here's 101!!!

I'm still here... though I'm different today than I was yesterday. I got my 5th tattoo!!! That's right, just call me Mrs. Rebel! My 2 sisters and I went and got the symbol for infinity tatted on us (it's a figure eight). Here's a pic of mine...



My next tattoo is going to be a little more daring... I want a 1/4-sleeve so badly! Here's what I'm thinking about doing


I don't know how many of my readers are tattoo fans, but I personally am addicted to ink!


On a completely different note, my family got some sad news today. My brother is 17 years old, this is the summer before his senior year. Last summer his best friend was killed in an auto accident. He had gotten his car stuck and tried to get out and push it himself, the car rolled backwards and trapped him between his car and a tree. He suffered through the night and wasn't found until the next morning, he'd already passed away. Jake's death was really hard on my brother. Today one of his closest friends went in for a biopsy on a swollen lymph node, he was diagnosed with lymphoma. 17 years old. This is supposed to be one of the best years of their lives. Leaves me questioning how paths are chosen for people, the world doesn't seem fair.

Sorry to hear the sad news.

I have been planning on get a shamrock tat - it will be my first. It's going to be my "I finally graduated" memento. I've got my degree but can't seem to find a design I like.

I'm sorry for the sad news as well. I hope your brother is doing ok, it's never easy watching a friend go through that.

I've been contemplating tattoos forever now but can never come up with something I like. :)

I am so sorry about your brother. That is just awful.

(your tattoo is cool. I am way too wimpy to get one- pain and I are not fiends.)
