This is a beautiful watercolor tattoo by Ondrash out of the Czech Republic.

I love this tattoo...I like the simplicity and detail of this watercolor tattoo by Amanda Wachob. I love the splash of light blue and the black splashes dotting up behind the ear. I would seriously consider getting a tattoo very similar to this but with a second bright color and only a few bits of black.
Okay, so funny story about this tattoo. I randomly came across this tattoo last night (via http://blogs.discovermagazine.com) and recognized it right away as a inking of a neuron. And, not just any type of neuron, a hippocampal neuron. Those of you who know me or have read any of my other blog posts, might be asking yourselves how I would know something like this, since I am pretty clueless when it comes to all things math and science. Well, my husband is a neuroscientist who works with these exact types of neurons. In fact, I noticed a tracing of a neuron pinned up in his lab one day and commented how that would make an awesome tattoo. So, I scrolled down to the comment section and the first comment was from Nelson Spruston who said: "Patrick, this is super cool. I think it's a neuron I reconstructed years ago and published in a 2005 J. Physiology paper (Golding et al.). It's a beautiful neuron and it looks great as a tattoo." Who is he? And why does it matter? He happens to be the professor who runs the lab where my husband works. small world! And that's my story. Yay.
I could not for the life of me find out who this tattoo belongs to or where it orginated. but I love it and it makes me want to add more simple lines to my tattoo.
While engaging in my endless online search of tattoos, I came across ALOT of feather and bird tattoos. This one stood out to me because of it's vibrant colors. I am not sure who the tattoo artist for this feather was but I found it on fyeahtattoos.com
I wish I was cool enough to rock a tattoo like this one. (sigh). This one is by the tattoo artist Guy Le
Do you notice a pattern? I really like tattoos with simple lines. I found this one on http://rodeo.net/tattoologist/.
Another cool idea that incorporates the simple lines but can convey a powerful message. This one also comes from http://rodeo.net/tattoologist/.
goodness. I will never be as cool as this chick. I don't even have enough confidence to wear shorts in the summer let alone get a huge dream catcher tattoo down the side of my thigh.
