    Every tattoo tells a story. Sometimes that story is, "I really, really like Tinkerbell and I don't care who knows it." More often than not, however, a person's ink is a reflection of his or her beliefs, personality, and personal history. It might be a tribute to a loved one, a quote that inspires, or a symbol that serves as a metaphor for a particular mantra.

    Feeling motivated to get some ink yourself? The London-based ladies ahead were kind enough to talk to us about what inspired their tattoos, which run the gamut from pop-culture tributes to pets to puppets, and give us the lowdown on their favorite local artists. As you'll soon learn, each badge has a deeper meaning than first meets the eye.
