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.

I personally have 3 and am itching for a 4th just not sure what or where yet. I think they are a personal decision and if someone wants to judge you on that that is their problem!

Nice! I've been itching to get inked on both of my wrists, but haven't taken the plunge yet. Hopefully I will soon. I also agree that it should be of no concern whether or not someone likes your tattoos - they're meant for you anyway. :)

I have 5 and I would love to get more work done. 1 needs a full coverup because the quality sucked but it was a $50 tat so you get what you pay for. The other one needs a partial cover because part of the design didn't come out the way I wanted it. I love the script work in the wild hearts can't be tamed one.

I like that your tattoos have meaning to you. I know of people who have just gotten them because they were neat (kermit the frog for example). I think as long as they have meaning to you, and you love them, then that's what matters.

Unfortunately, my parents do not want my sister or I to get them. They have threatened our inheritance over it! I think one day I may get a simple one with a quote like the "love" one or the "just be" one... We'll see...

PS. You are beautiful! Tattoos and all! xoxo

I love the tattoo page on pinterest, it's really addicting. I'm still deciding on my first. I love the stories behind yours (and your tattoos!). Really pretty, and classic!

I love tattoos. I have 6! I want an anchor, so I definitely like that one. I also like the cursive writing. I like that font!
