Tattoos

Talking with my brother today on the subject of tattoos and he goes, “Well…Why do you have to have something to show everyone? You have things with mom and dad, in your memories. Why does ink portray it better?” and my response to him is, “I don’t know, it’s just my thing. But I like to have meaning behind what I get. And the most important thing I have is my family. I don’t just want a butterfly because its “cute” or God forbid someone’s name, ew. I know tattoos are frowned upon by a lot of people/businesses but they are becoming more accepted. Slighty. Lol, that’s where you and I differ, you look at someone covered in tattoos and think like “ew,” or “trashy.” I look at them at still just see a person, I think it’s cool, tattoos are memories too.” And I don’t know I was just really happy with that, I mean its the truth…

If you could be anyone, would you choose to be yourself?
