Punky Princess at Heart

12 Sep

Back in the day, I mean when I was about 13 or so in the throes of adolescence, which we all remember so fondly (NOT) I was inspired by my cousin (who recently passed) and her/my friends to start dressing as I guess you would term it now, goth or punk.

Honestly though I’d rather have my daughter dress like I did then like a ho-bag or someone out of a rap video. I am not knocking the hip hop, I do love me some Jay-Z, T.I., and Swizz Beatz, so there! Anyway back to the point (yes, there is one), I have certainty tamed down my look over the years, mostly I think because I am now comfortable with who I am and blah, blah, blah, but I have not lost my fondness of the edgy-ness. I have a nose ring, be it small, but it’s still there and 3 tattoos, nothing super big or extravagant. I also still prefer the dark nail polishes and would have my hair brighter and more funky if salons weren’t such money pits.

So anyway, I’ve still want some more tattoos, but there are a few issues that stand in my way #1 the Duke it not too keen on them, not that I usually care what he thinks, normally that would just make me want to do it 100 times more, but in this case I do, esp since he is the one that has to look at my body and let’s face it that is not looking super fine at the moment, #2 they are EXPENSIVE! ( and I am inherently cheap), #3 there is still a prejudice against people who have them and since I work in an office environment it would not be looked upon favorably (unless I can keep them hidden). But what I think I’ve decided that I want is (if I ever get the nerve and money) is a half sleeve, you know like when half your arm is all tatted up, but it doesn’t go past your elbow.

Okay, so that’s great, but what the hell would I want on it. Well after lots of thought, I am 99.9% sure that I want some sort of Alice in Wonderland theme. I have that whole movie memorized (yes, there is def something wrong with me, but that will take up a whole other post). It’s been one of the only consistent things that I’ve liked since I was a kid. Here are some images that have inspired me (yes, it’s the Disney version):

I was all happy with my decision until I was at my friend’s house this weekend and she has a bunch more tattoos and tells me that she’d like another of her girls’ birth flower, they are twins. I’m like damn that’s a great idea. I would love to have a tattoo of the heir’s birth flower.The heir’s birth flower (yes, I had to look it up thank you google) is a larkspur?? Yeah, I’m not much of a botanist, but they generally look like this:

MMMM pretty cool, so here I am back to square one with what I want to do. LOVE YOU LADY F, but thanks for putting me back to square one!
