Knitting Needles

Location: Inner arm

The story: I really like to knit. I think I found the design on a Pin or something. I got it done by an apprentice at a random shop that I walked into in Huntington Beach, CA. Now I know better about getting tattoos — be really wary of places with a lot of walk-ins, and don't use an apprentice unless you have seen their work. Most good tattoo artists have a waiting list that is at least a few weeks long and will work with you to make the perfect tattoo. Yes, tattoos from apprentices are supercheap, but this is something that will be on your body forever!
