    I have two. The first I had done in my early

    20's and is three interconnected rings symbolizing a friendship with two very dear friends. The second was done in my 30's and is a tree frog...I don't know what it means as I had it done in the middle of dropping my basket. I woke up one morning and had it...that's all I know...

    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.)    ...

    The only difference between tattooed people

    and non tattooed people, is that tattooed people won't give a **** you don't have tattoos. Tattoos are the one of the only things you take to the grave. Having tattoos doesn't make you a thug, it's art. Art is about self expression and creativity. Some people hang their art, we...

    I have three tattoos.

    I got my first one when I was 16, and the other 2 when I was 17. The worst part about having tattoos when you're young is when you go to the doctor and some stuck up nurse/doctor says, "Do you regret it yet?" So you just stare at them like they're the biggest idiot on the...

    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...

    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!

    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...

    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

    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...

    Has anyone else tried Tatu-derm

    or similar wound care/derm products? My artist is the only one I've seen in the city using it. It cut my healing time in half and really reduced the pain during that time. No, I'm not selling it or have any connections to any tattoo supply company. I just liked the results and...
