Dream catcher tattoo Pabst 10 kids; Muthafuckin, GA, United States 26185 posts

So I'm Cherokee and I've wanted a dream catcher tattoo for years. I always had dream catchers all over my room when I was younger, plus I like to sleep :lol: anyway, they always held a lot of meaning for me and I've been dying to have one tattooed on.
Obviously they're super popular, verging on trendy now. I already have a relatively trendy tattoo - they're swallows but drawn differently - and I'm not sure how I feel about another. It would go on the back of my arm so it's not like it would be hidden like my swallows are. A friend said I could "mix it up" but I don't want it to be gigantic or have a whole bunch of detail because it'll be part of a half sleeve eventually.
Either way, I want a tattoo that honors my roots and I want it for my birthday, which is Saturday. Halp?

I'm part Lumbee and Cherokee :D I have a dreamcatcher on my forearm if you want to see. But I got it because I've always loved them since I was a little child. Each feather represents my kids, and DH. :D

maybe add your spirit animal in with it? the more it means to you the less it should matter about what others think

I like it :) nice and simple.
I think I'm just going to go with the dream catcher. It's not like I'm taking a picture in and having it copied exactly.

f**k it. Trendy or not. Get it if you want it.



I do know what you mean though, I have birds on my stomach. Super trendy right? Well they are exact replicas of my moms tattoos that she has. So trendy can suck it :)

I think that's an awesome idea for a tat, especially since you're Cherokee and there's some meaning behind it. But your post reminded me of a friend that just posted a picture of her BD's new tattoo. It's a dream catcher on his hand. I saw it and thought how badass it was.
dreamcatcher.jpgIt says Lula on the side of it, their baby's name is Tahlula and I thought that was pretty cute.
