Here is a photo of one of my tatoos,
the camera does not pick it up very well,
it is still quite bright but remember it has faded a lot over time.
This is my first tatoo I had gotten,
my ex had matching birds on his chest
which he let me do,
I was quite impressed with it,
but never did another one,
Lots of times I would do the drawings for clients,
my favorite was a wolf that changed into a man.
My third tattoo I do not have a picture of it,
It is a geisha lady going over a bridge,
It is about half finished because it is on my back,
and it hurt,
and then I became alergic to the red ink,
so every time I go in the sun it raises a bit,
After we got divorced I just never had the interest to have it finished.
That phase had passed for me.
I would really recommend to anyone getting them
to make sure they really give it some thought,
and to make sure they go to a reputable tatooist
that follows all health guidelines.
I would also not recommend getting a tattoo
on your face, neck or hands,
as you can easily be stereotyped,
although it is much more common today than it was when I had mine done,
especially on the lower back.
Some doctors will not do a spinal anymore
during childbirth because of the ink
and the risk of it getting into the blood stream.
so anyway I had promised some pictures.
words of advise,,,,don't get a tattoo because you like the tattooist,
and most tatooists will not tattoo a name.
Because life is too unpredictable,
name changes don't usually turn out to good on skin,
strange thing is sometimes no matter if good or bad,
you can be left with an imprint on your heart,
scars and tattoos usually fade after time.
so there you have it.
Now you know.
Have a great day,
