The Color is Red
Red and Inked!
So I have once again changed my image. Some call me the human Chameleon because you cannot distinguish the similarities in my photos. Well many ask why the red hair E.? In turn I say because its how I feel inside, colorful, bright, happy, joyful, and flamed up. My life as you all know hasn't been peaches and cream it has been a horrific roller coaster ride from the inferno below.
I have found comfort in the way I look and it describes me well. I have been struggling with my weight and my appearance. As I spoke in my previous hub "Your Ugly I'm Beautiful" Many judge the book by its cover. Sunnie Days made valid points to a comment I posted on a hub by SubRon7 titled "Today Let's Dress Provocatively" too many are profiled by the way we look, dress, or present ourselves. My mother and grandmother have very different opinions in the way I look. They state that "How can a woman that was raised by a grandmother have tattoos and red hair? How can a woman with an education have tattoos all over her arm? What am I representing? they claim I represent trash! I beg to differ their opinions but it is a free land and they are able to speak what is on their mind. Does it hurt me? A bit because my outer shell should not define my heart and my soul. And they are subjecting that the way I look on the outside justifies my inside awareness.
When we walk the streets they are quick to judge ones appearance and how they look. Are we to judge anyone? Let’s put it this way when I arrive to my mom’s house or my grandmas I have to put on a sweater because I am not free to show who I am. I have to hide what they call "My Ugliness" Do I think its fare? No I do not! Reason why, because they should love me for who I am not what I am, and it is done to frequently. I cover up because I love and respect the ones who have been there the most. They may see my appearance as a defect but it does not under lay my love for them.

Questions and Answers about Me!
Do you feel secure with your appearance when in public?
Sometimes, I do feel like if people are starring and passing whispers. They don’t know me so why judge me is how I feel. I’m just a red headed girl who expresses her beauty that is pouring out with bright colour.
Why so many tattoos?
Well, didn't get my first tattoo until I was about 25. I started off with one thinking I will never get another one these things hurt like a mother. Then the second one came and that one hurt more than the second, then thought ok that's it no more for me this one hurt. Then little by little I got a third then fourth then so on.....
Do you find yourself addicted to getting tattoos?
Yes, because I like the pain. It is self coping with what I have been through. Keep in mind I was abused one way or another growing up so I no longer desire the domestic violence but I became immune to the pain. So the only way to facilitate what I lack is by self inflicting it. Yes it is bizarre, but that’s how I feel.
Do you think that will change in time?
I believe it will. I am slowing down on the ink. I have 5 more to go and I will be completely done.
Are you attaining the closure you are seeking or will you be in the near future?
Yes I have learned that looking back is not allowing me to walk forward. Every time I look back I end up tripping and falling over a rock I didn't see because my head was turned the other way. So that decade of hell will be soon demolished and turned to salt.
Celebrities With Red Hair and Ink
With all that said I think woman with tattoos and red hair are beautiful. BUT, not a lot of woman can pull off the red hair and tattoos. I think it comes with character and personality. Like I could not pull off blonde that is a no way Jose!!!! Well I just am happy with myself in general and find myself a well rounded girl. I wish that many people wouldn't be so judgmental of our character and slander our appearance. Please leave your thoughts and comments on what you think!
