Well, time for a different kind of post now summer is here I wear strappy tops and my tattoos are in full view. I get some disapproving looks and some lovely comments, in case you are reading this and didn’t know I am a woman.
I am heavily covered in tattoo’s, well in some peoples eyes that is how they see me. In my eyes they are part of me so I do not really register them anymore. I have a few select ones..well OK more than a few. Let’s list I have a Buddha on a lotus flower sitting against a cherry blossom tree on my back, An Autism ribbon on my right upper arm, and a lizard amongst some flowers on my lower left inner arm close to the wrist. All of them I thought about carefully before getting. I also have a half sleeve which goes across onto my shoulder/upper chest, its classy in my eyes, I have Quan Yin who is the goddess of healing surrounded by an Asian dragon amongst waves. At the base it has a pentagram made to look like part of a flower attached at the sides by sorta vines. A lotus flower on waves on my shoulder/chest all joined together by clouds butterflies and cherry blossoms all in bright colours. All of my tattoos have colour, I am a colourful person and like to reflect this.
One thing i will say is Tattoo’s are addictive, something about the dragging of needles and the satisfaction of what you get afterwards.
I have spent hours getting inked, my half sleeve/chest piece took 14 hours to complete that was split into 2 day sittings 7 hours each, my back took 5 hours, my lizard was 2 hrs and my ribbon was 2 and a bit. I now have another tattoo booked in for the 1st July. My lower inner right forearm, hopefully it will be completed in 3 hrs. One thing I will say is there is a reason behind every single tattoo I have. They are all custom for me. The latest one is no different it too has a reason for being. So whether you hate tattooed women or love getting tattooed be great to hear your views.
