The design and themes of my tattoos: I like my tattoos to be bold, but I still want them to be feminine and beautiful. I love looking at my body as a piece of art and want my tattoos to represent that in a bold way.
More specifics about my tattoo: As corny as it sounds, I love having meanings behind my tattoos - and I want my tattoos to tell my life story as I go on.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My left rib tattoo says "We often delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely acknowledge the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty" with a butterfly/spider insect. My artist did an absolutely amazing job on this tattoo and I am constantly admiring the clean lines and detail that she put in this piece.
It reminds me of the emotional and physical challenges I have gone through in the last couple years were not just filled with pain or anger, but reminds me that all the struggling turned me into the person I am today, someone who I am pretty damn proud of.
My next tattoo: Although I have dozens of odeas swirling in my head my next tattoo that really stands out is a sleeve idea. My dog inspired this tattoo, which is you read my profile you'll understand she's my tonto. Although the jump to a sleeve from my previous tattoos is a huge step - I really want a piece of artwork that flows and makes a statement. It would involve a Chinese theme with cherry blossoms and a text that reads, "A girl worth fighting for". The specific and look is still being worked out in my head but it's the front runner for sure.
