For a long time now I have been thinking about getting another tattoo. For someone that has never been a fan of tattoos this is something that has not been taken lightly after all I am a procrastinator!
As part of my healing process from loosing our little one I had an angel wing (identical to the one I wear around my neck) tattooed on my wrist along with the words little one. I still remember the pain of my tattoo as though it was yesterday (and it was March 2014!) as I am sure does Brad with the way I was squeezing his hand for dear life. The pain was well worth it. It's hard to describe the comfort that I get from looking at my wrist, sometimes numerous times through out the day.
It will be no surprise to you all to know that for my next tattoo I am looking at penguin designs. Although I don't want NF to rule my life, it is always going to be a part of it. I hope that the penguin tattoo, like my angel wing, will provide me with comfort and courage when times are tough. I know that my blog and my fundraising efforts are things that inspire me but this will be a permanent reminder of how far I have come.
So the next big desicion is what type of penguin? I can't seem to find a cartoon that I like. I did buy a lovely penguin painting from the finders keepers market that I went to...perhaps the tattooist can work some magic!
Being in fundraising mode for the big walk next week I've also had thoughts of putting a fundraising spin on it...tattoo for a cause!
