Maci Bookout was one of the first Teen Mom stars...and she was also one of the first Teen Mom stars to get inked. While she continues to add to her tat collection, she has stayed pretty quiet about what any of them mean.

Now, the reality star has started blogging and her latest topic was her tattoos, which she has taken a lot of heat on Twitter for.

"My tattoos are something that I have always kept very private. Believe it or not," she wrote. "To me, they aren't 'things' that I got just to show them off. My tattoos aren't objects for me to brag about in hopes of building my ego. Yet, they are small reminders of my story. Lessons that have had a large impact on me and my journey. I think of them as pieces to my puzzle. No matter how big or small, they put me together. I love them, and I don't give a d*mn if you love them or not."

She also went tattoo by tattoo to explain what each one means (you can read all about it on her blog). Perhaps her most notorious tattoo is the word "Bulletproof," which she has written on her right shoulder. "The word has surprised me with a new meaning to my life every day," she explained. "It's a reminder to myself that no matter the struggle I happen to face in life, it will never be enough to break me."

She concludes with a quote from her friend and fellow tatted Teen Mom star Kailyn Lowry, saying, "I have chosen my tattoos carefully. Look closely. As tools, they may grant you a glimpse into the human I am. Equally, the may shield me from what you are if you cannot see beyond the colors inked into my skin."

We can't wait to see what she blogs about next.
