I only have one tattoo...a tiny wolf on the back of my thigh howling up at "the full moon" :)

I'm not an ink person, but I let my daughter's bestie do it, she's an intern tattoo artist and needed work for her portfolio:) She did a beautiful job.

I have a few tattoos, and am planning a new one for after surgery (in June). I have one of those fat pads on my upper back, just under the neck... that will likely be the first area of fat to go adios, so I’m planning a large tattoo there to Celebrate.

I already have multiple tattoos but I do not plan on getting a tattoo to signify my weight loss. Only for fear if I gained it back lol.

Yes! I would like a foot tattoo of a molting snake to commemorate my adventure. I have an inspiration photo from google that is somewhat loosely similar to what I would like the artist to design - particularly the intertwining and the white, lacy molted skin. But I'd like a much more colorful snake and obviously the size and shape of the two snakes would have to be fit to the top of my foot. I really prefer to let the artist take over as much as possible, I feel my pieces are truly unique and a sort of bond of trust between me and the artist. I know most people are way too a-n-a-l (sorry, trying to avoid filters haha) and want to control what it looks like which I totally understand, cause it's going to be on your body forever, after all! But anyway, yes, I definitely want a tattoo in honor of this huge life change.

I am 53 years old, no tattoos yet but I am considering getting one as part of this journey. I am thinking of the symbol for new beginnings. I’ll add it to my comment if I can figure out how to do it lol

I’m thinking a Phoenix tattoo.

I never got a tattoo because I always wanted to lose weight, and thought my skin would be saggy and it would ruin it. Also, placement is harder when you are overweight. So now, I def want to get one. I don't know if it will be to signify my WLS journey, but I will always know it wouldn't have been possible without it.

How cool would it be if that Phoenix tat became nationally recognized symbol of wls. We could ID each other in society!

I'm getting a tattoo of Arwen's necklace from Lord of the Rings. Always been a huge fan of the series and loved the story of her choosing her life path despite what others wanted her to do kind of like what I'm doing now. :)
