For years I’ve preached that not having a tattoo is the new tattoo. And now I want one. I chalk it up to the fact that despite the revolving baby door and all of the excitement (currently thinking of a new word…) that comes with, life has pretty much been the same for five years.
Well-before getting married, it was all: next grade, new school, new classes, next trip, new job, next next next. And, I loved the change. It’s why I am always creating something new. Always taking on a new project. Never satisfied.
I’d say there is some merit to that. There are also some pitfalls (overcommit much?) And it makes a b s o l u t e l y no sense that I would consider something so permanent. But, I mean, I got married and had kids, right? I’m clearly capable of big-time big-girl stuff.

- Mike is campaigning for me to go with a half sleeve
- actually, there’s a good chance I will chicken out
And while I won’t be branding myself with all of these, here are 5 of my favorite tattoo design ideas:

Tell me now: do you have one? What is it? Why did you get it? Are you afraid of the commitment like el mio?
