I was always one of those people who said I didn’t fancy a tattoo. Then one day in 2007, inspiration hit, and I found myself booking an appointment to get one done and I haven’t looked back since. My first tattoo is on the back of my neck and is just ‘carpe diem’ in black italics. It was over really quickly but it hurt SO much! I was digging my fingernails into my palm to stop me from turning around and telling the guy to stop. I’m really glad I carried on as I love my tattoo as I have always loved the phrase carpe diem.
I decided to get a second tattoo after I had met Michael. It’s our wedding date with our initials, stars and a heart on my wrist. I love it, but I often forget I have it and I’m left wondering why people are staring at my wrist as I wave my hands around when I’m speaking to them!
I really want a third tattoo, but I have no idea where or indeed what to get. I know that inspiration will hit me at the right time, but I’m just so impatient, I really want to know now!
