My First Time

Like any teenager, when I hit the age of 14/15 I began to think, "Wouldn't it be AWESOME if I had a tattoo?" And, of course, like any teenager my friend agreed. She was an artist and quickly scribbled up some ideas for the both of us, and the next day we were off on a hunt to see where we could get these beauties done; needless to say, it didn't happen. We were not only broke, but most places wouldn't do anything until we are 18. I don't really mind – looking back on it, I'd have been seriously ... read more

First tattoo

Ever since I can remember, tattoos and piercings have been a part of my life. My parents used to keep a Fox's biscuit tin on top of a bookcase full of plugs and metal stretchers and pliers. The tin used to scare me till I hit 13 and stretched my own ear, to 2.4mm. I guess that was my first experience with this sorta thing. Hey. I'm Jenn. I'm 17. I have fake 4mm plugs in both lobes, a right snakebite and a gorgeous new tattoo! I don't know what possessed me to finally go and do it, reallyy. Maybe ... read more

Best wrist tattoo ever

I had been planning on getting another tattoo for a while, so I spoke to my friend and said what I wanted in the design and after a while of her mucking around with designs she emailed me the perfect picture. I then got around to booking the appointment. I made sure that I booked the appointment when I had a week off work so I could give it time to heal. After looking around at sites on the internet I stumbled across Jack's Tattoo Studio in Romford and after emailing them for a quote I knew that was the ... read more

Small

When I finely came of official tattoo age (18 here in Sweden), I had realized that deciding a tattoo design wouldn't be that easy...obviously. I'd been changing taste, placement and design almost on a yearly basis, sometimes as often as every other day. So not wanting to end up with something I would regret a month later, I decided to wait until one design had stuck it's place for at least a year. This did not seem to want to happen, so 2 years later, still with this in my mind, I went ahead and made my first tattoo on ... read more

Prettiest tattoo in the morgue.

What better way to represent a sport that let me beat up girls for free? I guess I shouldn't say it was free. Joining roller derby did come with a price. I had to sweat my ass off and get yelled at by someone old enough to be my mom twice a week. I had to dress up like a zombie once a month and cover my pretty face with fake blood. I had to willingly let these insane, highly aggressive women attack me and hope I didn't break a bone in the process. In the end I guess you ... read more

My first tattoo, boyfriends name

I've been with my boyfriend for almost 2 years now. Recently there has been a couple of tattoo parties thrown at my house and all i could do was watch everyone's face in pain as they got their beautiful piece of art, on their bodies. I thought long and hard to myself, and made a promise to never get a tattoo until im way older because of the pain that I saw in others faces. I was scared no doubt. And the noise of the machine was intimidating. I love my boyfriend with all my heart and he is an ... read more

A baby rib-spider

I was actually just 14 when I had my first tattoo, just over 9 months ago. However I had had the idea many months before that even, which is quite a bit ambitious for a year 9. The idea was stolen from a friend, who had a legitimate and charming plan to get a tattoo of an American eagle on her thigh, to celebrate her mother's heritage. Not to be outdone, I decided to get a tattoo also. The next step was to decide on what. This was very important to me, because despite being ridiculously stupid for wanting a ... read more

Just another freak, in the freak kingdom (First tattoo experience)

This past weekend, I got my first tattoo. I've been very into piercings lately. I got my first a few years ago and have slowly been accumulating them ever since. I had always wanted a tattoo, but never had the money or a design I was happy with. So instead I let piercings be my main modification outlet. They're relatively inexpensive and impermanent. No big deal. The decision to get my first tattoo was an easy one. I had planned out a gorgeous chest piece, consisting of two rabbits (one on either side of my chest.) I had planned for ... read more

"Finally, a tattoo with some thought!" - The story of my fourth tattoo.

I don't know if you've ever had an idea for a tattoo wake you up out of your sleep, but that's exactly what happened to me. It was about five months after I'd gotten my third tattoo when the bug started to bite again: that gnawing feeling in the back of my mind that I was going to come up with a design that I was absolutely going to have to have needled into my skin. That feeling stayed with me for a good long time until, finally, at 3:30 in the morning, it woke me up out of my ... read more

Colorful Stars

To start off with, I have been immersed in tattoos since I was a little kid. My mom had one on her back, her younger brother on his hand, and her older brother, well he had them everywhere. Even my moms step dad was covered in old style army tattoos. Now that is just my moms side of the family. My dads almost all the men, except him have at least one. Even my grandmother has one on her arm and chest. So just speaking tattoos have never seemed unnatural to me, and I always knew I would get one ... read more
