In my late teens and early 20′s, when most young adults are going through that rebellious or ‘find myself’ stage, I was already married and far more settled than most people my age. I’ve never lived by myself. I literally moved out of my dad’s house the day I got married and moved into an apartment with my husband. Jason being 6 years my elder and me being the rip old underage of 18, about the most questionable thing I ever did was participate in a little underage drinking. It’s really pretty easy when your husband can buy it for you. At that point in my life, getting a tattoo never crossed my mind. Fast forward about 9 years and I’ve decided that I want one. Nothing crazy or blatantly out there, but something reserved and that I can cover up.
I’ve all but decided I want it across the top of my foot. Despite browsing designs for the last three years, and browsing often, I can’t settle on anything. I’m trying to see myself at 60 and I just haven’t found anything that I think my grandkids will think is cool (or that I won’t look back at and wonder what the hell I was thinking.) I see these really awesome tattoos all the time… tattoos that literally make me say ‘wow’… and I just can’t see them on me. I’m hoping that something I find will grow on me enough that I’ll eventually get my ink.
Here are some of my recent finds…
Do you have any tattoos? Something awesome I should consider? I’d love to see them!
