Do You Have A Tattoo?

Do You Have A Tattoo?

Here is Brooks’ weekly blog…

If you have never seen me or met me then you probably don’t know I am covered in tattoos.  They start on my shoulder and go all the way down to my feet.

I got my first tattoo when I was 17, just 2 weeks before my 18th birthday.  I got the stereotypical tattoo for a guy of a cross with wings behind it, angels on the side and hands holding it all on my right arm.  Three weeks later I got my second tattoo on my left arm.  Once I got that one I knew I was hooked and haven’t stopped since.

After getting those tattoos, I told myself I would never go below the shirt line so I could always cover my tattoos.  Well, that didn’t last long.  As my third tattoo was on my forearm.

When someone asks me how many I have, I am to the point of saying, “I have no idea.”  I have tattoos ranging from a grilled cheese with legs chasing a tater tot, a telitubbie, and even Betty White.  I have a wide variety of tattoos and love them all.

I don’t think I will ever stop getting tattoos as I have an appointment for next month.  I am getting a tattoo for my daughter.

Tattoos are apart of my life and don’t define me.  I am ok with being judged because of my tattoos and all the stereo types that come with it.  Just know because you have a tattoo doesn’t make you a bad person.  It makes you an expressive person who isn’t afraid to show their feelings.
