Why I love tattoos.

People ask me all the time ‘why you have tattoos?’ like it’s a bad thing. What they don’t realise it’s the way I view tattoos.

So today I’m taking up some time to explain my viewpoint and to announce that from now on, I will share short stories of inked Cypriot fans of Aimerlavie. If you wish to share your love of tattoos please feel free to send me a message on my page.

So back to our topic for the day- Tattooing is a form of art. It’s like painting, drawing and photography- the only difference the canvas is your body. I enjoy watching artists all over the world creating all these beautiful pictures of nature and humans. I feel ecstatic when I see a tattoo artist performing- between the pain, the noise of the machine and the ink, I feel stronger the excitement of a new piece of art coming into life. 

So why I love tattoos?


It’s a way to express myself.


I want to remember important moments of my life. Each and every tattoo I have on my body was made after an event I wanted to cherish forever. If I ever forget who I am, I take my clothes off and look in the mirror and find out who I am again.


Life is too boring without tattoos.


They are so goddamn beautiful- and cool- and this and that… 🙂


Tattoos inspire me to be courageous and creative.


To be honest it’s an addiction! No one I know has just ONE tattoo!


Tattoos attract weird and crazy people I wouldn’t meet normally.


It’s my art- I like to search and study how a design can be a little bit more Marianna.

I have a few tattoos spread on my body, but my favorite one is a quote on my right arm I dedicated to my son, made by a dear friend and an amazing artist, Dhalsim Kompi (make sure you check out his studio and book an appointment with him asap).

That’s all for today!

If you enjoyed my post, stay close- more tattoo lovers are coming soon with their stories.
