My second tattoo is still pretty new. I got this one in July (around the time of my birthday). I always loved this placement, just never had the courage to go through with it. I decided this year was the year, I just wasn't sure exactly what I'd get. I played around with fonts and quotes until one day it hit me. Ya'll are gonna laugh your a-s-s-es off, but I was watching Back Story with LeAnn Rhimes one day and they were discussing this song of hers I had never heard. (Stay with me here). I am not a LeAnn Rhimes fan by any means. No offense if anyone here is a husband-stealin' honey boo boo too, but she never was my cup of tea. This song, though, just changed my mind. It's called "What I cannot Change". Go download that shit. The first time I heard it, tears literally were falling down my face. I heard it at a time where I felt like I needed to hear the words she was singing. I don't feel that way often (except when I am a barrel full of hormones and fun). It drives home the same message as the Serenity Prayer, which I pray on a daily basis. This prayer has gotten me through some dark times, and I have it posted up about anywhere it'll stick-my office, my mirror, my planner, etc. That's when it hit me that this what about the only phrase that I could live with up there on my shoulder. The font was chosen simply because it was the only one that allowed all those words to fit. After several failed attempts at getting it with my husband and two friends (tattoo parlor closing early, artists being booked up, etc) I ended up going alone, on a Tuesday afternoon, and 15 minutes later I was done. I love the way it turned out and sometimes forget it's there. I figure that when I'm 67 years old, I won't be wearing off the shoulder tops anymore, and if I am, I think a tattoo will be the least of my problems.
