The Gallery…My Blog

The theme for Sticky Fingers Gallery this week is My Blog.

The image above is the photo I used for my Blog Header and is 2 Stars and a Swirl

I had the tattoo done in December 2009, my first and probably only one. I had done the usual I want a tattoo thing for years but never knew what I wanted. I randomly saw a similar image on Flickr one day and printed and drew and then went into a tattoo studio and asked could they do something that had 2 Stars and a Swirl.

So what does it mean?

A star each for Ben and I, and the swirls are the general chaos of our life together.

This blog is my 4th attempt at blogging, I started my first when Ben was a baby and the posts are all on here, a diary really of him growing up, that then went to a toddler diary and then I had a blog for me and my thoughts. But none of them really worked or were read.

In February this year I decided I wanted to do more writing and get involved with things like The Gallery and Silent Sunday so I signed up to a new Blog & Twitter account under this name and well 2 months later here I am and really enjoying it.

Time is my biggest enemy on expanding here, but that is the same for us all I think, but I hope to do more actual writing as time goes on.

So the big question…where is the tattoo?

    Cool tattoo. Where? Where is it?! I have older blogs floating around still. I think they have to grow and change the same as we do.

    The time thing is so true! It’s great to learn about you, your tatitoo and your bog history. Thanks!
    Is the tattoo on the back of your neck?

    Love the tattoo meaning and the fact that you actually went ahead and did it instead of just thinking about it over and over, like I do about tattoos!

      Well it took long enough to do it and it ended up being on a whim really, I drove there and went in, I don’t think I ever thought I would go through with it, but then had a man buzzing on my foot!

    On your foot?

    Love the idea behind you tattoo, and congrats on being fourth time lucky with the blog ;-)!

    …looks like it could be between your breasts but I don’t think you’d have that, so give up. Where is it?

    Beautiful tattoo and a beautiful post. Is it on your foot?

    I love the idea of your tattoo and a great name to use for your blog too. I have two tiny tattoos, a butterfly on my hip and a flower on my ankle, I got them done when I was a rebellious 15 and 16 year old and although I feel they are a part of who I am, I also wish I had waited and got something more meaningful done! x

    Oh time….! I feel like I’m chasing moments. Lovely post and really nice tattoo!
