Why did I do it? I’ve been asked this question from friends, fellow staff, and my parents. Hmm…good question! 🙂 No really, I have kind of always wanted a tattoo. My dad had one when I was growing up and it was always always something embraced in my family, never looked down upon. Does it change who I am? Not at all. Might explain it more to people who don’t know, but doesn’t change me.
Ever since I delivered my precious baby 29 months ago naturally without meds and saw my body do what it was designed by God to do, I have reveled in the majesty of the female body. I care about it. I work out and enjoy how I look. I care about my hair, outfit, make-up, jewelry (had help from some friends with this! :)) and ultimately LOVE being a woman. I chose a tattoo I though was feminine, soft, and beautiful. I LOVE it.
I love that I defy an image that people conjure in their mind of those who have tattoos. I love being edgy. I love being daring and doing something without caring what people think.
That’s why, in case you were wondering! 🙂
