    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...

    For my 16th birthday my dad asked me what I

    wanted, he is a man of many tattoos, so I asked him if I could get one. I got music notes on my right foot. My 17th birthday just passed and I got another one. It's a butterfly, about the size of a baseball, that is colored like a watercolor painting. It's on my left shoulder...

    Got tattoo number two done Saturday to

    represent my dog who passed away. He was 15 years old. I got his real foot print traced on my foot with a quote that says "We only part to meet again." You can't really read the quote in this picture "cause this picture was taken the day it was done.

    You look at me different because I'm a sweet face with art in the wrong place. You cast your eyes aside and judge what I am because of my design, my collaboration, my choice. 'She can't possibly be smiling that way.' 'They wind up her arms and cover her hands.' 'She's imprinted...
