    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.

    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 am getting my third tattoo very soon.

    Was waiting for the income tax return to arrive and it has. Getting a red poppy flower on my arm in memory of my dad. He loved those flowers and had them planted in the yard. Every time I look at one I think of him.

    These are my two tattoos.

    ... The hands one was done in 2012 and the swords were done on Friday. They both have meaning to them, one more than the other though... What do you's think?

    I have 2. Both were gifts from my mother.

    The first is on my lower back. Over here we call it a Santa Cruz license plate. I got that when I was 18 and it was inked by the same man that did one of my mothers tattoos when she was 20 years old. It is Hawaiian ivy and hibiscus flowers. The artist had a very heavy hand and...

    I've got one tattoo on the back of my neck,

    my dad's hands (in a preying style) with my surname underneath it. And I'm getting another tattoo on Friday (2sleeps) getting it on my ribs! My tattoos mean something to me and the one of my dad's hands actually helped me forgive him and move on

    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...
