Art itself is a beautiful thing. The fact we have the ability to wear art on our body and hold it with us everyday is both BEAUTIFUL and amazing.
I have three walking master pieces, each special in their own way. The fact that you yourself have the voice of what goes on your body is not only empowering a means of self reflection - what is important to you, what would you want to have on your body forever ? Now with tattoo removal there is a temporary aspect to tattooing, but if I was you, I would be sure you know what you want and research who and where you are going to make it happen!
Minka Sicklinger, should be an artist on your list for your first or your next tattoo. Preciously tattooing at East Side Ink, this Australian beauty I had the honor of having her draw a very significant cardinal tattoo in memory of someone very special to me. She also performed an amazing 5 hour tattoo in my presence : A Tarot Card of DEATH, from conception to execution: FLAWLESS.
See some of her work at East Side Ink , NYC and more: if you like what you see I STRONGLY suggest reaching. Enjoy.
