With tattoos I waited untill I found something I really wanted on my body, not decided I wanted a tattoo and found something to get. Figured that way I wouldnt regret it later.
My first tattoo was a small heart on my hand. I got it after my gramma died at age 67. No women in my family have made it to 70 yet due to multiple medical problems, heart disease, diabetes, etc., so after she passed we decided to get the small heart on our left hands. My mom, aunt, and sister all did it too as a reminder to ourselves to take better care of our own hearts the way my gramma never did, and as kind of memorial for her. Now every time I lift a glorious greasy fry to my mouth I have a conveniently placed reminder to look at and stop me. Its a great small reminder that helps keep us on track with all our health goals. Then I have some flowers I drew tattooed down my thigh. Really arent as warped and dull as they are in the bad pic.
