Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday: week 25

Welcome to week 25 of Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday! I did an intro post where I explained my goal in posting these every week and how you can submit your photo to be featured. Check out the post if you need to refresh your memory. Since I've went through all my tattoos, now I'll be sharing photos I've found online, and the occasional viewer submission when they come in. 
If you're familiar with my tattoo posts, you'll know I have seashells on my right foot. They're not done very well (mainly the waves around) so I've been wanting them covered up/redone for a while.

I saw the above photo on Instagram and something about it called to me. I've liked the idea behind bracelets or anklets for a long time, but never imagined getting one until I saw this picture. 

I really like the detail of the clasp and the extra chain hanging down. The little shadow behind it helps with the affect of appearing to be real and I could totally see this as a real bracelet that someone just replicated in to a tattoo. 

As I get older, I seem to attract more to realistic type tattoos or ones that could be real. I think there's a special talent when it comes to tattooing and not everyone can do it. Hopefully one day I'll be able add some realistic pieces to my body!

What an awesome link-up idea! I'll have to submit mine once I get them touched up... I have 3 large back pieces that are in need of a touch up. Can you get tattoos when you're nursing? I never hear a straight answer on that question one way or another.
