Hi! I'm Shelby and I'm 19. I just started college and I love anything that has to do with piercings, plugs, and tattoos. (I have all of the above but a tattoo) Just looking for some inspiration wherever I can find it. Snapchat is sweetshelby123 if you ever want to talk!

What kind of styles are you drawn to?

More into Greek mythology and poetry types. I'm really into this one quote from "The Satyricon" by Petronius Arbiter:

("For I indeed once saw with my own eyes the Sibyl at Cumae hanging in her jar, and when the boys asked her, 'Sibyl, what do you want?' she answered 'I want to die'.")

If someone could ever make that into a tattoo, I would get that shit put on me ASAP!

Lots of beautiful imagery you could pull from a sad oracle priestess! You could go all black and ornate inspired by the illustrations of Aubrey Beardsley, full color and painterly, and many other styles in between.

I love the Beardsley idea! Will defiantly look more into his work. Thanks so much! Xx

    • i got my first tattoo 2 weeks ago and the colour looks patchy on the rose petals, was just wondering if its part of the healing or if i need to get a touch up. Sorry if it’s hard to see. Thank you 😄
    • I am kind of stuck with one thing; is it really important to keep its orientation to be possible for other people to see it correctly? Is it something I`ll regret if I have it for my view mainly? For instance I was even thinking to have it reverse -if I decide to have it on my chest- so that I can read it when I look at the mirror. Does it make any sense, or is it plain silly?
    • For some reason I want it closer to my heart. I was even thinking of distributing the five lines to several parts, like the wrists, the neck, chest and maybe somewhere on the top ribs, but keeping it covered will be better I think. And being the beginner that I am, I think it will be better to keep it simple in order to avoid doing something weird.
