I went with my Mom and we both got a nautical star when I was 16, a birthday gift from her. I have to say, it was an awesome experience and even though now I think of my nautical star as silly, every time I look at it, I think of that experience and how my Mum has the same thing on her body.
I also have the start of a heart on my back as a tribute to my father. When I have the money, I will have it completed. It's important to me that even though he has passed, I can keep him with me via ink in my skin.
I only intend on getting tattoo's for or with the important people in my life. I would love to go get one with my brother, and get tattoo's in honor of my children, when I have children.
