I get on a tattoo kick every so often. Since I was 18 I’ve come up with tattoo ideas here and there and convince myself I want to get it. Then I don’t and the phase has passed.
But then six months later I find something else. Totally sure this time I’m definitely going to take the plunge and get inked. And guess what? I don’t. I’m too damn chicken and too damn indecisive. And worried how I’ll look when I’m 60. And worried that what I like is trendy. And worried it will hurt. And worried I’ll change my mind. Or the tattoo artist will be drunk.
My heart is racing a little right now just thinking about it. This sums up my personality.
Right now, I’m on another “let’s get tattoo’d!” kick. And when I’m on them, I’m ON THEM. I have a list of about 7 tattoos I’d like to get right now. Ridiculous? Yes.
I’d like to show you my ideas and would LOVE to see your tattoos. And hear about your experience. Do you regret it?? Love it??
First and foremost I want to get something that involves my children. I’ve wanted for about a year now to get their first names in cursive on my wrist. Something like this:
But I’ve come to also like having their first and middle names on my side/rib cage like this – which is what I’m leaning towards at the moment:
That placement, but with this font:
And since Guy and I’s fifth wedding anniversary is in September, I thought it would be cool to get matching tattoos. Our wedding date in roman numerals:
Oh, and I like birds:
See what I mean?? Indecisive. I’m really considering the side tattoo. And I’m really close to pulling the trigger (although history says I won’t.) But first I think I need to do a few months of ab workouts.
