bird had to go play volleyball (she's so involved) and wonger and i headed to
anyways sitting at these two establishments in the summer outside i couldn't help but notice all of the tattoo art around me. you'll find that in those neighborhoods and i can't help but stare/admire.
i love checking out tattoo's, i wish i could have a lot more than i do.
currently i have two, but i want twenty-two.
can someone please invent a tattoo ink that allows the tattoo to disappear in five years? cause that would make me really happy.
but i digress...
so my two tattoos.
my first one is pretty damn embarrassing.
i'm 19, and it's the summer in between my freshman and sophomore year of college. i'm at my best friend of the past 5 years swimming pool laying out.
well actually we were stoned* (sorry mom).
and during our baked stage we thought it would be a great idea to go get matching, wait for it.....friendship tattoos.
i know, i'm an idiot.
but my naive 19 year old stoned self thought it was a fabulous idea and we should walk to the tattoo parlor at that very moment. which we did.
we decided on a chinese symbol for friendship (looks like this) on our right hip. if we only knew how cliche we were being.
so after my friend and i got the tattoo we almost instantaneously stopped being friends - about two months after we got the tattoo. we got in a random fight, i went back to school and that was that. she's now married with children and when i do see her it is fine, we are adults now!
but with one dumb spur of the moment decision i have this thing permanently on my right hip.
i'll wait for you to stop laughing at my misery.
thankfully though the tattoo is more often that not always covered up.
except when... well you know.... when i'm you knowing**. (sorry again mom)
when a boy is lucky enough to actually see the "friendship" tattoo i have been known to make up different meanings for the tattoo. why? because i can.
-keep going, you're almost there!
-someone's getting lucky
at least i can laugh about it right?
now my second tattoo i LOVE. it is on my left wrist and 80% of it is covered by my watch daily. it's for me, not everyone else to see.
it's an exact drawing of the cross that my father wore around his neck everyday. it is a nice reminder of him.
first tattoo bad, second tattoo good - i always do end up learning from my mistakes.
so does anyone have any fun tattoo stories?
but please, PLEASE don't tell me you have a tasmanian devil or a tweety bird.
*jenna, i know you are reading this - just say no to drugs!!! unless you are with me
**jenna, boys have cooties, don't touch them until you are married. or until you perform the circle-circle-dot-dot cootie shot
