Tattoos-day: Like Mother, Like Daughter September 29, 2009Posted by jeneypeney in bad-ass-ness, tattoos-day, the famn damily.
Note: I just now thought I should probably put a pain scale on these things…
Ink #5: Bonding with my Mama
Design: Blue shooting star with orange/yellow tail
Location: Right Foot
When: Summer before junior year of college
Pain Scale: Seven out of ten
Artist: Joey Drada
My mother and I got this one done by good ol’ Joey Drada at Prairie Tattoo. Mommy-daughter matching tattoos, yay!
This one is actually really simple to explain. As much as we butt heads and argue, my mom and I are really close. We tend to look to each other for direction in life; we think of the other as our own “North Star”. Hence the shooting stars.
We got the ink on our right feet so we could always help each other “put our best foot forward” even when the other isn’t there.
So whenever life gets tough, we look to our shooting starts to help us get through it.
That’s it — plain and simple. 🙂
