You're In Brookelynn: Tattoo Love

Tattoo Love

My wrists, by the talented Stefan Sinclair of Two Hands Tattoo in Auckland.
There is a little of Bugsy’s rose showing, and a tiny foot of my lovely boxing gent from Jess Swaffer showing too.

Here's something about me: I have been dyinggg to get a tattoo. I already have my first tat planned out, but unfortunately I don't have the funds to go about it without going completely broke (oh, the life of a poor college student...) To alleviate my pain, I've done a little roundup of some of my favorite tattoos from around the web :) (All photos link to source)

These are pretty awesome, right? If you can't tell, I tend to sway towards traditional tattoos, but I appreciate lots of different styles. Hopefully you'll be seeing one of my own tattoos around here someday!

Have a lovely Wednesday :)


  1. When I was younger I always wanted two sparrows, SO BAD and now that I'm older I feel like I'd never get those. haha its weird how much you change from your teens to your twenties. I love the look of the death before decaf tattoo though, old school is so pretty.

  2. These are gorgeous! The third is my favorite. Have you thought about sharing your tattoo design even if it's not time to get it yet? I'd love to see!

  3. I've been meaning to do one of these for ages!!! I have a tattoo idea picked out, but I want it on my ribs so I have to psych myself up for that kind of pain. I love the style you're interested in! My taste is much more minimalist and typography/quote like...then again, I'm an english major so really that explains a lot. Love it!

  4. That last one is hilarious. For me it would be death before espresso. HAHA.
    I have been wanting a tattoo for ages don't know if I will ever actually do it.

    Cool post.



  5. I agree with Amber. I wanted birds SO BAD. now everyone has them now. These are super cute!
