It's all about the Ink.... (Part 1)

When I was a little girl my Uncle Bob was one of my favorite uncles. He was, without a doubt the "black sheep" of his family and for some reason this totally fascinated me. Even at a young age I was naturally drawn to the "bad boy" and I'm not really sure why.

Uncle Bob was a rough and rowdy, career Navy Man. Always pushing the envelope, always seeing just how far he could go and he had a different tattoo from every single place he had ever visited. He was covered from head to toe with only his face remaining clear. One of my favorite things to do was sit with him and hear the story of each of his "pieces of art". He was the die-hard Navy man with the clipper ship tattooed across his whole chest. If he moved just right...the waves would roll. Fascinating...absolutely fascinating.

I guess it would come as no big surprise that when I grew up and joined the Navy, (long after dear Uncle Bob had sailed on into the next adventure), I was determined to get myself a tattoo. I just needed the right nudge to give me the courage. My brother-in-law, (who at the time was my CPO and my softball coach), finally gave me the nudge. Just barely 18 I found myself on a wild weeknight "road trip" to Savannah, GA to get my very first tattoo.

Don't think I'll ever forget walking into that shop with the hugest of butterflies in my belly, and a shaking hand reaching up to pull the smallest of designs off the wall. It's a pair of "shooting stars" tattooed on my left breast. I suppose I thought if you were there, you were seeing "stars" anyway. To this day, it is the ONLY tattoo I have on my body that came off "the wall". Though I love it for sentimental reasons...I am getting ready to cover it up with one of my own designs.

Why? Why do I sit in a chair and let someone punch needles into me over and over again? Why do I have no problem with this when the thought of going to a Doctor for a double pen shot for strep throat is enough to make me hide under covers? I don't know. I only know that it adds another piece of the puzzle that is me, and until my masterpiece is complete I will continue. It is perhaps, my quiet rebellion against those who would judge me only by my outside looks without taking the time to look deeper into my soul.

To date I have eight. All of them with a story, all of them a piece of me. They are all very feminine, and very much a reflection of me. I have had little old ladies tell me they are beautiful, and, I have had other's tell me they make me look trashy. The beauty of it of that it doesn't matter what other's think - they are mine.

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

Wrote this one for you, btw... to your reply

profuse Impish giggles
make testicles wiggle
and wail in the night
like a hound

they jump up and tire
like an oceanfront wire
and maggie makes
loud barking sounds!

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

I have one, a custom design. I'd love to get another one, but not sure what or where. It takes me a while to decide.

I had an 87 year old woman come in to the office when I was working as the mayor's secretary. She conducted her business with me and when she was done she said "I want to see the rest of your tattoo." Mine is over my left breast. I pulled my dress aside and showed her. We talked about it for probably 15 or 20 minutes. She loved it. I told her where I had it sone, she smiled shyly and said she was too old, but if she was 50 years younger she might just do it. Made my day.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

And Daph...I've seen your's and it is indeed very beautiful. I too love it when the little old ladies stop and ask. Most love them...most love the story's that go with them. It's the proof in how far we've come as women that they are accepted on us now. Don't you think?

I too would love to hear those stories...and I'm sure your lovers very much appreciate gazing upon your body and the art that is part of it, and hearing you tell your tales....

Seek...if they do not appreciate them...they are more than likely not right for me anyway...right? Thanks for the words of encouragement.

Hey I slept over and still didn't get to see all eight

I even played with your pussy for hours

Geez what's a man have to do

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo

impish_pixie replies on 4/23/2006 8:39 pm:
Luke Darling...all you had to do was ask? I mean really...if I let you play with my pussy I'll certainly let you see my tats...(Good God're gonna have people thinking all kinds of things...) (giggle)

Glad to see you "out" again... **big hugs & kisses**
