    I wrote this story for a paper for school. I don't feel like changing it or shortening it or anything of that manner. You get it as it is. (I did change the very end, when I state how long I've had it. I felt like I could do at least that much.)    ...

    I can get tattoos that have no meaning.

    Some people find this crazy, I find that I LOVE art in general and would never be opposed to being a canvas to any artist who'd like to paint a beautiful and/or interesting piece on my skin.

    I'm onto double figures today!

    , got my latest tattoo and very happy with it!. It's addicting purchasing and drawing out a tattoo, getting it done over the hours.. It's certainly worth it if you have reason for a tattoo or just love a tattoo on your body. How many do you guys have or if none, do you want one...

    I have just gotten my first tattoo.

    It is not really acceptable in my country, esp to the older generation. But I want this tattoo, I hope it will mark an end for my depression.

    Dear tattoo artist, you're amazing!

    I know I can't pay you until Wednesday but that fact that you're like "don't worry, I'll still do you're tattoo today" is AMAZING!

    Make Sure It Means Something
