The tattoo that i’ve wanted since I was 12. It already means so much to me. To remind me to keep going, and to remind me what I have been through… 11 months ago
Ohmygosh! I’m so happy. Not with the tattoo itself, it’s a simple design on the back of my neck, a treble and bass clef shaped as a heart, nothing big. I’m just happy with the step forward I’ve made.
Being an artist and having been interested in the tattoo world for some years, regularly attending tattoo festivals, hanging at parlours, apprenticing, etc it was about time I got some ink done on me. I had always been nervous because I have a needle anxiety and whilst I can watch other people get inked no problem, the thought of it being done on myself made me faint. I know, such a baby.
So I grit my teeth last night and went for it, imagining I would be a wuss and faint or cry or ask for the guy to stop every five seconds, but honestly it felt like I was getting a rough massage – I was falling asleep towards the end. Now I just need to focus on taking good care of it until it heals. Looking forward to future ink! :D 13 months ago
I know what I am getting: an ‘om’ symbol on my ankle :) I need to figure out the exact placement of it and size, as well as save up money for it.
I have always contemplated getting an om symbol for what it stands for and for my spirituality. About 2-3 months ago I started living a different lifestyle: a much healthier lifestyle. Now I have achieved a healthy mind body and soul and am so happy with myself every day and proud of the woman I am becoming. When I reach my final goal weight of 135 and maintain it for 2 weeks, I can get this tattoo as a reward to myself and as a remidner to always stay happy and healthy. It is a reminder not only to take a second for clarity and recconect with the universe but just to be well and achieve inner peace every day. I think I will hoefully be getting it around May 5th :) 14 months ago
I am halfway in the three weeks of consideration of a motive. If i still want it then, i am getting my armed inked this fall. Money will be a factor i have to choose between this and taking a trip to Amsterdam. 22 months ago
For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to get a tattoo; but, I could never decide on what design I desired or its placement. But, finally, I have made my decision… and it feels right! And, now, I want more than one tattoo—I want three!
1. Chinese symbols for strength & courage, inner left wrist
2. Butterfly with wings folded in, right shoulder
3. Phoenix, lower back
I don’t have any particular order in which I would like to get them. I would just like to lose some weight before I get the one on my shoulder and lower back. And, more important to the hold up on getting my first one is my lack of money. So, as soon as my budget and wallet can sustain this expense, I will be tatted!

I was supposed to have my appointment to get my first tattoo in a couple of hours, but the artist just called my husband to let him know that he had to cancel all of his appointments for today. Haven’t you heard? There’s like 2 feet of snow on the ground! This guy lives in the middle of the woods, so he can’t get out and go to the tattoo parlor. I’m totally not upset and he’s also giving me a discount for the work done, which is great because he’s one of the best artists in NJ. Yippeeeee!
Hopefully he’ll let me schedule an appointment at his house instead of the shop because I don’t want my first tattoo experience to be around people that act like they’re too cool for the room. 2 years ago
