    Sketch

    I love my sketches, I don't perfect any drawing that I don't care about. Over the years I've created and collected so many pieces of my own work that now that I'm old enough and can afford a tattoo I can't bring myself to choose which sketch to go where.

    I really want a tattoo

    but my parents will disown me if I get a tattoo. So I'll probably secretly get a tattoo when I'm 18. I really don't want a big one, so if I get one, it will be easy to cover.

    I Want A Small Heart On My Wrist :)

    I'm planning to get it because for about 1-2 weeks I've been maintaining a ink heart that I drew on my wrist one day. My grandparents say that it's not good to keep drawing on my skin because I will get ink poisoning so I said "But I love this heart on me! I want to keep drawing...

    Big Decision

    I have thought of getting a tattoo for a long time now. I would like to get a mermaid on a rock in the surf, holding a sword. As if to offer it up to someone as if it is the only thing that could take her life. It means trust and surrender to me. I would like her in a black line...

    I'm Going To Get It When I Can Afford It.

    I already have a few, but there's a few more that I want. One is a snake going up my spine. In a lot of Pagan traditions, snakes represent the goddess, rebirth, and ridding the old for the better new. Below is an example, pretty close to what I want.

    A Permanent Scar, Forever In Remembrance.

    I'm torn between what design to get. I'd reveal my main three choices here, but the last time I showed someone what tattoo I was getting, THEY went and got it. And, furthermore, it meant nothing to them, they just 'liked the design'. Grrr, I'm still pissed off over that >:( One...

    and I have seen it on other people but it doesn't look as good as I imagined, it needs more shading. The tat is around 3000$ so not so many people have it. But would a body tat look good with others?
