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!
