Got ink?

Got ink? I do!

I'm happy and relieved in a sense. I've wanted a tattoo for a long time, but didn't get one because I didn't know what I wanted and I was told not to. My parents always said that tattoos are permanent and ugly and who would want to scar their body?

Well, it's a nice thing to be able to pick what scars you. I have so many bumps and scratches and freckles and stretch marks that I didn't pick yet they aren't going anywhere. Why not pick something nice?

A tattoo is a permanent piece of art and I'm quite pleased with mine. It hurt less than I was expecting and J and I were able to spend some time together. I went first and then watched him get his.

I'm glad I waited until now. Nothing says "I'm 29" like getting your first tattoo.


  1. Uh, tease much? Any chance on what/where/why, or perhaps that's too personal? I was telling the bf that we're due for a big tax refund this year, why not get matching full back pieces? He says sure.

    I'll let you know how that turns out.

  2. I am also curious about what you got! I have a few tattoos that looking back I wish I hadn't gotten. I was younger and not so much the wiser.

  3. I'm dying of curiosity over here! Can't wait for a photo..?

    I've got one tattoo I got back in Grade 9 - it is awesome. Haha!

  4. No fair not posting a picture!

  5. Just making some late Friday Follow rounds! :o) Love your blog!


  6. M, I'll send you a picture. I didn't realize that I left out the details of the actual tattoo! It's a star on the back of my neck / upper back.

    Shelley, what's your tattoo?
