So, for a while I've wanted a tattoo, and for a while I don't mean a week! I have actually put alot of thought into what I'd want and am near enough decided that I'm going to get a key on the back of my neck for my 18th birthday, yes it's two years away but I thought I might as well share my ideas :)

I thought about a key as in my family you get given keys by everyone for your 18th birthday, I know alot of other people do this as well but some do it for 21st birthdays instead. One single key was also used as a symbol for knowledge and life by the Greeks which I think is quite interesting. I also wanted it on the back of my neck so it's wouldn't be something that not everyone will see and so people will only know about it if I show them so it's quite personal and not just there to get attention off others.

Here's a few pictures I've found, originally I did just want the heart key but now I'm quite liking the type of key in the first image. Let me know your thoughts or if you have any tattoos!


  1. I have been wanting a tattoo for a couple of years too. The key tattoo idea is a nice idea to get. x

  2. The heart key tattoo is so cute :) I think the first one is too though!x

  3. Sounds to me like you have it all sorted!!! My advice would be to make sure you still like it in 2 years time... I spent ages trying to work out what I wanted for my first tattoo (I have three now!!) and Im so glad I waited because all three of them are EXACTLY how I envisaged them to look!

    They are all gorgeous designs as well. I am in love with the last one!! xxx

  4. This is cute, i like the key on the shoulder. I used to want a key, the pain puts me off, im a wimp with needles. if i got it done id want it near my hip bone :]
