I've got a snake tattoo on one arm,
And a butterfly on the other,
Cause a lover done harm,
And since a lover done harm-
I'll leave her for another,

The butterfly is in black and white,
And the snake- I tied in an Odin's knot,
Cause I saw my lover the other night,
Yeah, the under-covers lovers got caught,

And each tattoo was a new beginning,
But that *****, she was a ****,
So if Colleen wants sin, she can go on sinning,
But I won't stay in that rut!

The one on her left wrist
reminds her of a family member
now long gone.
On her right forearm
a flower, because she liked how it looked.
On the back of her neck
a gecko she got in Cancun
and on her left thigh, one she'd rather forget.
None add her up or subtract
who she was or who she is.

If I exist then so do you baby boo, don't be so professional.
Hit me up, little miss know it all
We can Post out *** tapes to **** hub, unspoken trust u would never lemme fall.

Let them watch, our kind love is fire.
They won't understand, but I know u do, neo traditional, never a lier.
Let me get drunk on your essence  and your presence admire
We can flaunt it all, my commitment will never tire.

I've been speaking another language or so it seems.
I know your out there. Not another one of these "queens"
The canvas of dreams
Waking up to the Ray's of sun your soul beams.

The rest of these bars are already written.
For when we meet and u got me smitten.
Ready to play lil kitten?
Just throwing it out there girl in bars, spitting
Bars about Alice and looking at her look back at me

I want tattoos
It’s the family in black lines
A pause; I can hear her thinking,
She is shocked I think about them at all,
I laugh and ask where is the best place
She is upset and tells me :
Please don't get something permanent.
“This body is temporary,” I reply
Why scar a perfectly good body,
A body that is perfect, no decay?
Why would I hurt myself and her in this way
She tells me don’t get carried away;
It is not in our history to mark ourselves,
Even though I may.
You’ll not get a job, and
people will look at you funny
Are you ok with that?
It’ll mostly be hidden by my clothes
Also, that's discrimination I say;
Yes it exists,
so why make your life harder than today?
She doesn’t quite understand.
There is no use,
No NEED to be inked.
I don’t need to mark myself for a clan
Or a group or for any other thing
So why, she wonders
must I get an expensive work done to my body,
where it’ll hurt, clearly.
I don't want my daughter to hurt.
I say, “I can handle the pain”
She says she’ll never understand,
And me too I can’t begin to comprehend
What a mother goes through
when all she does is care.
I thank her though and say, it is a fight
and a journey that maybe I’ll regret one morning
But I want to be reminded
to be grateful of my family everyday
She shakes her head
and tells me I can show it in other ways
But we conclude the story
with a compromise tonight,
I’ll get lesser lines than yesterday’s design,
She’ll stay by my side as I make mistakes,
And for that I’ll keep loving her more each day.
Tattoos (conversations with my mum) ©️2020 Jana Pelzom
Well thays fine and don't say I didn't try
My souls rotten the kind of person that's best left in the past forgotten
My demon's real and they will destroy you too
Walking away is the best thing you do
I don't have a heart
So don't think it hurts
It's made me Cold hard and ******* shallow
Don't think I'll take a second to wallow
There are much harder pills I've had to swallow
That happiness is something that will always elude me
Just makes it clear now and doesn't comfuse me
Drugs are my lady and she always saves me
Always faithful and quits
Never messages me and says that's it
I'd rather walk with her into the grave
Than think I can live life's greatest lie
That u could meet someone and die happy
I'll take the mess and ruin she brings
Because with her least I can accept I'll never win
She brings certainly quick and painless
Or slow and painful
Either way I'll remain faithful
If only i wasnt clean
And this wasn't a dream

I am nearing seventy,
my woman, has me, surpassed.
that hallmark of difference,
is a race I can’t catch her up,
so always on the lookout for ways,
ways to equalize the difference.

laying in bed on a beautiful
Tuesday, (renamed Twosday)
romantic muse-marveling how
an ordinary weekday came to be
so spectacular, the senses are
keening, preening, as the warm
loving feelings upping with sun,
rising, and my eyes welling tears,
of youthful gratefulness and love

I propose we get matching tattoos
to lock in this storied moment historical.

She smiles.
Stealthy moves as if to bed exit,
when with a sudden twist of fate,
reverses with one of the three pillows,
her in-bed-reading-backup-accompanists,
no pretense, she tries to beat me to near-death.

She inquires.
“What tattoo exactly did I have in mind?”

Till Death Do Us Part
(inside a heart, optional).

