Tat, Tat, Tatted up!

So yesterday I got another tattoo. 
Have I showed ya'll my other ones? 
I didn't think so. 

The first one I got was a crown on the back of my neck.
I got it in Louisiana when I was 17 because as long as you had your parent with you, there was no age limit. 
I have a picture of it somewhere, but I just can't seen to find it...

Then on my 18th birthday, I got this bad boy.

I know, it's huge! 
And believe me, it hurt. 

Then I wanted to do something cool for spring break this past year.
What else would I do besides getting a tattoo?
The diamond tattoo stand for being unbreakable, and I got is as close to my heart as I could. 
I had my heart broken once and I refuse to let my heart go through that again, so just knowing that I am unbreakable is something I think about a lot.

Hello Graduation!
I mean everyone gets a tattoo for graduation, right?
No? Well I did. 
This was part 1:
Excuse the muffin top...
And then I had to go back and get it colored:
The sugar skull stands for the death of a child and the roses are the birth of an adult. 
Hence my graduation high school and stepping out into the real world. 

And since 19th birthdays are so lame, I had to get a tattoo to spice it up which is what I did last night. 
This is before the coloring and shading:
And then here it is allllll finished up!
"She is clothed in strength and dignity."
I love it so much, even though it looks kinda gross today with all the extra ink coming out. 

Hopefully in a few months I'll be able to get the other part of the quote on the front of my other shoulder. 
I'm so excited!

Yes, all of my tattoos are pretty big, but hey, 
go big or go home, right?

Now I need to ask y'all something... 
I definitely want to do a photo shoot featuring all of my tattoos. 
Do any of you know anyone in the DFW area that would be interested in doing something like that?
I know these will fade out and not look as good as they do now one day, so I want something to remember all of them by in the future. 
Please, please, please let me know if you know anyone:)

Have a lovely Thursday ladies!

Okay, I'm 27, and my mama still tells me I better not get any tatoos (anymore, rather). I do have one. It's cool that you mom let you express yourself age 17 and get one. Yes, they are definitely BIG, but I love that they all have a positive message. SO COOL!!!

Totally creepin' on your old posts, and I love your tattoos! They are beautiful! I want one so bad, I'm thinking of getting Phillipians 4:6 but I haven't decided on design or placement yet!!
