Ok, ok, here I am   :)


It's done!  :D

It almost didn't hurt. I was very surprised how little it hurt. Very, very small potatoes indeed.

I'm very pleased with the result, although she made a mistake. Instead of a small circle below the lowest line, she made a dot. But tell you what, I don't care. I think it's good as it is.


Here it is:



And that's how it looks on my arm:




The three straight lines are similar to Heath's wrist tattoo. I put the two top lines a bit more apart than Heath's were, because they get a little broader with the years and Heath's would have blended into each other (I HATE the "would have"  :().
The rope I put between the lines stands for our cowboys  :D

The flower - I just liked it, no special meaning behind it.

Oh Chrissi, it looks great. I like the lines and the rope, I like the dot and I like the flower! Yahoo! Good job!

Any reaction from the family?

Now...good aftercare. No soaking in water, keep out of sun, and moisturize!

Thanks Leslie  :-*

Family ... the kids haven't seen yet (and don't know anything) because they're at their grandma's. I think the girls won't like it, because they strongly opposed to the mere thought of me getting a tattoo. But that's ok, sometimes they also do things I don't like  ;D. My little son will love it because of the flower and its color.

Jens likes it. He thinks it looks good (although he'll never understand the idea of getting tattoed). But he's fine with me getting one. But he didn't ask why I chose this motive or whether there is any meaning behind it. But knowing my husband, he probably figured it out. He knows much more than he lets out.
BTW, in the end I did tell him beforehand. Told ya, I was never any good at keeping my trap shut  ::) :laugh:

I'm sure my mother-in-law won't like it and my father-in-law will inwardly shake his head and think "she's nineteen, she can do what she wants" - but he won't say anything.

Why thank ya kindly Kelda and Mel  :-*


It really wasn't a big deal. I wanted one for so many years, but never went through with it. In hindsight, I think it was because I had not yet found the right motive. I always had thought of an abstract tribal, without any meaning. Now I have a tat that has a meaning to me and this is much better.
I've thought about it for some weeks and last week I had the idea how to connect the different elements I wanted symbolized. Suddenly it was just right.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''

Will you play my record? One-track mind!
