I Have Tattoos

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 29,664 People

    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 Cant Wait!

    I cant wait to get my first tattoo. I have plenty of friends who have them and they all look great. I have a couple of ideas of different tats and placements but I haven't yet decided on which one to get for my first

    When a guy gets a tattoo: "Looks good

    mate" When a girl gets a tattoo: "Lol does it even have a meaning?" "She's just following the crowd" "She's gonna regret that" "Ew it's too big" "It doesn't suit her" "Tattoos look weird on women" "She just wants attention" SHUT UP you judgemental fools. Live your own life...

    And most people have no idea!

    I work in a very professional field which requires me to cover them up. I uphold my professional demeanor well but part of me wants to show them off!

    I'm thinking about getting a full back piece.

    Going to go to the tattoo shop tomorrow and see what the artist says. I want angel wings that go around the two back tats I already have.

    I got this beaut about 7 months ago

    and I'm not sure if it looks done or not. Should I get my tattoo coloured in or should I leave it black and white? Maybe more shading? Tattoo enthusiasts, help please!

    I GOT MY FIRST TATTOO!

    !! Yes, I caught the bug. I already know what my next one will be. I got the constellation Leo on my neck, it was EXTREMELY painful. It was however, also worth it!! I love art, and I can't wait to continue sharing the love with my body.

    Make Sure It Means Something

    I love tattoos. I got my first at the age of 18 when they weren't as socially acceptable and have gotten others throughout the years. I love the freedom of expression they provide and the ability to define myself as an individual. I have designed several myself and the all...

    I only have one tattoo.

    I plan on getting another one with my boyfriend. And then maybe another with my best friend. I got my first one on my 18th birthday. It wasn't as bad as people make it seem.

    Well actually only one

    but it's a really big one, I guess 25 cm by 8 cm. And the actual thing is, my parents still don't know about it. I couldn't tell them because they wouldn't get it, they're strict into religion. But yeah, it has almost been a year ago, april 2014, and I really want more tatts...

    I have two. A small one on my right shoulder

    and a huge piece covering the left lower half of my torso. I love them both. They each represent a rite of passage in my life.

    I've finally decided what my next ink will be!

    I'm going to continue working on the random pieces that will eventually make up my 1/4 sleeve. So, adding to the Fable 3 Guild symbol on my upper left arm, and the word Nevermore in the shape of a raven on my left shoulder, I'm going to add the chemical structure of oxytocin...

    So I've been itching to get new ink lately.

    Stuck between either adding to my music notes for my 3/4 sleeve. Or adding the anti possession symbol from supernatural. Good news is that I'm planning getting ink with my tax return, and that my favorite artist finally got another shop. Cannot wait till I get to add to my...
