Weekly Photo Challenge: “MINE”

Memory…

My granddaughter has wanted a tatoo … forever!…

Dad and Mom said, “NO!… at least not until you’re 18″…

OK… That was the deal!…

So on vacation  a couple of years back my Taylor Kay and I, aka…”grandma” made a commitment that we would get one together when she turned this magical number  

Yes!… I’ve always wanted one too…

I love the Art  that goes into it…

I don’t want them all over my body… especially this body I have now… but, yes it’s one of my Bucket List items …and NO!… I don’t know what I want yet… I’ll probably design it myself…

Well, this summer  I get a phone call from my Granddaughter… She’s at the beach at Gulf Shores, Alabama… with Mom, Dad, little brother and sister and her other Grandparents  …

I immediately say, “You got a tatoo, didn’t you?”…

In awe!… she says, “How did you know?”…

“Because I know my girl!”, I said…

She was wondering if I was upset with her???… Of course not!… I have been young at one time… and if I had the opportunity to get something I wantedI would have jumped at it!

I was just glad she had remembered our little plan… and didn’t want me to be hurt

“How did you talk them into it?” , I asked…

She says, “I had saved the money  … Of course I had it on my mind… and we checked out the place and person that would be doing it… and six months wasn’t that far off… so why not!”…

I immediately asked, “What did you get?”… I was cringing thinking of my cute little Granddaughter being hurt with the needle that is used…

She says, “I’m texting you a picture as I speak” and…

 “It’s all “MINE!”…

(Little brother had to have one too… Of course his washed off…)

Of course it was!… Who else has one just like hers… in the same place… on the same little bodyNo one!…

Alis Volat Propriis

Latin for… “She flies with her own wings”…

So now in January  … when we both turn another year older…

Her, officially 18… and me actually old enough to know better…

I will have a tatoo that I can call, “MINE!”…

and if it’s in a place I can show … which I’m sure it will be… You will get to see “MINE” too…

  1. What a great line! Very empowering, sounds like your granddaughter has character! And most fun of all, you’re getting a tattoo too! Now that surprises me! I don’t know why, but it does. Our daughter has a small one she got when she was 17, and our son got one a couple of years ago. None for me, don’t like the needle! But good for you to do something you’ve had on your list! Looking forward to the photos when you get it! ~ Sheila
