Tattoo please..

Well, we only go around once and at age 70 it is going faster and faster.

Lori, Kevin, Jared ,and Tyler went along to see if I was going to cry ( I had been told that getting a Tattoo hurt a lot.).

First, I had to pick out the Tattoo that I wanted which was a dragonfly, we flipped through a lot of pages looking for the "right one". The one I picked was bigger than I wanted , so they shrunk it down to an acceptable size. Now it was lunch time and my appt. was 2:30.

We found a "Mellow Mushroom" and ate the best pizza I had ever had in all of my days. After a short trip to Garrett's business for a look see. We headed back for my tattoo, with all looking on the game began, first one color. followed by five more colors. I did not shed one tear ! It stung a little bit.

Wallah, I have a tattoo of a Dragonfly on my right forearm !

Next year who knows??

Mom, I posted the picture for you (I cropped it down a little to really just show the tattoo.). Now the whole internet can see your ink...what next?

I knew you were colorful, here is our proof!

Zan said...

Wow, I love you're dragonfly. It's beautiful!!!

Leslie said...

Thanks, everybody, next year I want to get another tattoo, this one will be the Geico Gecko. I wonder if they would pay me advertise ??

Kevin said...

Yeah, Mom, you were quite the trooper for your tattoo.

I'd like to suggest that you go with a non-copyrighted gecko for your next tattoo to avoid any potential legal hassles. Of course, if you choose to rent your skin out as ad space that's another thing entirely!

Leslie said...

I might just rent my skin out, good thinking son.

Kelly said...

oh wow, it looks great! Will be very hard to top for next year!

Hi, Leslie! Just wanted to say Hi!

I also have a dragonfly tattoo, it's on the back of my neck. I have 6 total!

Nice tattoo-I love dragonflies! How very exciting for you and what a thing to do as a wiser lady later in life-I can relate somewhat-got my 1st and only tattoo at 37-some thought I was nuts!

Anyway, came to your site through another and another-love your writing and your bath salts recipe-just might have to try that.

Will come again. Happy blogging!

Here's to you! Blessings,
Leslie
