Tattoos: My form of self-expression

Hope Denney, Reporter

January 24, 2019

When you go to the doctor and discover you’re going to get a shot most people don’t get too excited about it. I don’t either, but the feeling of having a needle puncture my skin 50 to 3,000 times per minute feels so liberating. The first time I decided to get a tattoo I was terrified.
