I've always had a passion for tattoos. Getting tattooed has become a hobby/collection for me. It started off with one, sneaking into a tat parlour when I was 16. I never planned on getting many at the time but I just kept adding one here, one there, at first I swore NEVER to get my arms tattooed as I thought it was too butchy looking...that went out the window...but I kept giving myself limitations as the ink progressed yet the boundaries grew further.
As time passed I started to look at my older tattoos and they reminded me of that time in my life. Most of them have a significant connection to my life and experiences. The more I got the more I wanted in order to get further with this picture story book of who I am. I have a story behind each and every one. Some (mostly older ones) are more loosley connected to me ex: a gargoyle on my back just because I like gargoyles and symbolically they watch over you. The newer ones have a deeper connection to me and my life/ people in my life. All of my stuff (save a few old ones) is done by reputable artists. I can't imagine me without them. One question that always puzzles me is when people ask "what is that gonna look like when you're old?" well I guess its gonna look old just like me. If I'm still worried about personal aesthetics in a ripe old age then shoot me please:) because I doubt I'll ever be rich enough to look like some of them stretched out million dollar walking hides...eeesshhh...but I digress, I'm curious to hear about other peoples tattoos and their stories. If you feel comfortable enough please share your tattoos as well. To me skin art is eye candy:) I love seeing the different pieces that people wear:)
here are a few of mine to start
