Mommy's New Tattoo

Today I went with my best friend Maria to St. Sabrina's in Uptown to get our new tattoos! 

We've been talking about it for years but finally got around to it now that we're both married and we were each other's maids of honor.  It is a custom piece that we came up with that's a combination of the Roman numeral 12 and the Latin word illis.  The numeral is for the age we were when we first met and the month of both of our birthdays, the color is our December birthstone color and the "illis" that starts and ends the tattoo (the II of the XII and the double L become one) is the feminine, plural form of what means "by these"- as in "a life is enriched by these friendships."

Here are some photos.

Me first!

My final product!

Maria's final; tiny bit different because she got the double lines on her IIs
Up next: Jason & I are getting song lyrics together... whenever we can find the money.
