I have always loved and wanted tattoos but been put off getting any by doctors because of a skin condition. This has been a sore point because I find them incredibly sexy (in moderation) and they have the potential to be very meaningful.
I’m now in my thirties and decided that my hot years aren’t going to last forever so if I’m going to risk it, now is the time! Six months ago my sister and I made our first appointment. We got matching sister tattoos and I got a mother-child tattoo for A. Aaaaaaand…no side effects!!! I was hooked. The ink had barely set before I started looking for my next one.
This is the problem with tattoos, most people can’t stop with one. It’s tricky because you need to find something that you love and holds meaning to you. Placement is also incredibly important because you don’t want tattoos scattered all over you at random. There needs to be cohesion. It needs to all work together as one piece of art.
Got my third one done this morning and it looks great! The role of tattooed mummy sits well with me. I was brought up in quite a conservative Indian household and I don’t want that for my daughter. I want her to know that her body belongs to her and she decides what she wants to do with it or not do with it. It’s my job to make sure she is given the tools to make the right decisions with that power.