She snorts.
“That can be arranged, if you get more deranged!”

from now on my passing thoughts of loving celebration,
gonna just keep on passing by, except for maybe, just,
tattoos of chocolates, a money saving device, so many
occasions useful, now you understand this poem’s entitlement.

always a kernel of imaginative chocolate storytelling
with a center within of a truthful happening
Saint or sinner,
One and the same.
If u prayed for me,
I'd pray for u.
If u said you forgive me,
Id say "I've already forgiven u"
If u say u love me
I'd say" I love you too".
If u miss me
  I'd ask "miss me like you're scared to meet a ghost?"

1 for the money
2 for em honeys
3 for my real bros
who know, how it goes
Tattooing above all
Thought she was trying to make me fall
personified when my hearts in it
Minds eye's traces perfection so lit'
lady luck an artist or must have ink, I think
option 2
she's batting lashes with lace and mink 
Sitting watching, it fall in my lap.
Taking my breath giving my passion back
No competition in this category
Only one I'm battling is me 
She gave me v.v.i.p
Walked to the front free
Quid fingers crossed
I think she got you, u not lost
Do what u gotta do
Blow kiss
call her your misses
Fk b day wishes
She got the world wrapped around ya fingers
Red ink stains everything it lingers
Seems like she **** karma
Ended your drama
If she was real say take her home to momma
***** but not taking about anyone specific
Just that feeling u get when u winning
No hidden meaning, new beginning
Nothing between the lines
Just ink No lies
Just life's throwing back matching gang signs 
And to think u were gonna let them rob
Back in the day when I asked for job
On a side note
Your style....   .
Yeah boi.........Nothing.........................
 I wrote 😂
Laughing just another thing I forgot to mention
Why u think i ask so many questions?
This test paper my research, written...
I can carry on for days with this one tho ....
Ill just drop at
( the following text has been omitted).yo

*want add so much more but..  
Lemme drop it there.  was really about getting  tattoo equipment and a new phone and not putting much effort to find what I need 😃
Minds want to get raw badly though and add fk whatever 
Haha fk 😂😂😋
Know to much
Speak to little
Inked skin let the devil in.
A mistake you make.
Now God will your soul forsake
You say your body is a temple,
So why not decided to paint walls.
Fearing Gods judgement sin and hell,
Avoiding the sound and smell of tattoos and parlor, well.
Trying to saint,
Realisticly a sinner
Eat your heart out,
jesus didn't hang with winners
Kane killed Abel like a beginner
Matthew a sinner and debt collector
Jesus still showed loved and a disciple he become, blossoming  nectar.
Religion and ink
Mix well together I think
Jeremiah 1:5

God already knew.
In a place without time or space.
In this unknown, before conception
we spoke face to face.
Every sin and wrong doing like a movie
seen time and time.
He knew me,
Mistakes I made, achieved
My life was never up to lady luck or plain chance.
Tattoos are a sin unto Gods image?  
created in perfection
So disease, pain,addiction and affliction?
he knew me before I began.
he knew I'd sin and would stain my skin.
Knew addiction knew lI would suffer endless torment and pain with in.
knew my life and knew what he planned
Gave me life and gave free will
decide? wanting God at my side?
Sins of mine just Dont hide.
Within but upon my skin too they resides
Wailling to let God in, decides Collisions 3:23

My heart he knew it.
Gilled it with passion and art.
Directed me with my addiction
Allowing no doubt in
True conviction
Romans 12:16
As if he vocalised my vocation
Truly unmistaken.
People came, passion grew.
His name they now, knew.
Some people a blessings,
Some a lesson.
Some he took along the way.
I still think of them everyday
The good die young or so I've heard
Read page to page every word 
In search of answers left dismayed  found only testimonies of the price paid
Used to sinners to convey words
The disciples lead on this quest
Not a soul he took in jest
Romans 1:12- 1 Timothy 4:14*
Talent inking a sin confused, left a haze,
In the end of days
before devil returns seals are broken
Realizing revolution's
Gods promise of condemnation.
Tallied my sins, passion carried
That of my addiction and life i buried.
Not willing to risk salvation
My soul needs rest
at the end of this Damnation;
selling it's self, sloth glutten greed ****** immorality
It's reality "
Pull in, all the cool people are here, or still Coming through, chill pool side, got your Shades on for flames in your eyes?
The devil said
Decided blessings
Tired of curses feeling like rehearsals
God lessons learnt?
Disbelieving trails ahead?
time for me to find one true?
Thing I only ask you?
God smide with my plans laid?
You made, last eye to eye,
1 Peter 4.10
My tattoing born in you
If you knew the my sins,
You knew my art
A skill you grew, in Grace
Done unto you
I now wear a tattooed
Cross upon my face.
Defined in you these sins I do
Soul Salvation
