I spend one day away from LJ with my smiling baby and...  
Oh Ryan Ross. Just kill me on the spot, won't you? TATTOOS? First Brendon. Who's next? Spencer? JON?!?!? ♥

But this turn of events does bring to mind a little something I was talking to wordsaremyfaith about just yesterday. I have a mental list of tattoos I plan to get in the coming months, years, whatever. The one I want to get most of all is going to be baby Spencer-related and most likely located on this inside of my wrist (much like Ryan Ross). I just don't know what to get. I've been planning to get a tattoo in honour of him since before I even knew he was going to be a boy. Since before I knew I was pregnant honestly...I knew I'd get tattoos for my children. That's just the way I roll.

So I need your help, my friends. Give me some ideas. Tattoo brainstorming session shall commence: I like symbolic gestures, I love lyrics, but I just don't know what to get that will just be THE PERFECT tattoo. I appreciate your input and I value your ideas and opinions.

Also, recently baby Spence has been such a smiley little thing! He almost giggles when we change his diaper. If you ask me he just likes to be naked. :P
But seriously, he grins more and more every day. I'll try to capture photos of this, because nothing is sweeter than a smiling 2 month old!

Goodnight m'loves. Comment and gimme some tattoos ideas. As soon as we pick a good one I'll run out and get it done. I'm ITCHING to get one. And it can now be blamed on one Ryan Ross.

I like the idea of a tattoo for Spencer. Maybe his name, maybe something more symbolic - think about his birthdate, his sign, a song that you sing to him, a song that reminds you of him, a song you heard in the hospital, a book that reminds you of him, a quote that reminds you of him, etc.

See, I want tattoos for all of my children. I mean, if I have more, then they'll each have a permanent tribute on my body.

I've been thinking about this so much. All of your ideas are wonderful. I just need to narrow it down! Lyrics are the best, really. And I've seriously considered doing something with his birthdate. I'm such a words/lyrics girl though....hmmm. See, this is tough.

If you're a word/lyric girl then I think you should def try to find a poem, some lines from a story or lyrics that have significance. They don't even need to be explicitly ABOUT love or children or something, just a song that makes you think of Spencer when you hear it, or a song that evokes the same feelings in you when you hear it as when you see him. Just something that you can look at and immediately be reminded of Spencer, or feel your love for him....

I wouldn't try to consciously search for it though, because you'll get all blocked. Just live your life and be aware if you ever come across a poem or song that resonates with you.

btw, I LOOOOOOVE the idea of a tattoo for each child.

er- how about an elvish tattoo? *grins* I'm getting the elvish symbol for 'rage' on my inner-left wrist...

or maybe a picture of one of his eyes?...that seems a bit odd though, yeah? o_O

[p.s. I chose 'tree' because trees are very important to the elves...and since Spencer is so important to you....yeah. I'm a weird one. ^^;;;]

you know how they stamp the baby's feet? you could get that tattooed on your. spencer's foot print on your wrist. his initials. date of birth.

uhm. this might sound odd, but his initials creating a heart? it makes sense in my head. but i don't know if i can verbalize that.

I am no help in the thinking of tattoos department, but as a mom, I think it might be cool if whatever you create, you do something that can be added to with each consecutive child. Like maybe you create a chain link on your wrist with his date of birth or something. And the next child would be the next link, hooked together? Something that builds, like those "mother" necklaces/bracelets things. Maybe his initial sideways and then the date of his birth in a circle (sort of like a lollipop type configuration) and then the next child could be the same thing so the initials would be the "links" to the previous child? I don't know if this is making any sense, but I can *see* it. Hee.

I really love the foot print idea. My cousin has a little girl who was born at 26 weeks, so her foot prints are tiny little things, and she has them circling her ankle. The part I love about the whole idea is that when Charleigh (the baby) gets older, she'll see that her mama has a permanent part of her on her body. I *love* that.

You could always get Spencer's sized down a little, and then do the same for each child after that. I don't know how many you're planning on, but maybe you could get Spencer's on the inside of your wrist and work your way out?

seriously, i'm still a little shocked at ryan's tattoos, but i know i'm going to grow to love them. my little man is growing up, *sniff sniff*!

if i had any awesome tattoo ideas for you, i'd share, but i really don't. i only know the one i want to get - key word want. i'm a little leery of needles. but it's probably gonna be 'awake & unafraid' surrounded by three stars on each side. the lyrics just really, really mean something special to me, so... yeah.

awww baby smiles. nothing beats 'em! except for maybe when he gets old enough to hug you for no reason. that's always nice.
