Skull Tattoos for Girls

When I decided to get a skull tattoo everyone was like, oh no, a skull?! Yeah, A taurus skull made of lace. Weird smiles and doubts on people’s faces, but I never cared, I knew exactly what I wanted.

But let’s look back….

Chinese sign-Courage

My tattoo story started when I was 17 kind of funny actually. I used to draw the chinese sign on my abdomen with an eyeliner and my dad said one day, hey that’s looks pretty cool. Hmmm, I thought why not get it for real. I found a place that did semi-permanent tattoos, like the cosmetic ones, so I told my parents that I want to get my chinese sign for real. They were like: you are crazy…. but then they signed my approval paper that I took with me when I got my tattoo scheduled. Done! But it never faded:))) Dad said: Semi-permanent you say… after 4 years it never faded…. Well, let’s make it a bit darker I said. So we both went to another tattoo salon and we got the same too, the one I have below the neck, on my spine.

It says Carpe Diem and people say it’s not for me because I am not spontaneous,  I never jump for things, but for me it means something else. Each of us have a personal vision upon life, I live mine as I wish, I hope you do too.

The signature on my right shoulder is actually my parent’s signature. I believe we are our parent’s signatures and grow from there into real humans. I am very grateful for how my parents brought me up, I am proud to  have them both!

The mandala taurus skull has a longer story…. I wanted a drawing, but I never get any tattoo that doesn’t have a meaning for me. I never wanted butterflies, flowers,  or any other girlish drawings, then it struck me.

My perfect tattoo that actually is me: fragile as lace, strong as a bull. It also reflects my passion for designing, using soft fabrics like lace mixed with though textures, here the bone horns. I had the whole idea, but couldn’t sketch a thing, and if I never wanted to design it in the first place. A year passed without finding any similar design to what I wanted. I couldn’t believe that there was no lace skull tattoo.

Then I had the best ever, Dushky, my talented friend came to the rescue. She made two designs for me and I picked the second one with minor adjustments that I did, still it’s 99% as she drew it. Absolutely perfect!

After 2 hours of work and almost 3 years of waiting I finally got my perfect skull tattoo, and yes it’s for girls.

A girlish skull that speaks about me.

How do you pick your tattoos? It just has to look good or does it have a meaning too?
