Tattoo Tag!

Hi Guys, been a litttle mia again so sorry! I have an exam in under a month that determines if I get into uni or not so I've been fully focusing on that! Today though I thought I'd do the Tattoo tag that has been around for a few years now. Without further ado....

1.How many tattoos do you have? 
6!
2. What's your favourite tattoo you have? 
I honestly don't think I have a favourite one as they all have a special meaning to me
3. How old were you when you got your first tattoo & what was it? 
On my 18th birthday, my best friend Caitlyn & got 'keep smiling, keep shining' on our foot as that is our song. This was way before bridesmaids came out may I add! It has slightly faded which can be expected with this placement as it is constantly rubbing on shoes and slippers etc.

4. What do your parents think about your tattoo? 
It's my body so tbh I don't think they can tell me what to do at 25! All of them can be hidden so also they can't say anything. Plus on their 50th birthday trip they got their first tattoos!
5. Does your boyfriend like your tattoos, if so what's his favourite? 
Again, my body my rules! When I first met Sam I didn't have any. Tattoos are all personal preference and just because he doesn't have any doesn't mean we can't be together. If your partner can't love you just because some tats you need a new one!
6. Did you always have a love for tattoos and what was your inspiration? 
I always knew I wanted a tattoo just because I thought they looked cool when I was younger but I don't think I had any inspiration! 
7. Do you plan on getting more tattoos in the future? 
I always say after the last one that that is my last! But I want 'love you' in my mum & dad's writing on my hip and my gran's name in her writing somewhere.
8. Which tattoo would you say was the most painful? 
People who say tattoos aren't sore are big liars! All of mines were pretty painful as I got them all on pretty boney areas. If I had to pick it would probably be one going down my side close to my back as that was over maybe 4 ribs. It is 1243 in roman numerals which was my gumps last marathon number before he passed.
Sorry it is so hard to get a pic of your back when noone is home!


9. Do you regret any of your tattoo's and why? 
Nope! They all are a part of me or who I was at that time!
10. What was your least painful tattoo? 
Again all mines were painful!
11. Do you worry about pregnancy with a stomach tattoo? 
I don't have one...
12. How did you get inspiration/ideas for each tattoo? All of mines do! So I will do it in order I got them if I can remember the right order..
  • 1st - 'keep smiling keep shining' with Caitlyn who I've been friends with for over 10 years now
  • 2nd - 'you leave me breathless' on my lung that doesn't work
  • 3rd - '1243' in roman numerals, my gumps' last marathon number
  • 4th - 'new york skyline' on my ankle. my favourite place in the world
  • 5th - 'S' behind my ear for Sam which I got right after my wedding
  • 6th - 'three little hearts with the first one coloured in' my siblings have this one to and we all have one coloured in for the age we are.

13. What tattoo are you having removed & why?                                   None
14. What made you decide to get heavily tattooed? 
I am not heavily tattooed and I probably won't ever be. All my tattoos are quite small - medium so some times people are actually surprised to hear I have tattoos.
15. If you could start again would you pick completely different tattoos or do anything differently?                                                                                   If I was to do anything - I'd probably have went somewhere that was better recommended for my first ones rather than the local place.
16. Have you had any problems with getting a job with tattoos? 
Nope! This could be due to the fact any mines can be hidden. I wouldn't want to work anywhere that still discriminated based on tattoos.
17. What after care do you use? 
 Bepanthen mainly afterwards and clean with antibac soap. I don't do anything now though as my last one is almost a year old.
18. Do you hate your tattoos sometimes? 
Nope! & it kind of defeats the point of having them?
19. Where do you get your tattoos done? 
I got 1 in Florida, and the rest with tattoo artists in Glasgow
20. Where wouldn’t you get tattooed? 
100% my face. Why does everyone do this now? Do you enjoy looking like a soundcloud rapper? Really this a true question! I would rather look like poop than lil xan!
21. What’s your most recent tattoo? 
I got my S tattoo done October 2018 and my hearts a few weeks later!

So here are all my tattoos:








That is it guys!
Hopefully I'll be back into the swing of things ASAP but unfortunately my studying has to take priority now so all my apologies!
