So I’ve decided what I want to get and where and a friend told me about an amazing artist who works in the style that I want… So now I just need the money to do it. Sometime soon I will go to the Lust for Life tattoo parlor to ask them how much it will cost so I can save up and book an appointment. 1 day ago

I’m planning to go and get booked in for an appointment for the start of September. I’m hoping this all works out because the waiting list for the artist I want seems to be around two months and I’m going on holiday in mid-August. I get home the day before my birthday and I was planning on ideally getting tattooed that weekend but, knowing me, I’d get sunburnt. And, wanting to get this done as safely as possible, I’m not willing to get a tattoo over a sunburn. I’ve decided the start of September as opposed to some other time because as well as wanting the candy skull I designed (mentioned in an earlier post) I want the lyrics ‘Somewhere weakness is our strength.’ tattooed on my back at the same time. I’m going to see the band live for the third time in mid-September and although I doubt I’ll ever have the chance to meet them, I feel like this would be a good time to honour my love for them and what their music has done and continually does for me on a daily basis, reminding me of how I want to live my life. 4 days ago
Since my last post, I stopped at a random, local shop. $500-$600. I e-mailed a friend of a friend. He said he can do it but would never give me a ballpark figure on the cost. I even called and texted Dave again. No response. My newest thoughts are (1) talk to an artist about getting a tattoo that can be developed into what I rly want but also stand as it’s own tat. It would cost less and ride if I don’t like how the ink looks on my skin. It would become my vision if part 1 goes well. (2) get a simpler tat so I can see how the ink will look. Then suck it up and shell out $500 if the test goes well.
Apparently, I rly want this meaningful image.
I’m about 6 weeks out from my birthday. I’d rly like to have some ink on me by then. 4 days ago
I’ve gone back and forth on getting a tattoo for years. For a long time I was with someone who didn’t want me to, and I was ok with that because I wasn’t in love with any particular design or really had much of an idea for what I wanted.
I’m about to graduate college and go out into the world a single, strong, and clueless adult. I have so much to learn about the real world and I felt that what I needed was something to ground me. Even if I don’t know what I’m doing I know who I am.
That’s what the tattoo will be. It’s a symbol of me, right now, as I am. I’m thinking about getting a rabbit. I’ve always liked rabbits and there are a lot of connections I have to them. They are a symbol of new beginnings, youth, energy and life.
When I have the money I hope to go with my mom because she has always been the perfect mix of a shoulder to cry on and kick in the butt. 1 week ago
I would love a tattoo because they make you look so unique and colourful.
I would also like one because I have stretch marks on my hips because I am not very skinny anymore and it makes me look pretty bad… 1 week ago
