Had to see the Princess the other day to sign some stuff. She saw my latest tattoos and said, "Oh my god! What's wrong with you?"
I admitted that it may be a mid-life crisis, then added, "It's one of the kind that DOESN'T split up families though."
Luckily, we were done conducting our business: She felt a need to suddenly leave.
(How many of my posts end with "Fuck her"? I think there have been a few.)
ETA Maybe that should be my next tattoo? Nice fancy script that says "Fuck her!" I hate to feel like I'm repeating myself.

The best thing about hitting rock bottom is that everything after that looks fucking fabulous!
Even if your reasons started out negative, I hope you will find ways to view them positively. No reason for body art to ring in fresh pain and serve as a trigger.
Just a thought...I could be way off the mark

I have no tats but I would love one - I just can't ever decide what!

None of these tats have anything to do with her. Well, maybe the one of the first two bars of sheet music for Man of Constant Sorrow (that I got shortly after DDay) had something to do with her.
But the rest have been things I wanted to get, and didn't have to worry about her opinion anymore. So it could be a little bit MLC, but mostly it's just a look that I really like.
I love all of them, and don't think of her when I look at any of them (even Man of Constant Sorrow).
So for the next one, I was thinking of a Lone Ranger mask on my face. What do y'all think?
Mine is connecting the four I have into a large overall piece that will pretty much shock most folks, but no one will really see it. The end result will be similar to this.
Go big or go home, right?!

It beats the hell out of getting a sports car and knocking up a 20 year old.
I wish they would bring back the red A on the forehead for our former spouses.
You can always use tesla's FTG.....
Tattoos originated as a rite of passage and are very personal. As long as one is over 18, no one else gets any say in it.

What business is it of hers what you do to your body?
EXACTLY! She doesn't get an opinion on anything anymore that doesn't relate to the kids' well-being.
In Ontario, we're allowed to file for divorce one year after we separated. We officially separated on March 2, at about 4pm (but who's counting). I can't even wait until the divorce is final. I know it's more of a symbolic thing than anything - since we're already living apart - but that symbol is looking pretty fucking great at this point.
I think one with her face and the crossbones instead of a skull would be cool!, but since you're opting for the highroad, can't do that where the sun will shine.
She sounds like Arsehole quite often, actually. Why do they even notice what we do?
And good for you on the F'her. I thing it shows move-along-ability.
Mandalas are great, they're fun and filled with so much meaning. DD and I found one online we used to lighten a mood one day and it was ice cream based.

Perserverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages.
She saw my latest tattoos and said, "Oh my god! What's wrong with you?"
But honey? Don't reply to her next time. She doesn't deserve an answer for her judgmental, prying, overstepping bullshit questions.
"The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it." - Brene Brown
1. During our entire relationship, she desperately needed to be told to "Fuck off" on a regular basis, and I NEVER did.
2. I'm a natural born smartass.
So I'm not afraid to say things back to her now, AND I have a head full of things to say. You can see my dilemma?
How about if I just say nothing and flip her the bird?
Oh all right! I'll keep working on those crickets.
Yeah, screwing some subhuman outside of marriage is a much better way to handle a mid-life crisis. I'm glad you made that comment to her; she was being completely hypocritical. It's a little late to be playing the Victorian prig, honey!
Yep, I got one after each of his affairs. Love them.
Gasp, I would run out of skin
I get a tattoo to celebrate a new life/significant milestone, marking my body helps me to feel it is different and mine. A fresh new me to be reclaimed!
Its not a MLC pass, its an independence statement.
