Thanks to you all for your continued time, appreciation, comments, votes, and everything in between. Bill, I have been pressed for time over the past month or so, my appologies to you and everyone else. I truly wish I had more time to devote to everyone and the site, but that just isn't the case as for now. But anytime that I get a spare hour or so, I try to write and make a few visits. I apologize to everyone. I hope you all understand.

Alocsin makes a great point, as well as others. These are very colorful and the green, blue, purple shades make for some eyecatching tattoos. The sea turtle represents many positive attributes also, so that helps in the popularity.

Sea turtle designs are beautiful with vivid colors. Thank you..Voted way up..

Aurelio Locsin from Orange County, CA on November 01, 2012:

These are certainly very colorful, though I've never seen such a tattoo in real life. I like the one with the pink flowers on the surface, because it's a nice contrast to the blue-green of the turtle. Voting this Up and Beautiful.

Shining Irish Eyes from Upstate, New York on November 01, 2012:

These tattoo's provide some stunning imagery.

I have always been interested in the life path of sea turtles and their amazing trek from birth through their long long years to adult hood.

Bravo on picture selection.

Hi Ricky,

Amazing sea turtle tattoos. I would not have thought they would be one of the most popular, but now I can see why. They are indeed very beautiful and unique, like a woman. I love that last little one, so cute, and kind of mosaic in design.

Your explanations are always so very interesting and detailed dear one.

Voted Way Up and sharing

God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper
