not that i’ve ever considered it

I love my tattoos. They’re not the world’s most intricate designs or the most creative in nature, but I love them and they’re important to me. I’ve seen some tattoos that are oh-holy-crap-those-are-bad-and-I-want-to-cry-for-you and want to suggest tattoo removal. I somehow wondered across theĀ best laser tattoo removal website I’ve ever seen in my life. “You’ve outgrown your stamp” is the funniest advertising campaign I’ve ever seen in my life for people to get rid of their tattoos. The laser technology is amazing, the finish of the tattoo removal is like it wasn’t there in the first time, and is not the only use lasers have now a days there are amazing machines that create great designs with lasers, if you want to watch how those work visit

so now it’s permanent

I wasn’t kidding when I said I was getting another tattoo this week. As of about 8:30 last night, I should be good for another few months before I start obsessing about another one.

Ever since I got my first tattoo so long ago (fine, eight months ago), I’ve wanted to get a nautical star. I couldn’t decide on placement, and I kept thinking that it was ultra-douchey because so many people have it. Something just kept drawing me back to it, though. I’d originally thought I was getting something else, but couldn’t really pinpoint exactly what I want. And, really, I had my doubts about getting a tattoo that required any type of artist-related skills while in a town. I wussed out on my original design, and decided to just get the damn nautical stars already.

Right arm!

Left arm finished!

They’re just above my elbows on both arms, about three inches tall or so. On a scale from 1-10, with 1 being "Wait, did you actually do something?" and 10 being "I’D RATHER DIE THAN EXPERIENCE THIS PAIN!", it was maybe a 3. The nautical star has some fantastic meaning behind it, no matter where you read about it. It just kinda fit perfectly what I wanted, plus it’s a star, which I love, and I pretty much am in love with black and red tattoos anyway.

I ended up going to a place called Skin Thieves here in Sedalia. I’d absolutely go there again, should I get the urge to get tattooed while visiting ye ol’ family. They were awesome.

My brother went with me and took a few pictures, and I tried taking a few pictures of the aftermath, but it wasn’t exactly easy getting a picture of the back of both of your elbows!

tattoos are for lovers

You know how they say it takes all kinds to make the world go ’round and all that jazz? Well, I kinda like how they now make personal ad sites for all those kinds. My latest find and personal favorite for the time being? Well, the one for tattoo lovers, of course!

While I didn’t check the site out as extensively as I would have liked to (hey, I’m at work!), I can only hope that users have the capability to search by tattoo type, location, and quantity.

Turn-ons: Tattoo sleeves, Old English script, memorial pieces, and Sailor Jerry Tattoos.

Turn-offs: portraits of any member of a 1980s hair band on any part of their body, Comic Sans font, and the names of previous partners.

I should probably add on some more tattoos before I get too far into the world of tattoo dating. Good thing I already have an idea for my 3rd and 4th ones, and know where to get a tattoo removed… just in case.
