Now when it comes to tattoos and applying permanent ink to your body I’m actually neither for or against the idea, I’m sort of in the middle. You know, sitting on the proverbial fence.
But when I was about 21 I kind of considered getting a tattoo. “Kind of” being the operative words! I knew a girl who had a tattoo of a butterfly or dragonfly on the top of her foot and I actually really liked it. Then 2 things crossed my mind. One quite normal and the other quite random.
The first thing was the issue of the whole needle thing. You know the fact that getting a tattoo involves having a needle scrape over your skin while the ink goes in. Ouch, anyone. I’m bad with needles at the best of times, let alone having to sit still and patiently in a chair for an hour or so at my own will. No thank you, I think I’ll pass.
Second thing, and maybe a little odd, was I thought about my wedding day. The one day you’re all in white (in most cases anyway) with beautiful shoes and I thought to myself, I don’t think I’d like a tattoo on my foot for my wedding day. And you know the small detail of a tattoo being permanent was kind of relevant in this case!
And so I’ve never got a tattoo, nor do I plan to get one. Did I mention my immense dislike of needles?!
So now I’d like to hear from you.
Do you have any tattoo’s? Why did you get one or one hundred? Have you ever regretted a tattoo? Go on leave a comment, I dare you!
