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.

I'd like to get SOMETHING. I just don't know what. I have 3 tattoos currently (formerly had 5, but had 2 removed) with 5 more planned after I finish my plastic surgeries, but those are unrelated to the weight loss surgery.

ALWAYS had wanted to have an angel on the inside of my right wrist to memorialize my son Kevin who died at 31, just hisname, angel , birth-date & death-date, promised myself when my Weight Loss was achieved and felt I could treat myself to the cost. Now I developed an ganglion cyst right where I wanted IT, had surgery but I'm thinking it is reoccurring, my poor angel would have looked. about 5 months "preggo", not GOOD if you're a Boy Angel, or are Angels non- gender specific? So it's still on my SomeDay List, it was going to be Left because my Son was left- handed .
So I'm still chickened- out but much to Tomkitten's chagrin, I want a "Tat" before I die, he says I'm pretty just the way I am, but dang-it I WANT ENHANCED!

@frustr8 love the idea of your memorial. Maybe you can fund a spot that'll work!! Tomkitten will love it!

I know this is an old thread, but had to give props to @336Mike for his awesome assembly of tattoos.

I have a small little daisy on my left hip that I got when I was 17. It has no leaves because I couldn't afford the extra colour.... 😂

Now that I can probably afford a rainbow of colours (lol), I am mulling the idea of getting a larger one on my back of something undetermined OR a strategically placed one on my upper arm(s) to cover possible arm lift scars...
