had work done ?

You should have titled it : First tattoo! (For the lolz) (Would be sick a full back piece as a first tat!

On point now : Amazing art

Nice, I like the attention to detail in the eye and all the hair. Very cool, I would be happy with that.

Thanks I'm very happy with it! Especially considering I was asking him to work with a lot of detail in a small amount of space. He definitely made it work.

Yea he's awesome! That was taken 3 hours after we finished it yesterday.

Sergio Sanchez is legendary , how old is that tattoo?

Always a bridesmaid... my new Not You tattoo by Frankie Mejia, Regeneration Tattoo, Allston, MA

The line work is so CLEAN. Beautiful.

Edit 1: thanks for all the upvotes! Didn't expect them.

The standard design is to put the name of the one you love in the ribbon, or something more generic like "Mom", to demonstrate your love and devotion. The joke here is that OP is "always the bridesmaid and never the bride" and so doesn't have a name to put in the heart. It basically tells the viewer "My heart belongs to no one and certainly not you," taking something that could be hurtful to them and turning it into a cheeky message that makes light of the whole expectation. Simple and clever!

Really nice traditional tattoo and I relate to the sentiment.

I don't understand what it means can you explain?

Now that he's on your leg, stairs will never be a problem for him again! Nice!

maybe because my leg has swollen like a professional body builder haha.

If I sound pleased about this, it's only because my programmers made this my default tone of voice! I'm actually quite depressed!

That looks like it's holding up pretty nicely! I like the detail of the crystals on the right side.

Incredible combination of many Wiccan things without being too over the top.

Thank you! I'm pretty impressed all the little shading details are holding up super well still!

You have nice violets. :)
