are going to check out a tattoo shop (or maybe more than one) this Thursday and get some info about the shop and designs. Also, it`s likely that I will have a job again in the beginning of November (although it`s not completely sure yet), which means I can get my tattoo soon. I`m planning to pay for it with my first paycheck from this job :).
Side note: just talked to my mom on the phone. Like I said before: she doesn`t like tattoos. But I really want to keep her up-to-date on this a little bit, because I share almost everything else with her, so it feels bad not to talk about this. She actually reacted quite differently than I expected. I mean, I could hear in her voice that she doesn`t like it, but she seems to have accepted the idea that I`m going to get in anyway. Seems like progress. She also seemed to like the idea of my friend and I getting it together. That`s nice, because I feel quite strongly about getting it, and going through the process of getting it, with her.
