tattoos {to honor my grandmother}

17 Apr
When my grandmother passed away in February, I knew immediately that I wanted to do something in her honor, and I was pretty sure I wanted that thing to be a tattoo. I thought and thought about ideas, trying to come up with something really special. But nothing seemed special enough.
At some point, I came up with a great idea. I don’t even know where the idea came from but I’m so glad it came to me. The idea was to get the words “love you” in her handwriting. I found a card from her that had those words in it and I knew it was perfect.

I told my mom about the idea and she loved it and wanted to do the same thing. So of course we decided to go together. I couldn’t wait. I was so excited. We finally went on Sunday and it was amazing. We went to Congress St. Tattoo in Portsmouth, NH. The tattoo artist, Beth, was so friendly and awesome. I’m going to suggest that any other family members that want the tattoo should go to her.

I have 2 other tattoos and this one definitely hurt the most out of all 3 but it really wasn’t too bad. I had to breath deep a couple times but it only took about 10 minutes so it was fine.
I absolutely love the tattoo. It is soo perfect. And I’m so glad I went with my mom and we got to share the experience together.

I miss my grandmother soo much and I still can’t believe she is gone but I know this is the perfect tribute to her and I get to see it all the time.

Plus, a bonus, I was also glad to be able to cross something off of my 30 by 30. Yay!
