Hi! I'm Danny and I'm 34 years old. I have 4 tattoos (1 on my foot, 1 on my upper back and 2 on my arm that will become a half sleeve and then a full sleeve) and 1 nose ring.

I'm married with 4 fur-babies and I've lost 44 lbs with SparkPeople (and only 26 lbs to go). I love tattoos and I'm planning on getting a lot more. If you want to see them you are most welcome to my SparkPage.

My new tattoo and the rest of the sleeve are yoga-inspired as a promise to myself to stay healthy and keep on this amazing journey, no matter what life throws at me.

I would love to connect!

DaNnY!

Short Essay Questions ...

Why did you join Sparkpeople?
To track my weight loss, exercise and water intake, to get motivation from others, for the access to tools to aid in all of the above, and hopefully meet like minded people close to home


How do you plan to accomplish your goals?
Still figuring that one out! But some of what I have come up with are: joining SparkPeople, I have eliminated soda (quite awhile ago now), I quit smoking cigarettes March 2013, trying to eliminate sugar, I beat cancer emoticon , and now I'm working on diet and exercise.


What is the best way your fellow team members can give support?
Share your own experiences and participate! I know personally, the things that are going to get me out and about doing more is a) someone to go with and b) positive energy, whether that be posts on here or in person, it is an absolute must! OH - and don't judge! Not everyone is perfect :)


What makes you unique?
Oh my gosh. I guess it's overcoming adversity and coming out the other side with my positive attitude and sense of humor intact! It hasn't always been this way though. I have had struggles of some sort or another my whole life (the kind that people say, OMG! You should write a book!...um, no thank you! lol), and I was not the happiest person to be around for a very long time. It was something I strived for all my life. I got myself into counselling when I was 16 for that very reason. But it wasn't until I was in my 20's when I had the pleasure of meeting lady who seemed to be always happy, even when not so happy things were happening around her. She was a 'look at the bright side" and "see the silver lining" kind of person. And from there on out, I worked super hard to become that kind of person myself. It took a really long time, years in fact, but one day, I realized that I was way closer to being that person than I was at being "the old me". And I liked it! And I've continued to make a conscious effort to do so since then. That is the main thing I attribute to my ability to beat cancer with a smile (and a one finger salute emoticon ). That, and my amazing, supportive, awesome husband!

I have been hovering around here so I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Sheila and I currently live in Kingman, AZ since Thanksgiving. I don't know anyone and need to make some friends and find the motivation. As for tattoos, I love them and currently have 8 of them.

Hey, my name's Shay. Currently I have two tattoos, a wolf paw print on my wrist I got with my mama on my 18th birthday. Then my lower back piece that has two hand sized ravens, a white and a black one. Both represent my philosphies, but I won't get into that. I'm currently interested in losing weight, comic books, video games, and am seriously obsessing over white ink tattoos. So if you have a white ink tattoo, you should shoot me a message cause I'd love to see more designs people have and learn more about them! Glad to join the group.

Hi, my name is Heidi. I'm 31 and have two children. A son, Preston that is 12 and a daughter, Emma that is 5. My goal is to loose 30 pounds before August. I'm getting married to my best friend on August 5th on the beach in Georgia.

I love tattoos/ piercings. Always have and always will. I have 4 tattoos and have a whole wish list of more. Need to loose some weight around the middle before I can get some of the ones I want though.

Imagine that day, where you can finally say, "I did it!" When you can say, "I never gave up, I never quit!" Imagine that day when you win that gold medal, or reach your goal weight. Where these moments of pain turn into memories for that goal you wanted to obtain. It might take long to reach that moment, but as soon as you get there you'll thank yourself for THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

Hi there!

I'm glad I found out where the cool kids are hanging out on SP.

I'm 29, JUST hit my weight loss goal of sixty pounds. Last year I left my career as a hairdresser/MUA in Los Angeles to move to rural western Washington (go recession!)

I have a couple of tattoos, the first one I got with my mum to celebrate her 40th birthday, I was 17 at the time so she she had to sign for mine. I graduated high school at 16, and she promised me if I waited until I was 17 she'd pay for it. She's a very cool lady.

I'm planning to get a barn owl across the top of my shoulders, with the wings coming down the back of my arms. I adore owls, and have always been afraid to get a large piece because whatever DB guy I was dating at the time made faces at me about it.

