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.
