So lately in our house we've been having inky conversations. We being me, Cliff, Kallie and Emily. I think it all started after I saw Elsie's blog about it here. One day last week we are all sitting out on the patio talking and I ask Cliff what kind of tattoo he'd get if he was going to have one (or more). Without missing a beat he says, "Flames- on my shoulder going up my neck." He didn't even crack a smile, he was totally serious and we all burst into hysterical laughter. If he wanted flames on his neck I'd be fine with that but it was the first I'd heard of it so it was one of those really funny situations.
My siblings all have tattoos but none here. I just don't have any sign, symbol, word or image I want on my bod for all time. I see the beauty, artistry and self expression via tattoos but so far they aren't for me. The closest I've come so far is a henna tattoo which I totally loved and I think it would be a great way to test run a design.