So this next tattoo is going to be the first body mod I've done just for me, because I love it, I think it's beautiful, and dammit it's time. I'm going to be 30 this year, and this tattoo is a symbolic way of reclaiming my body.

Namaste!

Hit my goal of losing 60 pounds on 3/20/2012

Living proof that you can achieve your goal! :)

Hi everyone! My name is Jess and I'm 28 years old. I'm a single mother, student and work part time. I currently have one tattoo and am wanting to get my second. I already have it all planned out, but I'm having trouble getting together with my tattoo guy. He just opened up a second shop, so he's not as readily available as he was last time. I have a picture of my first tattoo on my page, so feel free to check it out. That one I found a design on the internet and took it to him, he did the coloring based on what I told him I wanted, but he was a little more restricted than he probably wanted to be. Either way he did a wonderful job and the tatoo is on my right shoulder blade. This time around, I'm taking my idea to him and asking him to draw my design up for me. I'm going to have him put the new one on my left outer calf.

I'm super excited to have found this group while browsing around here on SP. I love tats, but many people in my family don't understand my passion. It's so exciting reading about everyone's tattoos!

As for my weight loss journey, I started that seriously at the beginning of the year. It wasn't a resolution, I just didn't want to try to start losing weight during the holidays. I've lost 20.6 pounds since January 2, 2012 and I'm excited about my progress so far. I'm having pictures taken every 10 pounds so I can see the changes in my body because even though I can feel the difference, I can't really see it yet. Has anyone noticed how much colder it is when you lose weight?! lol I'm freezing! Anyway, I still have about 127 pounds left to lose to get to my goal weight, but I'm just taking it one week at a time at this point. And when I struggle, I take it one day at a time. I have hypothyroidism, so just the fact that I'm losing weight when I didn't think it was possible is enough to keep me going.

~{@ Jess

Hello everyone! My name is Holly, and I'm 23 years old. Body modification has been my passion ever since I first discovered it. I currently have five tattoos (I'm planning on getting a lot more though!), thirteen piercings, and one microdermal. I've been stretching my lobes since I was fourteen, and they're currently at 5/8." This is my life, and I'd love to make a career out of it. I just have to straighten out a few things before attempting to pursue an apprenticeship.
As for SparkPeople, I'm here because I want to take control of my weight. I've had weight issues my entire life. I was 195lbs at my biggest weight in February 2010. Last summer, I went down to 140lbs, but I'm back to 160lbs due to a lack of exercise and getting used to living in Miami. I want to lose the extra weight, plus more, and maintain it. I want to be healthy, even if it doesn't mean getting as small as I would like to be.

Hi! I'm Jenni, but my name on here is CleavHer because I play Roller Derby and my name is Crimson & CleavHer. In 2011 I gained 30lbs because of health problems that I'm just now getting under control. So I have 50lbs total that I'd like to drop.

It's difficult to be overweight and an athlete because the extra weight influences so many factors. I'm trying to get my weight under control and have an amazine 2012 season.

I have 5 tats, and will be starting on my half sleeve on Tuesday. :D

Hi Team!
My name is Ashton and I'm 25 years old. I have been overweight for most of my life, and have battled with insecurity and poor self image for a long time. About 6 years ago, I decided to take matters into my own hands and I started eating healthy and exercising, and I lost 90 lbs...Fast forward to 5 years later, and after two pregnancies/10+ lb babies and the illness/death of my dad from lung cancer Ive gained almost 70 lbs back. So here I find myself almost back where I started. I have been going strong since January of 2012 and have lost around 14 lbs so far......

I am a professional tattoo artist and I work in a shop in Juneau, AK. I love tattoos, they are my life and my profession....and they just plain kick ass!
Glad to be a part of the group!
Ashton :)

Hi everyone! :) My name is Jo, I have 13 tattoos (getting ready for the 14th), and had a baby last year so am now losing the weight all over again. I unfortunately gained 60 pounds while pregnant, but I'm already down 51 pounds so I am well on my way. I'd actually like to lose another 29 pounds but only because I have a ton of extra skin and I am hoping that that will help shrink it a little and then I'll gain a little back.

