Well people, I have decided to embrace turning the big 4-0 with all that I can "muster." I call it "My Year of Turning 40." I am going to do things I have never done before, go outside my comfort zone, and basically HAVE FUN! My theme is: She believed she could, so she did. I first found it on Pinterest.
So I decided to get a tattoo with these inspiring words. My first tattoo was exactly 20 years ago. Wasn't it about time for another one? A little research and I found Katrina at Evolved on the OSU campus. After a consult and a scheduled appointment I arrived for the big day.
First I had to sign my life away and give ok for the design. She told me to make sure everything was spelled right. Who is she talking to? I cant spell worth a lick, but I signed away!
This is me, a kick-ass beotch ready for my tat! (You can see my other little tattoo on my ankle. My holly leaf.)
This is me scared shitless after she got out the needle. Notice the nervous look on my face and the fist clenched. (sorry for the profanity but hey I just got a tattoo damn it and Im turning 40!!!) 
It hurt like hell, it felt like she was carving into my skin with a knife so sharp my flesh was falling off in nice thin layers, like the crazy guy from Silence of the Lambs was using my skin for a nice jacket. But it was so worth it, I love it!
Katrina did a great job and I would reccommend her to anyone. I love a kick-ass kind of girl!
So, I have a lot of things planned for 2012. Hopefully no flare-ups of my Crohns disease, and one of my goals is to eat at every restaurant listed on the Dispatch's Top Ten Restaurants in Columbus. I'll keep you posted!
