Debbie's Story

I had wanted a tattoo since I was sixteen, but, of course, I had to wait until I was eighteen.  One of my friends went out and got a tattoo and I thought, "Why can't I just go out and get one?"  So, that day after school, I drove to Grand Rapids.  I didn't know what I wanted.  They had a book full of designs and I flipped through them until I found the perfect tattoo - a shooting star with a rainbow after it!  I went by myself so I was pretty nervous.

I decided to get my tattoo above my left breast.  I believe that a tattoo is a symbol of self art.  No one else has to like it and it was for me and not anyone else.  That is why I got it where I did.

I love my tattoo and I don't regret it.  I am a Christen and it doesn't affect the kind of person I am at all.  I even want a second tattoo on my ankle.

I also have an eyebrow ring.  I got that four months after I got my tattoo.  I never thought I would get an eyebrow ring.  I tough it was odd and the people even odder.  But, on a day when I was bored I said, "What the hell!" and I did it.  I thought I would only keep it for a couple of months.  I've had it for over a year now.  I LOVE IT!  I did have to get a different gauge ring.  I was pierced with a 14 gauge, now I have a 16 gauge because the 14 was too heavy.

Body jewelry and tattoos are not a statement.  If you want to make a statement don't make it permanent or drastic.  They represent who you are and everyone will ask "Did it hurt?", most will just stare.  My eyebrow ring and tattoo are part of who I am.  People don't have to like it, but if they don't accept it, then they can't accept me.  But who wants to deal with that anyway?
