New Tattoo?

So what do you think? I’ve looked through LOADS of photos of filigree and I’ve finally come to love this one. I’m getting a tattoo with my birthday moolah. I want this on my right shoulder blade. The top curl will land on the top of my shoulder. I think it’s beautiful. I’ll just get them to change the ends of those big curls to something a little different. It looks a little to fleur de lis or however you spell it. Too french anyhow. Yes I know filligree is french for the most part…leave me alone.

So yay? Nay?? I love it. It’ll be all black too. I’m just a black tattoo kinda gal.

So I think I’m going to bite the bullet and pay the $15/ year and make this place www.theinformalmatriarch.com. I’ll let you all know when it fully happens. I’m pretty sure that if you put the old url in there it’ll go here too though. I have to read into it all.

Anyway, I have another counseling appointment tonight. I hardly did any of my homework. I’ve been too busy with inlaws and birthday things to even think about my homework. Perhaps I’ll so some today. I’m feeling so positive about the work we’re going to do.

I had the most wonderful time at the spa last night.  OH MY OH MY OH MY GOODNESS.  I haven’t been that relaxed in ages.  I wish I could have bottled up that feeling and kept it for much longer than it lasted.  For those of you who don’t know, I had the ultimate vichy experience.  I got there and I had a lot of time before my treatment so I sat in the steam room for a while.  Then I cooled off in a shower and then had a bit of a snack and read a magazine while in my robe and slippers.  When I got in there she got me to go up on the bed under a towel.  Then she did a dry exfoliation on my body and then slathered delicious Moore Mud all over me.  Then she wrapped me up in plastic and gave me a wonderful facial followed by a head and neck massage.  The Moore Mud was tingly and it felt really nice.  Then the shower was turned on and she rinsed me all of and gave me a full body massage while I was still on the shower.  You need to goggle vichy shower if you don’t know what I’m talking about.  I was laying down the whole time.  I thought it was over at one point but she just needed to flip me over.  That’s the best feeling in the world.  Thinking it’s over but then realizing there’s still a lonnnng way to go!  Wooot.  Anyway, it was amazing.  I LOVE being in any shower so having 6 shower heads on me while being massaged laying down is definitely my idea of a great time.  It was rather inexpensive for what you get.  It came to $131 but then you need to add tip on there too.  I wish I could get one of those a month.  I’m all soft and smooth now.  Goodness me.  I can see how people would get addicted very quickly.  It was above and beyond my expectations.

Anyway, let me know what you think about the tattoo. Grandmas and Grandpas related to me need not send me their cringes…ha ha ha.

  1. LOVE the tattoo. I’m not a tattoo person myself, but it’s very snazzy!

    Jealous!!! 🙂 Pampering sounds very lovely right about now.

    Funny – I just checked into the $15/year idea too 🙂 Great minds think alike!

  2. Beeee-utiful! Good idea to get black rather than color like some other silly girl I know who didn’t know better cuz she was only 16!

  3. Since you admit we are cringing, I’ll add my two cents worth so you will hear it first hand. WHAT A WASTE….. Isn’t spending money on a tattoo about the same as the people you were criticizing awhile ago that were wasteful spenders?

    P.S. I still love you.

  4. It’s very pretty, but probably not a tattoo I would get. I guess I’m a personal tattoo kind of girl 🙂 I’m getting a big-ish piece this summer, an apple tree branch with apples & blossoms. I can’t wait, I’ll have to post a picture when it’s done! 🙂

    Lucky you, about the massage. That sounds like heaven! I’m so jealous!

  5. It is a very pretty design. I like the dots. Will the orientation be the same? Think about rotating it about 20 degrees counter-clockwise … just an idea.

  6. Jen-Ya don’t talk to me in degrees there sugar. No idea.

    Kait- I always thought I was a more personal tattoo girl too but I saw something like this on a woman before and had to have one. I think it’s soooo pretty.

  7. It’s a very pretty tattoo, I like it a lot! I’m planning on getting another tattoo in the next few months of my second daughter’s name. I already have my first daughter so it would be totally unfair to only do the one! I can’t wait to see a picture of the final product. Don’t forget to post a picture of it when it’s done. ; D

  8. If you wanted to be not-so-original, you could get the reverse on your other shoulder – it would look like cool wings! 🙂

  9. And from the conservative sister-in-law of the sister, DON’T DO IT! There. I just had to get that out. I have so many friends with tattoos that wish they didn’t get them….. yes, they are all over 40 now…. and got them when they were in their 20s.

    There’s my opinion. And if ya want my mom’s famous advice, “You’re old enough to make your own dumb decisions.” :o)

    I feel so old. ~ Linda
