    Got A Tattoo That I Love Despite My Moms Wishes

    it says "what goes around comes around" wrapped around my wrist, in this really cool, horror font, it has dripping thick letters. i get compliments all the time, but from my mom. she is christian and believes inking your body goes against what God wants u to treat ur body like...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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.

    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

    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.
