Let me tell you a story.
Many moons ago I thought about getting a tattoo. I was young (not to be patronising) and thought it would be cool and I’d be with the in crowd.
Back then tattoos seemed more of a novelty. Anyway I considered getting something random, literally it would have had no meaning behind it at all. No important date, name or song lyric. I was thinking completely random. A strawberry. A star. Something small and pretty and hidden on the hip. Something discreet and hidden. Just so I could be cool and say ‘yeah I’m inked’.
I remember all those years ago I walked into a random tattoo parlour in Peterborough and nearly booked in. There was something in the back of my mind however which was warning me. Call it intuition but I just wasn’t sure. For the first time in my life (at that time anyway), I made a sensible decision and left. Months later I dreamed of having a flower design tattooed around my ankle, but again it was just absent thinking.
Tattoos are just not for me. I’m a country girl who loves getting muddy on the farm and is fairly low maintenance. Instead of spending my money on inkings, I would prefer to stock up on luxe skincare and globetrot.
Do you regret having any tattoos? Are there any you are thinking of having? Or, are you like me and proud to be tattoo free? I’d love to know what you think…..
