My Belated 35th Birthday Present

I finally did it. I got my tattoo. I've always thought it would be cool to get one but never knew what to get. Todd and I decided for our 35th birthdays last year that we would each get one. Todd got his last July. Here's the picture of his. I should have gotten mine in December but for various reasons, time got away. So I finally got it done yesterday! I wanted a four leaf clover for various reasons....good luck, being part Irish, and green being my favorite color. My favorite part though is having Todd,Drew,Noah,& Aiden's initials on there. THEY are my good luck and the best gifts in my life and I smile everytime I look down at my "little work of art". I know my mom is probably cringing right now. Sorry mom. Remember when you got upset that Nate got his ear pierced when he started college?? I said it wasn't a big deal, you could always take it out and it would go back to normal. I said it wasn't like he got a tattoo or something. Wait...... that isn't helping my case at all! :) I love it and I'm happy as a clam so that's all that matters. This guy is so funny. You should see some of the signs in his shop. This was the card I got that explained how to take care of my tattoo. Make sure you read #7 and #9. When Todd got his done, he asked why those two were on there. He said he does it to fuck with the college students. (the shop is located right across the street from the university). I think that is hysterical.

It looks great! Yeah you!
I hear the top of the foot is a very painful place to get one. What did you think? Pretty painful?
I really want to get another one. Or two. My bro is a great tattoo artist so I get the family discount. ;)
I'll have to show my bro those instructions. That is a hoot.

That's very cool. I have 3 and love them (I think they're addicting. Just wait.) I also want to do something for my family.

OUCH! You are much braver than I am! It looks good though. I love all thier initials and since I'm Irish too - of course I love the green clover.
Very cool.
