    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...

    If you have tattoos that aren't hidden under

    your clothes, those would be the first thing I'd notice about you. I'll memorize the tattoos but I'll have to try my best to remember you. We could never meet ever again and I'll still remember the tattoos and if we do, i'd recognize those first before recognizing you.

    the idea of tattoos are amazing.

    I think there is something to be said about a person who is so dedicated to a piece of art that they get it drawn on their body permanently. it becomes a part of you and you are so committed to your tattoo, it's like you are not just you anymore, you are you with your tattoo, it...

    I love and have tattoos.

    In fact, I have two of them on my body. One is one my back and one is on my tummy. I was not on drugs or drunk when I had them done. I did them in a silly and funny kind of way. I have a beautiful butterfly on most of my back. The other one was a gesture for my husband to...

    I think they are beautiful,

    most of them, and add to a person's attractiveness. I am really excited about getting my first one, I am 100% sure it's the one I want, even though I'll wait until next year to see if I still want it, then I'll go for it. Of course, living with mom puts a damper on my excitement...

    I bought some temporary tattoos to scratch the

    itch that I can't really scratch right now. I also bought them to see if I liked the placement I had in mind and to see if I liked the way I looked with a tattoo, and I do. I want one even more now...

    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 just got a new tattoo

    and I already hate it. I hate the way it looks next to my other one. And I am obsessing over how I wish the color could be different.

    Looking forward to getting my very first one

    this week, and I've picked out a design and color scheme that speaks to my Native American side. I've wanted tattoos for years but a fear of needles has kept me from getting one. Once I conquer this fear, I'm sure this will be the first of many. Stay tuned....

    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 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 need advice. Does your age matter?

    If so how old do you have to be to get a tattoo? And how much does it hurt? I know it's gonna hurt of course. But I want to hear from an experienced person. I might get a tattoo soon

    This is not a diss on anybody's tattoo (I

    promise) but I think it's really annoying when someone gets a common tattoo (like infinity sign, dream catcher, etc) and makes up some bullshit meaning for it as an excuse just to get it. Like if you just got it because you think it's cool then that's fine, you don't got to lie...

    But I don't love when people ask "but what

    meaning does that have" because 1) It doesn't need a meaning 2) People shouldn't be made to feel less of their tattoo because someone think it needs meaning 3) While all my tattoo ideas follow a basic theme, each one doesn't have a specific meaning. I have always been drawn to...

    I'm really wanting another tattoo recently.

    There are a few I want to get right now but the one burning in my mind waiting to be poked into my skin is the one I wish I would've done as I sat watching my friend get a new tattoo. I'm not usually into the "typical girl" stereotyped tattoos but this one is actually perfectly...

    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...

    No offense, but I love

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

    Tattoos are a beautiful form of expression.

    I have a lot of tattoos, and they all mean something to me. I love everything about getting tattoos- from designing it, to the rush you feel when you are getting it done, to the amazing way it looks when it is all healed up. I only get a tattoo after I've thought long and hard...

    but I love a woman when she has a simple small tattoo especially in specific places such as her neck from behind.
