Krystal Smith's back tattoo in tribute to the Canadian wilderness
CREATURE COMFORTS: Krystal Smith opted for this back tattoo in tribute to the Canadian wilderness.

Loads of people who wouldn't dream of getting a tattoo at home decide to take the plunge on holiday. We asked our readers to share the evidence of their memories made in ink - the good, bad and terribly ugly.

Krystal Smith shares why she decided to submit to the tattooist's needle...  

I fell thoroughly in love with the wilderness in Canada and offered up my back to be a permanent reminder to the two years I spent there.

Thanks to Sarah at Fire Vixen Tattoos in Invermere, British Columbia for being so talented - and gentle!
