TATTOOS: Ink is for all the girls!

Katy GoldI'm  a tattooed girl. There is no way round that. I have many tattoos, and I am female. 

However I do not look like many of the women you see on Pinterest or Instagram under the numerous #tattooedgirl #inkedgirl or #girlswithtattoos and the like, hashtags. Or the girls on the top shelf in WHSmith. 
There's nothing wrong with how they look, far from it, but the connotations associated with inked girls are a stretch from the truth. 

So I'm  here to set the record straight.

Tattooed girls aren't  just the ones in the top shelf magazines, or even the tattoo models. 

Don't get me wrong, tattooed models are some of the most beautiful girls on the planet. 
Take Cervena Fox, Monami Frost and Katy Gold, three totally stunning and truly down to earth tattoo models. 
Some of their shoots involve more clothing than others, but all tastefully done. Yes they are sexy, but its not smutty, which is the typical stereotype given to tattoo models and tattooed girls.

I love seeing these photos, I mean, they are beautiful and perfectly showcase how stunning tattoos can be, and that they aren't 'trampy', 'slutty' or 'butch'. Is there anything 'butch' about these images I ask you?

There are so many girls out there, from all walks of life, in all shapes and sizes with a huge range of tattoos.
Just like non-tattooed girls really.

A little, or a lot of ink, doesn't change a girls personality, or make them more promiscuous. So don't  judge a book by its cover, or tarnish everyone with the same brush.
