It Finally Felt Right.....

Look what I got up to this week!

After many years of going back and forth, I finally went out and got the tattoo that I've wanted to represent my family.  It took a long time for me to settle on what....and where....I wanted this tattoo.  I always knew that when the right idea hit, I would commit asap.  And that's exactly what happened.

When I went into the tattoo "shop", all I knew was that I wanted 3 butterflies showing some type of movement.  The artist and I worked together to come up with what you see.  Here's the story behind it...

It all starts with the lily, which was the main flower in our wedding and represents Jason & myself.  The 3 butterflies are the kids and are done in their birthstone colours.  So the blue butterfly represents Braeden, who was born sleeping on Dec 2, 1996.  The green butterfly is Sarah, born in May and the red butterfly is for Noah, born in January.

Did it hurt?  Some areas were definitely tender, but as a whole, not too bad!  It took the better part of 3 hours, but the time went by super quick!  And I am thrilled with the end result!

Crazy town, yes???  LOL

Do you like tattoo's?

Bye for now!!


  1. You go girl! I love it!!! I have no tattoos or piercings.

  2. THAT IS AMAZING!!!! I seriously need to get up the nerve to get my two tattoos...gah! It looks gorgeous and I love the symbolism behind everything!

  3. Very pretty! It's wonderful to have something so symbolic of family, isn't it? :)

  4. Beautiful! Both the tattoo and the meaning behind it :-)

  5. Krista, it's just beautiful!! That's the best part of the tattoos... hearing what's behind it! :)

  6. So beautiful! I love tattoos, mostly because I love the stories behind them. And the artwork that they can create on skin is amazing. I have two, but would like more - I'd really like to get a large piece like that, maybe on my back, one day. Love!

  7. I'm so jealous! I haven't worked up the nerve to get one yet. Yours is very pretty and so meaningful...nice!

  8. Woooo! Look at you, brave women! It's soooo beautiful and feminine. Did it hurt a lot? I bet so. Three kids? Am I missing something? Who's Braeden?


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