emoticon Hi All! My name is Kimberly. I am 35 soon to be 36 and struggling to lose 100+ pounds. Early last year I found out I am allergic to gluten so I had to change the way I eat. I am in love with fruits and veggies now. I found a new appreciation lol. I workout daily for the most part. If I take a day off I slack. So I try to get at least 20 minutes a day in. Been doing the 30 day shred and I'll toss in Leslie Sansone and Zumba. 2012 is my year to get healthy. I'm not looking to get thin. I just don't want to be winded when I climb stairs or sore and tired after a long walk. I want to run a half marathon and then a marathon some day. Thinking about trying to do a 5k in June. We will see! I have 6 tattoo's with more on the way if I reach my goals! Feel free to add me. I have been a Spark member for quite sometime now and I am always looking to expand my Spark Family. emoticon emoticon

Hi All! I got my first tat as a reward when I hit my first goal. It is on the entire top of my left foot, and is a dancing Ganesha. He is the hindu god who is often referred to as "the remover of obstacles." Who among us doesn't have a lot of those? I haven't lost any more weight, so I am planning my next tat as a reward. I really want it, so I better go work on my goals! LOL!

Hello, my name is Tammy. I am 39 with 3 kids and I have 9 tattoos. The only one that I would like to cover up with something else is the one of my baby's faters name... what a mistake that one was... but I love the other ones. They are mostly smaller pieces.. I have a couple butterflies, a couple dragons, a ladybug, humming birds, a crain, and a ring of flowers.. I would love to have a big back piece done.. I know what I want.. Its just lack of funds that keeps me from getting it done.

Howdy. I'm Sarah from Idaho and I am a hairdresser and makeup artist. I'm not really sure how many tattoos I have since they seem to run together. I am working on a giant chest piece that I have had 3 sessions of about 3 hours each on. It's a cat skull painted like a sugar skull with wings and a giant lotus flower at the top. I have a lot of pin up girls by Vince Ray on my arms and my daughters names on each wrist. I have a huge peony flower on my leg with waves around it. My other leg has a pink elephant on my ankle that I got from a Camille Rose Garcia design. I also have a tattoo behind my left ear that I always forget about because I never see it. It's a cat head with crossbones done in pink and outlined in white so it looks like a brand. I will try and post pics of all my tattoos soon.

Hi all! My name is Kara, I'm 32, from Janesville, WI and I currently have only 3 tats. My most recent is for my bf, who has CF. It's a purple (the symbolic color for CF) rose with the words "65 roses" (the childhood nickname for cystic fibrosis) written in the leaves (on my left ankle). By far...that one is my favorite. Then I have a yin-yang with Japanese cherry blossoms surrounding it with the words "Live, Laugh, Love" scribed around outside (on my right shoulder). The last one is for my knowledge only :) Looking to get another one eventually...just need to find out what/where!! lol I think I will work on getting my bf his first....he wants a wizard with the name Mr. Oz written around it (ironically his last name is Mroz) lol

Hey all! I'm Stacey and I'm a 26 year old in Denver, CO. Currently I have 6 tattoos. I have a half sleeve of a line art phoenix on my left arm, half sleeve of tropical flowers on right arm, violin on my right shoulder blade, sparrow on my left shoulder blade, a hand of cards (symbolizing my wedding in Vegas) and the outside of my right ankle, and a tiny little flower on the inside of my left ankle. I got my husband into tattoos when we first met back in '05. It is cool that since I've started to lose weight my half sleeves take up more room on my arms! I can't wait to get more I already have two planned. My husband's uncle just got his license and is still doing free tattoos for family so we are both going to take advantage of that soon.

Hi y'all I'm super excited that I found this group. I love tats they are so addictive!! I currently have 5. I have Dopey on my left ankle - thanks to my gramas suggestion :-) chinese symbol meaning destiny on back of my right shoulder - I got this one because everyone has thier own destiny, I have a scroll on my right ankle with my initials TLC on it - my initials are now TLW but I'll always be a Coil lol, I have the chinese symbol for hairdresser on the back of my left shoulder - I did hair for 10yrs & once a hairdresser always a hairdresser, and I have the chinese symbol for lost love on my lower back - got that before "tramp stamps" were all the rage lol.

A week from today I'm getting a Celtic Clover with the colors of the Ireland flag on my right foot and I can't wait I'm crazy excited about it - my mom is getting it for me for my b-day Woo Hoo!!!!

