The lines run down my back Intertwining Crossing over the other Each having a purpose Each telling a story Giving a bit of history Showing some love Needle as a brush Blood as the paint Skin being the canvas Finish product is art Pain coming with the work It is not to brag It has meaning It is My history My future My legacy
Suppressed Into nothingness Never allowed to be who I am I just want some freedom I don't care what it is I want to dye my hair purple And get a nice lip ring I want gauges in my hears And to get some more piercings I want to get a tattoo One that says, '*******' I also what some help To not feel so suppressed
I have never been myself Even when I am around people I love Because no one really likes me Though I like to be myself, it's fun All that I'm saying, is it's just a little dye A little hole in my skin That will go away when I'm done Please oh please Just let me be myself I want to be different I'm currently somebody else
I know you don't get body art Or the fact that it's just as beautiful as a poem I know that you wouldn't want to look at me Even though I'm stuck in your home All I'm asking Is for you to allow me an identity This person that I am right now Is not the real me I just want some help To not feel so suppressed
I'm a smart person, I'm in all the good classes, but I don't like looking like a stupid little blonde everywhere I go. I hate not having body art, it just feels like my face is a canvas I'll never get to paint, and my hair is the frame that I never got to pick. I don't care what people think about me. I don't think they'll like it. But people have to understand, that people don't get body art to impress, they get it because our body is a blank canvas.
Two bears lie on my arm. They show my mother and me. The love for her is permanent, It's tattooed on my skin.
A whale sits on my foot. It has no loving feeling. It's a funny little story, Impulse control got the best of me. so now that sad whale, is tattooed to my skin.
Little croc, he rides my shoulder He's holding a balloon. First piece in colour, but i need more tattoo 3 is a permaddition to my skin.
My next piece will ride my side. the story is a little sadder, Traditional style in blacks and blues, An iceberg to show my secrets. An iceberg to show pain and sorrow, Hidden deep below. That tattoo inspires, to make me wanna be better. So I think it's a fine addition, A new tattoo to add to my skin.
