My First Tattoo
I got my first tattoo
when I was 18 years old. It is on my ankle. A picture of my zodiac sign, Taurus (the bull) with a shooting star through it. I got my second tattoo on an impulse. I was on my way to work when I heard that it was John Lennon's birthday. He is one of my idols, my hero. I ended up going into work late that day because I got a tattoo with a peace sign on my neck and the word "Imagine" over it. I don't regret it; however, I do wish I would have picked a more concealed area. I'll have to wear my hair down in all professional settings if and when I advance in my career, because we all know tattoos aren't accepted by all. My third tattoo, and last is of a phoenix bird on my back. I love River Phoenix, the actor and musician. He was amazing, active in trying to save animals and help spread love and peace, the appreciation of music. He wasn't well himself, and died of a drug overdose. It is just a shame, because he was a brilliant young soul.
