So here's the video I said I would make. Promise I won't ramble on anymore on this subject after this. But I really felt the need to share my feelings and spread the word on YouTube. Hopefully I can inspire someone to choose a unique design over a copy one day...

This lovely day had a rather disgusting ending. A follower on Tumblr linked me this girl's Instagram. She has stolen my chest piece and is showing it proudly on her account. I have already said what I want to say on Facebook and I feel done. I cannot deal with it anymore today... However I will make a video on the general subject of tattoo stealing tomorrow to clear things up.
Ultimately she is the one who has to look herself in the mirror every day knowing what she knows. It doesn't make me love my original piece any less. And pathetic people like this will never stop me form sharing my beautiful body art on my pages. Ever. I will not ruin the pictures with copyright signs. I will not cave. So on some leve I just have to expect but never accept that this happens.
But I'm sure you guys can understand the frustration and hatred and disgust I feel when it comes to this subject. I will always comment on it and I believe that these thieves deserve all the rage they get from my followers. If they're stupid enough to steal my shit, they 100% deserve to face the consequences.
Hope you guys had a better evening than I did.
Wohoo! Added some new ink to my collection last night. Made by Ellen of course. We did some flowers on my arm/elbow to kinda connect my portrait to my lower arm tattoos. I'm super duper happy with the result, and if you want a better look at it check out the vlog! :D x
Woke up to THIS blog post on Tattoodo about 'The Dark Side of Tattooed Women' and I don't even know what to say. I mean of course, just 'cause they used my picture doesn't mean that they know my life story, but how can they write stuff like this? The way it's written it suggests that the majority of tattooed women are at suicide risk.
"Women with four or more tattoos were the group that showed us the only two interesting connections: they had a much higher suicide attempt history, and paradoxically, it was this same group – and the only group – that showed an increased level of self-esteem."
Should I be on suicide watch? I don't know. I don't think I'm in the risk zone haha... What about men with tattoos? Are they suicidal as well? Hm. Strange. Of course, getting tattoos are a great way of dealing with a loss or with something else major in your life. At least for some people! It's like therapy. But I just didn't like the tone of the post where they basically lumped us all together.
Also, sourcing a picture to 'Tumblr' is like using 'Google' as a reference for a paper... -_-
Today's video gives you a little sneak peak of my future tattoo plans! Enjoy! x
