sooo...I def want indian feathers behind my right ear and the chinese symbol for crazy behind my left ear [kind of a family thing...long story]! I can't wait!
I'm getting a tattoo on my right side of an octopus and it's gonna have a lil seahorse and blue swirls for water around it with a quote by Dodie Smith which reads...“The family, that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor in our innermost hearts never quite wish to.” [I can't wait!!!]
I'm getting a tattoo on my left shoulder one much like corey miller from L.A. ink did on a guys arm...the sunshine is gonna come over from the back and there is gonna be the shadow of a tree with the suns rays behind it...I want it small enough to be covered by a t-shirt sleave but big enough to have detail.
I'm getting 2 butterflies on my wrist by my brothers intials the smaller one by his and being me [for my change after his death] and the larger one being for him [the meaning of a butterfly could be a persons soul leaving their body after death] my cousin had a henna tattoo and I fell in love with it!! I asked if I could steal it and she said yes so I am...I'm tweaking the design inside slightly and it's gonna be plain black my back and my bird tattoos are my color and so is my octopus...I want some black and grey wash ones!
Also I've been wanting a tattoo inside my lip my brother and I both...I'm gonna get bro in mine and he's gonna get sis in his! I'm excited it might hurt but eh I've already done over 20 hours so I think I'll survive.
And last but not lease I think I want my anti brow pierced I think it's really cute and not masculine at all...I don't know if it's okay with my face and I'm not sure if having my monroe and this will look bad...my tongue usually stays in my mouth so you can't see that one like ever...lemme know what you think :]
Also I've already decided I'm getting my industrial when I get paid. :]
I would like to think society is a little more excepting but it is not quit there yet, I am 34 and have no problem with my tats as a bartender, however I worked at a bank for 10 years and the only ones that you could see sometimes were the ones on my ankles and that was because the branch manger was ok with it, but come meeting time I needed to be covered, it was this way for most all banks and I don't see that one changing anytime soon, I now work at a Vet hospital and I must keep them someone covered. A little bit of my arm shows and that is not that big of a deal, however I was told when My sleeve was finished that they hoped I knew that I would have to wear long sleeve's all the time. So I know I will have too.
I wish society would be a little more excepting however you have to remember there is a owner to every company and he can call the shots and one of them may be NO tattoo's
So I am glad you are keeping it in mind and good luck.
and so do I...the only one that shows is my initials on my wrist the rest will be covered alsoo...as you should know this is not the 1950's and many [not all] are not as stuck up [or I don't know how to say this closed minded] as they used to be...the career I'm going into I'll be able to cover all my tattoos except the one on my wrist which is very acceptable in society...[by some I should say] it's not offensive and could be easily covered by long sleaves many of my tats are going to be on my back and my sides so those will be easily covered by anything excluding a tube top or bikini [both of which I will not be wearing to work] lol...but I know exactly where you are coming from and it's still in the back of my mind! thanks :] and hope your sleeve looks great! [also the best heart surgeon in my region has full sleeves so maybe society is being a little more accepting] :]
your body, your life, your choice. this is not hurting anyone, (well maybe your career) but like I said, do what you want but make sure it is right for you and who cares what I think about it, I don't even know you. Get it? Just be smart about your choices.
I have 12 tats and I am working on a full sleeve, but I also keep my job or future job int the back of my head.
Wow, you've got all these tattoos planned out all ready! That's a little much to be thinking of, considering you might change your mind on some before you get around to it!
It's not corrupting your body, so long as you think it's OK!
