    I love my tattoos and they are

    so personal and so dear to me. I see myself as a blank canvas and all of my tattoos are important stories that have made an impact on my life. All my tattoos make me who I am today, the good and the bad.

    them. Each tattoo symbolises an important time in my life which I don't want to forget-- life lessons perhaps? :-)

    I absolutely love TATTOOS.

    They are my life, and I do have a meaning for them. I have currently two tattoos and debating on a third one. My first tattoo is a butterfly, and the second one is a music note with a red rose :). P.S. - I'll show you a picture if you like to see how it look like :).

    !! 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.
