I hate it when ppl tell you that in ten years or w.e you will regret your tattoos. But on what you said i just explain them because they mean so much to me.I have 5 - swallows on my feet, a rose on my left leg, a ship on my right leg and stars behind my ear. The stars were my first and were a Cancun moment so were just a bit of fun. The others are meaningful to me but I hate that people want you to justify your reasons for getting them to them. Who cares. I like that I can hide them all, some people don't know that I even have one. Can't wait to get more, I love decorating myself!
I have always wanted to walk into a tattoo place and look at their book and just pick a small lil one out of the book.Though I am more the "meaningful-tattoo"-type, I agree with you SatelliteEyes. Sometimes it can be a permanent decoration and you´re happy with that all your life, cause it simply looks great and when it comes to fashion, which tattoos are part of - though not for everyone, it can be perfect if something just fits with the person who´s wearing it perfectly.
