I’m looking to design a simple, classic black tattoo to sybolize my mom and my fight against cancer. Quote: Fight like a Girl
I’m looking to design a simple, classic black tattoo to sybolize my mom and my fight against cancer. I would like the tattoo to start on my lower back on the left side and wrap up my side and end right before it gets to the side of my left breast. I’m not really sure about what is considered a medium or large size for a tattoo, but I hope that the location kind of helps…
I want the tattoo to incorporate the breast cancer symbol in it and I want the words \”fight like a girl\”.
I’ve included a couple pictures of ideas that I’ve been looking at, but I really am up for any ideas that you might have and what you think would look good on me as a 20 year old, blonde, college student and athlete, but also something I can still work when I get older =)

Tattoo art has become one of the most popular forms of self expression as tattoos are used to say out subtly the attitude and feelings of the bearer, without being too loud about them. This is the reason why text and letters are being increasingly used in this form of body adornment, as they do a lot more than looking good. In fact, they help you express your ideas and thoughts and quotes by great men make a perfect choice in this regard. Quotes tattoo can have a great attraction for the onlookers, irrespective of the fact whether they are done in simple fonts or artistic ones.
The best part of bearing a quotes tattoo is their ability to grab instant attention, as they are an insight into the belief and philosophy of a great personality. The quotes bear a positive and encouraging value, which can bring phenomenal changes in the life of the bearer and many others who find inspiration from these quote tattoos. These tattoos may define how the life is to be lived and bring about new hope and courage in life. There may be a quote which you might have read somewhere, at some point of time, which you may love to have inked on your body later on. It would be great to have something which inspired you as a part of yourself for the rest of your life. The fact is that a quotes tattoo can give you much more than embellishment for your body; it can add a new meaning to your life and inspire you live better, happier and more fulfilled life.
Basically, there are two varieties in quotes tattoos, firstly, the ones which have only the quotes and secondly, those which have some design elements along with them, which may include flowers, butterflies, tribal symbols, bees, musical instruments, birds phoenix, dove, swallow, dragonflies, ribbon, infinity sign, cross, dragon, lion, owl, elephant, wolf, stars, sun, moon, disney, dreamcatchers, feathers, arrows, compass, trees, angel and wings bows, ribbons and much more. The variety in quotes too, is immense, covering a range of topics such as religion, philosophy, world peace and inspirational tattoos. Another thing to bear in mind while choosing the quote for a tattoo is the age and sex of the bearer. While some quotes are powerful and masculine, others are delicate and feminine. The font, color and size of the quote tattoo also make a difference in its visual appeal. Again, it is essential to check the spelling and grammar of the quote and also compare the tattoo with the original quote before you have it finally inked on your body, because the permanent nature of the tattoo hardly leaves a margin of error.
A tattoo once inked is going to be a part of you forever and is almost impossible to get rid of; therefore, you should double check the tattoo before making it a part of your body. Also, you must be sure about the size as well as the spacing of the tattoo as a faulty choice can compromise the visual quality of the quote tattoo. It is no logic to spend a great deal of money and bear so much pain, if the tattoo is not legible and attractive. Similarly, the font too needs to be chosen with care as a font which is too loud can look horrible as you age, while the one which is not prominent, fails to impress the onlooker. Such tattoos can be inked in conventional black and grey or a range of vibrant colors, depending upon the preference of the bearer. Another important factor while getting a quotes tattoo is to get it inked on the right location of your body.
The placement of quotes tattoo is, like all other tattoo designs, largely dependent upon its size. Larger tattoos look good on large areas such as the back, stomach, sleeve, rib, chest, thighs, legs and shoulder, while smaller ones are ideally done on ankles, legs, wrists, back of the neck, spine, back of the ear and even on fingers.
Overall, a quote tattoo needs to be inked after a great deal of contemplation as it says all about your attitude, rather than just making you the center of attention. You must choose an expert tattoo artist, who has a great deal of experience in making beautiful quotes tattoos and can also help you with some good suggestions coming from the expertise he has acquired by working in this field.
There is a very special quality about quotes tattoos which makes them a lot different from the rest of the tattoo designs. Some other design elements can be added to simple quotes designs, but these elements should complement the meaning expressed by the quote. This will make it play the dual role of making the tattoo more eye catching, as well as adding some extra appeal to its meaning and expression. Also, quotes tattoos are an absolute matter of personal choice rather than imitation of popular designs in tattoo art.

