I’ve talked about my love for tattoos before on my other blog. I believe tattoos are artwork for our bodies. They’re permanent accessories. I have 5 and want so many more. I want to adorn my body with art. Some people think I don’t have enough (or too many depending on who you’re asking) but that’s their opinion and I can respect that tattoos aren’t for them.
I don’t just want a bunch of small tattoos. I’ve already got that. I want quite large ones. By time I’m done I plan on having at least a half sleeve and one that goes from left hip up to my shoulder.
Why all that you ask? Why not? Every tattoo I currently have whether I regret them or not tell a story about a time in my life. I’ve got a lot more stories to tell. Each one is like a page in a book.
Many people ask how I’ll feel when I’m old and my skin wrinkles. I figure every good book has a few wrinkled pages.
As for my family, only two of my kids think I’m crazy. Not because I’m a mother but because they don’t think anyone should have a ton of tattoos. My other kids are totally fine with it. They feel the same way I do, tattoos are a form of self-expression. My husband is cool with it too. Mainly because he knows that I’m gonna do whatever I want to do.
We only live once, why not live as colorful as possible.
Have you ever done anything that other people think is insane?
