Some people work towards expressing their identity in every way possible. For many it includes dressing in specific clothing styles, wearing a certain scent, or even an interesting and different hairstyle. But what about tattoos?

This is an interesting topic. Not sure how you feel about tattoos, but I LOVE THEM. I see them as a form of art and character to our bodies. Its a way people express themselves, share stories, honor others, and there are many other reasons why people get tattoos.

I absolutely despise when people say "well what are you going to do when your 60 and hate looking at them. What are you going to do when your kids start wanting tattoos?" Well, when I'm 60, a lot of my tattoos will never show (i'm not going to be rocking a bikini at 60). As long as my kids think through their tattoo choices, I'm okay with them getting them.
I think tattoos can be fun and expressive.

I knew what I wanted, to a certain degree. The tattoo had to be a "part of me and my character" by telling a story. My entire life has been a story, so this tattoo was not going to be any exception. I thought about it long and hard. I went to a designer that a biker friend of mine had used and visited with him three times before he "got it right."
My tattoo is on my left butt cheek. It had to be discreet and classy because I am a business woman. I had the design of a Harley wheel as the base, with smoke, flames, & a heart. The word, "Desire" completes me. I love it!
