    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...

    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...

    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.

    Ink.

    You look at me different because I'm a sweet face with art in the wrong place. You cast your eyes aside and judge what I am because of my design, my collaboration, my choice. 'She can't possibly be smiling that way.' 'They wind up her arms and cover her hands.' 'She's imprinted...

    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?
