Body Image Issues – How are we supposed to stay calm with goddess girls among us?

So i am usually pretty happy with my figure, even when gradually rounding i know a new physically exerting fad is not far away from my daily routine. When reading fashion magazines or  watching the Angelina Jolie’s of the world, I have often taken pride and comfort  in saying to myself “their not real women, real women don’t look like that”. Well i was wrong. You dont have to travel the world to find these tropical beach babes – just the net.

I am always surfing the net these days mostly looking for new tattoo designs, and i am discovering hundreds of photos of the goddess girls. The worst thing about seeing these stunning figures is my reaction; chocolate, new clothes, maybe a hair cut and more chocolate. None of which helps me to look like this;

Good luck girls?


The art of tattooing is growing on me with speed. I have always loved drawing and painting and have recently been tattoos myself, but am now excited at the idea of becoming a tattoo artist. Many of my idols are tattoo artists and with tattoo becoming more and more popular the opportunity for developing unique style and still being able to be successful is among us. For the moment I will just keep drawing with the hope of developing a good enough portfolio to then get an apprenticeship how exciting. With the possibility of not getting into university infringing on my daily thought it is nice to have an alternative. I wonder wher and by whom I should be looking to be taught???
