As you can see by the pictures below, I started out as a relatively small-time tattoo collector and stuck with black line drawings for my first five. I've found that just like I as a person have grown, so has my tattoo taste...hence the two larger, color pieces. This does not mean that I regret any of my tattoos--far from it, actually. I love each one of them because I did my homework and made sure it was a design I loved. Plus, the benefit to black tattoos on white skin is that they look awesome with just about anything :)
Many people have given me the "what will it look like when you're 80" line, and my answer is that my skin will probably look the same as yours, just with pictures on it. If you don't like tattoos, you don't, and that's fine. If you don't like my tattoos, fine, you don't, and I really don't care. But for those of you who like to look, I've added them here for your viewing pleasure. Thanks for looking!
|My first tattoo - Rob and I got this together. It's on my right hip, which I didn't think anyone really wanted to see but here it is anyway. This word, Anamchara, means "soulmate" or "spiritual guide" in Gaelic. Rob has this on his arm.|
|The latest addition, after 25 hours of work. This tattoo was sort of an homage to my husband, a former Army paratrooper, his friends, the experience and the effect it had on us, and my own military heritage.|
