the story of my tats.

aint gonna lie.
when I first wrote my title of this post
i had to remove the words tits & replace it with tats.
tit for tats?  no cool story for them. i know, i know. dammit, right?

what i AM here to show you today are my tats.

my tattoos people. i have two of them.
nothing too special - random and dumb.

do i regret them... naaaahh! no way.
why? they are both memories and tell a story.
i'm linking up with RavenA Mommas Desires & Pacifiers
with her lastest  link up.  If you have any make sure to hop over there & show us your Tattoos!.   If not, come anyway.

A Mommas Desires and Pacifiers

so here it goes.
I like to call my very first one...
The Independent College Student.

once upon a time i was the aggravating no-it-all teenager that my
mother tried to comprehend but couldn't.
i was independent & thought everything i did was right.

i also had a best friend who is still my best friend who was
only my mother loved her - her name is Danielle.
Living the college life we were. very much so.

going out. drinking. partying. drinking. working.
oh and school, yes.
we were out and about having the time of our lives.

Dani and I had this thing were would draw a little heart on our left foot
with a pink pin outlined in blue that was located in between our
two smallest toes...
like so

one random Tuesday we got really excited {talking about getting this tattoo}
and said we were going to do it.
So we did.

however, when we got there we decided that we no longer wanted the cute little
pink & blue heart that we wore on our foot for like 2 months straight...
we wanted a butterfly.
yes. a butterfly.
my nerves drew in & my amazing mother popped in my head.
{she's gonna kill me if she finds out}
so  not only did we decide {since we were best friends & all it made since}
we decide on a random butterfly but we also decided to each pick a color and then together pick a random color. Fun right?
we also decide to relocate our tattoo due to me freaking out and due to Mama
chopping my head off being she F.R.E.A.K.E.D about my belly button piercing.
did I mention I was 18? Okay.

so we decided we were gonna locate it in our bikini area... hidden.
danielle actually has hers right above her bikini line & mine is completely hidden.
you have to be... shown or i'm naked.
most of the time i forget it's there. really.

So basically what if you think about it in about 40 years
from now
my beautiful butterfly will become a moth.

pretty right? not!

So here she is friends...

Ugly Fugly, right?

danielle and I love our tattoo. we do.
we also bless our own hearts more every time it comes up
in conversation.

Next up ...
The Birthday Party
Not huge story here.
basically, Aaron's sister is pretty much in love with tattoos & we always do something for our birthdays celebrating somehow.
so we did with tattoos.

THIS time I wanted mine to show.
being I wear heals 90% of my life I wanted it on my foot.

this one too, I forget it's there.
until people bring it up like my client did last year.

Client: You married?
Me: No.
Client: {speechless} with this gosh awful judgemental face
Me: Why are you looking at me like that?
Client: I always thought you had a man in your life.
Me: I do.
Client: You do know that is the symbol for lesbian?
Me: No. I didn't. Thanks though.


The End.

The Independent College Student

I always enjoy seeing other people's tattoos and hearing the stories/meanings behind them :) Thanks for sharing!

Anonymous said...

Bahaha!! I never knew that was a symbol for that! Learn something new every day.

I have one similar on my left foot of four stars in a line near my toes that we can call Spring Break Trip '08. Chyeah.

♥ Marcy ♥ said...

LOL. Those are at least funny stories to tell! I don't care if it means you are a lesbo or not I dig the one on your foot and I have a tattoo on my foot, too! Love

Ashley said...

Love the new blog design! Did you do it or have it done!?

jessica said...

oh so funny. i also went and got a random tattoo with my college roomie...where we got them..on our butt cheeks! do not regret it at all.

the stories behind tattoos are always the best!

Carolyn said...

BAHAHAHAHA. Both of these stories are priceless. And it confirms that we should be friends. :)

Carolyn said...

Loved your post! I'm literally laughing out loud and I'm at work!!

Stephanie said...

Hahahaha can TOTALLY relate to your tattoos...except one of mine is on my ASS! Yes...my ass. Two random hibiscus. What I was thinking...I have no idea but I'm with you...I DEFINITELY don't regret it because it tells a stupid little story and I'll never forget running around the tattoo parlor with 3 of my best girl friends, our pants halfway around our ankles with our butts hanging out. We all got them in the same places...just of different things. WHY I chose 2 hibiscus is beyond me but whatevs!

I like your little feet tattoos! I think they're super cute and girly! :) Those stars are NOT a lesbian thing...your client doesn't know what they're talking about.

Stephanie said...

Alyssa said...

OH MY GOSH!! I had no idea that was a symbol for lesbian. You must have wanted to die!!

Karrie said...

Great stories!! I would have died if my client said that to me, it's something that *would* happen to me! :)
The stars look good!

Raven said...

not fugly at all!! I love the colors of your independent college tattoo! And those stars are not a sign of a lez, swear. I mean, since when are STARS the symbol for girl on girl action? Please. And yea, your tattoo stories basically take the cake from everything I have read so far. Made me laugh OUT LOUD. :)

Ashley said...

I love your little stars...lesbian or not =) I'm hoping to get one on my foot soon. Butttt since I just got 3 in 2 months I might wait a little while.
