Wordful Wednesday - Mother/Daughter Tats

My tat right after it was finished.
It's no longer glossy or red.

After a few years of talking the talk, Shelby and I finally walked the walk.

My Mother's Day gift from her this year was matching Mother/Daughter tats.  We went in last Friday and had them done.  Shelby found the ying yang cats design online and it was also her idea to have our writing on each other's tats.  Mine is in her writing, and vice versa.  Above my tat are the words "My Moommy" and hers states "My Elby".  It's the nicknames we've called each other for years.

The tat placement wasn't the same.  Mine is on the right arm.  Shelby's is at the center of her back.  She has a higher pain tolerance in that regards.  This makes her ninth tattoo and my second.
Shelby laying there like it's nothing.

My first tattoo was almost ten years ago of a red guitar as a memorial for my father.  I've always been firm that I won't get a tat unless it has an absolute special meaning.  And that's why I was okay with this one.

Did it hurt?  Yeah.  Was it intolerable?  No.  It took a tad under an hour and that's enough for me.  Any bigger or longer, and I'd go crazy.
What's your plans for the day?
Oh, you know, paying for pain and permanent ink.

Shelby can't deny me now.  Same for me.  We're forever inked together.

Do you have any tattoos?  If so, how many and what are they?
The brown "dirt" look is the smudge that happens right after a tattoo.  It washed away.

I don't have any, but my husband does. He actually had a tattoo gun, and gave himself tattoos. Crazy man! I like the idea of getting something that is connected to someone else.

I love that y'all did this together! I've always been too afraid to get one because of the pain factor, but I love seeing everyone else's body art!
