    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.)    ...

    I GOT MY FIRST TATTOO!

    !! 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.

    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!

    Strength

    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 4 tattoos. I drew two of them myself.

    You can see them in my photo albums. I love the artistic expression that they can bring. I love designing my own tattoos as well. I plan on getting more, but tattoos are expensive.

    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 :).

    Looking to get a three quarters sleeve asap.

    Central theme would be a panda, the rest would be anything relating to the pandas culture eg Asian culture or what it represents (dualism / yin-yang etc). Any suggestions?

    Make Sure It Means Something

    I started getting them right

    Some people get wasted on their 21st birthday,

    I got this tattoo instead. This is my second tattoo, got it around last April/May. I use it as a symbol of my freedom. I've always been tied down by people, mostly family and I'm doing things differently this year. :)

    Hey just thought I'd drop one of the tattoos I

    Who wants get inked? You still have this

    uncertainty over deciding since we are well aware that a tattoo is not just like a new haircut or new shoes. I know my tattoo is here to stay, for the rest of my life, and there is no turning back. So I took that one of the most important decisions of my life.
