Re: [IP] Tattoos/Piercings Problems or Not?
Stormy - I just got my second tattoo over Mother's Day weekend!
Go for it!!
My only suggestion - rethink where you want it. Your calf will
always be visible. When you wear panty hose - when you're dressed in
evening wear - when you're the mother of the bride - when you're at a
business meeting. Etc. You get the point. It's more fun to have a
tattoo that is a secret...mine are both on my hips. Only people I
care to share the info with know it. I have to show them, I have to
feel like letting them in on the secret.
I healed just fine. Never even asked about my pump or if I was
diabetic. Hasn't changed one thing about how I care for myself. I
just have a secret - my husband LOVES it - my kids just roll their
eyes. But of course, I tell them they can't get one until THEY are
good luck - and always go bigger than you think. My first one is the
size of a golf ball - and I wish I had gone a bit bigger!!
