I think they can be fascinating and beautiful, but I'm not ready to commit.
They're so.... permanent.
When I meet people who have tattoos I usually ask about them; what they mean, how old they were, how they settled on that design, who they went to, etc... It's a great conversation started and a good way to get to know somebody.
I've decided that if I ever do get a tattoo it will probably be of a dolphin (my favorite animal) with "Agape" or a scripture with it... maybe my kids' names... who knows. Obviously I haven't decided on anything yet.
You see, I've got requirements first. If I can find a place on my body that fits all these requirements I might actually get one.
- Must be in a place I can actually easily see it.
- Must be in a place that I can easily show people (not embarrassing)
- Must be in a place that can be covered up, especially for special occassions and formal situations.
- Must be in a place that will not get all gross and stretched out if I get pregnant again or super fat.
But for now, I'm not ready to get one. What if I regret it later? Guess I'll just stick with the temporary ones. My kids love them... so do I!
