Lately, and almost everyday, there is always some controversy over people with tattoos, or someone thinking about getting ink’d. Most reasons why people want to get a tattoo, is to either remind them of a loved one, something that has great meaning to them, or mainly just because they like it and want it ink’d on their body. To me, a tattoo should symbolize something to you, but most of the time, I think that if you want it, and you’ve thought long and hard about wether you want it on you for life, then go for it! A tattoo doesn’t nessesarly need to have meaning to it, and that’s what I believe is the controversy of tattoos now a days, just because people get tattoos because they love them, and not because they have a deep meaning to them… So what! It’s not your body, so you don’t have to live with it! To the point of this post! Yes, I do have a tattoo. this is what it looks like. (picture below).

Now, I know that I have a meaning to my tattoo, but to be honest, it took me a while after I got the tattoo, to really understand the meaning I wanted linked to it. But, now that I have one… I want another! It’s almost like chocolate, its an addiction if you let it be! To be honest, I want one, because I want one! Not that I need one, just another thing that I need to think about what I really want, but I know that I do want to get another. Maybe in addition to the one I already have, or a new addition to my body. I have ideas in mind, and these are some locations i’m thinking of!

on the neck (thinking of the cross tattoo as well, very delicate looking, and always has a meaning)

 on the spine

now this is not going to suit everyone, but I do like the way it looks on the lower abdomen… I know, its a love hate thing!

lower abdomen/hip, now this is one that i’m very interested in!

thigh (if you’re getting your first tattoo, this one is supposed to hurt the least!)

back of the ankle

Now, the one that I show you next, is one that I believe looks the most divine! Even though I probably will never get it, or if I would really want it myself, but the way that it was tattoo’d onto this girls back, my goodness it’s just jaw dropping! Complete inspiration!

So, if you were to get a tattoo, thinking about one, or are getting one in the near future, where & what is it going to be?

I would love to know what you guys are getting, and what you think looks best!
