Tattoo Talk With Kirsty

Its that time of the week again
Name- Kirsty 

kirstyralph.co.uk -  a lifestyle, music and food blog! 

So what was your first tattoo and how old where you?
I was 18 it was a butterfly on my left wrist

Why did you choose that specific design?
It was literally a really nice design, and for as long as I can remember it was always one that I 
wanted doing. I think it is typical a girl tattoo! 

How many tattoos do you have currently? What are they?
I have 5 (although I count them as 6, one is them is two separate pieces done but make a whole) I 
got the final lyrics of the song done first, and then decided I wanted the whole thing instead! 
So the butterfly 
Song - Let me Sign  - my wedding song and has a personal meaning to me. It is also the song featured in the twilight film sang by Robert Pattinson.
My Husband’s name - on the back of my neck
The Cheryl Hand tribal sign - right hand
Quote along right arm - ‘death is peaceful, easy. Life is Harder. Another twilight reference but it 
holds so much meaning and value to me

Do you have a favourite piece? if so what one and why?
It has to be my quote along
my arm - I am currently going through a really hard time involving a loved one who is in their final stages of life, the quote has become my motto. I also suffer from depression and there are times when dying would be the easy way out, but I know life is worth living, no matter how hard it gets. 

Did you do a lot of research in to your chosen artist/artists?
I really didn't. But after getting the song lyric one, I stuck to the same artist, Mark is an incredible tattooist, his work is super clean and the writing is perfectly done. 

Are you planning on anymore?
I am, I want to get a sleeve my the rest of my right arm, which will involve a time piece, a rose and a another quote which was featured in my wedding vows, ‘ no measure of time with you will be enough. But let’s start with forever.  I also want the poem fire and ice done on my left arm, I have a thing with quotes rather than imagery. 

A silly question as pain is relative but Most painful tattoo?
The writing on my right wrist, it was along the bone, pretty painful! 

General reaction from friends and family about your tattoos/body mods? Are they happy about you having them?
They really aren't bothered by them. 

Reactions from members of the public about your tattoos/body mods, Good or Bad?
Most people stop and read the one on my arm, purely because it is such a big peace, and the writing is perfectly done, I get a lot of compliments for it. 

Have you tattoos ever hindered anything you wanted to do, interviews, work, etc?
So far they haven’t been an issue. Most of them can be covered if need be. 

Do you get asked did it hurt a lot? What do you tell people?
Everyone asks this question, normally I just say I'm used to the pain and needles (being a diabetic helps) but more so than not I just say its like scratching over and over

Do you find people will touch your tattoo (body mods) without asking? If so how do you deal with it?
I've had this a couple of times, only when it was fresh and still bumpy! 

Shout out to the artist/artists hear if you want
Mark Watson at Seven Magpies (Bedford) an incredible artist

Any partying words?
Getting a tattoo is for life, make sure you are 100% happy with the design and that it has meaning to you.
