If/When I Am Skinny


Here is a different sort of post for once that I wanted to share with you guys for mine and your motivation. Have any of you ever thought about getting a tattoo?

I have quite a few times but I think it takes quite a lot of confidence and thinking to get a tattoo. I don’t even know if I’d be able to deal with the pain or not and I know my parents would be LIVID. What I would probably do is get a henna tattoo first and see if I like it and see what my parents reaction is.

But anyway, a girl can dream and I have been thinking a lot about what I would get. A year ago I really liked the idea of a small tattoo on my ankle and something relevant. I love scuba diving and snorkelling and so I thought something like this…


(The snorkel, bottom, two in from the left).

I even drew it on my ankle and I thought it looked quite good but I didn’t get it as my parents hated it.

Now, I’ve been looking again and I REALLY like the idea of a garter tattoo and for those of you who don’t know what a garter is:

They’re stunning, don’t you think? There is a lot of ancient traditions surrounding them whereby the groom takes it off his wife’s leg and throws it to his grooms-men, the one who catches it will marry next- a bit like the throwing of the bouquet. There was also a tradition where the women would rip it off and originally its use was to hold up stockings. I, personally, think they’re beautiful.

And the tattoos of them, I think are just as nice however I only like the small and simple ones. I realise how thin my thighs would have to be to have this tattoo so that’s why if I reach a stage where my thigh is as thin as these girls’ then I’ll reward myself with it!

Here are some particularly nice ones:


The favourite is the one pictured twice (2nd and 5th). I think it’s stunning and if I’m brave enough, will be my reward WHEN I am thin.