My Chemical Romance couldn’t have come up with a more inspirational quote that we absolutely love. It looks lovely on the wrist and will always be a great reminder that you CAN do it- even when you’re alone.

These lovely lyrics from The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus are the perfect combination of deep and romantic, with a little splash of girly attitude to tie it together beautifully. Oh, and the cursive writing is the PERFECT touch!

You won’t have another chance to change things or make things right!

Aside from the absolutely adorable key with pink bow, this whimsical tattoo also has TONS of meaning: that we shouldn’t take anything as a failure, but always learn from it.

I love this quote. It’s simply magical, and something we should keep in mind: leave the past behind and always look towards the future. And those birds- SO cute. A great addition!

Because even when we are broken and down in the dumps, we need to pull ourselves back out and conquer everything in our paths. Plus this is a really trendy quote from some awesome songs like Blackbird.

As we get older, we tend to put our dreams behind us, regarding them as ‘silly’ or ‘pointless’. But with this quote, we can remember to NEVER stop dreaming and never give up on them either- no matter how old we get.
Tattoo quotes about life: “I refuse to sink”
Okay, let’s just be honest: this is an INCREDIBLY trendy tattoo, first and foremost for the foot placement, secondly for the ever-popular anchor detail, and of course, the inspirational quote “I refuse to sink”. A 10 out of 10 tat!

Yes, this is an adorable quote from The Lion King. But it’s also something we should always remember! If this quote doesn’t it do it for you but you’re still a fan of Disney (and may even have a Disney quote in mind) you could easily switch it up with another beautiful quote from your favorite Disney move.
“Where life begins and love never ends Family”
Instead of a traditional Family tattoo, try a wonderful quote like this, which is both beautiful AND true.
“Love never fails”
This is just plain adorable!
“Each day is a gift and not a given right”
A wonderful reminder to never take a day for granted.

Such a lovely tattoo, especially if it is in honor of someone you loved deeply who has passed on.
Geez, you won’t hear people say this too often- but wow is it truthful!
“Don’t dream your life, live your dream”
Wow! This is SUCH a wonderful quote and the perfect reminder to quit dreaming about our perfect life and MAKE IT HAPPEN!
“This too shall pass”
An extremely popular and heartwarming tattoo that reminds us that no matter what we’re going through, no matter how bad it is, it WILL pass.
“Live every moment, Laugh every day, Love beyond words”
Another spin off of the crazily trendy “Live laugh love” quote, except this time there’s a few added words that make this quote REALLY pop!
“Count every beautiful thing”
This beautiful quote is almost as gorgeous as the roses attached to it. A very majestic and eye-catcjing piece that is nothing short of stunning.
“I suppose it will all make sense when we grow up”
A wonderful quote we probably all remember from our childhood. Oh, how I wish it were true though, don’t you? We love all of the extra goodies with this quote like the tree, little boy, bear, and birds!
“Wish upon a star”
For all my Disney fanatics out there, this is a special quote tattoo just for you. I’m sure we all have heard this whimsical quote before, and who wouldn’t want something as magical as this quote tatted directly on their skin? If this doesn’t brighten up your bad days, I don’t know what will.
This lovely quote is not only very inspirational, but also comes from one of the most notorious rappers of all time, Tupac.
“She believed she could so she did”
Paired with the dandelion and flying birds, this adorable tattoo is as girly as it is uplifting.
“The will to live will always outweight the ability to die”
When you just want a quote tattoo that is truthful and to the point, this is an excellent option. Plus it looks lovely with this particular text and location.

