My Journal - Week 101 (02Aug11)
Many people may not realize the commonality of Tattoos these days. I am not your usual plain old everyday person. I like art permanently inked onto my body. I may have many tattoos on my body but one thing I ensure is that each one of my tattoos has significant meaning behind it. I have always planned and carefully thought out each and every single one of my pieces. I know that tattoos are much more accepted these days and that viewing a person with many tattoos has less of a shock factor than it once did. I personally do not tattoo my body to shock people, as many out there do. My tattooing is significant, which for every person it should be. There are however, people out there who do have plenty of images on their person that seem to make no sense or that the general public may question. What I have realized about myself is, I would only get a tattoo that I believe will stand the test of time. In other words, will I still enjoy this image when I am a grandmother? As it stands for now, I do believe that I will. One image that I know I will never question is one that I had done today.
Since my life has become "Everything Down syndrome" I thought, if all my tattoos signify a special significance in my life, why not an image I developed which is all about Ds?
Here is my latest tattoo:
|Starting from the right side...|
|The middle (it's too round to take one shot)...|
|The left side...|
|A final mid shot...|
I can understand that there are those out there who will not like or appreciate the tattoo art. Some will feel that it's too much, others may reach back to the old days. For those who do not like tattoo work, I can't be sorry - it's a part of who I am, they are for me. For those more current or modern folks who do like the images, I thank you! Either way, hopefully you will love me for me, I believe Daddy, Hunter and Hayleigh do!
