You know what they say about tattoos: once you pop, you can’t stop. I got my first (and only, for now) tattoo 4 years ago, a small paper plane on my left inner arm and hadn’t thought about getting another one since then. It was simply because that was my dream tattoo and after that I didn’t want to get another one just for the sake for inking my body. But almost exactly 4 years later, my mind is flowing with ideas and I can’t think of anything else. I don’t think I, being a 5’3″ girl, am a big enough canvas for so many gorgeous tattoos. Nor have I that big of a bank account.

I have never liked too distinct tattoos like animals or names or tiny little figures. The reason I chose the paper plane is simply because it was geometric but meaningful enough. Before I swore that I would only ever get teeny tiny tattoos that wouldn’t bother me even in the future but lately I’m very much drawn to the idea of tattoo as an artwork.
I mean why should I deprive myself from a lifelong joy of being a unique paint job when there are artists out there like Alice Carrier who is the master of flowers or Chaim Machlev who is simply a god that draws lines on bodies like I can’t even draw on paper or Kamil Czapiga who is unbelievably talented in dimensions and detail? I also have another name but I’m keeping it a secret until I get mine.
