So, I've realized something. Just now. Just recently. I was looking through the stuff I've pinned on Pintrest, and I recently added a new board exclusively for tattoos, entitled Someday. > Le board de tattoos <3 <  Check it out if you're interested. If not, carry on.

But I have realized that it is potentially a blessing in disguise, not being able to get a tattoo right now. Because, you see, I really want one. Actually, I really want several. But mayhaps this not getting one at this point in time will end up being a good thing. Because now I can think about what I want. Dream about it. And really find what will be the best tattoo to get.

It will happen. It is definitely going to happen. But, if I look on the bright side of things, and be okay with waiting, I will have tattoos that are lovely, that mean something to me. Part of the reason I love tattoos is that they are there for pretty much ever. And if it's something there forever, I want something I love, something lovely, something that means something to me. A little bit of pretty to brighten up my day on shitty days. And who doesn't love that?

I keep seeing people post/pin/have a status/tweet that "People ask me why I don't have a tattoo, and I reply, 'Why would you put a bumper sticker on a Ferrari'". Okay, first off, if you are a Ferrari, you are implying that there are different types of cars, and you are a high end, expensive, and fancy car. Second, you make it sound, a tiny bit, like those who do have tattoos are a lesser car. Like they're an old Impala or some junker car. The people I've heard say this, I know they don't mean it that way. But sometimes we need to think about what our words are saying, even more than what we're saying. Because they don't always match up. Okay, and now thirdly. Tattoos are not comparable to bumper stickers. Bumper stickers are things you stick on your car, and they can come off. Tattoos are more like the paint. Some people leave the paint of their car the color it was originally. Others change it, or maybe only change some of it. Maybe they get a cool gradient effect going. But tattoos are NOT bumper stickers.

I know not everyone likes/wants tattoos. I understand that. I don't like brussel sprouts. They're icky. But that just means, I'm not going to go out and get some. I mean, if it's something you don't want, why the hell would you want to go out and get it? But I also try not to complain, or defend myself. I don't like them, but I don't need to explain why I would never put them in my body.

Tattoos are beautiful. Tattoos are art. Tattoos are a little something that stays with you till you are in the grave. And I love them for that. You don't have to like them, you don't have to want them. But maybe you shouldn't post stuff about why you'd never get one, or why they're icky and gross. Because honestly, as someone who desperately wants them, and is just waiting till she moves out, those are slightly offensive to me. I mean, it's just something I've spent my whole fuckin life wanting, but no, you go right ahead and say why they are worthless and you would never get one. Bazinga.

Okay. I'm done my little rant. In conclusion, I feel a bit better about waiting for a tat of my own, and please stop saying why it's stupid to get a tattoo. Kaythxbai

I'm trying to add more pictures again! I seriously want a little dog like this. He's so cute!! Though I just want a dog in general... 
I love pickup lines, so these under roos just make me happy. Though apparently they're from Victoria's Secret. This might condemn me as a hipster, but I feel like Victoria's Secret is a tad too mainstream to shop at. I'd rather get muh underroos from my favorite stores.  I dunno why. But, main point, pick up lines FTW.

And yes. More Tom. <3 He's just so wonderful.  
And lastly, this afternoon, I'm making cupcakes!!! Super excited for that :{D
