A Surprise

So we went downtown to get Rob's tattoo filled in, but they said his skin wasn't quite ready. (The tattoo was pretty big with lines close together.) So the tattoo artist said, "Well, I guess I have two hours free." To which I said, "Well, why don't you give me a tattoo instead?" HAHAHA! I just decided to get a tattoo! I had been thinking about it for awhile, but I hadn't taken the time to find a design. So I said to Rob I wanted a dove and he mentioned the Picasso dove (which is one of my favorite of his drawings). The tattoo artist showed me a dove that looked like the Picasso, but next to it was the one I got. I love it! If you don't, that's ok. Cuz I do and I'm the one who has to wear it! :)

Here's me getting the tattoo and NOT yelping in pain! (Even though I felt like it every once in awhile)

The finished design

Haven's reaction when she realized I got a tattoo!!!
