I actually got my weight loss tattoo awhile ago. Written in script on my right wrist is "1 Corinthians 10:23". The meaning of this verse is "Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial". It is a constant reminder to me to make choices that will benefit my body, while at the same time, if I chose something that isn't so beneficial, not to beat myself up over it.

I've been giving my "celebration" tattoo a lot of thought, because it will be a pretty big piece. I'm planning on it covering a large portion of my upper back, so it's kind of a big deal!

Beauty comes in many forms. Find one YOU'RE comfortable and happy with!

I'M GRADUATING!!

I want a new tattoo to celebrate that HUGE milestone. Unfortunately, I have no job and therefore no money and can't justify the expense at the moment. However, the minute I can, I plan to take the tattoo I got after my first year and extend it over my shoulder and onto my left shoulder blade. Start and finish.....

I got one at the beginning of my journey to represent that life was happening now, not 10 pounds from now. I had always wanted a tattoo, but was going to wait until I got thin. I kept waking up fat. Then I wondered, what if thin never happens? So I decided to live in the day. I got a tattoo of Victorian flowers and a little Christian fish swimming in them on my right back shoulder. It's to remind me also to stop and smell the flowers and pat myself on the back.

I love tatoos and I always wanted the ones I got to be meaningful. I figured that after my weight loss/ becoming healthy journey would be the perfect reward and have a lot of meaning since I'm not just doing this to have a better body. I want to feel beautiful, confident, and strong. I want to be the best me and feel like I can accomplish anything. I want to feel as amazing as I am. One day my sister mentioned that a flower could be symbolic of me becoming this best me I can be. So I immeadiately thought of roses since they're my favorite, and I started looking into their meanings. After finding out the meanings of the colors in roses, I came up with the idea of a stem with one dark red rose bud in the middle, and a fully opened, vibrant red rose on the end. Dark red roses symbolize unconcious beauty; and regular red roses symbolize love, beauty, courage and respect, congratulations, "I Love You", "Job Well Done", sincere love, respect, courage and passion. These are all the things I want for myself. So this tatoo would be like me, going from not knowing how beautiful and amazing I am, to being amazing and loving myself (in a nonnarcissistic way of course). I was thinking of putting this on my back, shoulder area :)

I am debating a weight loss tattoo, or a finishing college tattoo. It will probably be both, but I'll wait until the end of my college program to get the tattoo, just because I want to get a tat on my wrist, and any tats on the arms have to be covered while in the program.

I've hit my weight loss goal, but funds are an issue right now.

I'm getting a barn owl across the top of my back, with the wings going down my arms. It'll be the first thing I've ever done without wondering what soandso is going to think about it.

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

Living proof that you can achieve your goal! :)

I have 30 pounds to go before I reassess my goals. I have several tattoos in mind as well as getting my nose repierced, so I have decided to reward myself for every ten pounds lost. I'm almost to my first ten since I started tracking my weight in January. I want to get a three blue water faeries that are part of one of my husband's paintings on my left foot...maybe with a lotus, a lily pad on my right foot as a continuation of the frog tat I already have, a raven or black crow as a cover-up on my right thigh (in honor of my husband), and an ouroboros with the quote "Only change is unchanging."... probably on my wrist or upper arm. Now, if I can only get my husband to finish some sketches!

WHEN I get a nice flat and toned tummy (i will Dammit..one day..lol) I would like to repierce the belly. As far as tattoo, I'm thinking on lower right belly and hip of maybe some flowers. Something pretty and girlie because for years I have had such a hate relationship with it. I am finally starting to get it down and when my excess is finally gone I want an excuse to show it! lol

wow, you ladies are giving me some great ideas for tattoos and to use it as motivation. I've always wanted 1) belly button pierced if I was ever able to pull it off...but now not so sure. We'll see when I get there 2) lotus flower on lower back, maybe with the "Om" symbol in the center. Also I love literary tattoos. Where there's like a typed word instead of a picture or symbol. I want to get "Strong." on my ribs in a typewriter kind of font at some point too. Also want to get my sons birth date in roman numerals below my innner elbow. Lots of ideas to use as motivation to work towards!! I was just trying to think of some non food rewards and glad I found this page (and read all the way back to the beginning LOL) Woohoo!

