i am getting a tattoo to honor my kids-a fancy heart with their initials in it. I want two smaller hearts on the outside. One for a miscarriage I had a few years ago, and the other for an abortion I had when I was 15. My DH says I should only get 1 smaller heart because the second was my choice! It was a choice I made a long time ago and it was the hardest thing ever but I still think about it almost daily. At the time I thought I was doing the right thing (and maybe I did). Do you think it is in poor taste to go this route? i just wanted something to honor all of my kids (born or not)!!
the tattoo i was planning has alot of scrollwork on the big heart and the little hearts would come out of the scrollwork so they would look like they are just part of the "main" tattoo. no one would ever know those smaller hearts symbolized anything unless I told them. The tattoo would be at the top of my leg so no one would see it unless i show them or when i am wearing a bathing suit.
thanks for the support--makes me feel better knowing there are people who understand--i just wanted the tattoo for me!
