The Most Tatted Generation

I got my first tattoo :)

I'm actually trying to stay hush about it. My parents are very against body modification religiously and I will not here the end of it when they do find out. For Caribbean parents it doesn't matter if ur an adult or not, they still own you. I think many of you could relate.

I kinda did this on impluse. An impulsive desicion I do not regret. An accquaintance of mine has a beautiful rose tattoo covering her shoulder and I thought I just had to get one. So I decided let me scope out a cheap and good tattoo artist to do a simple small one.

My sister's boyfriend just happened to be the man of the moment lol. He had done many beautiful roses before so I decided, I might as well go to him. In the end, instead of a small tattoo, I got a tattoo that was bigger than my fist for only $60. That was an insanely good price. The Haitian in me still tried to wager down to $55 but Rubens stuck to his guns despite the blackmail I had piled up against him lol.

I came up with the sketch and Rubens got to work. It took about less than an hour and it wasn't really painful. Waxing my eyebrows was more painful. Then again,  the place I went to get my eyebrows done had no mercy.

Me new tat was so chio that I felt all pin-up and rockabilty mode. I did my hair in an old school updo and did pin-up style makeup and dressed a way to give a nod the old school. I went to a fashion show that night (my first red carpet event) showing off my fresh new tattoo.  Sorry for the fat face guys, next time I'll remember to edit my pictures lmao.

So as I was getting interviewed at the fashion show, I was asked what this tattoo meant to me. Off the top of my head I said, "External Beauty. It's a reminder no matter what people say, I will always be beautiful."  So much better than "I saw it on someone else so I decided I wanted one."

Don't get me wrong, I always wanted a tattoo. The one I wanted was a tramp stamp of a butterfly and a crescent moon. It's the symbol of one of my character from my stories and I always felt so intuned with that character almost as if I was her (except less dramatic lifestyle and wayyy more rational). But being as I fear pain and I don't want to be labelled as a tramp while I'm still this young, I will wait till the book releases before I get the tattoo.

What's next for me and my tattoo?

Well once this baby finish healing I plan to start working out more, and get into modeling. Maybe do a little action on Godsgirls or just be more out there in general here on this blog. I already got inspo from pinterest.

I think in general tattoos spark quite a bit of  sexiness in people. I think in general people are just way more sexier when they have a tattoo. I do remember that there was a time a girl with a leopard print tattoo on her boobs came into the my place of employment and my crush was oogling her so much. I do admit, she was really attractive, but i think seeing her resparked my interest in tattoos. The rockability of it all, its just engulfing. I used to really be into Scene so this was not anything new.

Not to mention, now that I got a tattoo, men with tattoos just got hotter in my eyes. I mean well, they were already hot lol.

Just hope that one day, I am sexy tattooed blogger that I always wished to be lol.  And btw we are a very tatted generation. One day while working Drive-Thru at Micky Ds I saw so many people with visual tattoos, you could only imagine how many people had non-visual tattoos. So that 14% of the population with tattoos must be a lie in the Tri-State area, more like 30-40%

Fashion Post #3

Lately i've felt so adult,

First weave
First eyebrow wax
First credit card
First clubbing event

A lot of firsts and stuff. So I got back on my A game. Getting fashionable ready everyday. Doing some new stuff, touching some old. Everything has yet to fall in place.

Pics are from iphone so sorry for mehh quality.
Top and shorts- Papaya 
Jewelry- Ebay

Top and shorts- Agaci
Jewelry- Forever 21

Top- Papaya
Skirt- Forever 21

Stupid me, was holding down the shirt and took away the peplum shape.
Top is from Papaya
Pants are from Forever 21

Sorry. I was sweating from clubbing lol
Romper- Agaci 
Tights: 99cents store
Best thing about all these outfits? Not one piece costed more than $20 bucks. Well i think the romper was $30 but all these outfits were relatively cheap. 

My current favorite stores are Agaci and Papaya. Forever 21 has fell out of my favor in their lack of ability to provide stylish spring clothes at my kinda price. Papaya has so many cheap cute clothes, it does well for my shape and brings color back in my wardrobe. Agaci is quite pricey but their clothes makes it so worth it. Its cute, chic, and gives more of a oneegyaru vibe. My only problem is their lack of a color palette. It's not the store's fault. The black and white theme is what's popular now. But I do like my florals and different expansions of color. 

Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Non name brand
Shoes: Charlotte Russe 

 Top: forever 21
Bottom: Forever 21

I always post my fashion pics on instagram @moonangelko
#ootd you guys might find me from that

To me, fashion is simply expressing who I am. Sometime I don't want have to express it. Sometime I do. Either way, I have to put money where my mouth is and in the words of Tim Gunn "Make it work"

Ciao Lovelies, See you soon
