A couple of months ago, I asked if I could tattoo the words “love” on my chest.
My answer: yes.
“When I was 16,” she says, “I didn’t know if it was going to last, and I was trying to figure it out.
But it’s been like, ‘I don’t want to end it right now.'”
I know my heart and mind will be forever changed, and for the first time in my life, I’m proud of my commitment to my love.
But what I really want to do with this piece is show that tattoos can be empowering.
I’m not asking people to do their own tattoos, nor am I saying they can’t, but if they want to, there’s no harm in letting their love guide them through the process.
The next tattoo, I was told, would be a heart.
And yes, I did the math.
When I first got a tattoo, it was not a permanent tattoo, but a piece of paper that I signed, and then had a plastic surgeon remove.
I was then told that my heart would be on the outside of the piece of parchment, but I could put my name and number on the inside.
When the heart was done, I received a thank you note that said, “Thank you for your love and support.
You are now the mother of my baby.”
But the heart, the letter said, was not meant to be.
It was meant to become a part of my body.
This is a common story, but the reason why it is so meaningful is that it’s not about being a baby, it’s about being loved.
I wanted to have a heart tattoo, because the word “heart” is an essential part of our relationship.
I’ve been told many times that my tattoo is my “baby,” and I am.
It means that my life is my life.
And it’s a part that I will never get rid of.
Now that I have a permanent heart, I have the opportunity to be the mother that I want to be to my baby.
