I have a relatively big one on my arm/shoulder. It contains an owl, a tree and two Latin words that represent a line of the bible. Its a very personal and meaningful tattoo, cause its about sides of my character, my hopes for my life and my past and struggles, it contains a lot, so every time when I look at it it reminds me of who I am. I got it when I was already 25 and I don`t think I will ever regret it. The decision took years, it was a wish I had for a very long time and I didn´t want it to be that obvious, so that people look at it/read it and think: "Ah well so thats what she´s all about"
So it needed a lot of thoughts and ideas to finally be done. I like simple tattoos, classic style, so the artwork itself wasn´t that hard in the end.
I plan 2 other tattoos, not more, not less. One bigger one and one smaller one. I will have one on the outside of my thigh, opposite side to the shoulder/armtattoo, so that I will have my left thigh and my right shoulder. I like the kind of balance that makes. And there will be one small thing in my neck. Its only because of the meaning mainly, its not meant to be highly decorative or visible, the others are both, decorative and meaningful. But the next tattoos have time, I don´t rush with that.
Its a bit addictive with the needles on your skin of course, so its not that I don`t understand people who just can´t get enough, but I think I won´t get my whole body tattoed, though I like it a lot on many girls and guys
I think some people just need to have tattoos, its not only a fashion trend I guess (for some maybe, but for many it is not). Its also a very emotional thing, having something that means a lot to you painted under and into your skin with needles. I loved the sessions for my first one, very ruminant hours in which I felt good and close to myself and happy in my body.
