That Old, Familiar Itch

You see, my schedule usually allows me to hit the tattoo shop about once each year. Last time was in February for my birthday. I can feel that itch coming, the one that will have me rearranging plans so I can spend a day feeding my one and only vice.... body art. Here's the thing - I've got a half sleeve on one arm, and various other easily covered pieces. Where am I feeling that itch now? My chest. Yes, that symbol of femininity, that open spot in between your collarbones. Now, my current company is very relaxed and accepting of me and all my artificially colored skin. But with the economy and job market in a serious downward spiral, I can't take the kind of risk associated with a chest piece :( It would be different if I had an advanced degree in some highly specialized profession. But my 2 years in community college do not afford me that luxury. It would be different if I was already working in law enforcement (see what community college prepares you for?!) but that's sitting in an indefinite holding pattern.
What's a girl to do? Suck it up and wait, I suppose.

It is a small world. I actually have pics of the tats I am anxiously awaiting. I don't 'think' I am allowed to post them since they are someone else's pics. Hmmmm, I will have to check on that. If I can I will be posting about it and put the pics up.

My first (and only, so far) is a small butterfly on the front bikini area... it was my reward to me when I was 30 and had lost weight. It's time to reward myself again...I have lost 60 lbs over the course of 2008.

It is SO hard for me to justify the cost of the tats I want (the money should be spent on CD)...but, I rarely do anything for myself..so, hopefully soon I can get them.

Now I will 'have' to make a post at least on the design and why..it will just be better if I can put a pic up too.

Uniforms! Such a controversial issue nowadays, for wholesale electronics more and more schools force their students to wear uniforms every day. When seeing a sea of students all china wholesale with tiring expressions and exactly the same clothes, I can’t help but china electronics wholesale ask, is uniform really a sign of unification as its name suggests? What wholesale do students truly benefit from this “compulsory sense of unity”? It’s indisputable wholesale that middle school students are experiencing the most fascinating period of life, a time china wholesale when the consciousness of beauty should have been promoted. What they really want is a stage to display their individuality and to demonstrate their unique existence, but not to be treated like machinery which was brought about by institutionalization. It’s their unalienable right to choose what to wear and realize their own values within effective guidance, but not to be misled to a wrong conception that being even a little bit different from others is uneasy.Secondly, wearing the same uniform curtails the freedom of these young people.
