I am soon to be 47 uh...don't tell anyone...everyone thinks that I'm just pushing 40. So what do women pushing 40 do? They go out and get tatted! Getting tattoos, buying expensive red sports cars can be signs of a midlife crisis. I won't deny that it is probably why I decided to go out to get one. It was on the very day that I dropped my daughter off to college. I remember driving home and thinking; now what will you do with the rest of your life? You have raised your children...HEY! Let's get a tattoo!!!
It wasn't that spur of the moment. I had done research on it weeks before. I knew the shop I wanted to go to, and I knew that I just wanted a cute little ying yang symbol on my inner wrist. No biggie...so how did I end up with this???
I love it! But I wasn't really thinking of doing anything quite that big. Plus it f***ing hurt! AND people are lying if they tell you it doesn't. Anyways, the tattoo parlor didn't have any simple ying yang symbols--they had wings or skulls. I would have had to pull one off the internet so I decided that if I was going to do that, I might as well go for the kokopelli or a gecko (I'm happy I chose the kokopelli).
Yep...got a mid-life crisis tat.
