“My body is my journal, and my tattoos are my story.”
Recently, I got tattoos on the fingers of my right hand. One is a pentacle and the other is a quarter moon. I posted the pic on a witchcraft group I was in and it was overwhelmed with likes. (I love when that happens!) Anyway, one woman commented asking if they were drawn on or if it was a tattoo. I should mention that she is in an older generation than myself. Once I told her that it was a tattoo she got so excited. She explained in her day it was unacceptable for women to get tattoos, never mind ones on their fingers.
I want to be clear here, I am not a feminist, (I know, haters gonna hate), but I do believe in equal rights. There is no reason that tattoos should be acceptable on men and not on woman. That is just crazy talk. I consider myself lucky to be living in a generation where this is mostly not the case.
So, in case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am a tattooed girl. I have gotten more expressive with them over the past year or so. They are becoming more visible, a big step in the workforce, but the world is becoming more accepting of tattoos at a rapid rate.
I love every single one of my tattoos and each one has a special meaning just for me. I am not really one of those girls to pick a tattoo out of a book. I like to bring the artist an idea and let them run with it. They are the artist afterall, they know better than me.
I am one that finds a tattoo artist via word of mouth. (Is there really any other way?) I will stay with them for awhile, then someone else with give me a recommendation and I will see that person for awhile. This time, my friend Robbie (Check out his blog! My Weak Started on Sadder Days), sent me to his friend and awesome tattoo artist TJ at Null Tattoo. He is amazing! I give him an idea and he perfectly matches what is in my head. Check him out on Facebook & Instagram. I highly recommend him. (He even lets me listen to Ed Sheeran!)
