We all know that tattoos are not for everyone. When I was younger, I always associated tattoos with motorcycle gangs. If I seen someone with a tattoo it would actually scare me. Never, in a million years, did I think I'd ever get one!
Fast forward 30 years - I find myself wanting to get a tattoo. Now keep in mind I used to have really bad skin allergies. Thankfully the older I get, the better this becomes. My mom always filled me with fear that I'd have a horrible reaction to the ink and it would scar me and look hideous. I did some research about skin reactions (there are very few), and decided to ignore mom's guidance and just do it!
Now I didn't want to get just anything. I figured if I was going to have it forever, it better be something that I loved. After searching for pictures for awhile, it finally hit me what I really wanted. A ladybug. Why a ladybug? Well, because after I had my daughter, I nicknamed her my little ladybug. I actually went crazy with them. They are everywhere in my house. She was and still is my Lucky Little Ladybug. So in her honor, this momma got her first tattoo. It's located on my left shoulder.
Tattoo number 2 came a short time later. It is not as symbolic to me as the first, but I still love it. I say the main star is me, the blue one is for Colton (my son) and the pink one is for Ash (my daughter). I had trouble with the yellow on this one. It scabbed up on me and when it fell off - it took the yellow with it! I've thought about getting it touched up - maybe when I get my 3rd. This one is located on the top of my right foot.
Do you have any tattoos? Would you ever get one? What do you think of them?
