We were driving in the car today and talking about tattoos. Yep, tattoos! That may seem weird in your family, but with my husband having three and me planning my next one as we speak, it's not so weird.
Louisa was excitedly telling me all about what her tattoo is going to look like. She had quite the disappointed little face when I told her she has to be 18 to get one. But that's ok, I told her, maybe by then they will have found a way to get glitter to actually stick in a tattoo!
Anyway, Louisa was wondering about the pain, and did a tattoo really hurt as much as they made it seem on television. I thought HUH??? They always make it look easy on TV. Even on those reality tattoo shop shows, like Inked, they make it look painless. So I told her in all honesty, yes, it hurts like hell! However, I said, it hurts less than having a baby. Well, okay, she thought she could deal with that.
Then, from the backseat, Drew chimes in with a very serious tone, "Louisa don't ever get married."
"Why?" we asked.
"Because you're my sister and I love you! I don't ever want you to get hurt and babies just hurt you. If you get married, then you have to have a baby and get hurt!" he replied.
Sounded like good reasoning to me! Louisa, on the other hand, laughed her little hind end off!
So now we know, getting a tattoo hurts less than having a baby, and if we never get married, we can just avoid that whole baby hurting us thing and live happily ever after with our tattoos.
