There are certain things you can count on with Pinterest.
There will always be a crock pot recipe, a tutorial on how to tie a scarf 10 ways, and at least one pin with a picture of baby animals wearing human clothes on your home page. I’m not kidding. You can go there right now. You’ll see.
Along with these Pinterest staples, you will also find many pins of tattoos.
I’ve not given much thought to tattoos over the years. I’m the kind of person who rarely has the same hairstyle at the end of a season as I did in the beginning. I like to mix things up. Tattoos just seem so…permanent.
As someone who wore crimped bangs in the 80s, I can tell you that trends, and your opinion of what’s cool, does change. That’s why I never took the plunge.
But if you are interested in tattoo ideas and you need some inspiration, look no further than Pinterest!
Pinterest Nightmare #744a: The 3D Tattoo
It jumps out at you, right? (Oh, please don’t let it jump out at me! *sob*)
The 3-D tattoo is the ultimate in body art realism. But beware, if Pinterest is any indication, all currently trained 3-D tattooists are required by law to only depict scary animals, eye balls in unusual places, or body parts that have been damaged.
You’ll find absolutely no flowers or butterflies in this group.
If you don’t have it in you to be scared to death every time you look in the mirror or cancel your next fishing trip, don’t worry. Pinterest has other ideas for you.
Pinterest Nightmare #744b: The Über Fan Tattoo
Sometimes it takes your entire flank to adequately express your intense love for your favorite sports team or movie character. Even thought the rest of us can’t choose between Team Edward or Team Jacob (or Team laser removal as the case may be), über fans don’t have that problem. Their love will never wane! (Until they see that last movie. That one was a stinker, amiright?)
Do you prefer the small screen? Not to worry…
Now that’s what I call devotion to Dorothy and the gals out on the lanai!
Even if you don’t hold über fan status in any realm, Pinterest will still come through.
Pinterest Nightmare #744c: The Tattoo of Those You Love
What could possibly go wrong tattooing your loved ones onto your body?
As this tattoo proves, nothing can possibly go wrong. This idea is foolproof.
Children are a great way to go here because you’re not breaking up with your kids. You won’t be risking a Johnny Depp moment of trying to turn “Winona Forever” into “Wino Forever” on your arm.
There are a few things to consider and be wary of, though.
You know when Lea grows up she will be seething that they didn’t fix her hair properly before doing the tattoo. It will confirm her lifelong belief that they always did like Lara more.
But even if you steer clear of sibling rivalry, you’re not completely out of the woods.
You know this poor lady is going to feel guilty when she doesn’t have room for the face of her 6th cat…and you know there’s DEFINITELY a 6th cat in her future.
I know what you’re thinking. Just stick with words! A phrase that is clever or has a special meaning to you is the perfect accompaniment to any shoulder or ankle!
Pinterest Nightmare #744d: The Quotation Tattoo
They can be simple with just a few printed words, or intricate and elegant with ornate script. They express the essence of your philosophy at a glance.
I’m thinking she does have at least one regert.
Oh, Pinterest. No…just no.
