You may have noticed recently that I’ve had a number of new tattoo additions added to my legs.
I’m kind of on a collecting mission especially since meeting the absolute doll that is Madeleine June and falling head over heels for her artwork and tattoo style. Plus she’s a fellow hufflepuff so we’re essentially kindred spirits.
I’ve always been a big fan of leg tattoos but have been slower in the collection front in this area until now.
For me, my legs are for collecting a mish-mash of cute smaller tattoos. Definitely all in colour.
You see. I kind of have a love/hate relationship with my legs. From the knee down I’m OK with them. My calfs aren’t half bad. But my thighs, well they’re a different story entirely.
And that’s half the reason I’m on a leg tattoo collecting mission. Because the more ink i have on my legs, the happier and more confident I feel about them!!
Fortunately being a mum means my mini skirt days are ultimately behind me as they really aren’t practical with a toddler. But I do where a lot of midi lengths and seeing a little flash of colour poking through the bottom gives me so much joy and a tiny thrill too!!
I really do believe tattoos can be so empowering. They aren’t just memorials to old times. Or commemorating something you love. But they can grow your confidence so much, and help you to build that body love that so many search for but can never achieve.
So that’s why I’m collecting leg tattoos and why I love them so much!
Will you be joining the leg tattoo lovers?
