Only bad girls did it: me and Janis Joplin and biker chicks. Now it doesn’t mean anything. No one’s surprised. I got a tattoo right after I left Sonny (Bono) and I was feeling real independent. That was my badge.
I wanted some decoration. See, the one on my wrist is for everybody; the one on my tit is for me and my friends. Just a little treat for the boys, like icing on the cake.
Janis Joplin, on her tattoos
I’m going to get a tattoo on my left arm that says “Correlation is not causation” and one on my right arm that says “The plural of anecdote is not data”. That way I can more easily respond to people who try to talk to me about serious things. Also, probably one that says “Ghosts aren’t real; you were just tired, sillybilly”. That’s a more specific one.
This is the tattoo Janis Joplin had on her wrist.
It’s a symbol of feminism, both in its original intent and in its pop culture relevance.
I think it’s lovely.
Dear new follower,
Please marry me.
Sometimes when I think I really want a tattoo I’ll draw it on my body in Sharpie.
I always go back to having a dream catcher on my rib cage…
I want to get ‘pop, lock, and drop it’ tattooed on my rib cage.

I got this henna at the Jersey Shore.
I kind of want to make it a real tattoo.
(done a lot better, of course)
I’d like to get the word ‘gypsy’ tattooed on me somewhere.
My whole family believes that my grandmother came back as a butterfly. Because of this, I always feel an overwhelming warmth when I see one. I wish that butterfly tattoos weren’t so cliche and potentially trashy. Alas…
