iarebridezilla:  I get ridiculous comments all the time. “Are those real??” “Can I touch it” “But you’re too pretty to have tattoos” (what does that even mean??)

iarebridezilla:  i have one tattoo on my inner left wrist that most people don’t see because of my broad watch strap. most of the time my coworkers (i switch teams about every 2-4 years) don’t notice it until after working with me for a full year or more! lol so usually i get “OMG how long have you had that??”

my answer, for 7 years… it’s ok. most people don’t notice it. not really a dumb response. just funny when people realize i have a tattoo. i guess i don’t “look like” the type of person to have one. i really don’t know. they are always super shocked.

iarebridezilla:  Haha, yeah. I’m so fair skinned that most of mine don’t have black outlines. I think just having the bright colors confuses people!

iarebridezilla:  I don’t have any tattoos but I will say that at my bridal shower one of my good friends since high school was there and I don’t see her incredibly often. She was sitting so I could see her ankle tattoo… no problem, except I was lost in my own thoughts and blurted out ‘is that a radish on your ankle?!’ I was more surprised than anything but felt like a complete ass since the room had quieted down substantially. Turns out is was a radish but apparently heart shaped (which was not noticable from where I sat). I definitely mentally smacked myself about that. She seemed slightly embarassed. I blame the mimosas on an empty stomach. :/

“Wow! Was that designed by the gods?” 

that is what they WOULD say if I ever got the balls to get a tattoo

What i get is “OMG, YOU HAVE TATS? WHY?” like somehow i am a differnt person because i have ONE.

I have 3 words Faith, Hope, Love. I got them one at time after i learned a lesson in each of these. It means so much to me. And when people look down on it i get upset.

TaurianDoll:  LOL. Sorry for the “is that a…” question. I guess we just can’t help ourselves! At least I don’t usually mean it disparagingly – I’m genuinely curious!

springbride23:  it’s ok. most people are. 🙂 it’s kinda funny because i’m sure people like me are all thinking “ok, why would i get a (fill in the blank with random object) tattooed on me?” lol

iarebridezilla:  I was too embarassed to continue on that track of conversation but I really should have asked for the story/meaning behind it. It was probably pretty interesting – we had some crazy times before I decided to get all settled down and married.

iarebridezilla:  “Did it hurt” – I get that it’s a pretty standard question but it’s on my RIBS for gods sake…so yeah it hurt
