Someone a few days ago asked me how many tattoos I had, chastising me for counting all my stick and pokes as I went. I was thinking about it and realized that my homemade tattoos are probably the ones I love the most. They’re the ones that I spend hours pouring over with a sewing needle, working until I can’t stand it anymore just so they look ‘perfect’. They’re the most meaningful because they’re the ones I’VE done. This is my newest one out of four stick and pokes, 17 total. I absolutely adore it.
