I'm graduating from high school next week. And I feel I'm in need of some sort of symbol of such. I noticed just last week that my favorite teacher has three small stars tattooed on her inner ankle. That got me thinking - maybe tattoos aren't as bad as I've always thought them to be. This teacher, who I think may very well be the world's classiest woman, has a tattoo. My best friend has a gorgeous little tattoo of a dove, too. It's very pretty. Another lovely young lady in my life has a heart-shaped watermelon tattooed on her foot. I think nothing less of these girls, and they both love their tattoos. I ruminated on the whole thing for awhile, and then - a sign. Kat Von D, star of LA Ink on TLC, has collaborated with Sephora to design a line of cosmetics.
Kat Von D is a drop-dead gorgeous, insanely gifted tattoo artist. And now she's allowing us to capture her rocker girl look through a tube of lipstick? I'm so there. So, again, if such an incredible, talented human being has been able to make a successful career with tattooing, they really can't be all bad. I will continue to think about all of this. Two other darling buddies of mine have plans to get tattoos after graduation. I may or may not join them. I want to get a treble clef tattooed on my ankle, but we'll see. But like I said, I am going to have to contemplate this. Ideas, my fashionista friends?
