To match or not to match?

As I was getting ready to meet a friend today I had a fashion dilemma. Do I color coordinate my jewelry with my tattoos or not? I love an armful of jewels, a giant stack of bangles, fingers full of rings. However, as I continue work on my sleeve (which will eventually be a pastel, colorful confection of desserts and candy), I wonder what”s a tattooed jewelry girl to do?

Do I only wear pastel pieces that match my tattoos, blue topaz, morganite, aquamarine or  do I rock out a black spinel bracelet, sapphire ring and emerald bangle? Is matchy, matchy the way to go? Now, I don’t want to clash. I know you’re probably asking yourself how a girl with a cupcake tattoo on her arm can be worried about clashing with anything, but I definitely think this is something I have to consider.

Now, back to the sapphire ring, that brings up a whole different issue. Hand and finger tattoos. I love them! I think they look great, especially on guys. But, I don’t have any and probably wouldn’t get them done because I’m such a ring girl. LOVE, love, love my rings, the bigger the better!! If I could figure out a way to strap a crystal ashtray on my finger I totally would.

Anyway, I wonder how many other tattooed Jewelry Freaks got dressed today and wondered what jewelry works best with their art, or does it really matter?

Tiaras and t-shirts, try it!!!


So, I’m a jewelry freak, as in F-R-E-A-K, can’t get enough of the stuff. Buy it, wear it, collect it, talk about it, shop for it (of course), gift it and design it. I love the idea of mixing different  periods, colors and styles. Like, layering a classic, wide aquamarine and diamond bangle with prayer beads and an evil eye bracelet.

The idea of dressing down more formal pieces by mixing and matching and throwing them on with a t-shirt, is such a modern fun way to wear your jewelry.
