Before you start gagging, it’s not BF and I who are getting matching tattoos (I would never do something like that. EVER). :)
You’re not going to believe it. My mom wants to get a tattoo. Not just any tattoo. But matching tattoos with my sister and I. My first reaction was that my mom had officially lost it. She was in some crazy midlife crisis, because when I got my first tattoo when I was 18, she flipped out!
She wants us to get our last name (in Chinese characters) tattooed wherever we want (I want mine on the side of my ribcage – ouch!), since our last name will not be carried on once my sister and I get married and take on our future husbands last names. I don’t know about my sister, but I won’t be considering hyphenating my last name with BF’s when we eventually get married.
I personally think this is a fabulous idea. Our thought is that we’ll do it around Christmas time and I think will cost me about $100-150.
