Ladies, I know you're at least at the legal age of making your own decisions, but before you decide to get a tattoo, allow me to let you in on a little secret. A secret you may have not fully realized yet thus far in your life. What you must understand is, as women, we are â naturally â beautiful creatures.
Seriously, though. Your body literally has the ability to turn heads. Guys drool over us. We hold some serious power in our hands, because â as corny as this sounds â we hold the world's beauty.
But something girls seem to forget nowadays, or maybe have not been taught, is that women hold the world's class and elegance in their hands, as well. So what's more attractive than a girl with a nice body? I'll tell you what: a girl with class. Looks may not last, but class does. And so do tattoos.
An elegant woman does not vandalize the temple she has been blessed with as her body. She appreciates it. She flaunts it. She's not happy with it? She goes to the gym. She dresses it up in lavish, fun, trendy clothes, enjoying trips to the mall with her girlfriends. She accentuates her legs with high heels. She gets her nails done. She enjoys the finer things in life, all with the body she was blessed with. - "Why Put a Bumper Sticker on a Ferrari?" by Lisa Khoury, University of Buffalo: The Spectrum
This applies equally to all adornments.
Change is within. Make your body healthier, and make your mind sharper.
Adornments are without. Dress yourself up, be ironic, get tattoos, etc.
Change within leads to improvement. Change without leads to concealment.
Only one advances the body, mind and soul.
