Thinking about getting my second and third tattoo as a birthday gift to myself this weekend (since we will be traveling on my actual birthday the following week). I got my first tattoo about a year and a half ago.
How many tattoos do you have? What are they?
Do it! Tattoos are awesome, if tasteful and done properly.
I have three tattoos myself. Well, technically four, but one is cover by the one I'm currently having done. First tattoo was a religious one I got when I turned 18, and then fell out of religion, so I'm having it replaced by one that will never change (ethnic-based).
The one I'm currently having done, which will also be my largest to date, will run from my shoulder down to my mid-forearm (so a three quarter sleeve). It is based off Northwest Coast Tribal artwork (Haida/Tlingit), which is 15% of my ethnic background - and the only ethnic background I want to honor with a tattoo. It will also incorporate a Canadian Maple Leaf, as I'm a Canadian citizen (and American - I hold dual citizenship), and I'm proudly American, but also just as proud to be Canadian.
The other two tattoos are emblems based off of personal likes, one on my inner right forearm, the other on my lower right leg.
Definitely plan on getting more once my current one is finished.
It's hilarious - my coworkers and those I manage thought I was Mr. Prim and Proper given my personality and outward appearance in the suit - don't get me wrong, I'm not a [censored] raiser or anything - and when we were at a casual bank function, and I was in a short sleeve shirt and shorts, they were like, "OMG YOU HAVE TATTOOS?!"
It's always funny to see people's reactions. Yes, just because I'm a VP and have a respectable position/job doesn't make me a boring, non-indivual person, haha.
