    Hi Kirin,

    To tattoo or not to tattoo?

    Well, I lived a very strict and proper life, UNTIL I turned 60. At 60, for my birthday, I celebrated with my first tattoo. I wanted to have something that I knew I had but no one else would know. The artistry was done on my left hip. I had a tattoo done of a red rose. Then on my 61st birthday, I had a tattoo of a butterfly flying above the rose. It represents love in transition. Guess I don’t have to worry about my tattoo going south cause I had it done when after the journey was already made to the south pole.

    The love in transition symbols was a good one for me because I got a divorce shortly afterward and fell in love with a red haute daddy.

    Guess I would say, do what will make yourself feel happy and have fun with the experience and if you’re 60, hurry and make up your mind.

    Love,
    Cinda a tattoo bearing grandma, with glitz.

      Cinda, LOVE that you decided to do something after everything went “to the south pole!” And you bring up a good point about getting one in a place that is only visible to you (and to someone you love). You are hands down my favorite “tattoo bearing grandma with glitz!”

    Hi Kirin,

    Although I have had permanent makeup applied twice to my eyebrows (I too have blonde-ish eyebrows), I just can’t bring myself to get an actual body tatoo. Almost all of my friends have a tatoo of some kind, but it’s just not “me”. I have considered it before, but only for a brief moment and then the idea was gone. When we travel to beach locations where thery offer temporary or henna tatoos, I indulge in the fun with my girls. But by the time it wears off (about a week later) I am happy to be rid of the marking that never really felt comfortable when I caught a glimpse of it in the mirror.

    What about you, Kirin? Any body tatoos for you?

    Take care and until next time,

    Beth

      Thanks for sharing Beth! The henna tattoos are a fun way to do it without it being permanent. Great idea!

      As for me, no body tattoos yet. My husband spend a lot of money and was in a lot of pain (and he’s a pretty tough guy!) going through the tattoo removal process. He described it as being burned by bacon grease, only the burning is done to your skin for a long time, and it’s 100 times more intense. He calls it his lesson: whenever he thinks he really wants to do something, he looks at the scarred remnants of his tattoo and wonders if he’s REALLY SURE about the decision he’s about to make.
