This is one of my all time favorite memories and pictures of Ada and me. I really wish I could've brought Dax along with me for this tattoo, too- but a tattoo parlor at 11pm on a Saturday night just isn't the place for a 2 month old!
We went with the Schilhabs for Katy's 30th birthday, because we were both wanting wrist tattoos! Here's Katy and I at Shaw's posing in the same spot Ada and I stood 2 years ago:
A little nervous! My moral support from behind the tattoo area:
Getting tatted! Loved this guy- Joel.
Then it was Katy's turn... and she chickened out! ;) It's OK, though... it's a good excuse to go on another double date again soon! Plus she ended up tweaking her design a little after we left.And here it is, in all it's glory! I designed it (I designed the ladybug, too), and am so proud of it and in love with it. The shamrock on the "x" symbolizes a couple of things. #1) Christian (Dax's middle namesake) has a 3 leaf shamrock tattoo, and several of the Mobley boys have also gotten shamrocks since. #2) Dax was born the day before St. Patrick's Day! #3) Both of my kids now have badges that symbolize good luck. :)
Yes, I know it's off centered. That was intentional- I have an affinity for assymetry. :)
