If I'm a Christian can I get a tattoo?

All The Tattoos I Want To Get And Why

Tattoos are meaningful works of art that last forever.


When I was little, I considered myself conservative in thought. I didn't want to smoke, drink, do drugs, get tattoos, or piercings. I didn't want to have sex before marriage. I didn't want to curse when I casually spoke.

I think it is safe to say now "little me" would be shook if she saw what I do now.

While some of the above might be considered wrong, I don't think that tattoos are one of them.

Throughout life, we go through times that leave a mark on us and I don't see any reason that we shouldn't visually and artistically show that mark as a reminder of what has been important to us, and what will always be important to us.

I even think that a funny tattoo that might be strange is important because if it makes us laugh or feel youthful and happy - why not carry it with us forever. We might think we will hate it when we are older but in a way, it is a younger piece of us that still shows.

I've given all the tattoos that I want in life some thought. There are a total of four.

The first is a set of trees, three to be exact. I want it located on my left ankle with the trunk of the trees reaching down into my heel. It will be very simple, a line for a trunk and then small branches extending out to the sides. This reminds me to stay grounded. I have the tendency to get lost in thought and daydream frequently. It can be very troublesome when I'm trying to do work but overall I'm glad I have the ability to have a creative mind. The trees also remind me of the ground we walk on - for it is not ours, it belongs to the earth and the wildlife that began it.

The second is a lightning bolt located on my back left shoulder. A very simple small design of the bolt would be drawn. It resembles when I thought I was going to die during a sailing storm that changed my perspective on how quickly things can change. The left shoulder was the one I looked back over when I saw the storm approaching. It reminds me how even when you're prepared, life can change and you must never take it for granted.

The third is a crescent moon located on the side of my right wrist: small and simple. This crescent moon is a symbol of the relationship I have with a very close friend of mine. She was born the day before me and we share the same phase of the moon in astrological terms. We both have a moon in Cancer that reminds us that we can be dramatic and emotional sometimes and it is okay to feel anxious and depressed.

The fourth is the Aquarius double wave symbol located on my left wrist. Small and simple. My sign is Aquarius which contradicts the emotional cancer moon I have. Aquarius wants to cover up emotions which makes it difficult for me to say what I need to say sometimes. Overall though I love the sign I belong to. I see myself in it and astrology is something I really enjoy learning about.

I've given these tattoos a lot of thought. I highly recommend considered carrying what you believe you hold dearest and holding onto it for the rest of your life.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