Hi, My name is Genevieve. I am 35 years old. I have 5 tattoos. I got my first tattoo when I was 18 and my most recent in December. I have two boys, ages 19 and 11. I just graduated from nursing school and I am getting ready to take my state boards in 10 days. I don't want to be a fat nurse. I want to be a good example for my patients and my kids. I have struggled with my weight for about the last 10 years. When my second son was a year old I was in a car accident and three years later I was in another car accident. The second accident required physical therapy, chiropractics, massage therapy, and acupuncture just so that I could learn to walk right again. It seemed that each time I was getting close to recovering and losing weight something would happen to set me back. And here I go again...

Hi chicas! My name is Kelly, I'm old enough to know better, married, and we have one little dude who is 2. I've got 3 tats - first was a celtic knot tramp stamp when I was 19 (still love it), second was a gothic black sun on my left foot when I was 20 (still love this one too), and my most recent is a black shadowy cross with a bunch of scroll work superimposed. In the middle are 3 green flowers - one for husband, myself, and our son. This is my only tattoo with any bit of color and it's on the inside of my right wrist.

I of course have my next like, 3 lined up. Just need the fundage. I want to get a hula girl in honor of my paternal grandfather. He had one on his left forearm. Not sure I could pull that look off with my job, so I'm still deciding on a place for that. I'd like to get a little symbol that I created many years ago for myself on the inside of my heal. I'd LOVE to get a huge filigree or scroll work cross on my entire back (sort of like the priest in Romeo & Juliet - the one with Leo DiCaprio). I'd also like to get a Japanese inspired cherry blossoms tattoo, but the picture for that is still floating around in my head. And I haven't decided on the real estate for it yet either.

Hi, I'm Lisa from Clearwater, Florida. I have a few tattoos. I got the 1st when I was about 22 (now 37) of a frog, sitting on a mushroom, smoking a cigarette (I was a smoker, then) - it's on my shoulder & has faded but someday I'll get it re-touched. My 2nd came a few years later. It's a black & green design on my lower back. This was before the "tramp stamp" became all-the-rage & it's a little higher on my back that that! My last real tattoo came about 6 years ago, just before I moved to florida. I had a going-away night out with a couple of old friends & we all got tattoos. This is of a martini glas (we love our martinis!) & says "get swanky" & it's on my hip. I said real tattoo before, because I do also have my eyeliner tattood on, which I love, love, LOVE & have had it for about 8 or 9 years (it's been touched-up once). Once I hit my goal I'd like to get a nice, big tree starting at the one on my lower back - this would be incorporated into the roots - & spreading up my back & across my shoulder, where I'd make the frog/mushroom be sitting on one of the branches, then down the top of my arm. I'd also like a big, full moon behind it & I'd incorporate various symbolic things hiding in the branches of the tree. This will be wicked EX - PEN - SIVE, but it's for ME & I deserve it!

Hi, I'm Alyssa.
I've been using sparkpeople for almost 60 days now. I've discovered that I like working out.
I have 3 tattoos. I have a heart on my ankle that I made myself when I was 16, "Life won't wait" tatted under my right collar bone from after I turned 18, and a rose by my hip in rememberance of my grandma Rosie that I got after I turned 19.

Hi everyone! This is my 2nd time around joining Spark. I'm hoping this time is different, I'm ready to lose weight for me:) I have 5 tattoos...planning more, once I get a couple fixed. On my left leg, I have my most meaningful tat...it is a moon (symbolizing my mother) with 4 stars (to symbolize my siblings and myself), and then 4 little stars (symbolizing my neices and nephews)..on my right leg, I have a cartoon girlie devil, giving the middle finger...kind of my way to say f** u, to all the bad things I let go of in my life. My lower back I have a tribal butterfly with the chinese symbols, for love, strength, happiness, and devotion. Left shoulder I have a kissing sun and moon, and the right shoulder..is my ex husbands initials...which as soon as I have the money, I am getting covered..I just have no idea what I can put there to cover the whole thing:(

I just joined SparkPeople over the weekend, but I'm really enjoying it so far, and I was pleased to find this team. I have a traditional Samoan tattoo on my legs - no modern tools on this one.

Hi all! My name is Mandie, I've been a Spark member since 2007. My weight goes up and down through the years. I'm currently at the heaviest I ever get but I know that usually when I get to this weight I lose it and get back down to my goal weight which is between 135-140. I plan to get a new tattoo when I get to my goal weight which is an owl because my grandmother who I've very close to loves owls and a cancer ribbon because my grandfather died from cancer and I am a cancer survivor. I currently have 4 tattoos. My first I ever got was a frog on the left side of my lower back (I love frogs). The second tattoo I got was the name of a song on my right shoulder. Third tattoo is a "tribal" eye. And my fourth I added to the tattoo on my shoulder with music notes.

