    I was 18 and begged my mom to let me get it

    for my birthday (I was going to get it anyway but it would make the aftermath easier to deal with - family hates tattoos and piercings), I got a Gemini sign on my back right shoulder. Absolutely love it and I'm getting a lot more.

    Easing Going

    My first tattoo was sort of on a whim. I had just read Alexander Pushkin's "Queen of Spades". I was over 18, so age didn't matter.  I was in a college world literature class. I had gone to the tattoo parlor previously for other body modifications, mostly piercings. At the...

    How Could I Forget?

    I Got In In Texas

    I was in the army. No one put me up to it and I wasn't drunk. It's a quarter sleeve of a custom job I call The Tree Of Death. It was inspired by a picture I found of the Tree Of Knowlege. I turned it into an evil creature. It really turned out beautiful.

    And Probably My Last!!!

    All my life I wanted a tattoo.  My Uncle Ray had a hula girl tat on his leg and he could make her dance.  Every time we went to the beach with my cousin I would beg Uncle Ray to make her dance (much to the chagrin of my mother) and he always laughed and made her hula for me...

    I vividly remember my first tattoo. I was 13 years old and my boyfriends older brother was a tattoo artist. It was the beginning of my "rebellious" years, that have never seemed to come to and end. So I looked through stacks of flash while sitting in a chair in the tattoo studio...
