I never considered getting a tattoo until I saw one on a friend. I had no idea she even had one herself until she wore a bathing suit to my pool party. She had always had it covered up, and it was not something she would bring up because it was just part of who she was rather than something to give her attention. I really liked it though, and I asked her where she had it done. She told me that an artist at a Costa Mesa tattoo shop had inked her just a few years ago, and she gave me the contact info to look at their website.
I went there and was really amazed at what I saw. I had always considered tattoos something that bikers or military men did. I just have not seen a lot on the women that I am around on a regular basis. I was really impressed with the different pictures that I saw of people with tattoos. There are some that I would not get if a person paid me, but there were quite a few that I really liked too.
When I found out that the tattoo artists can do any kind of ink, as long as I have a legible picture of it, I was excited. I have been a fan of a certain comic strip ever since I was a little kid, and I thought it would be really cool to get the main character tattooed on either my arm or leg. I didn’t want a big tattoo at all, but I wasn’t sure if one could be done in the size I wanted. I went to the shop where she had hers done, and I showed them what I wanted. Well, I walked out of the shop with a game plan. That was two weeks ago, and I have received so many compliments on my tattoo!
