Tattoos: Bringing a Family Together

tattoo*Edit: I have removed my tattoo picture because I really don’t want it to become someone elses tattoo as well.* Observe to the left, my back five and a half years ago. Feel free to ignore the one tan line on my left shoulder and the fact that I was ten pounds heavier than today. Not one single person other than me on this Earth has that angel, he is mine and only mine which is why I never share pictures but for a brief moment I thought it would be fun to share a little of me with you. You who know me as the sweet English girl 😀

I am sweet and I am polite and nice and most days happy but I also happen to be tattooed. One of my brothers and my sister are also tattooed. The majority of my aunts and uncles are also inked, as are their sons and daughters – my fifteen cousins. While some of us have small dime size tattoos there are some of us who went bigger but we are still brought together by our love of ink. Even my dear nana wanted a tattoo of my grandad’s name after he passed away. My dad, however, is still toying with the idea and my mom…well she has enough of needles with her daily MS shots so I doubt she’ll be in for the inking tradition.

Answers to the questions that are usually asked:
-The Chinese characters stand for “brothers” and “love” and are the tattoo I regret and wish to have removed or covered up, they were there prior to my angel tattoo. Yes boys and girls you should ALWAYS have your tattoo idea in place for many many months beforehand.
-Yes, I do have other tattoos but they are all on my back.
-Yes, I do want more but most likely the next piece will be a coverup of my Chinese characters.
-My first tattoo was when I was eighteen and was the trusty “tramp stamp”.
-My angel tattoo took almost five hours, I sat for the entire thing in one sitting.
-No, I didn’t take pain killers or other drugs but yes I did turn green at one point.
-Yes, it hurt. All tattoos hurt and anyone who tells you differently is a big fat liar, it’s all a matter of how much it hurts.
– Expensive.

    I LOVE IT!! Absolutely gorgeous my friend..I love the angel and the symbols, they really go together in my opinion. I wanted to do symbols similar like this for my kids, so the “love” one would be perfect for me. I am inked too…sigh…my color is fading so I will need a touch up, but only after I lose the rest of my weight. lol

    You must show more of your ink…I am totally swooning! This is actually one of my MM questions that I submitted too.

      I waited until I’d lost 30lbs before my angel and I was glad I did because it gave me something to hold out for and look forward to. It’s all about the mini goals!

    WOW – that is awesome – puts my tiny little heart with wings to shame – All I can think is that must have really hurt though!

      LOL Mellisa everyone I know has meaning behind their tattoos, it’s not the size that counts but the meaning behind it 🙂
