Summer Playlist — Get Tattooed

I’ve wanted a tattoo since I was about 6.  As a kid, I didn’t really know what tattoos entailed but I knew they were permanent, pretty, and thoroughly disapproved of by my parents and that was enough for me.  When I was in college, I decided to get a koi fish on my upper thigh but for various reasons, that never happened.  As I’ve gotten older, fear of needles and allergies has held me back (I can’t even tolerate stainless steel in piercings).  But I keep planning my tattoo — the one the Hubs has finally said he will drag me to, kicking and screaming, if I haven’t gotten it by the time I turn 40.  I guess that’s something to look forward to about turning 40.

For about 3 years, I wanted a tattoo based on this song.  Every time I hear it, I still want that tattoo.  And I still love this song.

  1. As a tattooed person, let me tell you — they’re addictive. Once you have one, you keep wanting additions to it or other tattoos in other places… it never ends! (Dear Sweer Mama has 2 and is planning her third, I have one I want revamped) And they don’t hurt as bad as you’d expect… just try to avoid getting them anyplace that’s right over a bone. The more fat you have, the better!

    • I have heard that about the bone — no tattoos around the ankle for me, thank you very much! I have about 3 or 4 ideas for designs that I keep kicking around, the difficulty for me is finding a place I want to put them where it won’t look too weird as I age.

  2. Woefully, ridiculously belatedly… my mom got her first tattoo well after she turned 40. She now has two and intermittently plans her third. (And her first was around the ankle… she didn’t find it as bad as the one on the thigh, go figure…)
