The first tattoo I got -- a 29th birthday gift to myself -- was a Celtic design representing the Maiden-Mother-Crone concept. It's the tattoo with the least-good art, but I have no regrets. It's high on my back, between my shoulder blades.
I got the second tattoo - on my upper right arm - in 2006, and it's the Tree of Life, from the base of the rood in the church I attended. It's faded to a lovely silver now, and it's a tattoo I'm very proud of - the artist did a great job with the shading (over the three+ hours I sat there).
The third tattoo - on my upper left arm - is an excerpt from Neil Gaiman's poem "Instructions":
Remember your name.
Do not lose hope. What you seek
will be found. Trust ghosts.
Trust those that have helped you
to help you in their turn.
Trust dreams, trust your heart
and trust your story.
And the fourth tattoo - on my inner lower left arm, just below the elbow crease - is Clyde, the (female) garden spider. The design is based on a photo I took of the spider in my yard, and I have to say that this is the tattoo that I have the most affection for. I suspect she'll fade to silver over time as well.
