I've been thinking about it for a long time. I want to get one.
My only problem is I'm not sure WHAT I want to get- nor where to put it.
I DO know what I DON'T want tho.
I don't want Tweety, or a Butterfly, or any of the usual girlie, cutesy tats.
I want something unique.
I REALLY would like to get the first picture I ever saw of Paulius put on- maybe my shoulder blade- but I'm not sure about that. I am highly superstitious, and I'm afraid that it would be too much like having a lovers name tatooed on- it would doom the relationship. I know it's stupid- but I'm not sure I wanna take the chance. I just LOVE that pic of him tho- it looks like it should be on the jacket of a book - you know- the authors bio?
Sexy as hell, but I think I know what Pauli would have to say about that as well.
I've been pouring over tat design sites on the web and have saw a few that were nice, but nothing that really reached out and GRABBED my heart. And watching MIAMI INK on TLC at night during my lunch break hasn't helped either- they do some freaking AWESOME work- especially Kat with her portraits. We recently got tattoo parlors here in Carolina and I want to visit some and see some of their work too. If it's gonna be on me for the rest of my life I wont settle for an "OK" tat- it will have to be awesome artistry.
Now, I know some family and friends are going to read this and try to talk me out of it-(been there-done that already) so lemme save you some time and energy and just say...I've THOUGHT about it long and hard and put it off for YEARS to make double-triple sure it's not just a whim- and I'm going to get one regardless. Now if you STILL wanna try and talk me out of it fine- but the answer will still be the same.
Now if you have any suggestions as to what I could get PLEASE offer those suggestions to me.
And also, if you HAVE a tat- or know someone personally who does, tell me where is the most "painless" area to get one put. I KNOW the foot and the underside of the arm are two places I don't want to put them because of the pain-factor, but if you know of any others, lemme know.
Thanks in advance guys. I know I can count on input from y'all!
