In the pinup-rockabilly world, tattoos are common -almost the norm I would say. I have one on my lower back (AND NO ITS NOT A TRAMPSTAMP. I HATE that word). I have one on my inner ankle, and I also have one that starts on my left shoulder blade and goes up and around to a half sleeve. I only started getting tattooed a few years ago. When I was in college and it was the thing to do, I didn’t get any, mostly out of fear of my parents’ reactions and because I didn’t want some random thing I wouldn’t like years later. I have always really loved tattoos and as an artist, I finally got over my fear of my parents (in my 30’s no less!). I now have several and just got my latest one touched up a bit yesterday. As usual, it has me thinking about my next one. (lol). I also teach yoga, so I am thinking of a old school pinup girl doing a handstand. Just not sure where to put it yet. Here is my inspiration –
