After 3 years of planning to do this, 3 years planning to face my fears and just jump in with both feet, I finally got my first tattoo!
First of all - I took this pic with Sean's new phone (and I hate him cuz his its awesome and I'm jealous)...Anyway!
It is written in Scottish Gaelic and means "Remember those you come from". Jake Dalton at Miller Cotton's Tattoos in Springfield, MO was the artist who put it there and, even though it was 10 at night and he'd worked a 12 hour day alone, he was incredibly kind and made me feel at ease.
The pain was nowhere near as bad as I had expected....but, I'm not ready to dive into my first full color back piece or anything :). My BF Jenn said it felt like needles going into your skin over and over again....exactly. There were only a few times I winced, but most of the time I could tune it out while we talked. I can NOT wait for my next one.
My mother was furious, as was her boyfriend/fiancee...my sister and brother are in shock that I actually did it. Me? I'm just excited that I'm officially the black sheep of the family :))!
