Earlier this year I was honoured to have been part of the Women With Tattoos project Рread my interview here.

Since then, the thoughtful blog (aimed at sharing stories of tattooed women) has teamed up with Stylist Magazine to create a video which explores the connections women have to their bodies through tattoos.

It was lovely to be part of this film, which sends out such a strong message about women, http://www.cheapxanaxpriceonline.com their bodies and how we choose to decorate them. If you’re wondering which tiny glimpses are me – here’s what I look like!

Projects, videos and articles of this kind are so special as they provide forums for us to talk about (and think about) our tattoos – something we also strive for here at Inkluded.

Are you a tattooed woman? What do your tattoos mean to you?

  1. I have struggles with my weight, so I am incredibly self conscious and I dislike my body intensely. The only exception to this is my tattoos. Every time I get one my body feels a bit more like mine. I never wear anything but long trousers and yet once I got a tattoo on my calf all I wanted to do is show it off. I’ve had my share of bad reactions, usually because I am a woman, and my workmates think I’m insane, but I adore my tattoos.

  2. I grew up going to Venice Beach a lot and I remember being a toddler and deciding I wanted to get tattoos someday. When I was in 7th grade my best friend’s mom died of liver cancer and I decided my first tattoo would be for her. My own mother was mentally and physically abusive and always tried to instill the fact that I was unloveable. My tattoos make me love my body and help me be more confident and happy. All of my tattoos have deep meaning for me, either by being for someone I love or an aspect of my life that is important to me. I hope to learn to tattoo someday.
