"I'm from a nice, suburban, middle-class family, but my tattoos remind me where I've been."
"People who don't like me talk about it as though I'm trash because I have tattoos. I find that insane because it's 2008, not the 1950s. Tattoos aren't limited to sailors. It's a form of art I find beautiful. I love it."
"Sometimes I bust out and do things so permanent. Like tattoos and marriage."
"What's funny is my husband doesn't have any tattoos at all, so he must be the very conservative one."
"I like the bad-boy types. Generally the guy I'm attracted to is the guy in the club with all the tattoos and nail polish. He's usually the lead singer in a punk band and plays guitar. But my serious boyfriends are relatively clean-cut, nice guys. So it's strange."
"When I turned 18, my mom, my nana and I all went and had tattoos of our favorite Bible verses put on the inside of our wrists. Mine is 1st Timothy, 4:12."
