Tatted Up!

Okay, I promise that this will be my last time posting twice in one day.
At least for a little while. I just can't wait to do all of these tags & awards so I like to do them as they come!

I have been getting a few emails asking about my tattoo, SO I wanted to share it with you guys the best I could :)


It took me a few years to get it to where it is now (tattoos are NOT cheap, let me tell you), but I absolutely adore it and have zero regret :) In case you can't tell from the pictures, it starts on my upper right thigh and wraps up to my back. It's five shots of a single butterfly in flight. The verse that is in script near the top butterfly is 2 Corinthians 5:17, which reads [ESV], "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." 

When I was 18, I was at a youth camp and that was the first time that I heard God speak to me. Not in a creepy way, but in an intimate, I am His & He is mine kind of way. It's nice to always have this tattoo as a reminder :) I really hope that these pictures aren't too risqué for any of you ;) sorry if they are! And if you have any questions about my tattoo, feel free to comment or email!


There's a couple more pictures that aren't as nice so you can get the gist of the placement. It's hard to tell in the first pictures.


ALSO-
