Re: now tattoos/DH


I was raised with the same litany, Jesse, as Robert--and still feel the same way. But I also think a person's body is his or her own property, and whatever he or she want's to do with it ain't none of my business--up to the last endurable limit.

O.K. Andrea...e'splane what a "celtic moon" looks like. My husband is
Scottish/Irish/German. Ya know what? I liked my analagy so much from the
e-mail I sent ya'll that when my husband got home from a biz trip last
night I talked to him about it. He agreed...he doesn't like the fact
that the kids have tattoos at ALL...but does not love them less for it.
I asked him if I was in an accident and my face or body was
scared...would he love me less because of what I looked like on the
outside? He said no. He squinted his eyes and said..."I know what this
is about...you still want that tattoo.." I asked him what his crazy
hangup was (which I've heard before but I wanted him to say it out loud
so I could analize why he feels this way). His reason is that it USED to
be that only the "skanks, "carnival people, and bikers" got tattoos and
his parents harped about how only trashy people did that sort of thing.
I said..."THAT WAS THEN (and I don't believe those people are any less
human)

wake up and realize it is now 2005 where church ladies, professional
ladies/men, entertainers and the younger generation ALL do this. It is
not a crime, it does not make somebody a lesser person, it's "body art"
and personal expression. And yes, there are aweful tattoos out there,
but there are some that are beautiful. And some just have a personal
meaning for people." So...he gave me the "look". I just laughed and
walked off. Think that's what I'm going to do for my 44th birthday. OR -
maybe he and I can go do a tattoo together for our anniversary - ya
think???? LOL. I'm killing myself here. (so easily amused these days).

I got a great idea. Next time I come to Claremore, we can go get one
together. I like the feather idea. And he won't get TOO bent out of
shape if I'm there. LOL

What's he going to do Jesse? Kick you out? ;-)

My friend Liz got her tattoo as her 40th birthday present to herself, so go
for it! It's a Celtic moon. Very cool. I'm still thinking of getting mine,
so you're not alone.

I'm convinced Steve and Robert were separated at birth. Unbelievable.
Thank God I had the good sense to stay single. I'm far too
cantankerous and unyielding to be married. And I say - get your
tattoos, let them have a snit if they want to.

O.K. - like Forrest - this is all I have to say about this - and then
I'm done. Out of six children...we now have three with tattoos and a son
in law with tattoos. Do I love them any less. No. Does my husband love
them any less, no. He grumbles and expresses (loudly) how he disapproves
but loves them anyway. Last year when his/our 24 year old daughter got
married her wedding dress cut down really low in the back...and she had
most of her hair up. She has a wonderful dragon tattoo on her back. I
love it. He hates it. But he still doesn't think any less of her. So
then....why do I get such hell over it. Hmmmm....I'm a 43 year old
woman, thought about it over 9 years now...still have not changed my
mind or thought "glad I didn't do that"....so...my husband may just have
to get over it. "And that's all I have to say about that...." - Forrest

LOL! Robert sounds so much like Steve! When I was in college I wanted to
get a tattoo & get my nose pierced & he freaked. (I never ended up
getting a
tattoo or getting my nose pierced). I still want the tattoo though.

Ohhh, pfffffftttt, your friend's children went ballistic because their
parents got a tattoo before them. HA. I still want one. I have for the
past 9 years. I just want a small feather. That's it. My husband won't
hear of it. Makes me nuts.
