These are my first tattoos. I got them at the same time about 4 months after my husband and I got married. Some people ask why I would do this, but just tell them that if anything were to happen, I have a few choice things I would use to cover it with. This is on my lower back. Done at Randy Adams Tattoo Studio 12-97.
This is my second tat. This one came about due to a group of friends from work calling me up one night saying that they were going to get tats. They asked if I wanted to come along. We were like a caravan in there. One right after the other. Out of the 8 of us that went, 7 of us ended up getting tats that night. It was Martin Luther King Jr. day 2001 at Randy Adams Studio. This piece is on my upper back just below my neck.
This is my most recent and favorite. The art work is original and inspired by Nirvana's third CD, "In Utero". This is basically the cover of that CD without the angel's guts and anatomy. I love this piece and I love Nirvana more. R.I.P. Kurt Cobain..This piece is on my right shoulder and was done at the Berry Street Tattoo Studio in Fort Worth 10-2001.
Just another view of my back..
My right eyebrow is also pierced courtesy of Randy Adams Studio.
I have more to add to the collection. I got 2 tatoos last year. I got a pagan protection symbol on the back of my neck and I got the Chinese symbol for "older sister" on my left shoulder. As soon as I can I will get some pics up.
