Here is a better picture of my new Iggy Pop tattoo and I’ll make sure to take a picture once it’s healed.

I’ll say basically the same thing I said on the firs post. On the bottom left is a picture of my leg before the tattoo. I had struggled with self harm in high school and some of college which left behind a lot of scars that I have been ashamed of for so long. I love Iggy Pop and one day my dad passed me his phone and said ‘take a look at this’. It was an interview with Iggy Pop talking about when he cut himself on stage. What Iggy said about how he felt in the moment when he cut felt so similar to how I felt when I did. I never would have an explanation just simply that I felt I needed to be cut in that moment, like I deserved it. Iggy said something similar along the lines of ‘the truth in that moment was I thought I should be cut, so I did’. What amazed me even more was that even though he had cut on his chest HE NEVER WORE A SHIRT. Go and look up a picture of Iggy Pop and in 90% of those pictures he isn’t wearing a shirt. Iggy didn’t care about scars and he isn’t ashamed to put himself out there. Look at the last picture I put up there, he is smiling with stitches on his chest. I saw him live and he was running around without a shirt after the second song. Meanwhile I could not even where shorts for fear of showing my scars on my legs. But then the more I thought about it the more I realized that if Iggy could run around without a shirt I could run around in shorts. Iggy’s scars don’t matter so why should mine. Iggy is a happy old man now that sings to his bird and maybe one day I’ll be happy like him too. 
To show I’m no longer ashamed I got some lyrics from one of my favorite songs of his right above my scars. I’m not covering up the scars anymore I’m fucking accentuating them. Take a look at my scars people they are a part of me. And take a look at my rad tattoo as well.

Ok I know I should stop posting pictures of my tattoo but my friend @strange-rock-and-roller took this photo and I love it
Ignore the fact I just put aquaphor on the tattoo so there is a bit of gunk on it (it’s still healing)

My last tattoo isn’t even fully healed yet but I got another one. My grandma always draws this tulip and signs all her cards with it so at the shop she drew it right onto my ear and then the artist tattooed it. Her favorite thing about this is the placement of the tattoo which I told her is because she talks my ear off. She also got tattooed and for the first time so it was a good day today!
