Would I Be Wrong If...

(Don't Judge Me)... I have had the sudden urge to get a tattoo since I miscarried our baby last week.

Maybe I am being hormonal...I dunno, but I really want one that says Mommy's Angel 02/28/11 near my shoulder blade because I feel it would be a way for me to deal with what happened...in a wierd way. My hubby and I are Christians and I am conflicted...BUT I am so stubborn right now in dealing with things how I want to deal with them that I am a little rebellious...Pray for me ya'll. (Your thoughts)

  • I would wait honestly. I'm not saying don't. But just wait a little while. If you put that on your body it's a conversation piece. Just be willing to talk about it when people ask. Don't take it the wrong way. Just food for thought. Nothing more.

    I'm so sorry! That must have been really hard. I hope you heal fast, and get pregnant soon! Hug!

  • I dont think thats an odd way to cope with your grief. I also dont think that being Christian has anything to do with it one way or the other. It might be therapeutic for you and you would always have the tattoo to look at when you think of your little one.

  • Give it some time. Rushing into any tattoo is never a good thing. You have to remember that the ink is permanently IN your body. Getting something that may one day remind you of you miscarriage or something you regret might not be such a good idea. Just relax and give it some time.

  • I would tell you the same thing I tell everyone... give it some good thought and if you still want to to do it after that, by all means go for it.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it. You'll never forget what you've lost, and that can be what gives you some closure. It's a nice way to memorialize. Do what you feel right doing. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • There is nothing wrong with a tattoo. If it is something that will make you happy each time you see it than go ahead. I would be reminded and sad if it was me each time I would see it. If you feel the need to change something of yourself, get that cute haircut your not sure if you can pull off. Maybe you just need a place for your little angel, you could place a special stone in your garden or get a special piece of jewelry in memory of her.

  • i would say wait until you're settled down a little bit more, not because i think it's wrong (i'm also christian and i don't have any kind of conflicts about tattoos), but because you want to give it alot of thought for the image, etc. i'm so sorry for you loss though....but i think that's a wonderful idea

  • I am so sorry this has happend to you, i cant imagine. Tattoos are permant and while yes you can get the removed the procedure is incredibly painful from what i hear. So i would have to say that you should make sure it is something you want, and if you do than go for it. If you feel this will help you cope and you will not regret it then, in my opinion, theres nothing wrong with it.
