Eleanor Roosevelt said that you should do one thing every day that scares you and I have been trying to do this since becoming single…
This weekend was no exception and I decided that I would get my first tattoo. It is tiny and it is on my ribs next to my boob so will only really be seen on holidays but why did I do it?
I have always thought of getting a tattoo but I knew my parents didn’t like them. My ex boyfriend had so many tattoos and although I loved them, I didn’t want people to think that I was only getting one because he had them or that he pushed me into it. As you will know we have been apart now a whole month and because I have been going through such a hard time I decided that I would just do it.
I managed to persuade my Mum to come with me, which I was grateful for and she actually almost physically pushed me through the door when I nearly backed out. The tattoo place was pretty busy but one of the guys managed to fit me in before his first appointment. He explained what he was going to do and checked that I was happy with the design and the placing and then he just did it. He also explained how long it would take and that he did the outline thicker than the design as it can be caught on bras etc. He told me to take my bra off which was a little bit strange as I then the whole day out without a bra, but it was liberating.
I was so worried that it would hurt… that has been my biggest fear of them for so long. I also heard that the ribs would be painful and my ribs do stick out a lot. However, I didn’t really feel a thing. This may have been because it was so small and quick but I was surprised at how little it did hurt.
I feel sorry for my friends that have received photos of my boobs over the weekend but I think that it is so cute and I cannot wait to see it when I am in a bikini on holiday.

ps. I am aware that the picture isn’t great but I didn’t want to reveal too much. I will get someone to take a better photo for me in the next couple of weeks.
