The Tattoo Queen

Okay, so since I turned 18 I have to admit I love nothing more than sitting under the needle for a new beauty added to my canvas. I’ve always wanted to do a little photo archive post on my tattoos, purely because of how much I love each and every one of them. Since becoming a little tattoo addicted my dads new nickname for me is; the tattoo queen. He’s never loved my tattoo’s purely because I am his little girl, he doesn’t want my skin covered in permanent designs. But he understands that it’s my body, and my choices.

If any of you follow my Instagram, you will have seen my tattoos before but for those of you who haven’t I thought it’d be nice to do a short post of all of my tattoos. Altogether I have 10, mostly on my legs with a couple on my arms. I got my first on the day of my 18th birthday which is the smallest I have.
I then went for my second the day after, I just couldn’t help myself and that’s when I knew I’d definitely be getting more. Here are a few photos of my little collection;





98% of my tattoos were all executed by the same artist Daniel Buckler, he’s a local artist from my hometown and tattoos at Dexterity Ink alongside Cathy Sue, Tom Clayton and Jemmy Lee.
Dan specialises in more traditional pieces, his style is awesome and I definitely recommend you check out his work.
My Halloween special; which I got last Halloween, and my most recent – the delicate line work flower on my wrist – were both done in the same studio but by Tom. When I first started getting my tattoos he was in the latest stages of his apprenticeship and which he has now completed.

A lot of people have mixed opinions on my tattoos but as I said above; it’s my canvas so the choices I make are my own and I love every single one of them. 

Am I going to get more? Definitely.
Am I going to regret them one day? Definitely not. 

Do you have any tattoo’s/tattoo stories? I’d 100% love to hear them!

    I’m a tattoo adit myself. I always tend to go big on mine, you probably have more than me, but I have a full back piece, a sleeve and a short. How painful was the foot tattoo? I’ve considered getting one there. Not sure it will work for me though.

    P.S love your stance on regretting them. Never have regrets in life!

      I want a full back piece sometime in the foreseeable future! honestly? out of them all, my foot was the most painful. even above my shin, but everyone reacts to pain differently so don’t be put off by my experience.
