My sophomore year of college, I wanted to get a tattoo. My mom didn’t just talk me out of it. She screamed me out of it. “You will not get a tattoo! Do not put a single mark on that body I gave birth to!”
At the time, I wish I hadn’t even said anything and gone out on my own. Ask forgiveness later-type of mentality.
Now that I’m an adult, damn am I glad I listened to my mom and she talked sense into me. I’m sure whatever cute design I would have picked at the age of 19 would be vulgar to me now. A permanent etching on your body. Thank God I listened to my mommy!
I can’t say I’ve seen in-person a tattoo that I really like. I can’t believe they’re fashionable! I do like that Lindsay Lohan has the word ‘breathe’ tattooed on her wrist. Has something to do with her asthma. I also like that it’s barely noticeable. I was thinking of doing something similar–a saying or some kind of text. But people have talked me out of that too.
What do you think about tattoos?
