Ties that Bind....



I got this tattoo some months ago now.
.
Its an ampersand......
.
For anyone who said "what's an ampersand?" (beleive me there's been many) its the symbol used in place of the word "and".
.
If you hit "shift" and "7" simultaneously on your keyboard that's what I'm talking about.
.
Albeit mine is a bit fancier.
.
For those of you who don't know, I'm a twin with the amazing Jodes from Platinum Evil.
.
Being a twin you're constantly connected by an and - "Sarah AND Jodie" or "Jodie AND Sarah".
.
We thought it would be a good idea to be connected by an and not just verbally, but symbolically too.
.
But different designs in different body locations.
.
Identical tattoos on identical twins seemed a bit too creepy for us.
.
I adore it.....my mother however says I look like cheap sl*t.
.
I say nuts to her.

I think it's stunning - been working up the courage to get a tattoo myself for sometime now, but am still too scared to make the appointment! My mother too will probably say I look like a slurry but oh well.

Love your blog by the way!!

OH MY GOD this is so bizarre I had a dream about a week and a half ago that I got a tattoo of an ampersand.

Everyone I told about the dream asked what it was.

In my dream the artist fucked it up and actually put "a n d" on my arm, as well as a whole bunch of other random stuff that was on the tattoo flash card? So weird.

Now I'm scared it's some kind of sign that I shouldn't get a tattoo because the artist might fuck it up.

Ace tattoo though!

It looks soooo good! I really like it!

I want to pluck up the courage and get one done although I'm underage to be able to get a tattoo. But I've always thought they look the opposite of slutty - aslong as they're on the right person, if you know what I mean? + Did it hurt alot?
