Ok I need a little pep talk from someone..... I have three tatoos...one Tom Petty and two Prince....I have the symbol outlined between my shoulders (bra level) and a bar of music from "sweet baby" wrapped around my hip. Anywhoo I LOVE them and put a ton of consideration into making the choice to get these but now I see the look on peoples faces when they see them. It's not acceptance it's more like Damn this girl is stupid....I always say I don't regret them but the shit I'm getting is bringing me down two years is starting to get to me. Any words for me....on this rainy day I sure could use some!



You should never be ashamed of anything you love! Obviously music brings you great joy and pleasure and makes YOU very happy. I get shit all the time from mhy boyfriend who tells me I worship a gay man. I don't have any tatoos, but I have a lot of memorbilia. Your tatoos sound cool, so try not to worry about what others think. hug

I just read someones sig here (can't remember whose) but it was from a song...I think it applies to you. "...you can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself!"

If you love them, it doesn't matter in the least what others think. Don't sweat them. They are probably jealous anyway. They don't have the balls to get something so beautiful.

You can have this tattooed beside it....stfu

I love, love, love, my prince tattoo and would not dream of being ashamed of it. His music has shaped so much in my life that if anything I bring it up. Keep rocking and repping with yours. If they dont get it forget em!!! mad

You know I have had a P tat for over 12 years; and have never been ashamed of it. I didn`t get it to impress anyone else, I got it to impress me. You should post a pic of your tat here on P. org and see how many people dig it.

By the way a Tom Petty Tat???? WTF!!!!!

listen if the tattoo is an extension of you and means something to your heart, then you should not regret anything, every one of my tattoos means something to me

Hey yall I just uploaded my three tatoos....I don't know if the Tom one will get put through but I hope so....any ways...Baboo I just brought in a pic and had the artist help me out with all of them. For placement get them somewhere unique...all of mine can be covered with a swim suit. I guess it depends on your career and how daring you are..... Thanks for all of the kind words! I'd love feedback on the pics

I ws thinking ankle...front hip area or back hip area confused or I dunno...I am still debating even getting one. Of course my husband does not want me to, "just get a shirt with the prince on it" My mom say "WTF" neutral sad

I love Prince's music and I am a huge fan buuuuut, I don't want his name, symbol or anyone else's permanently written into my flesh.

If Prince means that much to you, don't worry about what others say. But the fact that you are noticing people's reactions to them and that the reactions are bothering you makes me feel like mayyyybe you regret getting them just a bit. I am pretty sure there were people that looked at them in the way you described before. People are like that.

Hi Pasquerto,
Screw em! Don't let them get to you. I think your tattoo's sound nice. Style & placement are everything. I think you picked great spots for them. I personally think the shoulder blade bra level is the best spot for a tat on a lady. Who knows why they cringe when they see it. I don't understand why some people don't like Prince or tattoo's. But unforunately you have doubled your chances of getting crap from close-minded jerks.
I have two. One is a small Stones tounge on my right shoulder & the other is a Chili Peppers astrix on my right arm just above my wrist. I too get looks & crap from some. But I feel sorry for these people because they don't understand (and never will!)
I actually met a girl last night in a club who had a prince tattoo on her lower back area. Prince's name came up. She showed it to me and we sang kiss as loud as we could. Now this was a rock club. So we got a few dirty looks and As much as we wanted to say F#$K you! We just laughed. smile
I want a Prince tattoo but I can't decide where to put it or what style. I love the prince symbol, but I used to draw the old symbol 0+> alot when I was in Highschool. On books, walls, desks...My teachers hated me for it. Lol
So because of the old school conection (1999 was my first Prince album) I'm coflicted. Anyone have advice on placement & style?

Don't do it. I mean there are women who've slept with the man that didn't get his name or symbol tatted anywhere on them, you know? I just can't see it. Why not try a temporary tattoo and walk around with it for a couple of weeks and see if you really want it on you 35 years from now?
