Seven

This past Wednesday, I got my 7th tattoo. 

To see my other tats, go HERE.

I've been wanting to get a wrist tattoo for the longest time but never did for numerous reasons.

My little sister and I were talking and she wanted one too, but neither of us just wanted to jump in and get a "cute" tattoo. We wanted something that meant something to the both of us.

After a lot of talking and researching we decided to get "Sorellona" and "Sorellina" which mean "big sister" and "little sister" in Italian.

We're Italian from our Mom's side. Her dad's family came over from Italy. It's always been something that I've been very proud of, and it was something I wanted to pay homage too.

We each got it in the same spot, and we both LOVE it.

As small as it is, it only took maybe two minutes, but it was very uncomfortable. I've heard that wrist tattoos are very painful, so I was prepared for the worst.

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I'm sure you've already seen, but here it is:


We both love the tattoos so much. It's nice to have a tattoo that means something, is special to us, and we'll never regret.

It's very pretty! I almost got my last tattoo on my wrist, but a friend who had a wrist tattoo told me she'd never do it again, so I decided on my foot instead. I like the look of wrist tattoos, but it definitely has to be the RIGHT kind of tattoo and the one I got wasn't, so I'm glad I didn't get it there. Love that your tattoos are so meaningful to you too! Those are the best kind!

I want a wrist tattoo so badly, but I'm scared about being in a corporate world with a visible tattoo.

My sister & I are going to get the "Big sister/little sister" tatoo's as well, I love those. I want a tattoo on my wrist SO bad, but I don't want to have to wear a bandaid or wrist band at work. I've been thinking about getting it in white ink. That way I can still see it & no one else should really notice it unless I point it out. We'll see.
