Weight loss tattoos?
 
Has anybody gotten a tattoo to either commemorate a big weight loss, or done a progressive tattoo that they add to as they go?

I'm really thinking of doing the latter. I like the idea of never letting myself go above my last documented number. I don't need a tattoo to hold me accountable, but I do love the connection to the immortalization of that moment in time. I have 3 other tattoos that signify other important moments in my life, why not this journey also?

I haven't found many ideas online so I'm curious what others have done.

I am thinking of getting one closer to goal that says "aut viam inveniam aut faciam" - I will either find a way or make one.

For now i just have a silicone wristband that has my start and goal inscribed.

Hi CSH...

Do stretch marks count? I could just color them in with blue and red Sharpies...

Not exactly the same, but DH and I have both lost a LOT of weight and our wedding rings no longer fit. We plan on having them resized "some day" but got our rings tattooed in the meantime. I also, now that my face is thinner and more defined, just got my eyebrows and eyeliner tattooed. I would never have done that when I was heavier.

Yeah I could do that too. Orange and black and I'd be a tiger. LOL

I did! When I lost 100 pounds, I had a 2" flamingo wearing sunglasses standing on a scale put on my right hip. I'm having a hip replacement next month and wonder if it's going to wreck it.
