    I got a new tattoo a few weeks ago.

    I love it and it has great meaning. It reminds me how I have all the power to do what I need to do in my life.

    I was going to wait until I graduated high

    school, but I couldn't wait. I was driving around and past a tattoo place. I went in. I got roman numerals of dates below my right collarbone. Cant wait till I get some more.

    just got home from finishing my sleeve.

    I've been working on it since the end of October. My last session lasted an hour and a half and it was just some color getting added to my forearm. I'm finally done with my sleeve!! :) time to think of some more tattoos and locations

    My First Tattoo

    I took my first tattoo today! I chose to let a young guy who have only been tattooing for 2 months take mine, I knew him and I got it for free. All this was in a professional tattoo shop. My tattoo is really good if you mind thinking about how short amount of time this guy have...

    As a belated birthday gift to myself,

    I went and had a new tattoo done to commemorate my 40th. I keep telling myself if I say it enough (40) that eventually I'll get over it. Anyway, what you guys think

    Always Remember The Light

    I'll always struggled with depression, for as long as I can remember. I decided a while ago that I wanted a tattoo to show my strength and recovery, but I could never decide what.  I thought about a ship on my waist for a while because "You are the captain of your own ship, and...

    I won't say what, just in case anybody I know

    lurks on this site, but I got it done on my ribs. I've shed 45 pounds, and I considered it as a present to myself for all my hard work. The guy, who specialises in names and small tattoos, did a fantastic job. He grossly undercharged me, as he underestimated the time it would...

    So I probably can't really say "I just got a new tattoo" for too much longer (how long does something like that stay new, anyway?), but it's my first, and I love it. It's very simple, an odd conglomeration of symbols (a couple of Norse runes and the like), tattooed in...

    I got a new tattoo today.

    I don't know why. When I woke up today, I had no idea that I would. I went to school like every other week. But I saw a picture online of this pretty girl who looked really carefree and I thought I need to stop worrying so much. I worry to the point of exhaustion sometimes, in...

    My Very First!

    I've toyed with the idea of getting a tattoo for quite some time. Recently, though, I decided I should stop dreaming about it and just do it - on my foot. I made an appointment at a shop in Hawaii (where I was on vacation recently) for the day before we left. I pretty much...
