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.
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.
