INKED | Christy from Novel Ink

Posted on Thursday, January 8, 2015 12:00 AM

For today's INKED post, I will be showing off my tattoos :)

Name: Christy

Website: Novel Ink

Tell us a little about yourself: I always suck at answering these types of questions, but I'll do my best.  My name is Christy and I'm 27 years old.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Jesse, and we have 2 beautiful kids, Landon who is 8 and Shyann who is 1 1/2.  I'm currently in Nursing School (I'm done in July!!!) so between school and the kids, I don't have a lot of free time, but when I do, you can find me with a book in my hands or on the computer blogging.

When did you get your first tattoo? My first tattoo is the dolphins (sorry, I didn't get a very good picture, it's on my back) and I got it when I was 18 years old.  My best friend and I went together and we got our tattoos at the same time.

When did you get your last tattoo? I'm not sure of the month, but it was sometime in 2014.  It's the quote - For those I love, I will sacrifice.

Do you have a favorite? Of course, I have to say the ones of my kids names, but other than those, I'm going to say the quote.  It reminds me that everything I'm doing or everything that I have suffered through is for my family.

Is there a special meaning behind any of your tattoos? Once again, I have to say the ones with my kids names.  But also the infinity symbol, my husband and I got them for our 7th wedding anniversary, and of course the quote that I mentioned above. 

Are you planning on getting anymore? I'm honestly not sure as of right now, but I absolutely love this ;)

Tell us a little about your blog: I started this blog back in June of 2012, back then it was called Christy's Book Addiction.  My main reason for starting the blog was to have somewhere to go to talk about my love for books since I don't know of anyone in real life that reads, or if they do, they don't have the addiction that I do.  It wasn't something that was thought out, I didn't do a ton of research beforehand, and I didn't realize how much work it would actually be.  But I absolutely fell in love with it.  I've had a few slumps over the years, once when I got pregnant with my daughter (morning sickness sucks) and I slowed down a lot once I started Nursing School back in September of 2013.  I actually thought about giving it up, school was getting harder, to the point where I actually had to quit work, and I just didn't know how I was going to keep it up.  But then I found Erica (who is amazing BTW), and I found that I had a lot more time since I wasn't working anymore and here we are.

Is there anything that you would like to add? I hope you all enjoy this feature and I hope you check back each week because we have some amazing guests for you all!
