Okay, I’ve always hated tattoos, Kady has one and I’ve constantly given her a hard time about it. So what’s one of the first things you do when you’re told you have a Terminal Illness? Answer, something you never dreamed you would consider.
I don’t know why it was just a crazy idea that popped into my mind, my brother-in-law Adam who has a lot of tattoos traveled down to be my special adviser for the weekend which was gratefully received. He vetted the place for me and assured me it looked reputable. I’d decided to get something in Arabic script done, the original plan was for it to say the names of my ‘pack’ – Kady and our puppies – but it really didn’t translate well into Arabic. So in the end I went for ‘To all the women in my life’. Sounds a bit cheesy but hey ho. Adam had something in Hebrew to commemorate the occasion also.
Wes at WH’Ink in Durrington was thoroughly professional, I explained how wet I was and he talked me through it all. Did a fantastic job and I’m even planning on going back now for another one!
