Well okay so we can just skip the sex part and I've never done drugs so that counts that one out too but I CAN talk about tattoos. Yes, Jo has tattoos. I have two in fact although I regret both of them at this point.
My first tattoo was a Native mandala with a bear claw in the middle that was suppose to be on my right hip. Let's just say that said tattoo ended up more on my thigh than my hip thanks to the tattoo guy being higher than a kite. :( Looking cute with a bikini was the whole purpose of getting the tattoo but now I'm just happy I don't wear short shorts anymore so it can peek out. The second tattoo was one of the "I am such a moron" tattoos that so many people get- someones initials. Yep, I put some jackass' initials on the left side of my chest when I was younger. Go ahead and say it...DUMB ASS!!
Which leads to the new tattoos I will be getting. I know, I must be a glutton for punishment at this point but now that I'm older and hopefully wiser (quit laughing Meg! I said QUIT!!), I have actually planned what I want to get and put alot of thought into them.
New Tattoo #1- This will be what has been dubbed a "tramp stamp" meaning it will be across my lower back because I don't want to cover my upper back with it and besides my stomach that's the only place big enough for it! My choice of tattoo for this area is a Phoenix. You know, the fiery bird? Not the city in Arizona people! Sheesh!
I already have a kickass design picked out and the reason I chose a Phoenix is because it has had alot of significance throughout my life as I've gone through hardships and been "reborn" strong and ready to face the world again. To see a picture please click on the link- HERE. It is the second one in on the top row on page six I believe. :)
New Tattoo #2- This will hold even more meaning for me because it has to do with my children. On this tattoo I will combine two of my favorite things- my kids and Egypt. This is going to be a cartouche with the first sound of each of my children's names on it in hieroglyphics. The reason I chose the cartouche is because it holds a special memory for me AND I feel that each one of my children are kings and queens worthy of such honor. HERE is the design I will be using for this one. It's the second one, top row, and page 12. I'd direct link these but the site won't let me. Sorry.
Tattoo #3- Last but not least is a symbol that I've been drawn to for many years. The Eye of Horus is probably what should have been my very first tattoo because boy could I have used it! This Egyptian symbol is said to protect the wearer from evil. See? Told you I needed it! To be honest, if I could put a tattoo on my kids (no, I'm not into kids getting tattoos don't worry), I'd put this on them too. Superstitious? A little. HERE is where you can see this tattoo. It's on page two, second row, first picture.
I'm sure you noticed that I didn't list a tattoo to cover up the initials on my chest. It's not because I want to keep the initials believe me! I just don't plan on doing anymore stupid tattoos and since I don't know exactly what I want to cover this spot yet then it will stay the way it is until I do. The only ideas I have thus far are a dragonfly or a lotus blossom but we'll see if anything else comes to me with time.
So that's it, I'm sure that was probably one of the most boring posts you've ever read in your entire life wasn't it? Next time I'll lie and say I have nipple piercings or something just to spice it up some okay? *wink* No, I don't really have nipple piercings...ARE YOU NUTS?! Ouch is all I can think of. Ouch ouch ouch!
