New Ink

I am in need of some new ink.  I waited until I was almost 30 to get my very first tattoo.  It wasn't that I was against them, I just couldn't figure out what I wanted to put on my body for the rest of my life.  One night while hanging with my sister,(and probably a few shots of southern comfort) we were discussing this and both agreed that we didn't just want any type of tattoo that any random person could have.  In unison we both said "unless it was you!".  So we birthed the idea of having all four sisters get our very first tattoos together.  We even picked out Chinese lettering that says sisters and all of us have our own color scheme.

Flash forward a few years and I decided to quit smoking.   I didn't tell anyone, not even my husband, in fear that I would be doing it for someone other than myself. After a few months of being smoke free, my husband made me a deal that if I stopped smoking for one full year he would buy my next tattoo.  So this was perfect!  I would have a constant reminder not to ever go back to smoking.  I knew that I wanted one on my ankle and that I wanted it to incorporate my two boys.  So I came up with this design which is actually a pendant that I have.
The Libra sign is on top for my oldest son's birthday and the Aries sign is on the bottom for my younger son.

Fast forward a few more months and my best friend and I were discussing that we really want another tattoo, but again the dilemma of what to get.  She is an only child, and we have been like sisters for twenty years so it was only natural that we pick something that represents both of us.  We ended up with the constellation of Virgo (which we both are) and put them on our neck. ( I can't seem to find a picture of them electronically)

So now, I am itching.. again. I knew that once i had more children I would want to put something regarding them in a tattoo as well.  I call them my Yin and Yang, so my bff hooked me up with this idea and I really love it!

Now I just have to figure out where I want it!!
