Questions Girls With Tattoos Are Tired Of Hearing

I have a few ink pieces on me, some hidden and some pretty visible. I always get asked for the translation or meaning, which I don't mind. But what annoys me is when certain strangers make snide comments about the answer they're given, and follow up with a whole list of sometimes uncomfortable questions.

I have a few ink pieces on me, some hidden and some pretty visible. I always get asked for the translation or meaning, which I don't mind. But what annoys me is when certain strangers make snide comments about the answer they're given, and follow up with a whole list of sometimes uncomfortable questions.

1. What Do Your Parents Think?

What am I 12?! Of course they can see these tattoos on my body, and of course I was probably yelled at for like 5 minutes and then it was accepted. Why does it matter what my parents think? Aren't you asking about my tattoo, on my body?

2. Why Would You Spend So Much Money On That?

It's something that is personal to me and holds great meaning, permanently! The best artists do charge more for bigger pieces and it's my investment, what's it to you?

3. Did It Hurt?

Needle and Skin. I'm sure all those shots as a child didn't hurt either. OF COURSE IT HURT! But it was a pain I was willing to handle.

4. Why?

Why are you even talking to me right now? Jeez.

5. But You're So Beautiful, Why Did You Ruin It All ?

So am I any less beautiful because I have ink on my skin now? I love my tattoos, they are a part of who I am. What are you trying to really tell me right now? My parents sometimes add " you will never get married now"....pssht marriage.
