Tattoos. I think I’ve wanted one since pretty much I can remember. I know what I want too…I know that it would make me happy but I just haven’t been able to do it. I worry too much what people think. Like my mom, my sister, and other family and friends of the family that are older. It’s hard because the opinion on tattoos has shifted so much within the last 15 years or so, but there is still a huge disparity between the older generations’ opinions and the younger generations’ view on them.
There is a kind of beauty to being a blank slate, especially since it is becoming increasingly rare, but the lure of the needle is just as alluring.
Pros: I would have something meaningful on me forever. When I need to be reminded of something I can just look down and there it is.
Cons: If I ever have kids, what would they think? Should I even care about that? What will it look like when I’m old? Also, should I even care about that?
It doesn’t help that I’ve been watching L.A. Ink lately…that show makes me want to get full sleeves :P
I feel very conflicted about this and would love to hear what you ppl think…
