I've been itching to get a new tattoo, but since it's something forever on my body, the process of choosing the art is not something I take lightly. I do have a pretty crappy tattoo from the day I turned 18; it was something my mom and I did together, so I don't regret it. But I did learn a couple of things: 1) maybe you shouldn't get tattooed when you're still a teenager, because you'll get something like "she wakes up lonely" tattooed on your back and 2) the tattoo artist is extremely important. I got my rib piece about six years ago and I still love it. It rarely sees the light of day, but I like that when I'm wearing something a little sheer or with cutouts, it peeks through. It's a colorful extension of me.

  3. i have a few tattoos on my arms (5, actually, weird) - and one on my rib cage, as well. but by far the most surprising one is the huge piece i have on my left thigh. whenever it peaks out from the bottom hem of a skirt or dress, i'm immediately interrogated. i've also been itching for a new piece, but i generally spend about a year or two marinating on an idea. it's such a process!!

  4. I love your rib piece, Keiko! I don't have any tattoos though I think if I had something special/meaningful in mind, I would consider it. Love this look too! The flower crown is so pretty.

  7. These pictures are gorgeous. I love the light in them! And your flower crown is so beautiful!
    I've always loved the look of tattoos, but I know that if I got something that permanent, it would have to be incredibly special because I'm too indecisive for permanent ink. :)

  8. Very thoughtful about the tattoos. I'm always surprised when people get tatooed on the fly.

    LOVE your tights.

  9. Could not agree more about the importance of taking your time with tattoos. I really want a rib piece but until I decide what I want for sure, it's a no-go!

  10. love this so much! your tat peeking through is fierce. i love to see just a slice sometimes..so interesting! perfect dress. i'm 26 and still dreaming up my first tattoo, i change my mind so often! going for timeless.

  11. Love the dress here! And I very much agree on the tattoos. I've got one from when I left my first boyfriend (he hated tattoos, so that was the first thing I got when I was single)... I don't regret it (two very small bows near my hip bones), but I do wish I would have chosen it more wisely. The second one is a pair of tailor's scissors on my left wrist. That was pretty spontaneous too, but I really love it and I studied fashion design, so tailoring will always be a part of me. I want to get one the ribs exactly where yours is, and I already know what it will be, but I still need to draw it and then rework it about a thousand times, think about it longer and if I still want it then, I'll get it. It's gonna be a big one, so I'll have to be very sure.

  12. That bag is so cute! I love the little tassles.

    I've got a spontaneous tattoo that I regret and now I'm taking my time to plan the next one! Wanting a more floral one on my shoulder.

  20. I've been itching for a new one as well! I'm pretty covered myself though.

    Love the ensemble, lady. It's lovely!

  21. I just went and take a look at your tattoo post.
    Your tattoo is incredibly beautiful! I really like the placement too, because it's so subtle en not 'in your face'.
    I am 20 years old now and I really really want a tattoo, I did a post on what kind of tattoos I liked a couple of weeks ago but I really want to think this through too !

    Also, it's my first tattoo ever and I'm afraid of needles, ha ha ha. So I will have to seriously get over that first.

    Love, Saar

  22. I love the little peek-a-boo detail on the waist of your dress! This outfit looks great!!

  36. You are so talented when it comes to the perfect mix of feminine meets edgy. I love the delicate dress paired with the funky tights and booties. The flower crown is a nice touch too! Since I've started seeing them pop up this fall, I 've really wanted to try rockin' a flower crown, but I'm just afraid it would look ridiculous on me. It look oh so fabulous on you though! :)

  37. I love the peek-a-boo mid riff detail! I (oddly) adore people who have 'secret' tattoos.

  43. I bet the text tattoo on your back could be easily covered up! I love the rib piece peeks out here. My favorite is when I wear something sheer and you can see my tats through the fabric :)

  44. That dress is so so gorgeous and I love the tattoo peeking out.

  45. I looove peek-a-boo dresses just for showing off my side tattoos, as well!
