The other ink








those who know me know I have a couple of tattoos, I don't regret them, in fact I got another today...each one is symbolic to me...
The first one I got is the one on my chest, it is Celtic in style...my little Nan was Irish, it used to be coloured and looked more like the orchid I drew it as a few years ago...now it needs some work to bring it back to it's former glory...mind you most people who see it don't seem to be that interested in the tat but more in what it is on! lol
The next tat I got was the blue rose on my shoulder, my best friend back a few years ago has a similar one...I also had the initials of my then fiance...when we broke up I got the butterfly to cover his initials and to represent my freedom from the abusive relationship.
Last year I was at a point in my life where I was beginning to feel stuck in a rut, so the butterfly on my lower back represents my desire to to be free.
Today I got the initials my sons on my neck in Celtic style...I think tattoos are an addiction and I plan to get more...so who wants to know about my piercings? lol

They are tasteful I don't have any but hey that's my choice or could it be I'm a chicken.

As for piercings - I saw enough being done in the salon thanks in places I would rather not have been privy to.

I like your tats - almost got one myself on several occasions when i was younger - sort of wish I had because it seems unlikely I'll ever do it now that I'm old (ish). Used to have more piercings myself, but nowadays, it's just ears for me. Boring, I am!

If they make you feel good-they are good. My daughter has a lovely celtic knot design on her shoulder - she'd wanted one since being about 14 but nasty Mum wouldn't let her have one!
