Soooooo, I decided to get another tattoo.

Big but awesome right?! I’m super happy with it.

Trust me, this was no spur of the moment decision. I’ve been thinking about this for a very, very long time. I also interviewed 7 tattoo artists at 7 different shops.

After much consideration and many conversations, I ended up going with Taka Tamada at Body Electric in Hollywood.

This guy is amazing. He specializes in Japanese body pieces so this was easy-peasy for him. When shopping around for an artist, I got a range of 3 to 9 hours to bang this bad boy out. Taka did it in under 2 hours. Way under 2 hours. Which, let me tell you, was good because I don’t think I could have taken much more!

Here I am, coooooool as a cucumber…

Don’t let my cool demeanor fool you – this did not feel good. It wasn’t crazy outrageous pain, but it was painful nonetheless. Definitely some pain.

Now, I know a lot of people aren’t a fan of women with tattoos for a number of reasons, which is fine. But what gets me are the stereotypes that people are still hanging on to. Silliness. According to the internet …

  • I’m a whore
  • I have poor decision making skills
  • I’m a biker chick
  • I’m a lesbian
  • I have more sex than most women
  • I’m not to be trusted
  • I would make a bad parent
  • I’m a gangbanger
  • I’m uneducated
  • I’m an attention whore
  • I have daddy issues
  • I’m dirty and have STDs
  • I wear wifebeaters without a bra

Let me just clear the air > I’m none of those things. I’m still the same awesome chick I was before I got this tattoo.

Stupid Internet. Stop trying to tell me who I am! You’re not the boss of me!!!

And let’s be honest. I’m 37 years old and chesty. Who would benefit from me running around with no bra on? NO ONE. NOOOOOOOO ONE.

    Totally love your new ink, its awesome. Funny the one on my back was more painful than the others I got, perhaps its the place. I’d like to add I’m so not any of those stereotypes either, in fact quite the opposite in some and I love my tatt’s.

    This looks INCREDIBLE! And anything but a bra-less wife beater would just cover it up to much. 😉
