tattoo peekaboo



jeans - c/o Paige Premium Denim
shirt - H+M


I haven't worn a bikini in years and I don't make a habit of walking around the city in my underwear (very often), so there are plenty of people I know who have no idea that this tattoo exists. I kind of love that it's such a big piece yet so easily hidden, but from time to time I like to let it show through in a loose, sheer top. I mean goodness gracious, I didn't sleep through several hours of a tattoo to keep it hidden all the time.

Edit: I linked to it but I guess I hid the link a little too much, too! You can see the full tattoo here: clickety click

  9. Very nice, almost slightly erotic I think (in a good, classy, mysterious way!)

  11. I saw the other post on tattoos and it looks really good! I have a small one on my shoulder. But I had it for 8 years now. I dream of a big one, covering my left side, just like yours, but only larger :)

  12. I love your tattoo! I have 7 tattoos, and people are always surprised cause they're all pretty hidden.

  13. so weird - i had this very outfit - skinny indigo jeans and nude chiffon top out to wear today but didnt get to coz my youngest was sick from school so practicality took over ! - nice to see it would have looked nice! - tatoo is cute - mine also peeks out every now and then - love that!

  15. Peekaboo tattoos are incredible sexy (in a good way)! <3

  16. I totally know what you mean! I'm a huge fan of tattoos in that spot, by the way. I have a fairly big one on my shoulder and I'm super shy to show it sometimes. (I still haven't shown it on my blog yet!) But I love the way you can catch glimpses of yours!

  17. I never knew you had one! it looks gorgeous and I'd love to see a full on pic...it's sort of peeking out barely in this one! <3

  18. Ohh, just had a look at the full picture, it's beautiful! The majority of the tattoo's I have planned are going to be hidden, which I think is the best way, then you can choose when exactly you show them off :) xx

  19. I love that sheer top! I need more of those in my life.

  20. Lovely, lovely. I've wanted to pull off this look, too, but every time I put it on I get too nervous to rock it! Le sigh.

  21. I looooove a good peekaboo tattoo! I got a tiny heart on my shoulder under my bra strap for that very purpose! Most people don't know I have it unless they see me in a swim suit. :)

  22. I have a very large tattoo on my belly that rarely gets seen. I think it would look kinda weird through a sheer top. I like your look though!

  24. hidden tattoos are the coolest and yours is a beast..i can't believe that thing doesn't just burst through every top, the colors are amazing! i hear you on the bikini..i feel so exposed, i guess i'm modest in that way. also,i want this lip color!!

  29. for you this look seems so simple and dressed down, but it's casual cute!

  30. Your tattoo is gorgeous, Keiko. It adds a kind of mysterious allure to catch glimpses of under a sheer blouse like that.

  31. This is one of the most nicely done tattoos I have ever seen! Love that its original artwork. Not sure how long ago you got this but the colors so absolutely perfect and vibrant!

  37. I absolutely LOVE your geisha tattoo! Although I'd never get one myself, the concept of how they do it is too creepy to me, not to mention the idea that it's permanent... (or it leaves, but with an ugly scar). If it wasn't for the pain, I'd get a Chinese symbol on my hip or on my lower back, perhaps love, luck or hope.
    Love,
    S

  43. Your tattoo is gorgeous! What a beautiful piece of art.

  44. Oh my that tattoo is so cleverly positioned!! I love the simplicity of the outfit. That top is made to stand alone! And it's not too sheer to be considered having everything hanging all out :P

    ReplyDelete
  45. This is a lovely casual look. I love the aysmmetrical detail of the back. It turns what would otherwise be a drab outfit into a little something special. And the tattoo looks wonderful!

  47. I have a large tattoo on my upper thigh and I like that it's only visible in shorts & swimsuits. I can keep it completely hidden if I want. Lovely.
