Day 4: Piercings & Tattoos

Today’s post got me a little excited; I do love piercings and tattoos.

If I had my way I’d be covered; well from the neck down anyway.

Piercing wise I have two holes per ear lob and the top of my ear pierced.  I’m not a huge piercing person and I have no desire to have anything else pierced.  Not even a Princess Albertina.  Google it, I dare you.

I do have quite a few tattoos, I’ll explain each of them.

I had my first tattoo when I was 18; which was a plain boring butterfly on my right shoulder.  The bloody thing faded quickly so it was touched up within a year.  I had it for the simple reason I liked the picture.

My second was when I was 21 and I had a flower covering a tea-stain mark on my tummy below my belly button.  It started out as a cute little thing and since growing and birthing a 9lb baby it now looks like a triffid with skid-marks through it.  It will forever be covered.

Next up was a flower on my right ankle when I was 24ish.  This one hurt.  Again I liked the picture and thought it might look nice.

I had a few more butterflies and wording added to my shoulder age 26.  I loved the phrase ‘just floating like a butterfly’ and had the wording added.  Unfortunately without realising it became an unofficial tribute to Chaka Demus & Pliers.

Next I got bored one day and had a heart tattooed on my left wrist.  The car was in for an MOT and I found a tattoo shop.  No meanings again, you notice the pattern…

Last year I decided on the design I wanted on my right wrist and it was simple; my sons full name and date of birth.  This one has meaning; it feels like he is always with me and it’s simple but full of meaning.

So that’s it – I have plans for more but no funds to get them!
