So I did it. I got the tattoo. And yes, it did hurt. As much as having a little needle jab in and out of your skin super fast is going to hurt. I showed a handful of folks the tattoo today at church and that was what everyone wanted to know. It is a logical question for sure, but it’s funny to me when women who have given birth comment on the pain. It makes me want to ask them, “And sqeezing a water melon sized object out of a lemon sized hole doesn’t hurt?” Yeah…it’s different…but the pain level definitely doesn’t compare from the way it has been described to me. I can’t say from personal experience as I have not yet given birth but well…call it a hunch. Anyway, I am happy with my body art. Maybe now I won’t be as forgetful about who I am.