I was diagnosed on January 4, 2013 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia: my 24th birthday. I spent my birthday in the ER and stayed there for 3 weeks while I started chemo. It took 4 months to get me into remission, and I made plans to get a bone marrow transplant at MD Anderson in Houston, Tx.
This situation was drug on for so long that I didn’t end up getting my transplant until September 4, 2013. The transplant worked, and I was in remission for a while. My former doctor gave me the wrong dosage of my anti-rejection drug, and in turn, it suppressed my new marrow too much and let my remaining cancer cells take over.
I participated in this study at The Unniversity of Pennsylvania after I relapsed in April. It’s the CART-19 T cell study where they take out your own cells and reprogram them to attack the cancer cells. This study put me into remission for 2 months, but I just relapsed on July 29. Again.
I’m looking into many different treatment options, as my family and I are devastated that we have to start this journey all over again. Getting a new chemo for 5 weeks (once every Tuesday) and it ends September 23. We will see what my health is like after that. Money is tight, and any help is greatly appreciated. Even if it’s just spreading the word, please help in any way you can.

Readers have been getting in touch about their experiences of terminated job interviews, losing out on promised promotions and leaving jobs because of their tattoos.
It followed a Magazine article which asked whether discrimination against people with tattoos should be banned in the workplace.
Here are some of their stories.
‘I was told I’m a bad example to children’
I’m 35 and quite heavily tattooed. I had a job as a mid-day assistant at a school. I was taken on having tattoos and facial piercings which during the winter months was fine as I was covered up, but when the summer arrived my arms were on show.
I was promptly issued with a \”standards of dress\” guide. It said that visible tattoos and facial piercings were not setting a good example and should be covered up. This was the first bit of communication I had received during my job.
I was good at my job and the children seemed to like talking about my tattoos. I did start a bit of a campaign but I didn’t want to work in an environment that said because I have tattoos and a piercing I cannot do the job.
After a week or so I went to see the headmaster and resigned with immediate effect. He had called me in to have meetings with personnel over the issues I had raised, but I didn’t feel I wanted to work in a place that discriminates against tattoos and piercings and I don’t believe I should have to fight to justify that I’m a hard worker and a decent person.
I just feel it’s sad that in 2014 we can be so discriminatory about people’s choices, I feel sad that children grow up being taught these shallow-minded views. The best bit was that after a month or so of me leaving they had a school fete with a temporary tattoo stall for the children!
My old boss was against body modifications because of her religious beliefs. I was constantly harassed about my piercings and tattoos.
I had hours cut after getting my tattoos, even though they aren’t visible. I have both feet done as well, but always wear socks and shoes. I work in childcare and was told that even out in public I had to keep appearances up, so to keep covered, because I might see the children I looked after outside hours.
In my uniform you can’t see my tattoos. As I keep it professional but I’ve been told that I’m unapproachable and scary with tattoos and piercings and that could lose potential clients to the business.
I have both full sleeves and my previous employer stated you had to cover all tattoos when in work hours, which I found wrong because other members of staff were allowed to wear earrings which is another form of body modification. One rule for one et al.
I now work for a company that does not discriminate against tattoos. I am currently a contract manager for a hospital. In my previous job I was an operations manager where their policies stated that all tattoos had to be covered up at all times. This included any contractor working on site.
I’m a heavily tattooed 20-year-old girl. I’ve had very mixed reactions to my art. I find that because I’m such a young girl and have as many as I do (I lost count at 50) that people either love them and find me brave or hate me and insult me by using my tattoos as ammunition.
I’ve even had an employer hang up the phone on me when they found out I had tattoos.
About a year and a half ago, in 2012, I applied for a job as a waitress. It was a half telephone interview, half seeing when you’re free. It was going fine. The employer started talking about the uniform. When he said it was short-sleeved, as soon as I said I had my arms tattooed, he just hung up.
I was working as a shop assistant in a mobile phone shop when a customer started screaming in my face. They had some problems with their top-up I was trying to help them with but they had bought it from another shop and I couldn’t give them a refund. They completely switched.
\”You’ve only got this job because you’ve got tattoos,\” they shouted. They were saying I was disgusting and I’d let down the company. They just really kicked off – you know, when they do that look when they tut and they spit at the same time. And then walked out of the shop, so I went round the back and cried.
I have had awards for my customer service and in that shop my manager had sleeves, my other manager had a neck tattoo.
I’m not rude or horrible. I don’t do drugs or anything. I work hard, pay bills, do charity work for animals and yet they call me disgusting names for no reasons. The art I have isn’t even offensive. Just cause I’m heavily tattooed doesn’t mean I’m nasty, scary or stupid.
I was promised a promotion when I turned 18. I was waiting on this promotion from a buser – a person who buses tables, washes dishes, serves food and stocks coolers – to a server at a bar and grill for five months.
On my 18th birthday I got a half-sleeve and my boss immediately denied me the promotion he promised me even though some of my co-workers had much more visible tattoos and piercings.
He didn’t say directly that it was because of my tattoo, but the comments he made toward me made it clear he didn’t like it. He asked me if I was crazy for getting it and why my parents would let me do this to myself.
He also said it’s very dark (I don’t really know if he meant dark as in black or dark as in creepy) and that I’m better for in the kitchen rather then being a waitress.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
The overall timeline of the film is about twelve months but it is inconsistent as far as the seasons. When Blomkvist arrives at the Vanger’s island, it is the dead of winter with deep snowfall. A short while later, when Blomkvist is talking to the detective on a pay phone (who asks if he is surviving the winter weather), the snow is gone and the deciduous trees have no leaves, but a few minutes later, when the scene cuts to Henrik Vanger being rushed to the hospital, it is suddenly the middle of summer, sunny and the trees are in full bloom. When Lisbeth arrives on the island, and she and Blomkvist are sitting outside at night talking, the trees close to the house are bare and a howling wind can be heard in the background, but the next day trees have leaves. Some weeks later, when Lisbeth saves Bloomkvist from Martin, it is winter again, with heavy frost on the ground and trees are bare once more. A little while after that, when Lisbeth and Blomkvist go to find Harriet, trees on the street are in full bloom. A day or two later, when Blomkvist is talking to Harriet in the park, it is apparently now early spring because the smaller deciduous trees are only just beginning to sprout new leaves while some bigger ones have none at all. At the very end, it’s just before Christmas again.

