I like to reward myself with tattoos. I only get them when I feel like I deserve them. In fact, I recently cancelled an appointment because I had gained weight and didn't feel like I earned the ink.

I have four, all with some type of meaning. On my left shoulder is my cousin's name, we lost her to suicide.

On the right shoulder is a tattoo I got with my mom. Mine says "I'll love you forever" and hers says "I'll like you for always." It's from a book she read to me when I was little.

Then on my ribs, I have two. They were gotten at two different times in my life by two different artists, so even though they're close to each other, I consider them two distinct tattoos. I have an Ernest Hemingway quote with his signature. "The world breaks everyone and afterward, many are strong at the broken place." 

Under that, I have some daisies that were designed to look more weed-like than pretty. Overgrown.

I love the pain from tattoos (healthier than cutting, I suppose) and I love the idea of permanently staining my body.

 

Do you have any tattoos? What's your reason?

I don't really like to get into my reasons but yeah I have tattoos. Here's my gross body but it shows some of them.

I definitely want more as a reward though but not until my UGW. I have a clown on my leg. A fox and crow on my right upper arm and a circus elephant on my left forearm. Those are the only ones you can see in the pic.

Thanks, dude. Don't be scared. It really doesn't hurt that much. One you get started, you get into a zone, it's almost meditative. At least for me. If you can handle rib tattoos you can definitely handle an arm tattoo. Unless the reason you're scared is visibility. In that case, fuck everybody and wear your ink proudly.

I'm definitely not afraid of the pain. I guess it is the visibility thing. I like to be able to cover them easily if necessary. I guess something upper arm wouldn't be bad, though... you're definitely tempting me to get one!

I have two.

A small heart on my left wrist I did myself and left incomplete and hollow in purpose. I did it during a really bad time of my life. Seeing it reminds me if his far I've come and it makes me feel better.

The other is a large chaos star that looks like a stamp. It represents how chaos has marked me and how I've managed to find the balance in it. :3

i have one! did it in september this year, only a few days after i turned eighteen. it's a sentence from a song that means A LOT to me (break the border by yohio), that song and especially that sentence has helped me through so much. i have depression and extreme social anxiety, and ever since i first heard the song one and a half year ago i've been writing that sentence on my wrist with a marker, like some sort of reminder to myself. and whenever i've been scared or sad or just felt like giving up, i've looked down on my wrist and it's always made me keep on fighting. so when i turned eighteen i immediately got this tattoo, and now it's going to be there forever to remind myself to stay strong. i got it tattooed over all my old self harm scars, too. seriously i can't even try to describe how mush this tattoo means to me.

I have 9!

1 on my wrist. 

1 on the back of my leg.

1 on my hip.

1 on the back of my neck.

2 on my feet.

3 on my right arm.

 

I love tattoos (obviously) and for me they are a good reward when I've lost weigh!  :)

I have two. One of the them is the quote "you deserve to live" with the neda sign on top of it. I realized how cheesy it sounded after getting it. Oh well. Impulsive decisions always get the best of me   :P
