OK Guys, so i think this may have been done before, but i had a question. Has anyone gotten a tattoo after surgery? Either to memorialize the process, or simply because they feel comfortable with their new size and want to show off a little.

I myself have over 10 different tattoos and I am currently in the process (2 sessions done) of doing a half sleeve because im pretty damn happy with my arms. If anyone wants to share, or even show pics of there tats (be respectful please, this is a public forum), lets see what you got. You show me yours and ill show you mine (HA!)

@nursemichael I have too many tats to count...some preop and others postop. I got my "rock bottom of being unhealthy" date when I was sick and in the hospital with super high BP and other issues above my elbow. That's when my WL journey got real. Wanted the constant reminder to never go back!

Here are some pics of a few. Really into traditional Japanese but out seems to all be on my right side lol.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
