My husband had a tat done a while back by Vernie. I told him we'd take turns, and wanted my son's handprint, name, dob on it. I kept putting it off saying it was an indulgence, not a necessity. He texted one day about an ""event"" that most of the girls he worked w were going to @ Passionfish. After he explained what it was, I knew the time had come to pop the cherry. They were doing pink breast cancer ribbons or ""Jesus fish"" for $20 & all proceed went to Komen fund. My ribbon is the larger 2"" one, inside my left wrist, right above watchline. The decision was immediate, no hesitation because 1) I know several ppl who have her work on them, all good; 2) all proceeds go to Komen; 3) my mom is 22 yrs out from her breast cancer & my bff is 4 yrs out , both cases devestated me-couldn't stand the loss of either of the fantastic women; Finally 4) I would've spent at least that on t'shirts & other stuff & nobody would know how strongly I feel. The tat is out there, most of the time, even in winter, my sleeves are pushed up so all can see. My husband got a fish, so now it's back to my turn...gotta find that handprint! (I may just get another ribbon if she does it again next year-look for it: tatts & titts or pink ink!
