I Don't Really Have A Title for This Post

The radio station I listen to has been doing a giveaway every weekend for the past, at least year or 2, for a gift certificate towards a tattoo. I have been trying to win one ever since the beginning, but not for me. Instead, I have wanted to win it for Mrs. P's husband. He has a great idea for a tattoo that symbolizes his sons and I wanted to give it to him as a gift.

Well, this past weekend, I won! I finally won! Yay! I was so excited until I learned by reading the certificate, that it was only good for the person who's name was on it, mine. (they don't tell you this in the advertisement) I called the place and asked if I could still give it to my friend if I was there when he got it, but nope. Only I can redeem the certificate for myself.

Oh, Crap.

Of course, the thought of getting a tattoo has crossed my mind. I have always known what I would get, should I decide to get one. It would be the outline of a star no wider than an inch on the top part of my bottom (so no one would be able to see it unless I wanted them to). Now that I have a certificate, I don't know if I actually want to go through with it. It's either get a tattoo, or waste a good certificate that someone else could have used.

I brought it up at work to my staff this weekend and they all think I should get one. But, I don't know. Will I regret it later on if life? Will I not like it at all? Will I become "addicted" to tattoos? I have always had a problem with women who get really large tattoos that make them look tacky. But this one wouldn't be big, so would I become a hypocrite?

So, I pose this question to my readers...What would you do?

Get it! If it's not larger than an inch & you can hide it, then definitely go for it. I have one on the back of my neck, about an inch & a half and I thought I'd regret it but havent yet. The best part is my hair covers it so I dont ever have to worry about my employer saying anything :)

I would get it. I've always wanted one but I've never done it. One day I will!!! Take this as a sign that it's time. :) XOXO
