My next tattoo?

I've been thinking about getting a tattoo on my upper left arm for a while. I think eventually I want a sleeve, but I don't know what all I want to include. I couldn't decide on a large design, so I decided I wanted to start small and add on gradually (or maybe not?). I've recently thought about starting with a small tattoo on my upper arm, that starts on my upper shoulder blade and curves around onto my arm. I wanted something that wouldn't look lonely by itself on my arm,and couldn't think of anything for a while. Then it hit me-cherry blossoms! The branches are very poetic and flow very well so it seems perfect. Plus there is a lot of symbolism in the cherry blossom for the Japanese people, so it is a fitting tribute to family and ancestry. I love the colors of this tattoo:


I just love the look of cherry blossoms period. They are so beautiful against a blue sky

So what do you think of my idea? I'm going to be in a wedding in less than a month, so I'm hoping to get it done before then :)

  7. Get it!!!!!! Cherry blossoms are awful pretty! When I was growing up, my dad used to walk me and my sister around our park where the lotus flowers grew... and my first tattoo has lotus flowers to keep that memory.

    But I wanted to tell you- I felt the same exact way about Milk Toof! It was like: "Um, these are not cute. They're going to supersize and come eat me." But their storylines were so cute, I couldn't help but like them :) hah.

  8. I think cherry blossom tattoos can be really lovely and are also timeless :) (I work in a tattoo studio by the way and it's lovely to see somebody putting thought into their tattoo.. you would honestly have no idea how many people come in and just ask us what the cheapest thing we have is.. I swear I'm not kidding! Though I wish I was!)
