Confession: I have a secret board on Pinterest for tattoos.

I have a secret board on Pinterest for tattoos. I do.

If you follow me on Pinterest, you will not see me pinning any tats, but I AM pinning them

I have been *thinking* about perhaps getting a small tattoo *here* or *there*.

I hear that if you get a tattoo, get it in a place a judge can’t see it.


Since I have good taste in all things (especially chocolate and coffee), I figure the tattoo ideas I am admiring are pretty tasteful as well. The ideas range from words that remind me to focus on things I need to be reminded to focus on: joy, shine, be lovely, create… to simple (and dainty) images of stars, hearts, birds, arrows.

But a friend on Facebook today posted a quote from Julia Child,

A party without a cake is just a meeting.

I bet no has THAT phrase tattoo’d anywhere!

OOOH!!!! I know… HOW ABOUT A CAKE TATTOO!!! Maybe something like this one?

Another idea I’ve been kicking around is the logo for the woman I have long put on a pedestal.

In fact, when I was a young girl, I wore her Underoos. I remember punching through and “flying” out the window of my playhouse (wearing my Underoos), pretending to come to the rescue of commonfolk everywhere… The woman?


wonder woman tattoo?

It’s not that I think I am so wonderful. Or powerful.

I don’t carry a golden lasso.


I use my Wonder Woman mug the most of all my mugs, especially when I am feeling the least Wonder Womanly.

I have a Wonder Woman bangle, because my husband is awesome and got it for me…


I’m thinking of taking it to the next level.

Or not.

Of all the things I have looked at tattoo-wise, this is the one that sticks. But I am also one of those mom-types with the philosophy that this thing will be ON you all your life, so… When I’m 80, will I regret a WW on my wrist (or where ever)?

It is entirely possible that when I’m 80 I will love me more, and have even more reason to be sporting a WW tat on my wrist.

Or I will look at it and tell me, “What kind of asinine…” And then forget what I was thinking and adjust my nose stud.

I will also wear my gray hair long. And it will drive me crazy to have my hair in my face. But I won’t cut it. Because even at 80, I will know that short hair isn’t my *thing*.

This almost sounds like I’ve made my decision. But I haven’t. Maybe I have and I just don’t know it yet. Rest assured, if I do it, there will be a Take It On Tuesday to catalog the adventure!

Here’s a question… do you have a tattoo? If so, what and where. If you do not, why and if applicable… would you?

Or this question… do you think I should do it?
