#12 - Inked up!

So I just thought I'd do a quick blog post today. I did mention in my previous one that I was taking another trip to the charity shop after work on Saturday and I did! I picked up some goodies too, but I'll blog about them tomorrow. I'd been trying to decide on whether or not I wanted a tattoo for ages and on Thursday the 9th I decided to get one of two tattoo's I'd wanted for years.

This one is in memory of my Dad as you can probably tell ♥
The symbol represents infinity, so the message behind his name incorporated into the symbol means that he will always be with me in my heart, and that I'll never ever forget him. I got this on the side of my forearm towards the wrist.

A week after I got my first one, I got the second one I'd always wanted ever since my Dad passed away, because my Mum had always been my rock, and this one I got on my right shoulder. It's French for "I owe my Mum the world".

It's safe to say that it didn't actually hurt me at all, either of them. But I'm really proud to have got both of them done as I honestly thought I'd end up chickening out and running away with half a tattoo because I'd be too scared to let him carry on, but I was a brave gal! Anyway, that concludes my blog post for today, I'll be back tomorrow with more vintage buys and goodies for you all.


  1. this is such a sweet post and i'm really sorry to hear about the loss of your dad, i've been thinking of getting one in honour of my Grandma and Nanna (both played massive roles in bringing me up) but never had the guts to have it done. So it seriously didn't hurt? :) xx

    1. Thank you Josephine! I've said to a few of my friends since I got my tattoo's that if you're getting a couple that are in memory of somebody you've lost, then you definitely should, if you're not good with pain, think about the reason you're getting it, instead of how much it will hurt. For me, I'm AWFUL with pain, I hate needles and anything related to them and this was such a light pain for both of them I was really quite shocked. If you ever get your back tickled when you're trying to get to sleep, and then after a while it gets a bit irritating, that's how it felt for me :) p.s thank you for both of your lovely comments ♥