I fight like a girl. I have a tattoo on the back of my neck, a pair of pink boxing gloves held together by the breast cancer ribbon and on the ribbon this phrase is written: I Fight Like a Girl. I adopted this phrase when my son gave me a bracelet that he and his father picked out for me from the hospital gift shop. The bracelet has pink boxing gloves all around it and that phrase written on it with the breast cancer awareness symbol. Two things that are near and dear to my heart, boxing and Breast Cancer Awareness. Pink is not favorite color, olive green is but you would never know that now because just about everything I own now is pink or has pink in it. To me pink is not just a color anymore.
I found the lump when I was bathing; it wasn’t there two months before when I performed the last self-examination. I was diagnosed with breast cancer just a couple of weeks later, I had just turned 33. I had a choice to make, I could get depressed, angry and sad and give up or I could face it and fight with all the strength I had. I chose to fight, to fight for my children who were 3 and 8 at the time; I decided to fight like a girl!
I set my mind to do whatever I could do to ensure that I would live to see my children graduate from high school, college, walk down the aisle and one day to see my grandchildren. I wanted to set an example for my kids that no matter how difficult the fight maybe, God has equipped us with everything we need to persevere and loved ones to draw strength from when we can’t find anymore within ourselves.
Right before I was diagnosed, I had decided to finally pursue a dream I had since I was a young girl. To obtain a black belt in mixed martial arts. I started with boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) and I was just starting to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu when my training was interrupted. But just as I suspected I fell in love with Muay Thai. As I little girl I used to watch boxing and dreamed of getting in the ring too. That’s when I realized that I was indeed fighting the fight of my life, for my life!
One of the first things I did was to go online to look for “fighting” apparel that also incorporated breast cancer awareness; I didn’t find anything at the time. Then one day I received an email from Title MMA featuring the Knock Out line. I was so excited that I ordered all the Knock Out shirts I could find, in every color and style they had, even different size because I wasn’t sure of what the finished product would be!
I underwent a double mastectomy followed by 3 surgeries for reconstruction. That year was the most difficult year of my life, I had to find strength to keep going every day. The physical pain was greater than natural childbirth, but the emotional pain is unmatched. Nothing could have prepared me for the emotional scars left behind by cancer. Sometime after my last reconstructive surgery my daughter brought me a balloon to blow up for her, I nearly cried when I realized that I couldn’t do it. After seeing my body so weakened by the cancer, I thought I was never going to be able to live a normal life again let alone do any kind of physical activity. I decided it was time to do anything that I could do so that I may return to train as quickly as possible. I started walking and running I could only run for a minute or two. But I was determined to get back in the gym.
Two years ago my boyfriend took me to his Muay Thai gym and introduced me to his long time teacher, Saekson Janjira, 6 time undefeated world champion. I walked in expecting to take a trial class and afterwards decide if this is something I wanted to sign up to do. When I walked in Saekson said to me, do you want to pay x amount or xx amount, and I answered, well of course I would rather pay less and he said; Ok, you cannot cancel for a year and he walked out. I signed a one year contract before I had ever taken a single class from him, I thought to myself, well I am going to pay for this for the next year, I may as well take it seriously. Muay Thai has helped me to regain physical strength but also to regain the confidence in myself that I had before. If I didn’t have such a positive environment to go to everyday at the gym, I don’t know where my state of mind would be in right now. The doctors can help heal your physical being, but the emotional healing is all up to you.
Almost three years later, I am cancer free and I have a yellow-white armband in Muay Thai under Saekson Janjira, by the way, I never told my teacher that I had cancer, I am not ashamed by any means but I didn’t want to set any limitations on myself from the get go. I will someday achieve a black belt in mixed martial arts and I will continue to Fight Like a Girl!

