You may like it or you may HATE it. I love it!!!!
Rewind to my 40th birthday. I knew FOREVER that when I turned 40, I was getting my first tattoo. I wanted nothing more than for me and all my sisters to get our FIRST tattoo together, all matching and on the day I turned 40. Mission accomplished. We did it 5 years ago, and it was AWESOME!!!!
But when I was 40, I was still “modest” about tattoos. I wanted it basically where only I looked at it. It is on my right hip.
Fast forward to 45. Got a little braver. I want to see this one, each and every day, basically no matter WHAT I am doing. I want to see it.
I thought long and hard about this location, and was 100% positive this is where I wanted it put.
and the REAL valid reason I chose this location, is I am jewelry-phobic. Yep, I can NOT stand to wear jewelry. I have not worn a wedding ring for atleast 10 years, probably longer. I try to put them on, (earrings as well) but within MINUTES they come back off. The best I can explain it, is they feel like a vice on my finger. Same with earrings….feels like I have something heavy, HANGING off my ears, so it drives me nuts. I also forever wanted a mothers ring, but since I could no longer wear jewelry, I knew that was a bad idea.
Hence…the tattoo “ring”. I designed it myself, and all four connecting circles signifies the four members of my family. I am absolutely in LOVE with it!!!!! My husband loves it too (imagine that) haha….although he vows to NEVER have a tattoo…and that is fine too. To each their own.
Thanks to an old high school friend for doing his awesome work on me. I joke that his success is thanks to me, as I helped him pass Art class. His version of the story may be a little different. LOL
Next up, 50….and I can . not . wait !!!!!!!!!!!
50 is going to be really good in many many ways. I just know it. ;)
