I Love Tattoos

    Today is tattoo day - I have a session every

    month to add to, finish or start something. It's my escape, my therapy and I love having an artist use me as their media for expression - it's amazing!

    I want big tattoos on my thighs.

    but recently I've been wanting to get a small noose/Slipknot behind my back ear... Because one I like stuff like that. I love slipknot (the band) and I just like the look of nooses. But idk... Haha. I turn 17 in less than 3 month.

    Irony

    I have a friend at work who is what I call a "girly girl". She is always in style and had never been seen without make up. She wears skirts a touch too short to show off her shapely legs (they are stunning) and her sweaters are of the deeeeep V variety. She is a lovely person in...

    There is just something cool about tattoo's,

    I wanna know what's behind them, where they got the ink done if I like them, it's all fascinating. Most of all though, I love my tattoos. They're precious to me, meaningful, and long dreamed of too. Who knows what will be next.

    I got my first tattoo

    as a gift from my dad for my seventeenth birthday. He told me to get something small to start off so I got a plain, black peace sign on my chest. (I decided on my chest because I dislike the big, ornate, full-chest tattoos that a lot of guys get). I want to get more tattoos...

    I finally managed to overcome my fear of

    needles long enough to get my first tattoo last week. I have always loved the history and idea behind the dream catcher. They are displayed prominently in my home, and both my boys had them for years on their rooms. It's a tradition and important symbol of my Native American...

    I'm definitely a fan of tattoos,

    I actually have one on my wrist of an infinity sign and plan on getting another very soon. People tend to judge others with tattoos but the thing is tattoos don't defy who you are, they actually show individually. I've gotten told many times that I'm a "bad person" because I...

    I've ruled out getting a tattoo on my ribs,

    so now I'm torn between getting my quote tattoo along my collarbone or on the back of my shoulder. Thoughts?

    No offense, but I love

    when a person's tattoos tell stories instead of just random things or trends.

    I love the idea of self expression on yourself.

    It's almost like your non verbally telling people that you don't give a **** to show them who you truly are...:)

    I'm getting my first soon.

    The word strength spelled out in waves just low enough that my underwear can cover it.

    Not even because I have 2 small ones

    but because my boyfriend has some and my god is he hot. They look so good and they are works of art on the body. Some people hang art in their homes, others wear art.

    5pm appointment tomorrow

    for Tat #6. Can't wait to feel that pleasurable pain. Love the way my tattoos express who I am and how I'm feeling. A lot more to complete my half sleeve.

    I met with my mom today

    and showed her the new tattoo I got yesterday (there's a picture in another experience I posted). My mom has always been okay with my tattoos, so of course she loved it. The thing that really shocked me, though, is that she mentioned she had been thinking about getting one...

    I love tattoos, I think they're

    so beautiful. This is going to be my second tattoo, I want it across my ribs on the right side of my body. It means 'You must go backwards before you can go forwards' I've had a lot of tough times lately and always feel like I'm going backwards. I hope this shoots me in the...
