Tattooed Sunday!

Hi darlings!

I got my first tattoo this past Thursday!  I’ll take some pictures once it passes the peely stage, but if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@nicetobelieve on both) you might’ve seen it already.  Honestly, I have roughly no tolerance for pain, but it was bearable largely because I absolutely loved the design.

So today, I’m going to introduce you to some of my favorite tattooed bloggers!  Still a Lazy Sunday links post, but this time, a bit more specific.  A’ight?

&  First up is Adrian of Adrian Loves Owls!  I love love love her sleeves, and her personal style is so fantastic paired with her tattoos!  Her aesthetic is a lovely mix of traditional, sweet, classic shapes – she’s a vintage allstar – and the edginess her ink and piercings bring.

& Danielle Hampton of Sometimes Sweet is one of the first ladies I reference when people are like, “Tattoos are so unfeminine!  You don’t want to look like that!”  I’m like, “Oh really?  Why don’t I want to look like her?”  Her Tattoo Tuesday feature is amazing, and her little son is probably going to grow up and look like Ryan Gosling.  So just go visit her.  Capiche?

& Not only do I love Kyla’s layouts, but I also love her body art!  She’s such a beautiful lady with gorgeous tattoos.  We have in common that we’re friendly introverts, and if you’ve ever wanted to read about what it’s like to have an anxiety disorder, I highly, highly  recommend her post.  It’s an issue near and dear to my heart, and I think she’s very brave to speak about it!  (If you think you have an anxiety issue and would like to talk about it, you are always more than welcome to e-mail me – I have one and am learning the ropes of living with it day to day.)


Do you have tattoos?  Are you dreaming on up, saving for one, or maybe even regretting one?  Please share!

    I have 16! Warning: They are addictive!

    It’s interesting when you start because some people decided to use them as a themed decoration (ie one style to decorate their whole body cohesively) and some choose to do it patchwork style (piece by piece, each one meaning something new). I chose patchwork, making a decision that I wouldnt regret anything I chose to get tattooed because no matter if I grew out of a phase, each tattoo represents a time in my life that will always be a part of me.

    So exciting!

  • Congrats on your new ink! I have two tattoos and I love them. One is on the inside of my ankle and it’s a small ipu heke with a maile lei wrapped around it (I used to dance hula). The artist tells me it’s still the most detailed tat he’s ever done. The other is on my thigh and it’s a unique Hawaiian design – that one came about because of an affair with a … well, doesn’t matter except that it’s a beautiful design and a lovely memory. Thanks for the links to some really inspiring sites!

  • I honestly can’t decide weather or not I want a tattoo! I used to allays think I would never want one not because I dislike tattoos or anything like that but because personally, I always liked the idea of being a clean slate in a way. But recently I’ve really liked the idea of getting a cow tattoo! It sounds really weird but the sort of tattoo I’m thinking of would be really cool!

    I just can’t deciiiiiide!

    Can’t wait to see the pictures!

    I don’t have one yet, but already know I want quotation marks on my wrists since I’m a writer. Now have to go find you on Twitter to see your photos! Congrats-looking forward to joining the club eventually 🙂

  • I have the tree of life for my grandparents on my lower leg (my mom and sister have the same one)… but I definitely want to get another, I’m just not sure yet what I want to get. I LOVE yours.. I definitely just went and looked you up on instagram to see your pictures.

      Thank you so much! I’ll have to find you and check yours out also! That’s awesome that the three of you have matching tattoos. Did you get them at the same time? How much did it hurt on your leg? My arm hurt quite a bit haha.