(Currently I have a butterfly on my shoulder from when I was 17 to symbolize new beginnings, a butterfly on my left foot for a baby I lost due to miscarriage, and a star and waves on my inner wrist for strength and calm)

I'm planning to lose another 10 to 15 lbs by my birthday in April. This birthday will be an important milestone for me. I turn 31 and it will mark 15 years that I've been cancer free. My tattoo is going to be a lime green ribbon (type of cancer I had Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma) on my left wrist ( I have a burn on that wrist from chemo treatments) with the words SURVIVOR under the ribbon.

August 1: 145 lbs
Sept 1: 140 lbs
October 1: 135 lbs

I am planning on getting a line from a My Chemical Romance song on the inside of my arm once I hit 200. I know 200 seems high still but I will have lost 58lbs and it will give me the ambition to lose the last 30lbs next year!

I'm sorry to hear about the turmoil in your relationship. I'm on the fence about leaving myself. I've been married for 21 years and I'm a positive person. I keep thinking I can change my husband's pessimistic ways. Well, this and a lot of other problems I have with him. My kids are 11 & 15 and I"m a stay at home mom. I don't know what I'd do for money.

I'm trying to concentrate on getting healthy and we are going to therapy and a financial class to get our budget in order. I can always be your soundboard during this change in your life.
The reason I came across your message was through tattooed women. When I reach my goal I plan on getting a tattoo of a sunflower my Mom painted years ago. I think I'd like it between my shoulder blades, but then I couldn't see it. I have a large flower on my left foot.
Good luck to you.

I just started Spark people and love the online friends I've made. I have 40 more pounds to loose. I've been overweight for 20 years.

I love that your daughter is drawing up your pic for you! Sucks that your ex is crossing boundaries with her since it makes it messy but fortunately she is 20 (ie young adult versus say 12 year old). emoticon

My daughter is drawing me the S.Carolina symbol - a palm tree with a half moon. It really isn't for weight loss but it is for a new start in my life. I left my husband of 28 yrs because he just couldn't forgive me for a wrong I committed yrs ago. I lived or should I say I "sort of" existed for 2 yrs (since 2009) living in the same house - An extremely verbally abusive relationship. I couldn't take it anymore.

My daughter (she is 20) unfortunately is having a hard time with our break-up. I refuse to tell her anything & he tells her EVERYTHING! So she is trying to work thru this. God willing - she will be fine. Ok I am getting off track. Sorry!

She is drawing this specifically for the top of my right foot! Hell, I will put it anywhere she wants as long as she draws it for me.

Have a really BLESSED DAY All!!

Luv Ya
Lisa

I will be getting a phoenix rising from ashes on a flaming background, with some ash smudges on the phoenix. Birth is not easy, rebirth is even harder, thus no one will rise unscathed. This weight loss is my rebirth into a new me and a new life.

I have been a fan of Little Mermaid since I was little. Had the bedding and everything. When I was 16 I talked about getting a ocean/mermaid design tattoo'd onto the back of my calf. I decided that when I loose about 65 lbs I will actually do it. I do not foresee my calves getting smaller BUT I figured that would be the best time. :)

I'm so glad to find this group! I am currently tattoo-less, but I have been wanting one (or two) for a while. Right now I am planning on getting one when I hit 150 lbs (60 lbs less than where I started) and maybe another at 125 lbs (my final goal). I'm still not sure what I want, exactly. I'm thinking I would love a phoenix (yes, me too) but I haven't seen any designs I really love yet. I really adore the Phoenix Nebula but don't think it would be easily translated into skin ink.
I'm also thinking a quill pen since I love writing? or a griffin, just because I think they are cool? I want a tattoo that has lasting meaning to me, I don't think I want words, and picking something is harder than I thought it would be. So any ideas are welcome! lol
I am wanting one on the inside of my left forearm and another on the outside of one of my calves. I want a tattoo I can see myself without needing a mirror.
I love reading about y'all's...thanks so much for sharing!

