I love tattoo’s.
Scrap that. I ADORE TATTOOS. Be it on my own body or on others, there is something about having art permanently on a body that really gets me going.

I have quite a few tattoos, most of them are on my arms, though I’m progressing to other parts of my body. I got my very first one when I was 13, its a dolphin in my stomach. Honestly it was a quick choice and I haven’t looked back on it since. The first one was because I have a MASSIVE scar on my stomach from an illness as a baby, and I wanted something to detract away from it. I then became addicted to tattoos.

I am always looking for more tattoos and this post is actually more about what I want to get and why and less about what I already have.
For starters I’m planning to finish of my eeveelution sleeve. Which is going to be the longest time consuming piece because of all the Pokemon I’m having put on me. Secondly, filling the space will be pokeballs, hearts, flowers, and some other bits thrown in, that will be kind of little hidden surprises.
As well as the eeveelution sleeve, I am also planning to get this quote. I decided that if I was going to get a quote, that it had to be something memorable and something that means a lot to me. This. This one quote is the perfect description of me recovering drug addiction, coming out, starting transition and beyond. I showed my mum it and she told me that it was perfect. That was all the proof I needed and eventually I’m getting it done , after I’ve had top surgery or at some other point.
Not pokemon related, but I’m in serious need of a cover up on my shin. Basically I allowed my best friend to tattoo me whilst she was practicing, and whilst it’s a great practice example, for a first time. It needs to look pretty. I’m going to try and get a tribal style that kind of goes with my drawings, and its going to be black with small hints of colours.

There will be others eventually that I will list off, but right now that’s all I’m looking for, its a lot of work, but I’m willing to go through the pain to have beautiful work on me
