I got my first tattoo when I was 16, a star on my wrist. I had been on at my mum for weeks about getting one and the day I came home with my GCSE results she finally agreed to it, She jokes now I had a star because I didn’t get an A* (Although I didn’t do too bad). I didn’t get my next one until I was 18 and I have had at least one a year since then (If you don’t count the pregnant year haha).
So my next one was the day after my 18th birthday, the word Desiderata which means desire happiness in latin but is also a poem my Great Nana and great Auntie Joan loved and actually had read out at her funeral. If i remember correctly (as my tattoo timeline is slightly blurry) I had my wrist and neck tattoo on the same day, Imagine (Neck) firstly I love the John Lennon song and secondly because I pretty much live in an imaginary world or at least I wish I did sometimes. Then the one around my wrist is purely just a quote I found and loved which I thought would fit perfectly with my star.
Pictures taken in 2014 when having my serendipity and flower tattoo.
The flower tattoo my little sister drew on me when she was 9, this girl means the world to me and is one of my favourite tattoos. Another important tattoo to me is my tiny heart on my right hand which I have matching with my beautiful best friend.
Serendipity on my inner arm, Im a complete believer in Serendipity, everything definitely happens for a reason and then my little shamrock is for my little Irish grandpa.
So in 2014 my best friend Chelsey and I went to a Blondie gig and I have always said that if I ever met Debbie Harry or Marilyn Monroe Id get their signature tattooed (Yes I know my Marilyn signature is never going to happen) But the Debbie one did! So I had to be true to my word and sure as shit I was and I don’t regret it one bit! Apart from Chelsey’s looks more like her signature, Deb kinda fucked mine up lol.
I have a few more I.E The friends theme lyrics on my foot which my beautiful cousin and I both have on our feet but unfortunately mine is extremely blurry due to my wrinkly feet haha.
Im definitely in the market for more, I want a H for my little man some where and I would also like some kind of wild flower some where too, trouble is I like having tattoos that you can see and that aren’t covered constantly which means my arms are going to be covered before I know it haha.
