attoos are an investment like no other,
a permanent fixture on your skin for the
rest of your life. Here are some things
to consider when investing in this form
of artwork.
T
Design
While knowing what you want for
a tattoo is essential to design, originality is another big thing to consider.
“You should never think of people’s
judgments of your tattoos, but make
sure it’s original to you and not something everybody can go out and get
because it should be special,” tattoo
enthusiast Cassandra Brisard said.
inked. The degree of pain
varies.
“Every single person’s
pain tolerance is different,”
Brisard said.
While her first tattoo hurt,
the ones to follow were easier
to handle.
“Don’t be afraid of the pain
because it’s worth it,” she added.
Price
Aftercare
And like any investment, good artwork is going to cost a good chunk
of change. For Brisard, one tattoo
cost $850, not including tip.
“Honestly, good artwork is not
cheap,” Brisard said. “Cheap art is
not good art. You’re going to live
with it [your whole] life, so you
might as well invest in it.”
Pain
Pain is inevitable when getting
It’s important to follow your
artist’s guidelines when it
comes to tattoo aftercare.
On Guam, sunscreen is
another aftercare product
you don’t want to forget.
“The sun will make
your tattoos fade, especially on Guam,” she
said.

These women have transformed their skin into canvases, illustrating life,
love and experience in
the form of tattoos.
While their indelible
marks capture attention with their
beauty and design, the tattoos
also capture who
these women
are, telling
their stories
like nothing
else can.
Here, they’ll
share the
meaning behind their ink.
J
ezzilyn Eclavea took a different take on her family tattoo
with sugar skulls and roses.
“Everyone, usually, they get
portraits or little symbols. I
was always into sugar
skulls,” she said. “It’s cute
and it’s something I’m into
[and] could represent my family.”
On her arm Eclavea bears a combination
of roses and sugar skulls, with each skull
representing a different member of her
family: one for her husband, another with
a bow for her daughter and a small one
at the back of her arm for her son.
Flowers graze her left thigh and ankle
against a background of flowing water
that crashes down to her ankle.
For Eclavea, the ink won’t stop there.
“There’s more to be added,” she said.
“I’m not finished yet.”

P
aris DeLaquil’s tattoos are a tribute to
Guam, which changed her perspective
on where to live. DeLaquil’s tattoos
complement the contour of the female
body with most of the art featured on
her back and thighs. The right side of
her body is covered with different colored flowers, flowing down to her left
thigh with a phoenix.
The left side of her back features a sunset, along with
the powerful words, “Where words fail, music speaks.”
The art trails down to the front of her right thigh with
an ocean theme for the beauty and peace on Guam.
“What makes it so beautiful is kind of the tranquility and
all the serenity and nature that surrounds us,” DeLaquil
said. “So I don’t want to lose that, even when I leave
Guam.”

C
larissa Torres’s tattoos represent her
love of music, life
and family. Her
right arm features
zodiac signs for
each family member: a full moon for
herself, lioness for her sister, a crab for
her mother and an Aquarius and Gemini
for her father and her son. The rose she
bears also represents her mother and sister, another testament to family.
Torres also wears a broken heart with
stitches on her left shoulder, representing
the people in her life who hold her together.
Her left arm features lyrics from the
band Tool that speak of living and celebrating the moment, while other tattoos celebrating music and her
favorite bands grace her body.
“Music is a powerful thing,” Torres said. “It heals you emotionally
and mentally.”
