I've always been a major fan of tattoos, there's just something about the permanence of a beautiful piece of art on your skin forever. Of course, that's not always the case for everyone but you can't argue that many, many people are covered in stunningly gorgeous pieces.
I already have one tattoo - a memorial tattoo I got on a whim this summer. It means a lot to me, but it scarred badly and that's a major shame :( But tomorrow, I have an appointment booked for a brand new tattoo. It's going to cost me an absolute fortune (more than my rent!) but at the end of the day, I don't mind paying out for something that will hopefully be on me forever. I've spent more on piercings and I barely wear any of mine!
The design is all sorted - an old school tall ship (for my love of nautical history) on my thigh - but I just can't wait. Hopefully I'll have some photos of it on Monday, I just can't wait to be able to show it off, really!
