Lunchtime Poll: Show Me Your Ink

12 years ago, I got my first tattoo. Six years ago, I got my second tattoo. This year, I got two tattoos. You know what that means, right? A six-year Fibonacci sequence. Sorry, mom, but in 2018 I’m due for three new ones, five new ones in 2024, and it’s just going to snowball after that.

I had wanted a new tattoo for awhile, but Pinterest really pushed me over the edge.

Pinterest has really changed my life. First, I am now sure that everybody else has really awesomely designed houses. Second, all I want to do is eat desserts with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in them. Third, tattoos.

Page after page after page of awesome tattoos, and I was sold. I used it to find font inspiration, as well as placement, and ended up getting two tattoos instead of one. I also opened it up at the tattoo artist’s place so that he could get an idea of all of the things that caught my eye. Of course, I posted pictures to Pinterest soon after, sure they would go viral. I’m still waiting for that, but don’t worry, I’m patient.

So. Show me your ink? I’ll show you mine.

Ad Astra Per Aspera means "To The Stars Through Difficulties." It is the Kansas state motto.
