7 Irritations Only Women With Tattoos Will Understand

There  is no better permanent self-expression than a well-done tattoo. Of course, they’re not for everyone; kind of like blue lipstick isn’t for everyone, but do we say anything to THOSE people.. no.. we look away. As women are becoming more and more liberated (or trying), tattoos are becoming even more acceptable in modern society (not that we care).

I am definitely far from “tatted up”, but I do have a few tattoos and it’s enough to have gathered some knowledge on what it’s like to be a 2015 woman with some super cool body art.


Here are the biggest irritations only women with tattoos will understand:

  • Being Told “You’re Gonna Regret That”

Chances are we’re not going to “regret that” and even if we do.. let us deal with that later on. We got these tattoos because we loved them and wanted them on us permanently; that’s a big commitment that we probably thought out.

  • Having Older People Gawk At You In Public

    **Bonus Irritation: They Talk Loud Enough for You to Hear Them Insult You

Nothing better then being in line to grab a coffee, looking over and seeing a few middle-aged people whispering to each other while obviously staring (and sometimes pointing) at your tattoos. Sometimes you even get the added bonus of them talking purposefully loud enough for you to hear that they HATE your tattoo and that they would NEVER do that. Sorry we can’t please you, Carol.

  • When Your Color Tattoos Clash With Your Outfit

Not a huge deal, but can lead to a little bit of irritation. Your yellow little bird on your arm may turn you into a walking McDonald’s advertisement with that new red dress, but worse things have happened.

  • Having To Cover Up For Work

Most shops, restaurants and companies aren’t about you showing off your ink at work. It’s getting better, but most of the time we are forced to cover. This is especially bad if you have a tattoo in the middle of your arm or leg (long sleeves in the summer is always an awful idea). But, hey, Urban Outfitters is always hiring? Don’t worry gals, it’ll all be better soon.

  • When Everyone Asks To See It + What It Means

If you have never been asked this, you probably don’t have a visible tattoo.. in which case you are kind of lucky. Yes you can see it. No it didn’t hurt that bad. That’s cool you wanna get one too.

Assuming it means something is kind of annoying for the people who just wanted some nice art. A lot of the time, people do have an explanation, but it also doesn’t mean they want to tell you about it: It could be personal!

Thank you for the compliments, but we are sick of explaining.

  • People Reminding You That “Men Don’t Like Women With Tattoos”

*Flips Hair*

Is there any water in that pool? I can’t even tell cause its so SHALLOW!!!!!

But, really, if you’re that big of a tool…. keep on walking.

People Assume That You Must Be A Lesbian, Do Drugs and Not Go To School.

If you are a lesbian who does drugs and happens to not go to school, DO YOU, BOO. But, often people think that if you have a tattoo at least one of these must be true. I’m sorry that my portrait of my dead cat leads you to these assumptions!

MET Gala Fashion 2015 – The Good and The WHAT

The time has come again for fashions finest to showcase their work on celebrities at the Met Gala 2015. The event, which was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, took place May 4th with an interesting theme: China: Through the Looking Glass.

Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, and more took to their Twitter and Instagram accounts early Monday morning to announce their excitement for the evening.

Alexa Chung, Emma Roberts, and Ellie Goulding showed off their hair and makeup via their personal Instagram accounts on the way to the Gala. Ellie captioned her photo “On my way to a low key event”. Well, girl, you’ve got us Starry Eyed.

If there is one time of year to make a big fashion statement and get some recognition.. THIS IS IT.

Who can forget VERY PREGNANT Kim’s floral print dress that stole the red carpet and kept people talking for weeks (not necessarily in a good way)?

Kim wasn’t the only one from the Kardashian clan to show up to the event. Kris and Kendall were both present.

Kendall looked like a green goddess in her Calvin Klein gown.

With huge names and huge fashion at this event, It was hard to choose the best of the night, but I narrowed it down to three BEAUTIFUL ladies:

First, Lady Gaga came and stunned us with her Alexander Wang gown. She not only looked awesome as usual, but she COMPLETELY worked the theme. Looking like a geisha queen, she shut down the red carpet.

And who could even pretend to ignore the Queen B? She came in and caused a buzz with her Givenchy dazzling, sparkling gown. It covered just enough for us to truly appreciate that unearthly body that Beyoncé owns. I was expecting something great from her, and she exceeded my expectations!

I mean…. Just look at her stance. Completely gorgeous look. Beyoncé: 1,000 points. Everyone Else… 0.

The last look that earned a spot in this top 3 is the lovely Jessica Chastain. She was a golden goddess shining like a star in the sky. Although she didn’t quite work the theme into her look, she has classic Hollywood style DOWN. She is a true beauty and it shows in her Givenchy gown.

Now for the not-so-good:

Cara Delevigne normally works red carpet events, but last night she certainly did not stand out as a best dressed nominee. She came in a simple, black ensemble by Stella McCartney. She was covered in painted on tattoos of asian-inspired flowers to incorporate the theme, but it did not make up for the outfit, girl.

Is that a can of Green Tea Arizona? Oh, wait no.. It’s Cara Delevigne.

The next to make the list is the one, the only Sarah Jessica Parker. She can normally own the fashion scene, I mean she was on Sex and The City, come on. But, last night, although she totally worked in the theme (she basically became the theme) it was a bit of a nightmare. She looked a bit horrifying.

Just too much going on, SJP.

Overall, it seems the Gala was a success with memorable looks to last us until next year. What can they surprise us with next?
