The Tattoo Verdict

So, if you recall, before I went away on my little escape to paradise, I left you all with a quandry: To tattoo or not to tattoo?

Still a bit high off my meeting with the one and only Donnie Wahlberg, the celebrity crush of my teen years, I was debating whether I would permanently mark my wrist with a memory of his autograph there etched. It looked like this:


I even had a poll on my sidebar, and asked for your opinions. I'll have you know that several of you told me I should just go for it. Some of you told me to be a bit more conservative and just get the star. And others told me I was nuts, don't do it.

I considered all your opinions, and made my own decision based on two things. 1. The pain factor, as I was told the wrist is one of the most painful places to get tattooed and 2. timing. As I was leaving for Florida the next day, and would be at the beach for most of that week, timing was of the essence in this decision making process.

However, as fate would have it, on my walk to the beach, from my friend's apartment, I walked by not one, but TWO tattoo shops.

So...ladies and gentleman, I present to you, my wrist:



No...I didn't do it. I very honestly considered doing the star, but then...well, the beach was calling my name.
I might still get it done one of these days, the star, I mean. I have a photo, I know where it should go.

But for now, I remain ink free, there at least.

I still have this one on my back.


That'll do for now.

Okay, I missed the whole debate, but I gotta say I'm glad you opted for the beach instead. A tattoo in that place is not something to be done on a whim. It's something you should carefully think about for a while. Your back can be covered up, but your wrist, forever tattood by a fad band of the early 90s... I'm thinking that could easily turn into a regret later in life.

Next time - get ballsier - have him autograph your butt, THEN get the tattoo there! :-0

BTW - pretty watch! :)

Frigga, hey girl! Man, I've missed ya! I'm such a slacker with my blog reading lately, I have to stop by and see what you've been up to. Yeah, I think I made the right choice by NOT getting the tat, this time. And thanks, the watch? Got it at Wal Mart for like $7. ;-)

You were smart not to get the tattoo. What if Wahlberg did something unthinkable that made you not like him anymore? Then, you'd have to strike through the tattoo & put your new favorite crush. Before long, your wrist would look like the cement walls under the railroad bridge with all the graffiti. However, I liked Frigga's idea of getting it tattooed on your butt. LOL.
