Tattoos are not a joke!
I also got my first tattoo at 18, it's hidden on the back of my neck because I didn't want to be able to see it and get bored of it, I thought it would be my only one but as years passed I kept getting more and now they are all over my arms lol (I have two T&S tattoos). They all have meanings and stories, also something I love about tattoos! Are we ever going to get a tour of your tattoos??
It doesn't even feel like it's been a year since the FUWM music video 😭 It's one of my favorites from this era and I think it's also one of your most unique music videos by far. I actually love my FUWM tattoo and don't regret getting it, although maybe I should've gotten it somewhere less visible aha. I also have another tns tattoo right beside it which is probably my favorite one I have!
If you could do another music video for a song off of Crybaby would you? And what song would it be?
I don’t regret any of my tns inspired ones because they all have meaning behind them. The one with your acoustic and Sara’s grestch guitars represents my first attempt at s****de and the video for Call It Off stopping me halfway through taking the pills. It was both a simple and beautiful video but also your voice had me hooked. The lyrics you wrote for me signify how you gave me a second chance at life which is why I have the lm flowing towards the anatomical heart. I do regret on tattoo on my left shoulderblade which as it has aged is now just a black blob. Hoping to get a cover up one day.my first two tattoos are weird as the patterns rise like a hive when I’m stressed. I look at my ink as like my diary. I’m getting a semi colon on both my middle fingers as a big “fuck you I’m still here” to my su****al thoughts that I still have a lot and the 3 attempts I’ve unalive myself. Sorry for the feeling sorry for myself post but I’m in bad place mentally atm. To quote my mom my “black dog is on my back” with your ink I’ve always loved your tree and the homeward bound ones particularly. I’ve always wNted the latter but didn’t want to seem like I was copying yours lol. ❤️
I wish we could attach images to show our regret (t&s themed) tattoos. Please feel free to open up that option for us 💁♀️
If you want phots of your old tattoos just ask the fandom I’m quite sure there are entire websites dedicated to y’all’s tats.
Practically Taylor with that Easter egg!! ✨
I didn’t get my first tattoo until I was in my late 20’s. It’s for mental health/su*cide awareness. The next tattoo I got was a year after my son was born. It’s Dumbo and his mom, with his moms trunk wrapped around him. The next tattoos I plan on getting are for autism (I am autistic), a sunflower, my cats, and so do want to get one of you and Sara, or my favourite lyric of yours. I’m glad you don’t regret the tattoos that you got. The dog one is really funny and cute.
PS; I am quite embarrassed/ashamed even, to write this but I’m very sorry if I’ve offended you or said something wrong that upset you in my previous posts. I hate to think that I have and if so, please tell me and I will do my best to make it right.
I got my first tattoo at 18 as well. It was impulsive, as I wanted something to permanently honor my brother who had died by suicide a couple days before.
It’s of Dry Bones, my favorite Nintendo character. Jon and I loved Nintendo. It’s on my ankle.
2 months later, I had to put my childhood dog down due to cancer. They put her paw in some clay like substance and I traced it and got it tattooed. People compliment both all the time.
But I really need to get a happy one.😜
The only thing I regret about my first one, was getting it on my ankle. For a first ever tattoo, I would NOT recommend the ankle. I cried silently while 2 teenage girls who probably shouldn’t have been getting tattoos, looked on and laughed at me. (It was a seedy shop in a college town).
But hearing all the people who regret tattoos, makes me a little nervous for the future, lol.😬🤞( seriously, where’s the tattoo emoji)?!
I love that video. A year ago I tracked down an artist at a local tattoo expo and convinced her to drive an hour to a shop she sometimes guests at so I could get my first tattoo from her. Starting to get the inch again and I’ve been thinking about scheduling my T&S themed tattoo soon. No regrets.
That music video is one of my all time favorites and it was cool and adorable that Railey and Seazynn were in it ❤️ Super excited to watch you play a show at a zoo 🦁🐨🦊🐯
i also got a tattoo right when i turned 18 impulsively. i actually got two at once: a big-ass knife on my forearm (my mom hates that one...) and a macaroni noodle on my elbow (my elbow elbow). when i first got the knife, i was having a lot of second thoughts. mainly because i didn’t have many tattoos and it is REALLY bold. thankfully, i’ve gotten more tattoos since then and it doesn’t stick out as much, so i’ve come to terms with it. although most of my tattoos have very little meaning, they all remind me of good times.
also, it seems like tribal is making a comeback!
TEGAN QQ if you had to pick your favorite tattoo that you have good you? If so which one and why if I may ask.?
I love that lyric as well, I totally get that tat on myself. I have many, and the all either represent a time in my life or are a type of dedication. Example my right arm its not a complete sleeve (it will be) I do have 9 different pieces on right arm and they all have to do with my late grandparents (my moms parents) I helped design one it's my version of "the eyes are the window to the soul" . its a window and on each side wings with an eye inside the window, the wings connect to the window right where the window is. I have many more to many to list. I do plan them on my head, add then I just go and get it done randomly, I don't tell anyone I just go alone. I find it relaxing.
I RUFF the story as well. I got my first tattoo at 30. I'm now 56 and I have 5. I'm currently designing a Tegan and Sara tattoo, but I'm having some difficulty doing so. I have seen your tribal tattoo Tegan, is it the one you had covered with a palm tree on your shoulder? I also want a TnS lyric on my skin, but my favorite lyric probably would not be appropriate so I need to think about a different one. Great post, bye for now.
i make the “no ragrets” reference all the time and am always afraid people are gonna think i can’t spell lmao
Ahh I love this video, the concept was just so FUN, the whole intro part always cracks me up lol
I have zero tattoos 😮 which often surprises people… I’m turning 40 this year and decided this is the year to start!! In my tattoo era 🧡
I have zero tattoos, so take this for what it’s worth, but I recently heard someone say, “sacred geometry is the new tribal”.
I don’t know what that means, just hadn’t left a comment in a bit! Enjoy :)
