It's better than getting a tatt

I love art.
I have been noodling with the idea of getting some cool, small, unobtrusive tattoo. My sister threatened to remove it herself if I ever did, so I decided to get my hair cut instead.

My sister means no offense to anyone with a tatt. Go cousin Marie - hotter than hot new mother with a great head on her shoulders! Who knew?! Seen only if shown. Love it. She's got hetero women rethinking their status and EVERYONE JUST LOVES HER. She's edgy and cool. And a secret body graphic suits her. Maybe I'm just not cool enough.

It's all my running friend, Judith's fault. She's a 40-something 8-time (and counting ) marathoner. She's also a Master's Degree holding teacher with long blond hair and Ivory-girl skin. Her small, peace sign tatt just by her left shoulder peaked out and winked at me during a long summer run.

I know that...

  • For intents and purposes - a tattoo is permanent. Like having a child. You better be darn sure and not lube up with tequila before the act.

  • Regret closely chases the ink needle and often catches up. Once again, you better be darn sure.

  • The wrong, size, the wrong image and the wrong location can make you celibate for life and keep you from your dream job.

  • Aging tatts can't be pretty. Sort of like my neck right now.

  • This example may unleash edginess in your offspring.

I guess a haircut for now is enough. Next I'll wax my brows and then my betty. I'll put the tatt off a bit.

Here it is. The haircut, not my betty.

Spunky haircut! I've gone back and forth with the tatt thing for the past five years. Suddenly this summer, once 18, my son and my daughter come come with semi-matching tattos...a sort of "bonding" thing they had secretly decided to do together. Small, significant little designs that suddenly made my plan seem stupid!! Hated it when they beat me to it! So...I think you should go for it and don't think another DAY about it!!!

Hmmm...runnin' around.

About the tatt. Not to be confused with titt. I think I would go for it if it was small enough and in a hidden enough place that you could easily put it away and bring it out when you felt the urge. Like on your labia maybe. God I make myself laugh.

WTF?? 12 followers? I thought you weren't going to allow things to go beyond 11? LIAR!!

OMG five comments. Now six. You are really taking over the blogging world. I have just been told by the blog master of the world that I am the best blogger and that I am going to be paid a lot of money to show others how to do it and he kept asking how could I be so good and talented? And I smudge also. I invented it. Again, LMAO at myself.

And get rid of the word verification. You'll get more comments.

Not that eight comments isn't enough. I'm just sayin'. And I think a rose on the labia would be nice.
