The Tattoo Saga Continues:The Story Behind the Ink

Tattoo

First off, let me say how thankful I am for all your kind words about my tattoos, and in general about moms with tattoos. I had quite a few people leave me comments, or even email me personally asking me what the "story" behind my tattoos were. Well I would be happy to share them with you! My tattoos: the Early Days.
