Drop Dead Gorgeous

Tuesday, September 1, 2015

This little two piece getup isn't my usual style. It's black. It's kind of punky. It's covered in slightly offensive graphics. But I have to say that I really kind of love it. I mean, it's weird and kind of ugly, which fits my usual criteria pretty well, so I guess it counts. I was super excited for it to come in the mail, and I think I'll be able to remix the top with some jeans, so overall I think it was a good, though slightly out of character, wardrobe choice. Also, I have my arms up in like all but one of these photos...so just ignore that.

Recently someone took one look at me and exclaimed, "You have so many tattoos!" I thought it was a little weird because I only have four tattoos, and I definitely have more cooking up in my brain. I'm most certainly not covered in them, and with pants on you can only see one, maybe two if my top shows my back. I sometimes wonder if being as small as I am has kind of limited me to the number of tattoos I can have without looking completely saturated. While I love ladies who are head-to-toe in them, that's never an aesthetic I've imagined for myself, which kind of limits me on how many I can get. It's interesting to think about. I'm only 22 and what if in my 60's I get this brilliant idea but my body is already mapped out the way I wanted it? Tattoos are a curious thing. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter if you'd like to chat in the comments below.

  1. I am kind of the same way... I have 5 tattoos including a half sleeve and know I will get more, but don't want to be covered in them. To me there is something sexy about the empty space between the tattoos.

    1. I completely agree! The empty space says just as much as the filled space! I know your struggle! Tattoos are just so addictive!

  2. I feel that way about just getting any tattoo on myself; I LOVE the way they look but I don't think it quite fits my personality or aesthetic to have one. Unless it's super, super delicate and mostly hidden. My husband and I talked about getting secret/hidden couple tattoos, but I don't even know how I'd do that or where it would go. So... who knows. Maybe someday I'll find a tattoo that "matches" me but till the. I'll just admire them on other people. (Also, I love this outfit. Even though it is a little out of character. You pull it off fantastically!)

    1. I totally get the tattoo thing! It took me like a year of decision making before I got my first one, and even then I had a mini post-tattoo freak out. But now I adore them all. And while every now and then I'm like, "oh jeez, I'm going to be that old lady with tattoos all over," I always stop to remind myself that people are so much more accepting now that it won't (or shouldn't) matter. But I totally get the aesthetics. Before every tattoo I still think crazily about how it'll affect certain clothing lines and such. Maybe someday you'll find the perfect place and artist to get one with your man. I think the idea is cute.

  3. I'm not into the head to toe tattoo look. I don't mind if that's what people are into, but it's definitely not for me. I like subtle tattoos, which unfortunately limits me to where I can get tattoos. I only have two small ones and already feel like I'm running out of spaces...lol. I really want to get one soon, but the issue is where to get it. I always think about how it will look on my wedding day.

    1. I totally get that! I've got four and I'm already panicking about future tattoos and space. I care a lot about placement with how certain garments and such will lay. I worried a lot abut my spine piece and it sticking out of the neckline of tops, if only I were taller and had more spine space!
