My 4th Half-Nekkid Thursday


Wow..fourth one already?! Time flies, huh?

So, anyway...I got this tat when I was in San Diego with my fiance at the time...He was in the Navy going through his 'A' School. I love koalas, so naturally I picked this one. Yes, his name was Jim...no, that's not my husband's name. Shouldn't have done it, I know. BUT, My Granddad's name is Jim and HE was in the Navy, so now I just say it's in honor of him! LOL

Gonna get the name part covered up eventually...just gotta figure out how. Any ideas? Oh, in case you wondered, it's on my upper left thigh.

HAPPY HNT!

just.a.girl said...

EverlastingKnowItAll said...

Great picture, I'm loving the ink show that's going on this week! I'm no artist, tattoo or otherwise, but since you asked for ideas...how about extending the tree branch and adding another koala?

Happy HNT!

tokitikki said...

awesome!

the above comment is a great idea!

happy hnt!

Freiya said...

that is a lovely tattoo, very cute :)
happy hnt!

Tina said...

Aww, cute little Koala! Aren't tattoos addicting? Happy HNT!

mdrock said...

I say have an artist turn the word Jim into the continent of Australia and fill it in, would be easy, cheap, and would go with the Kuddly Koala!

Happy HNT MKB! :-)

sasfdasfdljkfksdjkfjsd said...

I was gonna say the same thing as everlasting up there

my scar is from a little cancerous piece of skin I had surgically removed, not quite as sexy as my love story but maybe I'll tell it later, thanks for commenting.

Romeo Jensen said...

lime said...

awww, nice story to go with it. happy HNT!

Benjamin said...

I was also going to say extend the tree. Damn my showing up late! Check in with addict, she'll know what to do. Happy HNT!

madgirl said...

thats about the cutest tattoo ive ever seen :)

Mel said...

Very cute! I bet that would be very easy to cover up and I bet Addict could tell you how. You could probably get some kind of "circle" design around the bear. Like vines, leaves etc.

halo said...

Thats a very cute tattoo. I wouldnt cover it. :) Happy HNT!

Flygirl said...

I love seeing people's tattoos. You can learn alot.

You could probably make the script part of some sort of scrolly border that would go around the whole tat. But really? What do I know? :)

Cheers.

James Goodman said...

Cool tat. I posted a pic of one of my Tats as well. Happy HNT!

MrsCoach2U said...

I'm addicted to Miami Ink and they covered a name up with vines and flowers, a tribal type border around the whole thing might work too, or waves under the anchor.

Jillian said...

Great Tat!! I know a place that around Christmas has an X-Mas sell. The will help you cover up your exs name at a discount!!!!

Happy HNT!!

art said...

Happy HNT!

Happy Hiker said...

Well it's a good thing that Jim is a common enough name. : ) Cute Koala. Happy HNT!

Chuck said...

Sure your husband loves that!! LOL

HHNT!

MamaKBear said...

Thanks y'all! Excellent suggestions...I had actually thought about what everlasting said..extending the branch and adding another koala.

I like the idea of adding Australia to it too.

Ariella said...

Happy HNT!
Cute koala, and I am sure when you go talk to a tattoo artist they will be able to suggest something.
At least you like the pic!

Gabby said...

With a halo as well! Ahhh!

I say keep the Jim - if you'd just told us the story about your grandfather and nothing else, I'd have believed you...

Chicken said...

Oh yes...the tattoo with the name...! How many times have I seen this. Oh well at least you can attribute it to someone else. You could always get a dog and name it Jim too! Just kiddin, you rock sister..HHNT!

barefoot_mistress said...

Cute! Happy HNT!

CUTE, very cute!!

Happy HNT!!!

Sherri W. said...

Very cute! Happy HNT!

AndyT13 said...

Cute! I wouldn't cover up the name. The story is more intersting with it. BUt it would be easy enough to extend the tree into a little jungle scene. Happy HTN!

Wirthy said...

I am thinking about getting the same tattoo. I'll even include the "jim" part.

Mr.Brian/Mr.Fletcher said...

cute pic. And if you want to disguise the name, there are tattoo artists out there that can camouflage it within another pattern. I've seen other people's tats who have had that done.

Anonymous said...

Love your tattoo...I can't wait to post mine I have 3.

Happy HNT!

Aw, what a cute koala bear! Happy HNT!

My suggestion? Make the name part of the little tree/vine he's on, maybe?

Networkchic said...

Very cute tat!!!
Happy HNT!

Blither said...

Koala.. Love it. I had Simple Dove Carrying a Olive Branch Above my Anklet of Poppies.. Everyone says.. What's the meaning behind the "Twig and the Wishbone"?
Always go for detail.. Great job with yours.
Even if the Jim guy didn't work out. Thank god for the back up Grand Dad even if you have the Tat in an semi-odd location for a Grand-dad dedication. *Smiles*

Merry HNT

Cathy said...

Glad for you there was another significant Jim in your life it can now refer to. Thanks for stopping by my blog; sorry no HNT there: nobody needs to see that...:)

Michelle said...

Hey, I got my third tat in San Diego while I was there on business...In the middle of the tat the power went out and I had to hobble up seven blocks (since it is on my ankle) to find a place that would finish the other artist's work....Not an easy thing to do...Happy HNT!

Seamus said...

Hey! and HHNT! :)
Hmmm - I got called a koala bear today! Bwahahaha!

SignGurl said...

Look at you girl, almost 100 comments! Beautiful tat.

Mark Leslie said...

Maybe just stick with the grandfather ode theory...or a story that Jim was a stuffed monkey you had when you were young......(that is a monkey, right?) Happy HNT!

deconstructionist said...

That is so adorable! If I were to get a tattoo, it would have to be something cutesy like that. Except I don't know any Jims.

Anonymous said...

Just say the Koala's name is Jim *s*

Happy HNT

Jeff said...

^^ That was my comment ^^
Still figuring out blogger, so excuse the double post.

muse-in-training said...

For a cover-up, you may want to expand on the eucalyptus tree he's on, make it go all the way around.

Happy HNT!
