I have been talking for a long time about how I would like to get a tatoo. My daughter has several, and they are all so pretty. She also has multiple piercings. I really admire her free spirit, because I don't think I would have the confidence to carry all that off! Plus I work in business, where they kind of frown on personal expressions like that.
Megan has been encouraging me to go ahead and get a tatoo, but I have just been waffling and dithering about it. So for my birthday, she bought me one. :o) Her friend Ahza, who really does beautiful work, did it for me. I picked out a lotus with an om symbol on the middle petal, and Megan got one just like it the back of her neck. Mine is on my shoulder.
It didn't hurt at all, which surprised me. I was expecting pain, lots of pain. :o) Now that I have one, I just might get another one! :o)
