Tattoos and more.

While Jason and I were up north last week he suggested that we get a small tattoo before our big ones in October. I’ve wanted a tattoo for 3 years now with a special meaning behind the one I’ve chosen. The only problem is that it’s a foot tattoo and fairly large and I was terrified that I wouldn’t be able to handle the pain. Getting a small one was a great idea in my head because it helped me feel out what it would be like to have a needle digging into my skin.

Somehow he got me to get it just a week after we discussed it. I chickened out the first time and postponed it by a week. Then I figured I couldn’t cancel a second time. So Jason dragged me down to the tattoo place and I shook like a complete maniac for the entire car ride and walk to the place. We had to sit for 30 minutes while she prepped and I was sure I was going to pass out. When she called us in I was ready to walk right by her and out the front door. I decided to go first because I couldn’t sit there and watch first. She started on my wrist and I couldn’t believe how much it didn’t hurt. I was squeezing Jasons hand like crazy which helped a lot but it honestly was nothing like what I had imagined. All of it took 10 minutes and then it was my turn to watch Jason go. The final result? The girl on my wrist and the guy on Jasons:

A lot of people are going to judge for us getting tattoos that go together, especially since we’ve only been going out for 9 months. To those people I say…I really don’t give a shit what your opinion is. I imagine those people haven’t met the person they’re going to spend the rest of their lives with. I also imagine they don’t know what it feels like to be head over heels in love. When I met Jason I just knew and that’s as easily as I can explain it. I thank my lucky stars that I know he’ll be there for me for the rest of my life. That’s my little sappy post.

In other news I’m going to see The Help on Friday!! I just finished the book and loved it.