(If anyone knows of a really great artist in the upstate of SC, please let me know!)

Seems ridiculous, but once I hit my goal I'm getting an Italian food themed tattoo on my hip. I'm obsessed with cooking and eating Italian food, so it will come as no surprise to anyone who sees it. emoticon

The Anne Boleyn foot tattoo..I know many may not see her a role model, but I do. I'm a huge history buff, and that era, specifically Henry VIII and his wives, fascinates me. She just seems like she was strong, ambitious, and so intelligent. She was born in the wrong era; she'd be some successful, amazing CEO in our time. Her story hits me on a personal level,and she inspires me.

The Plath quote is probably the most meaningful weight-loss wise. It's, "Out of the ash I rise with my red hair, and I eat men like air." I adore the poem, and I like the imagery it evokes, of a phoenix-like transformation, emerging from the transition that this journey will be. I'm a redhead, and quite proud of it as well.

The crows/feather is a tattoo that I'm going to get with my brother, who is my best friend. We both think they're beautiful birds. They're so adaptable, they can survive anywhere. They're resourceful and intelligent, they evoke horror movies (my favorite) and literature that I love. I'd like to be more liek a crow in a lot of ways..

Amazing idea! I was trying to think of rewards for different goals achieved, and this is beyond perfect.

Size 10: Other foot tattooed. I have a few ideas for this, but I'll need to narrow it down to the one I want the most. Probably Anne Boleyn's signature.

Size 6: Sylvia Plath quote in the middle of my back. I think it'll suit the accomplishment perfectly.

When/If I get to my ultimate goal, a size 4: I'll get my crows/feather tattoo on my ribs with my brother. I might just get this if I feel good at a 6 again!

I love the idea of receiving tats as rewards! Just recently added a fleur di lis to my neck to honor my creole heritage... but now I'm going to hold off until I hit my 35 lb loss. It's not far off (currently at 32.4), but I've been at a stand still for the past 8 or 9 weeks and this will give me the motivation I need to get back on track.

I want a vine too! But I was thinking a grapevine (I drink a lot of wine) up my side when my tummy is a bit flatter. I also thought about tree roots coming down from my neck and covering my whole back, incorporating other smaller tattoos as they go down. I also want the Earth encircled with the dove of peace holding olive branches....I've got awhile to decide. If I get into the Navy, I will probably get something along nautical lines. So many choices!

Yes, I'm going to start with vines and leaves. I'll have the fairy that I have on my left shoulder blade sitting on a leaf, with vines going throughout the back and draping down onto my left arm. When I get over to the right shoulder blade, I'll ask the tattoo artist to incorporate the existing flower somehow into the vines and leaves, to make it look like a part of the whole picture.

On the bottom of my lower back, it will be the ground. I'm going to have a fairy on the ground with two little fairies by her (this represents me with my two children). I'm going to leave room on the ground to make sure I can add more little fairies in case we expand our family. I'm going to have a fairy who is flying on my left arm amongst the vines and leaves (I have pictures of all of these, I just have to figure out sizing, etc.). I'm probably going to have little flowers sprinkled throughout the back too. I'll add some more fairies too on the back, maybe on the back of my neck if I can decide which one I like (I have so many pictures of what I want done, but I don't think I can fit them all on my body).

If I like how the vines/fairy/flowers design looks on the left arm, I'd like to eventually have that happen over on the right arm (I have a picture in my mind, I'm hoping the right artist will help me bring that image into reality). I can draw so I think I will help sketch out a rough draft of what I want so the artist will have an idea beforehand. The upper arm design is sort of like a loose-fitting sleeve, if that makes sense.

In addition, I'm going to have the rose redone on my right ankle to have a fairy sitting on the rose (already have that one drawn out, I just couldn't get it done because I was breastfeeding).

I haven't figured out what to do with the left ankle yet, but, because it is a flower design, I figured it would fit in with the rest of the tattoos I hope to get (and it still looks clean so I can leave that one alone for now). I'll probably expand upward on that one later.

I also need to figure out a way to pay for this all, tattoos are expensive! But, I'm going to do a little at a time, I probably have it all done when I'm sixty!

