Sure, I have a Marilyn Monroe/ death skull and a quote by her on my right arm. On my hands I have a heart with lifeline, a small heart on my pinky finger, and a Texas state with the loan star on my ring finger. In addition to those hand ones, I have my kid's names in a Hibiscus Flower on my wrist. I also got a tattoos in dedication to my husband and my grandparents. Once I even went to get tattoos with my cousins and now we have matching quotes. I can't list all of them, these are just a few! I like to express myself through tattoos, and luckily I've been able to go to one particular tattoo artist whom I love and have been with for many years.

Any advice to someone who wants to get tattoos?