Jan: 145 lbs
Feb 1: 140 lbs
March 1: 135 lbs

Hi everyone! I've been on SP for a few weeks now and happened to find this group today. I am 25 years old, no kids -- just me, my boyfriend and our dog. I have 2 tattoos. One is cherry blossoms that go down my inner forearm... not really the traditional looking kind. The other is a decent sized koi fish with some waves on my right thigh. Once I lose my weight and get my arms toned up I'm planning on doing a "Day of the Dead" themed half sleeve. Can't wait!

Hi everyone! I'm Kim, an almost-39 year old mom and wife of a large blended family living in the country just outside of Victoria, TX, and a new grandmother!!! I have a single tattoo that I got when I was 18. I've got 5 that I already know exactly what I want, and many more that I'm sure I'll want after that. :) After an extended bout of unemployment, I'm choosing to make tattoos my reward for losing weight. I'm shooting for one every twenty-five pounds (and I have about 70 lbs to lose), but once I get to my goal, I'm sure to add to the list!!! I look forward to getting to know other SP! :D

HELLO!!! I can't believe it has taken me this long to find such an awesome group! My name is Sabrina. I live in southern California (north orange county). I have been in the process of loosing weight for 2 years with a small snag in the middle. I have many things I want to do while reaching my goal weight, and one of them is to get a chest piece.

Thank you for the warm welcome and encouragement! emoticon

Hello sparklers, my name is irina, im from Austin texas and im addicted to tattoos. im glad i found my spot. im on sp because i will be losing 65 lbs soon and i need help, suggestions, motivation, friends (who couldn't use more!), and a tracking system to hold me accountable.

yesterday i finished my half sleeve on my left arm, its a tribute to my puerto-rican heritage (a royal poinciana, avocado flowers, a coqui frog, a banana spider and an iris for my grandma. i have a butterfly on each shoulder, a huge capricorn in the middle of my back, a tribute to kurt vonnegut on my lower back (the tombstone from slaughterhouse 5 "everything was beautiful and nothing hurt, so it goes"), a tribute to my parents on each ankle- their astrological sign, a sugar skull on my right calf for my grandpa, and an italian flag on my right arm along with a black widow and fly.

i think thats all... i want more, i have three more ideas floating in this noggin of mine. i just need money!

good luck to all of you! keep up the excellent work ;)

-iree.

Hello everyone - My name is Crystal and I am 31 yrs old. I was down 79 pounds but then I gained 21 back. My goal is about 50 pounds more to lose.

I have a total of 9 tattoos.
1~ rose of my right chest 2~Tigers face inside of a butterfly shape on my left ankle 3~A black sun with a star and moon in the center on the back of my neck 4~ a heart with swirls and stray lines of red/pink on my right hand 5~ Red, White & Blue heart on my right forearm (quarter size) 6~Bracelet around left wrist with butterflies and hearts with a memorial written on the inner wrist 7~a large hummingbird on my right arm with it's tail wrapping around the wrist and ending closer to the birds body 8~ Fairy with multi colored wings on my back left shoulder and my 9th~ 9 Foxglove flowers that my hummingbird is feeding from along with a butterfly.

When I get down 22 pounds I am going to fill in a space on my forearm between the hummingbirds wings and the foxglove with a few violet flowers for my Niece/God-daughter Peyton (the violet is her birth flower)

It would be great to be Sparkbuddies if you are interested :o)

Hi my name is Amber !
So a little about me I am here for a change! I have been struggling with my weight for as long as I can remember I have been on diets after diets and it all keeps coming back plus more. I am determined to lose weight, look good and also be healthy. Also I have been slowly changing the way I eat and now I just need to stop being lazy and exercise.
I am tired of being big. Every time I want to do something I feel like my weight is holding me back. I want the first 50lbs off and gone for good. That's my first goal and see how I am from there and if I need to lose more weight I am 5'9 and weight 255 In 2009 I had lost 45 lbs and it is all back. When I was that weight I felt so much better not just about myself physically and mentally. Since then I met my boyfriend and have put every bit of it back on.
~ The obstacles that I think I will have is just being motivated to exercise and eat less.
~ My physical ability atm is very low I sit at a desk all day long and stare at a computer. When I get home I used to come home cook dinner watch tv and then go to bed.
~ My reward for myself when I lose 50 lbs would be a new wardrobe! I will be out of plus size and be able to shop at regular department stores!!
~ Some of my hobbies are playing darts, board games, love being outdoors and seeing new places. I love playing softball but I haven't played in about 2 yrs and would like to start again.

