I got inked, again!

Yup, you’ve read it right! AGAIN! My first tattoo, a butterfly, was done 3 years ago. It was my husband who actually pushed me to get it done. The tattoo artist had a hard time finishing mine as I would always ask for a break.

The other day, my brother called me telling me their plan of getting inked. Their” referring to my paternal cousins. As agreed, a letter C which stands for Cortez and a crown. The girls will have a red colored crown while the boys will have a blue one. The letter C that they have chosen has a tribal design inside it. Right! That adds another pain. Later on it was decided to include our first or nick names under the letter. Since I already have one on my right leg, I didn’t mind having another one for as long as it is put on my back. Surprisingly, it was done smoothly, continuously,  and didn’t even bleed.


The best part was we were able to convince my dad to have it, too. So far, here’s what we got. The rest of the cousins who are at the right age got theirs done too. Too bad I don’t have their photos taken yet.

  1. Woot! Kudos to you for having the guts to get inked.. 😛 I always say I want a tattoo, but I can never go through with it because I’m afraid it will hurt.. 😛


  2. wow, you’re one brave soul. i’m so afraid of needles during blood transfusion or anesthesia shots during delivery period… but you got one big needle prick you.Oh!

    I’m not really thinking of getting one, but the “C” standing for Cortez, makes me think, I’ve got the same maiden name too:)

    Go for the girl power!


  3. Hi Ane! It was my 2nd one na pero nerbyos pa din ako while getting done. Tiis lang sa sakit, sabi nga ng pinsan ko “Kung gusto lumandi, magtiis sa hapdi” hahaha!
