    I never knew my mother growing up and was forced to rely on the stories I was told about her as a way of "knowing" her. When I sought her out to be a part of my life, I found out she had died in 1991 due to medical complications from a multiple gunshot wound she suffered. Along...

    I have a few tattoos.

    I love mine. I have them for personal reasons. Reasons only significant to me, they are personal but not religious. And not typical girly ones. In not that kinda girl.

    I got my first tattoo yesterday

    and I love it so much. The quote means you shouldn't let the bad things that you did in the past effect what you could do in the future. It was also said by the most incredible person and I love them so much.

    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 :).

    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.)    ...

    When a guy gets a tattoo: "Looks good

    Ok, more like A tattoo,

    but I want more. My tattoo says "life is a balance between holding on and letting go" it's mostly about my family because though I love them so dearly, I have to let go of it because they don't love me for who I am. It originally was about a miscarriage I had, but it actually...
