    I have two. A small one on my right shoulder

    and a huge piece covering the left lower half of my torso. I love them both. They each represent a rite of passage in my life.

    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!

    So I've been itching to get new ink lately.

    Stuck between either adding to my music notes for my 3/4 sleeve. Or adding the anti possession symbol from supernatural. Good news is that I'm planning getting ink with my tax return, and that my favorite artist finally got another shop. Cannot wait till I get to add to my...

    When a guy gets a tattoo: "Looks good

    mate" When a girl gets a tattoo: "Lol does it even have a meaning?" "She's just following the crowd" "She's gonna regret that" "Ew it's too big" "It doesn't suit her" "Tattoos look weird on women" "She just wants attention" SHUT UP you judgemental fools. Live your own life...

    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.

    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.)    ...

    Uh Oh

    I've finally decided what my next ink will be!

    I'm going to continue working on the random pieces that will eventually make up my 1/4 sleeve. So, adding to the Fable 3 Guild symbol on my upper left arm, and the word Nevermore in the shape of a raven on my left shoulder, I'm going to add the chemical structure of oxytocin...

    I only have one tattoo.

    I plan on getting another one with my boyfriend. And then maybe another with my best friend. I got my first one on my 18th birthday. It wasn't as bad as people make it seem.

    The good and The Bad.

    They run over time, mine will be 21 years old and the ink starts to run. So please before you get one, avoid the hands and face/neck. Why you will look old and weird!!!!

    Make Sure It Means Something

    I love tattoos. I got my first at the age of 18 when they weren't as socially acceptable and have gotten others throughout the years. I love the freedom of expression they provide and the ability to define myself as an individual. I have designed several myself and the all...

    I can get tattoos that have no meaning.

    Some people find this crazy, I find that I LOVE art in general and would never be opposed to being a canvas to any artist who'd like to paint a beautiful and/or interesting piece on my skin.

    I have a bad cover-up tattoo on my back.

    The lily and butterfly is well done, but the banner with my ex-husband's name is covered up with a sloppy blue rose. Hopefully I can find someone that I trust that specializes in cover-ups that can cover a bad cover. This is what I want now, but instead of just red, I want...