This time I WILL lose it and keep it off! I am looking for friends to help keep me motivated through this process.

~ Beginning weight 255Lbs

Hey y'all! I'm Kim and I lost about 30 lbs a couple of years ago but managed to find most of it! So I'm back on track now and looking forward to feeling better. I'm tired of creaking and popping every time I move. I have 5 tattoos. I turned 40 last year and as a present my husband designed a cover up piece for me. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Hey, all. My name's Danielle. I have 4 tattoos-- 3 of which got obliterated during my pregnancy because I insisted on a bag of Oreos a day and gained 70lbs... awesome...- with one more coming up VERY soon. The next one will be of my daughter's name and was my big reward for reaching a size 8. One more dress size to go and I'm there!

Hello everybody!! I'm Shantel, 29 in Saskatchewan, Canada. I've got six tats currently, 1 is a large piece that is waiting for a little more color that's going in in May. I'm pretty new here, but I like it so far. Hoping to meet some new friends and get some encouragement when I need it along the way, as well as sending some out of my own.

Hello all!!

I'm Kisha (26) with 5 tats....working on the 6th once the hubby and I can get a chance to check out some out of town artists. We don't really like the local artists that much but that's where most of my 5 came from so I guess I'm partial to the idea :)

Going for an upper thigh/hip piece this time. All of mine are on the upper half of my body so I want to do something different this time. Hopefully we can go before summer so I can show it off! emoticon

Be wise in the use of time. The question in life is not how much time do we have. The question is what shall we do with it.

Im Annie. Im 30 and have 5 tats right now. I have about 20 lbs to lose from my pregnancy (my daughter is 20 months). I have thyroid cancer, so no thyroid...makes losing the weight a bit tougher. I already have 2 spots picked out for my next tats, just have to decide on them. I got my last one in Dec. 10.

I am new here, to this group at least. I have been on the site for a few months now. I have been "collecting" tattoos since I was 16. I am up to 10. Planning on getting some more as I lose weight. Just wanted to drop in and say hi.

Hi all - I'm Debbie from NY and have 2 children in the age range of many of you emoticon

I now have 5 tats - didn't get my first one until I was almost 40. My favorite are the words "No Day But Today" surrounding a symbol for transformation.

I joined SP 3 weeks ago and delighted to see other inked women here with the same goals of losing weight and getting healthier

Hi everyone, I'm Sammi. I'm 20 years old, and living in NS, Canada. I'm a Public Relations student.

I have three tattoos: a memorial tattoo of a poppy and the phrase, "Dulce et Decorum est" on the side of my left hip/thigh, the bird from the cover of Chuck Palahniuk's "Lullaby" in blue on my right foot, and a white ink tattoo of a quill and ink well on my left wrist.

I'm trying to lose 5 dress sizes altogether, the first four by by 21st birthday! Looking forward to meeting all of you and seeing all the beautiful art in this team!

Hi everyone! My name is Marisa, I'm 30, and I currently live in Groton, CT. I say currently because my husband is active duty Navy so that can always change. I have 8 tattoos, and am planning my next one as a reward for one of my weight loss goals. I joined to lose weight, but also to learn how to live a healthier lifestyle and be in control of my body. I had a baby eight months ago and am nearing the end of my "baby weight" excuse! I'm ready to get back to where I feel comfortable in my own skin.
Feel free to add me if you want, I enjoy getting to know new people from all walks of life, and I could use all the support I can get! I love to look at other people's tattoos, it's my own art appreciation. Good luck to everyone and it's great to be here. :)

Hello, I'm Missy. I like in Missouri and have a goal of 90 pounds to lose by the end of 2011. I've tried losing weight before, only to have an injury and end up gaining it all back. This time I've decided this isn't a diet, it's a journey, for the long haul. As for tattoos I have an Alice in Wonderland half sleeve, but it's not finished yet, and needs to be touched up badly. I also have a small butterfly on my shoulder. I plan on getting many more, and a huge piece on my belly side once I get to my goal weight.

