The title may give away what this post is about. I just want to get everyone elses opinion on tattoos?
I'm obsessed with la and Miami ink, I think Kat Von D is amazing.
I've been brought up around people with tattoos, my brother and sister are both covered in them, and my dad has some old army tattoos. So they have always been around. My mom however hates tattoos she lives by the saying that her dad used to say to her 'if god wanted you to be technicolour you would of been born technicolour' all be it that he used to say it to her about makeup, she's taken it and given her own meaning now!
I got my 1st tattoo when I was 16 (I no I was underage) my sister went with me and I got a small red heart on my hip, like the one Kelly Osbourne's had got on the series of the Osbourne's. Thinking back I had put zero thought into it and just wanted one! A year later me and Gareth decided the ultimate mark of dedication was to get our names tattooed on each other, I was 17 and we snook off and get them done!!
Not the brightest trick we ever pulled I must say, when my mom found out a few months later she nearly killed me. In hindsight as much as I love my partner, and as much as I never want to be with another person, I just think the whole name tattoo thing is very Jeremy kyle and very tacky!
We are however talking about having them covered with a lock and key design, but we are still trying to get more ideas for a final piece.
My 3rd tattoo is by far the best and most thought about of them all. Being older I put more thought into it, more research of the tattoo artist, we found a brilliant lady who owns a tattoo shop called Tataholics and she is just brilliant,I took a basic image into her and she drew up and advised as to what she thought would look the best. I ended up with my beautiful feather tattoo and my little dudes name. I choose the feather because all through my pregnancy I kept finding white feathers, they would just be everywhere. I like to believe in angels and like to think the white feathers where my guardian angels watching over me and Harry, and Harry is my little angel so a feather is fitting.
I am however the worlds biggest hypocrite because if my little man came home with a tattoo I would be so sad. Being a mommy, I understand my moms concerns and issues, I was all for the fact 'its my body I'll do what I want with it' but now having Harry I get the fact that, she made my body, and likewise I made Harry's body, and I won't ever stop him doing what he wants but I would be a little sad if he did get a tattoo, especially without telling me like i did.
Have you got any tattoos? What's your opinions on them?
