When someone decides to get a tattoo, there is almost always a reason behind their decision and their choice of design. They can be everything from something that person enjoys, art that symbolizes something, in honor of loved ones they've lost, the choices go on and on.

We asked our listeners on Facebook to share their tattoos with us and what they mean to them and the response was overwhelming. We had hundreds of photos and we'd love to share them all, but we'd be here for weeks putting them all together. So instead, we're sharing a handful of them with you every few weeks.

Here are 10 photos of tattoos we selected from the people who shared them with us and their explanation of what they mean to them.
