My husband and I are 23 and 24. We just went to Lake Tahoe on our honeymoon for 4 days, and decided to get tattoos. I have been thinking about it for a long time, and he decided on getting one, kind of last minute. I got a dove on my upper back/lower neck with an olive branch and 1 leaf (symbolizing my 1 son) and the words Psalm 127:3...the Bible verse that talks about children being a heritage from the Lord. The whole tattoo is about the size of a baseball. My husband got an ambigram tattoo that reads Family one way and Forever the other way. Its on his inner bicep. You can't see my tattoo at all unless I have on a shirt that is cut lower than normal in the back. My husband's shows a little bit in a short sleeve shirt but that's it.
I know we are adults and that it is our bodies, but his parents reacted kind of badly when we showed them...and they are MUCH more laid-back than my parents. I'm really scared to show my parents and I'm afraid they are going to freak out. I know it shouldn't matter, but it does matter to me. I'm not regretting getting the tattoo because it is VERY meaningful to me and represents my son (even though he was a suprise baby at 20) being a gift from the Lord and has changed my life for the better, but my parents are just going to see it as ruining my body. Any advice would be appreciated!
And if you are going to suggest I just not tell them, that's going to be really hard because I take my son swimming at their house a lot.
