Well--I did it! Last night Jeff and my groovy friend Jayna took me to 6th St. Studio in downtown Boise and watched me get my first tat. I have to go back to get it finished, but the first part is done. The word "life" is etched forever on the inside of my right wrist in white ink. Apparently, white ink is the devil according to the artist who did my wrist. Next week he'll do the word "wonderful" on the inside of my left wrist. I love it. And I loved the whole experience too. It was weird, because I am not usually into pain, but it was a high and I think I'm hooked!
It felt like a bee was stinging me when he started. A really angry bee. But as he continued, the pain turned into some kind of wonderful hurts so bad kinda feeling! Jeff thinks I'm the bomb, and I am! Jayna has 9 and plans more! Jeff is getting one on his left forearm soon as well. I hate to be like everyone else (every white suburban housewife is getting pierced and inked), but mine is for me, not really for the world to view. That is why I went with white ink. It looks like a scar. I chose the words for two reasons.....number one, my life really is wonderful, and number two, I love the movie "It's a Wonderful Life.
After we finished there, Jeff fed us and took us out to a great dive bar for shots and karaoke! How much fun was that? Jayna sang her fool butt off and had everyone dancing. We really had a blast and I'm not at all disappointed in my decision. I highly recommend it.
Until next time, me.
