Nadine Anderson always wanted tattoos, but she had to wait untilshe was 18 to ink her body.After her 18th birthday, she began covering her body with ink.
£15,000 on tattoos
Over the last five years, Nadine has spent a whopping £15,000 on tattoos. What prompted her dream to cover her body with ink? Well, she loved her dad’s tattoos growing up! She said:
I was the classic daddy’s girl growing up and seeing my dad covered in that I always knew I wanted to be like him and have all that kind of stuff.
Nadine revealed that she talked about her first tattoo with her dad, and he totally supported her:
I discussed my first tattoo with my dad, and he supported my decision he was like, ‘as long as you’re sure you want to do it’ so I went and booked my first tattoo with my dad.
The support of her family
Not every dad would react the same way he did, but we're glad he was on board with her decision. She started to explore what kind of tattoos she would get all over her body and explained her entire process, saying:
I was constantly looking at Pinterest forums and stuff looking at new tattoo styles that were coming out and body modifications, deciding how I wanted to look when I was 18.
Now Nadine’s body is 90% tattoos! Even her face is covered with ink. Apparently, strangers aren’t afraid to direct rude comments towards Nadine, but her friends and family are supportive of her new look. In the end, all that matters is that it makes her feel happy and confident.
