So the more I'm looking at my foot piece, the more I'm thinking I want to cover it up. Melanie got a cupcake tattooed on her thumb and that reminded me of a really amazing sleeve that I saw. It was full of pastries and candy. Unfortunately I couldn't find it on Google. I did find a few that I really liked. Such as:
I like the "realism" of the first one. I like the colors in the third one, especially the pink. I like the variety of things in the third one like throwing in candy and such. I've always been intrigued by the concept of a candy or confection tattoo. It's something that makes me smile, it's whimsical, and it's okay if it doesn't look real.
When I see Mark tomorrow I'm probably going to see what he thinks. I may have to press him to get an opinion, but he was the one who originally suggested covering it up. At the time, it made sense to get it. Now I think I've moved beyond all that trauma and I want something happy and whimsical to make me smile. It's why I took my nipple piercings out. They were a rebellion and "sticking it" to Will (my ex for those who may not know) one last time. I eventually moved beyond it and just wanted to leave that part of my life behind. So, out came the piercings. I think it may be time to move beyond the time in my life when I got the foot piece. I don't need to remind myself that inner strength is needed daily. I know it is. I want something that will make me smile, remind me of the joy that is needed to get through the day, and possibly make me hungry.
