If you have a tattoo, I guarantee you probably remember the reasoning behind your first one. My first one isn’t one that I want to talk about – but the first one that I would talk about is a heart on my foot. I still need to go back and get it colored in.
Country star Kelsea Ballerini had an interview with Shape Magazine and talked about the reasoning behind her first tattoo, which is ‘How sweet the sound’ on her left forearm near her wrist.
“This is a story I’ve never told publicly. The day before my first photo shoot, I panicked because I wanted a tattoo but didn’t have one yet,” Kelsea shared with the magazine. “And I was like, What if this single [‘Love Me Like You Mean It’] works and people start to follow me? Then all of a sudden, I get a tattoo. People will be like, ‘She’s going off the deep end.’”
She continued, “So I went to the tattoo parlor the day before that shoot and got a tattoo. It was just this youthfully innocent way of saying, ‘I’ve got to be who I am from the beginning of this.’”
I mean I get her reasoning, but I never would have thought she was going off the deep end. If anything I would respect that she got one at any tattoo. But tattoo’s are less taboo now.
Do you have a tattoo? Do you love it? What is the reason that you got it?
