    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...

    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.

    Saw the picture above online about 3 years ago.

    On April 2014, I decided to get it on my upper spine. I have another tattoo on my wrist. Nothing too out there, just 3 small stars outlined. Honestly, I forget I have them about 99% of the time haha

    I have one basically on my crotch

    because it's below my lower belly, my first tattoo. My shorts and underwear were down to my knees while this guy, way over 6 foot, had his face in there while tattooing me haha. It honestly wasn't so bad until he got to the sensitive parts like right near my lower belly and then...

    I have a new-ish tattoo behind my left ear.

    It isn't usually something people notice as I have long hair but it has been incredibly hot here this past week so I've been wearing my hair up. A couple of days ago I was in a supermarket and a gentleman was staring at me. I was about to ask him if he was okay when he said to...

    Just One

    I got a tattoo on my eighteenth birthday, you know, sort of as a right of passage with my cousin. I won't say exactly where it is, but let's just say I got it somewhere that my parents wouldn't find it. It's nothing big, haha I didn't think I had the pain tolerance for anything...

    I have ten, but most are small

    so they are easy to hide. My biggest and most favorite are branches with autumn leaves that snake up my back and peek over my shoulder. I love how it peeks out of most shirts slightly by my neck.

    I waited until I was 50 years old to get my

    first tattoo. I did not go half way and get a small tattoo for my first. I got a back piece of a dragon.
