Tattooed

In a symbolic, ten years in the making, spontaneous act of liberation...I got a tattoo. I second-guessed myself and considered skipping the appointment until I noticed that the parlor's symbol was a pirate ship. The signs came together in that moment and I swear I heard a faint, angelic hum being carried in the wind. Doubts also arised while sitting in a waiting room full of teenage boys and tattoo artists with obsene t-shirts on. I thought that maybe my tattoo artist, Chris, would be unable to draw the very simple, basic deisign that I wanted. I nearly walked out. Then he appeared, with a drawing that made me say.."Oh! Wow!" So...I am permanently branded with a gaelic trinity symbol that stands for my irish descent, my faith and my family. This all confirms my long-held opinion that I am so bad ass!

It is really not at all appropriate to post about getting a tattoo without including pictures. Or is said tattoo "bad ass" in more ways than one?

Congrats on your new tat! I didn't know you had a blog until now. It will be fun keeping up with your latest news.

I have always thought you were bad ass. It was your glasses in 8th grade that first gave it away.

I would have to agree with lobiwan though. It is bad blog etiquette to talk about your new tattoo without including pictures!
