Paula was right, opposites attract!

You know how they say that opposites attract? Well this is very true about me and one of my BFF's. She will remain nameless for this post but I am sure most of you will know who this is.

See she is neat and tidy and I am messy.
She is Kenny g and I am Green Day
She is Ann Taylor Loft and I am Urban Outfitter
I WAS the tattooed and pierced one until recently......

To celebrate her 35th birthday she wanted to cross something off her bucket list and get a tattoo. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would spend a Saturday afternoon with my BFF at a tattoo place with her on the table. Never. NEVER. But I did.

I loved the image she chose. She took a celtic symbol of motherhood and made it our of cherry blossom branches. 3 cherry blossoms and a bright blue ladybug. When my BFF found out she was pregnant she kept seeing blue ladybugs around. Of course she had a beautiful baby boy 9 months later.


Once the stencil was on the fun began. I thought for sure she would at the least cry. But she was such a trooper. She really sat for the tattoo like a pro.



Yes thats a Homer Simpson tattoo and a Mr Rogers tattoo!


The place she had the tattoo done at was really cool. A tattoo and art gallery called West End. A really cute loft like building. Her artist Lyndsey was super relaxed and very quick and super talented. The tattoo took not quite 2 hours and the finish product was amazing!




I still can't believe she did it. But I am so glad that I was able to be by her side when she did.

  1. My exact message to her was "wtf??? you got a tattoo?" now she's trying to convince me that I need one! Too bad I'm still too afraid of my dad! Ang
