Valentines come early
As v-day gifts, John and I went out this afternoon and got a tatoo each. Crazy huh? We have been wanting to have a tatoo for a while, finally John initiated it. Found a place, got an appointment, and the rest is history.



Mine is on my back. John's tiger is so detailed, it took the guy two hours to do it.

Was it painful? Well, it only really hurt when he was doing the outlines, after that I didn't feel much. I think he did a really good job, especailly on hubby's tiger.

It's already itchy!

Must. Not. Scratch.

Ok, I thought it had been itchy before, but NOW! Oh my GOD! I don't know how Liz is coping, athough at least her tattoo is in the middle of her back, hard to reach there...but...AAARGGHH!!! I need to SCRATCH!!!

I wonder if there is a reason why Liz and John didn't tell John's family they were getting tattoos? Could it be because they were afraid of the reaction when we discovered that they were paying good money to have someone permanently disfigure their bodies!!! Hmm.... soon they will be poor and they are white and with tattoos .... hmmmm you know what's coming next!

Wait, there's more. Nan has just discovered a panda on John Edward's arm. Not happy ... Nan.

Maybe we didn't tell anyone because being adults we don't need anybody's approval before having anything done to our bodies. Maybe as adults, it's nobody's business but our own what we have done to our own bodies. Maybe we didn't tell anybody first because we didn't want to hear any self-righteous bullshit from anybody, not even family members, about what we can and can't do with our own bodies.

Maybe people need to think a little bit and calm down and read back over what they've written before immortalizing their opinions. Here is where I won't take my own advice.

You go, John!

Wonder why people still think we, as in adults, need to tell anyone anything at all. Wonder if my parents are reading. :)

anyway, I like Liz's tattoo. I always want something that represents motherhood and haven't found anything good. this is good! but I'm afraid of pain, so no tattoos for me. But, allas... someone come up with a good piece of motherhood pendant PLEASE!

By the way, are tattoos expensive to have done? I thought some view it as art, but I guess, as always, not everyone. Someone HAS TO complain about SOMETHING, apparently! And here I thought that was just an American thing. Doh!

Oh, while we are on two-part comments, I'll add that, maybe the chill pill shouldn't go your way, but SOMEONE else's way. :)

ps: isn't that Panda tattoo fake? Or is that considered "bodily disfiguration" too?

Hey, anyone else care to join in on the pms-parade? :)

John, I did not say you needed my approval or permission before having a tattoo done. I did say that you chose not to TELL us you were having them done. If you are so afraid of a negative opinion; of someone thinking that it looks ugly; then why did you put it on the net? It is your body and you get to choose what you do with it. However, I get to say what I think about your public display! Just because I think it is horrible doesn't mean I don't love you :)

And in regard to John Edward's fake tattoo - maybe some people need to go and buy a sense of humour. There were a dozen jokes in there, Joyce! :)

Blogger Liz said...

this is getting way out of proportion. i'm just going to say this and final message, and I don't care whom I'm going to offend at this moment. I'm pissed off and I can care less. it's our body and money, everybody just shut the fuck up and mind your own business.

bravo!
oh, and, jokes are supposed to be funny, by the way, in case people don't know that.
