    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.

    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.

    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...

    Uh Oh

    My daughter said that getting a tattoo on the top of the foot didn't hurt. She sat there completely still the whole time and was joking around with the other tattoo artist and laughing while getting her tattoo. She's already talking about her next one. I on the other hand...

    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 started getting tattoos

    when I graduated high school. I have also been a tattoo artist since I graduated high school, to my parents dismay. My first tattoo was the start of my left sleeve tattoo. 9 years later, I have my entire stomach, sides, hips, chest, and shoulders. I also have my entire lower...

    I got my first tattoo 30 years ago,

    Make Sure It Means Something

    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...

    For those who read my prior experience story,

    my very first tattoo (a kneeling fantasy knight wielding a sword and shield with the thin blue line on his shield) is now complete. I would say without question that today was far more painful than the first day, as it was longer as well due to all of the shading that needed to...
