    I Love My Tattoo's

    My first tattoo-ing took place in the kitchen of a man who's business had went under due to lack of funds. Needless to say, this wasn't the safest idea. In fact, looking back at it, I would say it was downright stupid! Who knows what other things he could have been shut down for...

    Last night we watched Surrogates. Movies like that, in which people people leave their broken human bodies and go run around, are always pretty emotionally intense for me. Since I've seen Avatar, I always thought I'd love to switch bodies and never come back to this one. Last...

    I got one tonight and I absolutely love it!

    It's just what I wanted and it's so cute but so very simple! Although I don't want another one for quite a while.

    Getting A Tattoo 101: 1) THINK about the

    consequences of having something PERMANENTLY marked on your body. 2) THINK about the tattoo's meaning for you, and if it will remain true for you for the rest of your life. 3) THINK about where you want it put - many employers will not hire people with tattoos that are visible...

    It stings a lot, and it maybe my last tattoo

    ever but I'm completely obsessed with it. It's the constellation of my Zodiac sign Cancer along with the symbol on the side. I only paid $17, which is hella cheap and worth it in my opinion. The only thing is that I did choose to put it on my hand and I'm not sure what kind of...

    My first tattoo is a small feather located on

    my right hip with "One Day I'll Fly Away" draped over it. It entails spiritually meaning and also alludes to my battle with anxiety.

    it's an american traditional style

    but only linework. It's a tancho koi fish. I thought it was an impulse but when I remembered the Jaguar tattoo you had in almost the same spot on the same arm in almost the exact same style I started to feel sick every time I look at it. I won't let you ruin my artwork anymore...

    This is my cosmetic tattoo.

    It was scary having the needle near my eye but didn't hurt. My brow was accentuated and my eyeliner is tattooed on.

    I just got a tattoo, it's my second

    and it's a pink flower on my wrist and it's about a few inches long and wide. It's very pretty and not offensive or sloppy at all! I am 20 and live with my mom after moving back in for a few months. My mom is super up tight and neurotic so I know she is going to flip out. So how...
