Moll, how can you say it has no thought behind it?
It obviously has meaning for her.

I think it's a beautiful tattoo, I love Hello Kitty and love Hellraiser, and wouldn't hesitate to have something like it, except that now I know someone has it, so no point.

:) Yeah, not a good thing to wake up and check DA to. I didn't want to look at them anymore, although I deeply appreciate everyone who stepped in before I could even respond. ^_^

And thank you! Despite all the negativity I still love my tattoo, not that the opinions of people I don't even know would dissuade me. :P

I guess not eh! Oh no problem, stupid gets what stupid deserves and that's to be silenced ha ha! Seriously, where do these people come from?

Exactly, so a few people are jealous, whiny, whatever; you like it and when it comes down to it, that's all that matters.

Oh wow. I hope it isn't permanent, I have a feeling that you're going to deeply regret this in a short amount of time.

Not that it isn't neat. That's a cute little concept, but only with ink and paper. It doesn't appear to have any real thought or meaning to it, which I believe is the entire purpose of getting a tattoo. But if you're comfortable with it at the moment then more power to you.

I guess I should say that this is my 10th tattoo, including one design that covers my entire back from nape to waist. I only regret that some of them weren't bigger or more intricate. I put a lot of thought into everything I put on my body. I'm not an 18-year-old girl who can finally get tattooed and went with the first cute thing I came up with.
This particular tattoo carries a lot of meaning for me. I've been a major fan of the Hellraiser movies and the stories by Clive Barker that they are based off of for years now (10+ years truthfully). I've also loved Hello Kitty since I was a little girl. So, this is a melding of two concept that differ so much yet are a part of my personality. Therefore this suits me in a way it may not suit other people, especially for permanent body art.

I think of all the tattoos she regrets, the celtic knot on her lower back is tops on that list. Trust me, this is one that suits her personality perfectly.

It is permanent, just like my other 9 tattoos. And yes, most people consider Pinhead scary.
