Ok well recently I have been seriously stressed about school, college, scholarships, and what the hail I am going to choose as a career so I can choose a college and all the fun, joyous crap that goes along with that since I am entering my Senior year of High School. Just the day before yesterday, I had a break down in front of my family after fighting with my sister for the up-teenth time, and I confessed everything that was so stressing me out; school, college, career, relationships, you know, the whole senior year stressful things haha. They decided that they will let me decide for myself, I can drop a few of my AP Classes (since the homework is waaay too much since I am taking two that have a lot of summer homework to boot) so I can focus on my career.
A couple days before then, one of my friends of two years asked if I can draw him a tattoo of his last name engulfed in calm flames (I haven't started yet tehe) and I mentioned this to my parents they thought is was a cool idea so ya (I should probably work on that lol). I also have this thing with dyeing my hair (hehehehe...). I have dyed it many colors; light brown and dark brown, dirty blonde, brunette with bleached underside, brunette with pink underside (one time with dark pink, another with a highlighter pink), and most recently, burgundy (soon to have dark pink underneath tehe ill post pics
) and for my 18th birthday, I am (hopefully getting a bellybutton ring and a tattoo (depending on cost...) and my parents came up with the idea of me becoming a tattoo artist, needle gun, designs, and all!
Before now, I have looked at being in the medical field, as a doctor, surgeon, RN, etc etc, because the pay is amazing, but that wasn't really what I wanted, it was mostly what my mom wanted me to become since that is what she is working towards. I liked the idea of saving people and getting payed to do it, but the problem is, I am afraid that stabbing people with knives, cutting them open, taking things out, replacing them, and blood just isn't me... I like most people, but even if I hate them, I don't think I could cut them lol. I have also looked at Illustration, which is something I really like. I was interested in Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration for video games and books and stuff, and I still am, but problem is, any college I look at, that type of degree is sooo expensive! It's painful! Besides that, there's also all the other stupid costs too, so it really adds up :/ Now that I have looked at becoming a tattoo artist, and the more and more I think of it, I think I could do it and fit in perfectly
Some things about me, I looooove changing my hair color to different ways and things, I want to get some piercings on my bellybutton, ears, and maybe a cute nose one, and I would also like some tattoos. All those things would probably scare patients/clients away if I decided to be in the health field... I would probably be seen as a psycho yet cool artist if I was to join the gaming field, which isn't bad hehe, but I think I would fit in the tattoos business. Sure there will probably be some things I would have to work on, like my self confidence, outgoing-ness, different type of art, blah blah blah, but I really think I can do it
What do you guys think???
