Friday Foto Finish 9.19 - Showing some skin

Earlier this month  I wrote a post about my diverse family, one of which I proudly wear his artwork on my body.  I currently have 3 tattoos, and he is on commission to create one more.  A blossoming lotus I plan to put just below the base of my neck.  It will be painful and (maybe) my last.  I love the artwork, and I wear it with pride.

Thanks for visiting.  If you want to play along, stop by Candid Carries Fx4 and join in the phun!

Left Ankle, Hibiscus Flowers (age 29)
Right shoulder, moon with breeze and stars (this one was my first, age 25, and my own design)
Sun, spine, about a third of the way up my back. (age 27)
I missed the ones for my 31st and 33rd birthdays.  Oh yeah, these were all birthday gifts for myself.  I bought the first two, my hubby got me the third.  When I go get the next one, he is going in for his second.  

By the way, do you know how much street cred. I get with my students for having a visible tattoo?  Waaaaay too much!  I rock the black nail polish too sometimes.  I'm cool like that.

Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to your posts!
