Tattoo Tuesday – Jen Greyson


Jen, welcome to Tattoo Tuesday. Your five questions start now:  

  1. How old were you when you got your first tattoo? I was 18
  2. How many tattoos do you have? If only one, do you want more? I only have one, and I’ve always thought I’d get more. I’m a big scuba diver, so I’ve wanted to get a dive flag on my hip….but I kept waiting for my hips to get to that “perfect” size. I need to just do it!Image
  3. What inspired you to get your first tattoo or favorite tattoo?  Tell me your tattoo story. I was very into dragons and I found this wicked image of one. (Fantasy writer, you know 😉 Unfortunately, the parlor I went to had just hired a new artist and instead of getting the guy I wanted, I ended up as this chick’s guinea pig….it’s always looked like a jail tat (nothing against jail tats) but it could have been such a great tat (it looks pretty much nothing like the original image!). Now it’s twenty something years old, and looks awful. I’m secretly hoping someone will hear my story on your blog and want to do a tat makeover *laugh* I learned a very valuable lesson about speaking up for what I want though.
  4. Tattoos on a significant other, like or dislike? Explain why?  I wouldn’t mind if he had one. Maybe a nice tribal around his arm (how cliche, I know, but so hot). Funnily enough, out of the four married couples we hang out with, all the girls are tatted, but none of the guys.
  5. Do the character’s in your books have tattoos? If so, pick a character and tell me his or her tattoo story? Why was this story incorporated in the book? Always! I love ink. Love everything about why someone gets one… Because like you said, there’s always a story. My time traveler, Evy, was a custom bike builder before she started fixing history so she had tats before the story started. Now she gets them at the beginning and end of every history alteration. They mark her time since time no longer has meaning for her. The last one she got was from a tattoo artist in ancient Spain.

  1. It’s definitely important to get the artist you want. A two hour job for them is a lifetime for you. I have a slightly disastrous one on my hip – a combination of a bad artist and a rather wriggly customer :-/

  2. Jen sounds great! I’ve been reading a book that had me thinking of you, Sydney. All the people in it have a tattoo that symbolizes a secret power, and it comes to them when they are sixteen. I’ll have to go find the title and recommend it for you!
