Gratitude: the Tattoo Edition

Having come across other grateful people with thankful tattoos, I, of course, had to share. Maybe I'm biased, but I just feel like this kind of ink has extra meaning, and seeing these photos just makes me wonder what these people's stories are...

(I'm sorry to this guy for chopping his head off - nothing personal, just that I don't support smoking and find cigarettes aesthetically unpleasing. See full photo here.)

And a bonus guy "thank you" tattoo photo!

So what do you think? Would you want to hear the stories? I mean, I might as well go ahead and ask.


  1. I was just about to comment on the cigarette thing when you posted on my Instagram ;)

    By the way, June is the No Smoking month here in the Philippines!

    1. Every month should be a non-smoking month! Lol And what a cool commenting coincidence :)

  2. I like the "grateful" tattoo on the foot the best! :) But I do wonder about the story behind the bald guy's tattoo.

  3. ..what a great selection Julia , it must be quite hard to find something like that favorite of course is yours :)

    1. Oh, you're so right, it is hard to find cool thankful stuff! If you know what I mean by "cool" lol

      And thanks, haha You don't have to like it, but I'm glad you do! :)

  4. Hey there!!
    As i was googling "thank you" tattoos i came across your webpage and saw my image there.
    Im the last one with the "aesthetically unpleasant cigarette" in my mouth.
    I must add, it isnt a "aesthetically unpleasant cigarette" but a "aesthetically unpleasant joint" im smoking there.
    In any case, i think beheading is a rather severe punishment for smoking.
    Maybe i should tattoo "sorry" on my other hand.

    No but seriously, that took alot of internet searching to compile. Great job and...

    1. Haha, hi there dear Anonymous! :)

      Seriously sorry for having to have done this to your photo and for having mistaken the joint for a cigarette, but... I just had to! Kids might be watching this space, you know :)

      Thanks a lot for stopping by and for leaving a comment, appreciate it!

      Best wishes to you and your cool tattoo and Merry Christmas!


  5. Tattoos can be grateful if they decorate. I love to decorate myself and this applies to many things. For example, I really like to make beautiful eyelashes. You can take a look at the service here to see full info. Simple makeup and interesting jewelry are all that a girl needs to look stylish) I'm grateful to the universe for this miracle.


I appreciate you taking the time to connect and share your thoughts, so thank you for your comment! And while you're at it... Why not tell me what you're thankful for today? ;-)