HMBENES... can you post some pics of your ink? I want to do a partial back design onto the left arm too, that will incorporate the one I have on my left chest. Would love to see what you're working with.

Don't be pissed... when they refuse you, they're protecting you as well as themselves, and that's just what a responsible artist/studio does. They have their client's best interests at heart. Your time will come!

i never thought of using tattoos as a reward to reach my goals. LOVE IT!

i have four right now, and i want to incorporate the two i have on my back (one on each shoulder blade) into a full back design. with it even spilling out onto my left arm. i can't wait!

i have one i need to redo on my ankle though - it was my first and i didn't take care of it (plus it's 15 years old! - omg...i didn't realize that...)

tattoos are so addicting. i was pissed because i went to get one a couple of months ago and i was DENIED! i was still breastfeeding and they wouldn't ink me...i'm not anymore though!!!!

I have a few tattoos I want to get when I get to goal

I have a tattoo on my leg I want it changed to the moth from corpse bride with the date I reach my weight loss goal and a black and blue rose underneath

I also want a lower back tattoo for my sons. I am debating between a fairy sitting on a pumpkin with pumpkins on either side with the boys names or a nightmare before Christmas design with pumpkins on either side with the boys names....

Hi everyonee! A new tattoo will be my reward for reaching my goal! I'd like to say that I will be on strike from getting tattoos until then but lol.. that'll never happen! So! Until I reach my goal, I will design a tattoo that I will get all up my side! For now I'll just continue with my sleeve! ;]

Ah.. my people!

I have a huge ongoing upper body collection of tattoos. I've finished my half sleeves on both sides, and have pieces on the front and back of each shoulder, but the full design is going to extend down over my whole back..... EXCEPT.. right now, my back is gross and rolly polly, and the design just won't work!!

Obviously, this is not my only motivation for losing the weight again (I lost 170 lbs and kept it off for over 4 years once before - I know! I can't believe I let it come back!), but this is a big motivator.

So glad to find a like minded group on here.

I have 2 tattoos right now (a blue butterfly between my shoulders and butterfly outline with my husbands initials on my ring finger). I know they are so commonplace in tattoos, but I just love everything the butterfly represents and I am sort of obsessed. When I get to goal I want a butterfly piece that includes the phrase "Hope is Alive and So Am I."

I've been through so much in my life that at times I felt all hope was gone. I realized that sometimes you have to make your own hope when life gives you none. So, as long as I am alive, there is hope. As long as there is hope, I will be alive. Hope that one day I will transform from this grubby low thing, crawling on the ground of life, to someone totally new, flying and being free to truly live and fulfill my dreams.

So that will be my goal at the halfway point--to get a tattoo of my kitty. She's a beautiful calico with interesting markings (on my page). It's going over that tattoo I have on my left upper arm. It's simply a heart with a "N" inside but that part of me is in my past.

At my final destination weight, on my upper right arm I'm completing the seagull I had done in 1976. Remember "Jonathan Livingston Seagull?? That was my inspiration then. LOL Now I'll add waves, shells and maybe a lighthouse.

I love tattoos and have ALWAYS considered it as ART no matter what they said--and they've made some very condescending remarks. Even the relatives. And I've heard the "what are you going to say when you're a grandma?" I'd line up the grandbabies and tell them the history of each one!! (I've got 12) I don't believe in full body part tattoos or the devil-skull-snake thing so I just do ones no bigger than the rim of a coffee cup.

Hello :) I am not tattoed yet, but I have always dreamt of getting one.

This thread inspired me to reward myself as soon as I reach my goal weight, which is still far away, but long enough to help me decide what I want and where.

I would want it to celebrate my weight loss and my innr strength, also my love for my then-husband. Originally, I wanted his name tattoed but I agree that it is not the best idea, even though I know he is my soulmate.

Anyway, I am a bad decision maker and cant draw at all. So I will have to find a way to visualize my dream tattoo well enough for someone else to draw it.

Tough one :))

I got a skull with a bow on my right calf for when I had lost 100 lbs. When I reach goal (which will be 164 lb lost!) I'm getting an old school gray/blackwork sparrow with "live fast, die free" under it.

