Rib cage tattoo= P.A.I.N.

So I've been wanting a rib cage tattoo for the longest time. I have done alot of research and came to the conclusion that 99.9% of people say that it hurts like hell. So I was prepared to be a little uncomfortable. (little did I know) I have several tattoos, a big one on my lower back, on my butt, on my foot, and on my hip. I have my nipple pierced (which hurt terribly), home done nose, tounge, rook, and my upper and lower naval. So I've had some painful experiences. After doing some design research I found a ... read more


The idea of my latest tattoos has evolved quite a bit over the last year. I started out wanting some half sleeves but wasn't entirely sure what to get to compliment my personality and body. See, I have very thin and long arms. No matter how much weight I gain or how much I workout, they stay really thin, so I don't have much room to work with on them. My design would have to be small and delicate. I finally settled on the idea of floral sleeves. Yeah they are common but they are very pretty and classic. But ... read more

My first tattoo, better the second time around.

To me my body is a valuable canvas make like the value canvas was given years ago when it was expensive and rare. The only difference is my skin can't recovered and redone. Whatever I chose must stay with me the rest of my life. With this in mind I always wanted to decorate my body with things that had deep meaning for me. It took me years before I figured out in my head what I wanted. I wanted to incorporate stone, arches, flowers and use it to embrace myself. I have no skill at drawing and I really ... read more

My First

Well I've been waiting a long time to get a tattoo, and I decided that the right place to do this was when i just happened to be passing through Thailand on a college trip with friends. During our cross through the country I noticed many shops and so forth but none of them looked legit for what I wanted. They all seemed dedicated to tourist and the like. My idea ever since I was a kid was to get a black panther across the right lower part of my abdomen. It was intended to be an all black panther ... read more

My fan-tastic tattoo

For a while now I've wanted a tattoo. I've doodled at school, re-drawn pictures over and over, and finally settled on a design. I decided on getting an oriental fan which has significance to me because of my past and how I've been brought up. I planned on getting the tattoo at the start of the year but I was hesitant as my parents don't want me to have one. I chose a spot on my lower back just above the back of my hip bone so that i can hide it and only show it when I want. After ... read more

Just a Signature

I'll get this out now: my father is dead. He passed away in March of this year due to liver failure complications. I heard a saying once that, "parents will always mess up their children," and I unfortunately have to agree. Growing up with an abusive alcoholic father for twenty years isn't easy, and I'm sure it wasn't my mother's first choice in terms of father figures. However, we managed; I managed. And no one discussed the matter until it was too late for him. As a teenager I became interested in piercings, stretched piercings, and tattoos. When sixteen hit ... read more

First Tattoo

So I had been toying with the idea of getting a tattoo for a while. I had religiously began watching shows such as Miami Ink, and while I admit they played a big part in inspiring me/egging me on, I definitely was definitely set on getting a tattoo even before that. For my first tattoo, i wanted to keep it simple. I wanted to get something that was meaningful to me, but at the same time, something small and uncomplicated to keep my first tat simple. I have been deeply involved with music all my life, and it is definitely ... read more

Egyptian sleeve progress

So I decided to continue on my black and gray Egyptian themed sleeve. My new addition would be an outline type portrait of King Tut. I was really excited to get this tattoo as I already had two nice sized pieces on my arm. This would just add to the overall coverage on my arm and I was pumped as you might be able to imagine. Alright, let's start this story. It was the morning of my appointment and I was as excited as I could be. Having many a tattoo, I have grown accustomed to the process and flow ... read more

Butterfly Neck Tattoo.. Beautiful!

I had been debating for a while whether or not to get a tattoo on the back of my neck, but I'm really glad I did. I eventually decided on a pretty butterfly :) Nothing too fancy or over the top as I figured it's going to be in a place that will be on show most of the time. I took a while to think about how high up I was going to have it as the profession im in, it could be frowned upon. I decided that I could always cover the tattoo with my hair if need ... read more

A pawprint for all the kitties in my life

I will tell you now, I am indeed a crazy cat lady. Or at least well on my way to getting there. I currently have three lovely kitties. I am actually allergic to them, but take prescription medicine to control the symptoms. A few years ago I decided I wanted to get a tattoo in memory of a specific pet cat of mine, who had passed away. I considered perhaps getting a portrait styled tattoo of him, and researched local realistic and portrait style tattoo artists. As usual, I sat with my idea for some time before taking action on ... read more