They bonded over fandom and she got the tattoo of her dreams.
Erykane Art is a tattoo shop in Boise that’s gained a loyal local following thanks to the gorgeous artwork of owner Eryka Jensen . Her work is so popular clients and fans on Facebook and Instagram have offered to fly her to different cities to have her do custom tattoos for them.
But some clients come for different reasons—like Reddit user WashuZ, who chose Jensen’s tattoo shop initially because her name is Erika, too.
Luckily for her, she chose the right kindred spirit. A year later, she walked out sporting this:
Erika came to the shop hoping for the subtlest tattoo ever—cat whiskers on her inner pointer finger. But once inside the shop, she noticed that one of Jensen’s tattoo guns—the tool used to apply ink—was decorated with art from Sailor Moon, one of her favorite series.
\”We just started talking about the show,\” Erika told the Daily Dot. \”We were both huge fans! I mentioned how I saw other Sailor Moon tattoos and that I’d love one as well. I have always wanted a sleeve, so it just fit to put those two together. She knows the show and the characters and I felt that she could put good detail into this.\”
\”Good detail\” is putting it mildly. Over roughly 36 hours of work lasting more than a year, Jensen created a detailed sleeve featuring Sailor Moon and the show’s three adorable cats, Luna, Artemis, and the kitten Diana. And of course no Sailor Moon tattoo would be complete without a red rose.
When Erika shared her tattoo in its all-but-finished state on r/SailorMoon, redditors were impressed and so were we. When we wrote her to ask for the details on how she got such a gorgeous sleeve, Erika shared loads of progress photos with us. Eryka did Erika’s sleeve in three basic parts—the outline for the cats, Sailor Moon, and the background details including Usagi’s scepter, castle, and rose. Then she did the whole thing over again, this time in color.
First, she did the cats:
And on to the fun part—color.
Erika told us she pushed for bright colors in the tattoo because to her, \”a rainbow of colors means happiness.\”
She also said that while she didn’t walk into the store intending to spend the next year of her life getting an elaborate anime sleeve tattoo, it was worth it because Sailor Moon changed her life:
Sounds like Moon Healing Activation to us.
Of course there’s really nothing silly about the inspirational properties of anime. Jensen’s sessions are in-demand, and don’t come cheap. Currently her sleeves are done over multiple all-day sessions. A single day session runs $500, which means Erika’s arm is roughly more valuable than the cars some of us are driving.
All this, and she still walked out with the tiny cat whiskers tattoo.