I look forward to our journey together :-)

Hey ladies! I'm Amanda, mother of 3 from Southern California (heart is in Portland, OR). I just had my 3rd in November and finally decided it's time to get the rest of this baby weight off plus a little extra! I have 2 tatts one of my right foot and a half sleeve on my right arm. I plan on getting many more but won't allow myself to until after I lose the weight. Look forward to chatting with you all :)

My name is Lara, I'm an school nurse RN in rural New Mexico, trying to bridge the gap between Suzy Sunshine Homemaker (with canning jam and knitting) and being sleeved and otherwise tattooed. :) It's a rarity out here in the country, but I'm proud of who I am. My goal is 100 pounds in 2011, from 225 to 125, and today I weighed in at 217. 8 down, 92 to go. It's fun to see others with tattoos as rewards for their own self journey and perseverance. I personally have 2 reward tattoos planned; at 60 and 90 lbs lost. My 100 lb goal reward will be a "suicide girls" inspired photo shoot. Glad to meet other beautiful illustrated women, and motivate each other toward our goals.

Hi everyone! I joined GINGERGLOOMY here because I was entranced by your current team icon (the Irish-style sugar skull - beautiful!). I have three tattoos all of my own design: the o Fesa (Salmon of Knowledge) between my shoulder blades, a Book of Kells-based word "Cglas" (lit. "Grey-wolf", means "Foreigner" in Old Irish law) on my abdomen, and the face of Loki, a Norse god, from the 10th c. Snaptun bellows-stone, surrounded by runes reading "Loki bar flra tma" (Loki bore fortune's deceit) from the Old Norwegian rune poem, on my hip. I should probably mention that I am a medieval studies graduate student as well :) My next tattoo is a triple-leg and portal design on my other hip for Manannan, the god of the Isle of Man. And the tattoo after that is if I can get to below 160 lbs. and stay below there for a year: then I will get a large La Tne-style roundel on my right deltoid, possibly also including the Old Irish epithet "Samildnach" (many-skilled) with the last three letters in a different color because they are my initials. I have other plans but those are my current and near-future ones.

Hey!! I'm Nixie... I am brand new here. I have been tattooed 6 times, but have 4 tattoos (2 are cover up of past mistakes... lol). I'm a 32 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a college degree but cant find work in that field because I am "too smart". What.ever. Stupid economy. LOL

When I reach my goal, I'm getting a phoenix either across my shoulder and down my right arm... or on my thigh and down my leg. :) I haven't decided yet... a pic of it is on my Spark Page. :)

I love getting a tattoo as a "gift" to myself. I recently got a cover up for a "mistake" when I was a teen... watching it get covered... then letting it heal... was a process. Helped me emotionally heal at the same time :)

Anyway, just wanted to poke my head in and say HI!

Hello folks... I'm a female tattoo artist from Chicago, I figured this would be a good group to join! :p I've been on sparkpeople a while but I wasn't making much progress so I figured I'd try reaching out a bit to the community... there seem to be a lot of cool people on here, and apparently a lot of tattooed ones also! So, hello everybody!

I've had a great fascination and fondness for tattoos for as long as I can remember and am greatly looking forward to the ink to come.

Hi Everyone!
My name is Ashley and I'm 24 years old :) I have loved tattoos since I was a kid. I have always been fascinated by body art.

I have 5 tattoos (and that number will be growing soon!) If you're interested to see what I have inked, just view my pictures on my spark page ;)

I hope to talk with you all soon!

I have a tat that starts on my left shoulder and ends at my right knee. I'll put a picture up on my page soon.

I have 80 pounds to lose so I am going to be here for a while and I am looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hiiiii. My name is Mandy. I'm 25 years old and I'm from Michigan. I have five tattoos, and want lots more.

I've been on SP for a while now, but I've never really used the community aspect. I'm hoping to make some friends and find some motivation. I was going really strong for a while and I lost 53 pounds in 2010 but I seem to have lost my fire a little bit.

Um :x I don't know what else to say right now. It's nice to meet all of you emoticon

Hello! Technically I'm not new to this team but I have been away from Spark for about a year. I have gained a lot of my weight back and I need to get involved again and get this weight back off plus some more. I got my first tattoo 2 years ago and my second one about a year ago. I want another, but I have set a goal of 165 pounds before I can get a new one.
