    Uh Oh

    My daughter said that getting a tattoo on the top of the foot didn't hurt. She sat there completely still the whole time and was joking around with the other tattoo artist and laughing while getting her tattoo. She's already talking about her next one. I on the other hand...

    My Tattoo

    My tattoo is my daughters baby feet... This tattoo has a very special meaning, it took me 2 years after she passed to have the nerve to get it.. Now I can't wait to get my next one!!! :-)

    I have three tattoos

    and I REALLY want to get my fourth, a small anchor on my ankle. This is my biggest and favorite one, a Japanese koi for my dad.

    I've had a tattoo for about a year

    and my grandmother, whom I see just about everyday, still doesn't know about it. It's king of tearing me up inside.

    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.

    My second tattoo. It means "never despair" in

    Latin. It only took an hour to finish but it hurt like a *****, haha. Maybe I'm just a wimp or my ribs protrude more than average but damn, it sucked. I love the outcome though. I can't wait for another!!

    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 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.

    I have three tattoos.

    One on each shoulder and one on my lower back (I know, I know...). Each has meaning though, and each is very special to me.

    Make Sure It Means Something

    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!

    Finally after a year I have an appointment set
