My first Tat??

For about the last month or so, I have been contemplating the idea of getting a memorial tattoo for Kherrington.
I've decided that if I were to get one, it would be on my ankle. It would likely be similar to this one. I think I like the idea of an anklet, with script writing and of course a lady bug. My BF over at My Life In Purple suggested having a lady bug walking up my foot to my ankle leaving behind foot prints (just like the ones Kheri has left on our hearts). I really like this idea. Of course, the writing would have to be a small and delicate font. I have been searching the Internet and I have found some, but nothing that I really like. Perhaps I will have to visit the local artist to see what they can draw up.
What do you think?? Any suggestions???


  1. I think it is a wonderful idea. It might sound really odd, but you might consider looking at wedding invitation website for fonts. Since I've been on about a million of them lately, I've seen tons of really cool script fonts on several of them.

  2. Love the idea. :) Take someone to hold your hand while you get it done (I'll go if I'm not working!).

  3. Mel and I can each hold a hand. You know I'm good to hold a hand...or a leg.

    You know that I would have taken K for her first tattoo...and you would have been SO MAD! Cool Auntie Iro can take mama for her first tat instead.

    urbandfonts.com is where most tattoo shops around here go for their templates. Go ahead, ask me how I know this ;)

  4. I think it's a really lovely idea. I like MLIP's idea too. I think that would be really neat. Tattoo artists are pretty talented, so I bet they can draw up something for you :)

  5. Thanks guys :) MLIP went with me tonight, as I went for a consult with the local artist.. I have one "on the drawing board" now. Hopefully I'll get to see it, and possibly get it done next week...

  6. Great idea! Now you've got me thinking... :) Can't wait to see pics if you decide to do it!
