I love tattoos and as are always interested in the stories behind them.
That’s why I will show here my tattoos and explain them (if necessary ;-) and wondering what’s your opinion about them ...

I got my first tattoo in 1997. It is very simple but special, because my husband has the same tattoo on his shoulder.
We visited a tattoo convention and choosed this motiv:

In 1998 this griffin has settled down on my back. During this time, we quite often played fantasy games like AD&D. We still play them, but only once or twice a year now.
The griffin is a Guardian who takes care about treasures - in this case he takes care about me ;-)

Iron Maiden’s Eddie has been inked on my right thigh in 2003. I choosed the cover of Live after Death, because it was one of my first albums and have had a big influence on me. Up the irons !

This tattoo was done in 2005 and shows our the first cats which lived together with me and my husband. The cat with the blue eyes (Blizzy) died in the same year because of cancer. Her brother Nicodaemus died in 2009. Both meant a lot to me and I will never forget them.

Last year, I got my fifth tattoo. It is placed on my left thigh :-) The music of Kreator guided me through some hard times, especially in 2011 and 2012 and that’s why there was no other choice for me than choose this one ;-)

A very interesting story behind this tattoo: My tattoo artist is always very busy, so I had to fix the dates for the tattoos 5 to 6 month before. The first session was planned for Aug. 29th. A few month before, Kreator announced to release Dying alive on Aug. 30th and the premiere in Essen for Aug. 29th (SAME DAY as my first session !!!!)
So I have had my first session and drove to the premiere a few hours later and was able to show it to them directly (although it wasn’t ready - it was GREAT !).
I think, I wasn’t more nervous ever in my whole life (except of my wedding day ;-)

This was my last tattoo until today. Of course I have some more ideas in my mind, but there is enough time to continue later on ...

Very nice tattoos :)

I think its cool that you and your husband has the same tattoo…to be honest, i like all your tattoos!
I think its great that the tattoos you have have a meaning behind them!
Some people just tattoo some weird-ass shit here and there and dont know what they stand for when they really start to think about it :D
Hope your next tattoo turns out as good as the other!! ;)

Nicole, please let me stay silent here, because the last thing I want is to argue with you … By themselves, all your tattoos are beautiful, but I just don’t like this type of body art or this way of self-expression.

Sorry if I ruined your mood, but I prefer to be honest with you.

@Timmy: Yes, you are right, there a lot of people who don’t care about the meaning - and I guess these are often the ones who aren’t happy with their tattoos after a while.

@Anton: Don’t worry. I know so many people, who doesn’t like tattoos, that this has no impact on my mood ;-) It’s always better to be honest :-)

Thank you for understanding, Nicole!

May I just add that you are the most polite and kind person I’ve ever met online! You really are.

Polite and kind ? - You are just destroying my bad reputation ;-) Just kidding ...

OK, I think that I am kind most of the time, but there is also a devil inside of me.

No, no, no - you’re an angel to me! :D

Do not pretend! You love cats - that tells me enough. I also love cats and I’ve had more than 50 cats (believe me or not). Now I have an 8 month old girl, called Bambi.

And if I look at your tattoos as paintings, I really like these two cats a lot. :)

OK, I capitulate ;-)

50 cats - this is really a lot, but I believe it. We have 8 cats right now.
Maybe you would like to visit our HP: http://www.ragdolls-of-dryads-wood.de.
It is only in German but contains a lot of pics of our darlings.

BTW, I would like to see a picture of Bambi as well :-)

Mamma Mia! :) What gorgeous cats you have!!! I couldn’t see them all, but the ones I saw were just adorable!!! Thank you very much for the link! – I’ll keep the site in my bookmarks. :)

And okay - I’ll shoot Bambi tomorrow, but she’s an ordinary cat - you won’t like her …

EACH (!!!!!!!) cat is beautiful. We also have three “ordinary“ cats, which we picked up from the animal shelter several years ago.
I will surely like Bambi :-)

Actually, yes - you’re right - each cat has its charm.

I wanted to make the pictures now, but she is very sleepy, and the batteries of my camera are still charging …

So here she is anyway … These are taken 3 months ago, but I’ll “update” her tomorrow. :)э

She’s very cute. I love especially the white tip at the end of the tail. Some of our babies also have it :-)
