Inked & Awesome // Sarah Dickinson

Name: Sarah Dickinson
Age: 32
Occupation: Currently seeking work.

Tell me about your very first tattoo. 
A butterfly on my left shoulder! I was at college and during class I decided I wanted one!! Quite spur of the moment but we all knew a local tattoo shop so we al went along and I chose it off the design boards in the shop!!

Do your tattoos effect your job, have they in the past? 
No! Not at all! I have never had anyone mention I should over them up or anything negative!! In fact, more people have said how much they like them! Especially the horse ones on my right arm!

What, if any, discrimination or bullying have you encountered due to being tattooed?


Are your friends and family into body modification too? If not what do they think of yours?
My sister has tattoos but our parents do not like them at all!!! It was my sister that inspired me to get started with my own collection! aha!

Show us your favorite piece and talk us through it.
(I have attached a picture) My fave piece is this Moomin tattoo simply because of the detail in it. I absolutely love it and always get comments on it when it's on show!! xoxo

Which tattoo of yours has the most meaning or sentimental-ness behind it? Do you think all tattoos should have meaning?
Yes, I think they all do because they're special at some time or another. I think my most special one is my first because it started everything off and was the beginning of my new collection. I've added to it over the years and now butterflies fly all the way down my back ending in a big butterfly on my ribs (OUCH!) which is a reflection of that very first butterfly. I like to think that they're looking over me and guiding me on my tattoo journey!

Are you planning any more?
Always!! Haha!! I just can't decide what or more importantly where to put it!! I have one which I kinda want to cover up so I guess I could add there but I want to take my time and make sure I make the right decision.

In one sentence what would you tell someone who asked, 'Did it hurt?' ?
I'd say, have you had kids?? So, did it hurt?!!?

Leave us with some words of wisdom regarding body modification.
Your body is a temple, how you decorate it is up to you!!!

  2. Oooh, lots of cute little pieces! I love little one, despite always opting for larger pieces myself. The Moomin one is super cute!

    1. Isn't it? I don't think I've ever seen a Moomin tattoo, but I love how simple it is!
