my love for tattoos...
I have had my tattoos for about 5 years now. Both have meaning and are a very important part of me. I think the right tattoo can represent a person in such a way that defines them and can even tell a story. I feel that's how mine are.
My first is a star that represents my family - 5 people, 5 points. It's a pretty simple one.
The other are my angel wings. I've always had an infatuation with angels, the other world, and part of spirituality that cannot be explained. I like to feel that there is a greater force watching over me at all times, but on the other hand, wings represent so much more. Flying, feeling free, peace.
Like they say, tattoos are addicting and I cannot wait for another. I have the next 2 planned out.
One is a saying that my Grandma used to tell me all the time and the other will be one that Eric and I get when we move on to the next stage of life.
Here are a few that I've run across and loved.
What do you think of these? What about tattoos in general?
I love them and unfortunately I feel that if someone doesn't like them on me, tough. It's my body and my free will. I've had numerous people tell me that tattoos don't look good on beautiful people and then they kind of turn up their nose. It offends me, but I just kind of shrug and don't say much.
