I GOT A TATTOO (AGAIN!)


I have been wanting to share this post ever since I got my tattoo just over a week ago! It's over the main stage of the healing process so I feel like I can finally share with you the next addition to my tattoo collection and I honestly think I'm in love with it!


One of the main issues I have when it comes to getting a tattoo is that I have huge commitment issues - I've never been in a relationship, I can never stick to one hairstyle and the thought of having to make any long term life decisions scares the hell out of me! So, choosing a piece of artwork that is literally going to be on my body for the rest of my life is a pretty big decision for a commitment phobe like me to make. I have a ton of ideas for tattoos I want in the future but then my brain kinda goes into overdrive and I start to overthink and panic - do I really want this for the rest of my life? Sure I like it now but will I in 10, 20, 30 years?! How is it going to look when I'm 75? How am I going to explain this to others? Yeah, paired together my anxiety and commitment issues make quite the team! So, for me a lot of thought and meaning has to go into a tattoo. Just so I can 100% know I am going to be happy and love my tattoo for the rest of my life and not end up regretting it.



So, for my second tattoo I decided to get a rose on my inner upper arm (I'd say bicep but I definitely don't have those >.<). I have always said that if a man ever brought me a black rose then I would love him forever and it's kind of become a bit of a running joke. So, I decided to buy myself a permanent black rose as a constant reminder to myself that the only person I need to love me, is me. I have never been the best at showing myself some self love and I've discovered recently how important learning to love myself is. I have constantly been trying to find love and look for that love and validation I have never shown myself from others, particularity men. I need to stop and learn that I need to show myself the love and validation I so desperately crave, I need to love and accept myself, something I didn't even realise I wasn't doing until recently. So, my tattoo is my reminder that I am good enough and that the only persons love I truly need is my own.



I had such an incredible tattoo artist, I mean just take a look at his work here! He was so patient and kept me really calm throughout the entire process. I loved that you could tell just how much thought, detail and effort went into the design of my tattoo from my first enquiry email to the actual day. He made the whole process so much easier for me and I felt so much more relaxed and at ease than my first tattoo and will definitely be booking in again with him when I decide which tattoo I want to get next - I'm feeling a leg tattoo should be my next move...

Till next time,

  2. Another thing that you should remember is never ever to scratch your tattoo, no matter how much it itches. The moment it itches, put more lotion on it.

  3. First of all you will need to find your design that you are wanting tattooed on your body. The tattoo shop you are going to will most likely have thousands of designs that you can look through. You may also be able to have the artist create a unique design for you. lotusmeaning.com/lotus-flower-tattoo/

  4. Above all other things, there are two major factors that go into determining whether or not you have what it takes to become a real tattoo artist. good tattoo places
