Tattoos, Yes or No?

This is something which I am genuinely interested in, after getting my 4th and 5th tattoo recently, I've been reading a lot of posts about different opinions on tattoos.
Mine being, whatever makes you happy right? If being covered in tattoos of choice makes you happy, cool. If having one tattoo makes you happy, cool. If having none at all makes you happy, cool. I like to think I'm not one to judge, (I try, at least!),
Personally, being covered in them isn't something I aim for, initially, does anyone really aim for that when we get our first one? I think tattoos are more of an addiction than anything, which is what makes us want more and more of them. I have 5;
- an infinity symbol with family combined into it, on my foot.
- "sisters by heart", on my lower shin.
- "smile the whole way through...", on my ribs.
- a tiny heart on my foot, ankle area.
- a small anchor on my foot, ankle area.
The reason for writing this post, is I'm genuinely interested In your opinions, do you like tattoos? do you have any? do you want any? is there a reason for the opinion you have? I've never really came across anyone who strongly dislikes them, and I'd be quite interested in learning as to why! :)
I work with children, luckily I work in a setting that promotes diversity, we never single anyone out for being 'different', and we have a strong belief that you shouldn't have to hide anything that makes you, you. for a job. The children love asking questions and learning about the tattoos, piercings, cultures, hairstyles, etc, of the staff in my work place. Is this a good thing? I think so.
A post that's a little different from me today, I'd love to hear your opinions,
do you have any tattoos?

  1. I'm not a lover nor a hater of tattoo's. I've actually kind of wanted one myself but I don't think I would be brave enough. I like ones that have meaning to them, like I think quotes are always good to have on a tattoo. I think as long as they're tasteful people can do what they want to their bodies :) I have to say I do love tattoo sleeves on guys though (: http://www.coffeeatmidnight13.blogspot.co.uk/

    1. I'm the same, if they're tasteful why not!
      I'm a lover of a sleeve too, they can either make or break a person though I think!
      Thank you for reading and leaving your blog! Xo

  2. I wish I had a tattoo but I don't want something I will regret in a few years. I have a few personal ideas in mind but I'm not sure if I'd ever go through with them!

    1. I was exactly the same before getting my first one, thinking would it be something id want in the future, so I put off getting it for a long while before I got the balls to just do it haha! I'm glad I did, but if it was an awful tattoo i'm sure my opinion would be a lot different!
      Definitely needs to be something you're 100% sure of!

  3. I do want a tattoo in the future but I think that I would never be brave enough and i'm not 100% sure on whether I would still want it a few years later.I like tattoos that have meanings to them and quotes and I think that if I were to get one it would be somewhere like my arm.But I think that if someone wants a tattoo then they can because it's their body and they should be able to do what they want with it without caring about what other people think of them.

    1. it is a little scary! I think the build up puts you off more than anything, the pain is something you can put up with, its not a really painful pain (if that makes sense), imagine dragging a needle across your skin, kinda feels like that, sounds worse than it actually is I swear haha!
      I was going to get one on my arm but changed my mind last minute, definitely agree with you that it's personal choice and if someone wants one that's their business!X

  4. big yes :D I have only a small one but planning to get more :) I think tattoos are pretty common nowadays and tattoed grandparents won´t be that crazy anymore when we are old!

    1. sorry for the late reply, ive been on holiday!
      yeah that's very true! I think they're becoming the norm now, imagine if the new thing was to have none at all when we're all old.. we'll look really strange and out of fashion haha! xx
