My tattoos | EMILYXIONG

Hey everyone! Today I’ll be talking about my tattoos! The meanings and pricing! I won’t be talking about pain and the process of getting tattoos, etc.. because there are so many videos and blogs about it online. I have 5 tattoos! Lol. So, let’s get started!!

DISCLAIMER: this is MY body. I don’t care what others think of my tattoos, don’t make rude comments because you think these are too,”basic”. These are all meaningful to me and these are what I love and I do want more!

My first tattoo is this one: God is greater than the ups and downs : inside right forearm

I got this tattoo in January of 2016. I actually got this tattoo with my mom! LOL! (She’s a badass). This tattoo means God is greater than the ups and downs. I actually got this off of Pinterest, ( I know, dumb), but this really stuck with both my mom and I. A lot of people who are close to me probably don’t know this, but I’m actually very religious. This tattoo for both of us was $80 so, $40 each. Which in my opinion, is a very good price because if you know tattoos, they can get very expensive.

My second tattoo: Mountain tattoo: left putter forearm

This mountain tattoo doesn’t have any meaning to it. Lol, again, saw this on Pinterest and thought it looked super cool. I really want to say this has a meaning to it, but it really doesn’t. Haha. So lame. To be honest, this is probably my least favorite tattoo, lol. I wish the tattoo artist put this mountain a little closer to my hand because I think it looks kind of weird, but oh well. Can’t do anything about it anymore, I really wish I could go back and move this tattoo like on my back or the back of my arm. Haha, this tattoo costs $60, which I think is a bit expensive, but that is the minimum for that tattoo parlor. If you guys don’t know, most tattoo parlors have a minimum pricing and that place happened to be $60. but onto the next!

My third tattoo: roman numerals: left bicept.

This Roman numeral tattoo means a lot to me. This date is December 14, 2016. Which is my baptism date. Again, I’m very religious. Being baptized is something very special to me. If you guys are Christian, then you know what gettin baptized means. Lol. I actually originally wanted to get my parents anniversary date because I love my parents and really wanted to get a tattoo for them, but they were like,” we don’t even know when our actual anniversary is.” Pretty sure that was a lie because they didn’t want me to get another tattoo. Haha, but I’ve always wanted a tattoo on my inner bicep. I’ve always love that area for a tattoo. This one was $80.

For my last 2 tattoos, I actually got them together.

My fourth tattoo: Cross : inside of right ankle

Pretty simple. It’s a cross tattoo. Lol, again, I’m Christian. I’ve always wanted a cross tattoo. I actually really wanted this on my ring finger, but the tattoo artist warned me that finger tattoos don’t last very long. So I said, fuck it. Just put it on my ankle. Haha

My fifth tattoo: Come as you are quote: putter left lower leg

This tattoo says,” come as you are”. This quote was found on Pinterest. I really don’t know what the font this is in. Lol, this quote really stood out to me. It’s a self love quote, I’m really big on loving yourself. I lacked a lot of self confidence until 2015. I believe that everyone should love themselves before anyone else. It’ll just make you happier in the end if you are happy from within. This is by far my favorite tattoo.

These were both $60.

These are all my tattoos for now! Haha I can’t wait to get more, I know my parents don’t want me too, but oh well. My body. Hahaha. I hope you guys enjoy and maybe get inspired! Feel free to take these design if you want, I really don’t mind!

Thanks for reading! XOXO
