Tattoo Teaser (31 Days, Day 25)

See the rest of my 31 Days of Awesome by clicking here!

Rick and I are out of town for an early anniversary jaunt to a city we used to live in -- Frederick, MD.  Our goal -- Christmas shopping in the antique stores.  We were successful (especially when I found a Fair Trade market), but one not so Christmas-y thing caught my eye.  A tattoo parlor.

Guess which good little kidlet is getting the purple otter from Kenya?

I have three tattoos, and all are incredibly important to me for various reasons.  They all came from a place of Sad, but have acted as totems or good luck charms for me.  This time, I wanted to get a tattoo from a place of Happy.  I'm going to have to wait until I'm home to get a decent picture, but I'll tease you with the ones I most certainly did NOT get:

Come back soon and see!

  1. Well I hope the skull and knife is one that you didn't get. Lol

  2. Looking forward to seeing your new tat!

  3. I will be back to see what you got. I am glad that this one is from a happy place.

  4. Looking forward to seeing your new tat!

  5. Can't wait to see the Tat. My tat has meaning, the meaning of freedom. After a 20 yr marriage 25 total I was done. I'd really love a new one to celebrate happiness! Thinking on the top of my foot....
