I’ve always been torn on super visible tattoos. I’ve always loved them, but never thought I would get them, based on the fact that a) I was only ever going to get 1 tattoo (how quickly that changed!) and b) I was in jobs that really didn’t allow for them. The ones on my arms had to be covered, so I spent a lot of time in long sleeves. When I started working for a firm that didn’t care about me having tattoos I began to think more about the more visible places, then when I started working for myself, that thought began to take more of a hold.
After a while of these thoughts going round and round in my head, I simply thought “fuck it!” and I decided to go for it.
It’s taking me a while to get use to them, I won’t lie - but I’m definitely thrilled with them. Plus, if anyone does make negative comments about them, I’ll just flip them the finger.
