As society grows more accepting of body modification, more people are taking to getting it done. I am someone who has had piercings for a long time, and always happy enough to get them as a spur of the moment thing, although the reason for this is the fact it is isn't permanent. Out of the 15 piercings I've had on my body only 4 exist now and you wouldn't be aware the others even existed. Back in July I got my first tattoo, I knew what I wanted and I've wanted it for a long time so to finally get it done just seemed right.

I am still the same amount of in love with it as I was the day I had to it done, and that's because I thought about it first. I went to book my second tattoo based on a design I had seen online and liked for a long time, but then when I had booked it and it came to getting it done I decided it wasn't right for me and although I lost money over it I am so glad I didn't go through with it. I have friends who have had tattoos on their body done by someone who was trained or had little experience and now this is stuck on their body forever and I also know of people who have their partners name tattooed on them and regret that when they break up, not to stay you will break up.



I love tattoos and I know so many people who have them and they all look amazing, and I am super happy they do and in most peoples cases they do regret at least one tattoo they've had done and I don't want to be in that situation. I want to love every single one of my tattoos and that is why a huge thought process goes into every single one of them and I am okay with that, whether it takes me years to get my next one at least I'll love it. I am yet to meet many people who have had a tattoo whilst drunk and instantly regretted it, you see people on the holiday programmes who get them done whilst they are abroad and very drunk of a person or something ridiculous they have no idea why they got it and that's stuck there for life. If you are yet to see many bad tattoos I totally recommend watching Tattoo Fixers which has enough bad tattoos on that you don't even need to make that mistake.

I am all for taking risks when it comes to life, but I think it is totally important to remember how permanent tattoos are, and how it shouldn't be something you do on a whim.
