A tattoo is an affirmation: that this body is yours to have and to enjoy while you’re here. Nobody else can control what you do with it.
—- DON ED HARDY, Douglas Kent Hall’s Prison Tattoos
Tattoos are like stories - they’re symbolic of the important moments in your life. Sitting down, talking about where you got each tattoo and what it symbolizes, is really beautiful.
I live my life to the fullest…with GOD…with guidance & love from my parents. They taught me how to be a good citizen, to love & respect others.
So THUS, ME having a tattoo doesn’t mean I’m rebellious, it’s part of my self expression & love for ART. My Parents & Friends didn’t judge me for that because they know the REAL me. (OPEN - MINDED people as well) So you guys/gals out there who think "WE" who are tattooed” are the so-called “BAD or whatever they think of us” (i know that “perception” was happened a longggggg time ago already but there will always be judgmental/small minded people around)…DON’T MIND THEM, it’s your LIFE & as long as you don’t hurt others for that and just as long as you also live your life right to the fullest!!!
P.S. I can’t blame those who thinks “BAD” for tattooed people because that was also my perception before when I was a kid, I’ve seen bad guys in the television & they had these tattoos so that’s what I think that tattoos are for bad people but when I grow up & started to appreciate things in life like arts, I then understand that it depends on your point of view or on how you look at it.
ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME :) We only live once so let’s make the best out of it, Appreciate all the blessings around u and SPREAD LOVE LOVE & LOVE~
