Got myself a tattoo - finally!!!!

I have been tempted to go get a tattoo every time I see my husband and every time I see someone having something nice and meaningful done....months back, when we searched for something for my husband - I came across a picture of a mandala that just took my breath away and since then it has been in my head and wouldnt leave me I decided to do it!

Because I was scared of the pain, I told my dear husband to find someone to do it for me -, I could have changed my mind in no time.

Well...talking about a pain. It did hurt - but only when he was drawing the lines over my spine. I thought that I can bite through metal, thats how bad it was. Luckily, it didnt last long and the rest was a piece of cake!

Here is my tat, pic taken the same day when it was done:

I want to appologize to everyone

From the last virus attack I wrote about earlier, I am not able to leave comments on blogs....weird, I know....I cant even open my own posts here - it shuts off my Mozilla right if you leave a comment in the shout box, I will be able to visit back

This sucks big time :-(