Once I can get my skin removed, done having kids, in shape, etc. I'm getting "Il faut suffrir pour etre belle" ("one must suffer to be beautiful") on my ribs on the right side.

This is a great thread. I just got my latest tattoo to celebrate a 25 lb loss (I was actually only at 23, but financially the timing was good). I'm planning a full back piece for sometime later this year. It's not really a reward tatt, but I do want to lose more weight before I get it because of back fat issues. I want to be proud to show it off without feeling uncomfortable about it. I have had plans to get new ink each 25 lbs... I'm just not sure what all I'm wanting... I have ideas, but nothing set.

Wow there are some awesome ideas on here! I have "get a new tattoo" as one of my weightloss milestones and I've been thinking long and hard about what I want. Most likely i'll be adding to my backpeice or the 3 fleur de lis across my lower back.

I think the idea of love SCHNOOKIEPIE is awesome! I am going to get one done as well when I reach my goal. I haven't completely decided what I am going to get but I want it to wrap around my ankle and foot... or if I look exceptionally hot lol I want one to wrap around my side. Something delicate and artsy.

I want to get the word "love" in cursive on my arm. It represents awareness of depression, suicide, and self mutilation, and reminds me to love myself too. I think if I make my goal, that is definitely one of my rewards.

I also like the idea of getting tat's for weight 'milestones'. My tats now are an owl sitting on a branch on my shoulder. The one on my foot is a branch shaped into a peace sign. Since I want so many I'm probably going to do it every 25 pounds...and then a HUGE one when I reach my goal weight. It all depends on my pain tolerance! Most of them will probably be wildlife/Earthy/music related.

Also, my boyfriend/fiance/whatever lol wants to get tat's together...so we may wait until we reach our goal weight. We want to get lizards, because they are one animal that appears the most "in love" with their mates in the Animal Kingdom... We have a really cool picture of opposite lizards, one's holding an acoustic guitar and the other is holdting an electric guitar. I can't wait for that!!

I love everyone's ideas... and congrats to those who've already gotten some in honor of their weight loss!

I've wanted a new tattoo since I had my daughter two years ago, but I'm still trying to figure out what to get. I wanted something fairly large, but then I have to be mindful of where I get it since I work in a very professional environment. And then I also want something a little sexy, similar to the one I have on my thigh, but somewhere that I couldn't get one with all the weight. I have a little while to come up with something, and maybe I'll end up with two. I was thinking of something that symbolized new beginnings/rebirth, so we'll see.

I actually do not have any tattoos yet, but I want one and have wanted one for a long time now. I have made my first tattoo my reward for hitting my goal weight (40 pounds lost). I want a hydrangea flower with an infinity ribbon on my right heel (by my ankle bone). The hydrangea is my mother's favorite flower because it was her grandmother's favorite and it also symbolizes beauty. So it can then stand for both my family and myself and my journey to becoming a healthier person. I am getting married in 2 years and also want Hyndrangeas as my bridal flowers!!!

I'm definitely planning on a back piece for a reward when I get to my goal weight. The design keeps changing, so I know I'm not ready for it yet (not forgetting that it's to be a reward for getting that far). I know it will have something to do with music (everything on my back does), but it remains to be seen. We have some amazing artists here in Tacoma, and I had such a good experience when I got my wrists done at Flaming Dragon, I know I will return there.

All the choices are yours - you only have to make them! I'm choosing 'today' over 'someday'!

I'm planning to get two tattoos in the next 3 years. The first is that currently I have an upper back and a lower back tattoo, and I'd love to some how integrate that into a larger back piece.

But one thing I've always wanted is a tattoo along the side of my body, but because of my weight, I've never been comfortable with the idea. Once I reach my weight loss goal - my reward will be that tattoo :)

DentedWorld, thanks for that referral. I checked out their website and ended up contacting a different artist, but in the same shop. I am STOKED! He did just a simple pencil sketch of a rework of an existing tattoo and it already looks awesome! I can't wait till he's got the whole thing drawn out and we can start the work!

It's going to be on my side, on my ribcage between my breast and hip.
