Tattooed Mama - Charlotte from 5currantbuns

Welcome to another Tattooed Mama and Papa interview! lets meet this weeks Tattooed Mama.........................

Tell us about yourself

I am a mum of five, wife to one, run two small businesses & a trustee for a national charity. I have never had a normal 9-5 job, I have been a dancer, a chef and am now self-employed. I run a small event company & work free lance for a not for profit company helping vulnerable people get back into work. 

Two of my children have additional needs, my son has Autism and my daughter has Achondroplasia a form of restricted growth. 

I love Pink Floyd & Harry Potter. 

My blog/insta is called 5currantbuns because my daughter was always singing it in the car when I was pregnant with no.5. 

How many tattoos do you have?

Two. One on my wrist and one on my hip.

What was the first tattoo you got and why did you have it done ?

I got them both done on the same day, on a weekend back in February 2011. 

I have 3 small stars on the inside of my right wrist and my (now) husbands signature on my left hip.

If you’ve got more than one tattoo which is your favourite and why?

I love them both equally...maybe when I add to them that will change.

How do others react to your tattoos?

I once had a girl from my daughters class start licking my wrist, when I asked what she was doing she told me the pen wouldn’t come off haha! 

I haven’t had a negative reaction yet, they are quite small and hidden. 

Do you regret any of your tattoos and if so why?

No not at all. They symbolise a turning point in my life.

Are you planning on getting anymore tattoos, if yes what are you planning and why?

Oh where do I start! 

I am having two larger stars, one on the back of each ankle/calf. These are two represent myself & my husband. I am also having Loki in Nordic on my rib cage, just waiting till I’ve stopped breastfeeding. 

I would like a few more but have decided on what yet. 

Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about your tattoos?

I remember the first time I saw my husband sign something, my first thought was what a beautiful tattoo it would make. We weren’t even together at that point. 

A few months later he went away for a weekend and I went with a friend to get it done. 

I also added the three stars to my wrist to represent my children from my ex partner. It was a messy and violent breakup which we had come through together...they were my stars in a dark place in my life. I have never added their new siblings to the ‘ink’ as it was specific to that moment in my life. 

Thanks to Charlotte for sharing her tattoos with us!  I absolutely lover her star tattoos.  Charlotte blogs over on 5currantbuns and you can follow her over on Instagram.

Are you a Mama or a Papa with tattoos?! Want to take part in my interview series?!  Then I'd love to hear from you!!
