Please Dont Tell My Mom

I wasn't sure if I was going to blog about this as many family members read my blog. But I have decided that as I approach 40 I'm a grown woman and I can make big grown up decisions without having to explain myself . So here goes I got a tattoo. (Please don't tell my mom please. I know Ill be in some bigggg trouble!)

But I did. I got a tattoo its kind of big but I love it. Its on my hip over some very flattering stretch marks. Its a sea horse. I got a sea horse because the female squirts her eggs into the males pouch and then she goes off gallivanting on her own. The male then clings to a weed and swells up and is forced to sit and waits for the babies to emerge. Now I know this has nothing to do with my life as its been years since any form of gallivanting has not occurred f but its a reminder to myself to maybe start doing a little galli every now and then and save some vanting for later.

I went to Daredevil Tattoo. When I got there it was filled with 18 year old boys covered from head to toe in tattoos. Rap music was playing at top volume. I thought run run now why you can. But I didn't I sat there the old lady in her career pants suit silently hoping a meteor would strike the shop before my appointment.

Finally the owner a nice more my age lady appeared and she took me into a back room. She played some blue grass (apparently this is where the old folk hang out) and helped me settle in for the tattoo which I will name Pain Fest 2009. Pain Fest 2009 consisted of me trying not to bite a hole through my purse while a needle poked repeatedly into my skin for an hour and a half. I tried to be cool but its hard with your shirt tucked into your bra strap as you sit in the equivalent of a human sewing machine. She was however very nice and getting this tattoo proves I'm not really old I'm just enhanced age wise.

So here it is my sea horse!

Just a reminder please do not tell my mom!

You are quite brave. I know you will love it and it will be worth the pain.

Tay said...

now THAT is a great way to hide stretch marks. I like the seahorse. :)

Heather said...

Good for you! I thought my Dad would be upset when I got a tattoo, but he actually didn't care. I guess when you get to a certain age, stuff like that isn't such a big deal anymore.

Cool seahorse!

Yay! I like it. I like seahorses now too- who knew the female seahorse was so stinkin' smart? And once you get one, you will want another. Trust me. Can't wait to see what you get inked next!

Suzie said...

This is actually my second tattoo its been 19 years since I had the last one so I felt like a tattoo virgin again. My mother was not too pleased by the first one not too pleased at all thus your promise of secrecy. I know I can trust you all however.

April said...

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Very cool! I think my teenage kids would fall over dead if I did that. You've got me thinking...

Sarah said...

Way to go! it's a beaut!

Helen said...

Oh my .... I'm quite impressed! I'm certain your mom will understand ~ I know I would! And I'm certainly old enough to be your mom ..........

Maria said...

You are a big girl! Do as you please! Good choice.

Veronica said...

I really like it.

MrsM said...

It looks fab! I would never tell your mom on you...especially since I am considering getting one despite the fact that my step mom refers to me as "the only smart kid we have" because I'm the only not inked (yet). I won't tell your mom if you won't tell mine!

Pam said...

It's great!

Michele said...

Really nice design! Did you draw it yourself?

I'm telling you, get a hold of some Percocet next time. It brings it down several notches (especially if you have a cocktail before hand. Did I just say that?).

Wow. And learning to drive. Crazy stuff! I like the new approach to hiding stretch marks though.

Annie said...

Love it - it's very cool!

I have three tattoos, I'm 31, and I've been hiding them from my mom for 11 years now. :-)

April said...

It looks great!

forgetfulone said...

Ahmmmmmm! I'm telling! You are brave. My sister and I were talking about this today. I just can't do it. It's the needle thing mostly.
