Supermom: Tattoo Make-Over?

Local parenting blogger Michelle Lee considers a problem many moms in the Asheville area are probably considering these days: What to do about that once-youthful tattoo that just isn’t aging well.

Eleven years ago I got a tattoo on my lower back and two kids later (and of course eleven years) it’s not looking like it did when I first sat straddling a chair for two hours. I want to have it covered up. Problem is, covering it up would make it a bit bigger.

      Do you want the dictionary definition or an exposition on the aging hipster’s role in straight society, complete with musings on the mutability of the once-immutable art of body modification?

    Whew, thankfully I never ran in any certain circles.

      Apparently you did, or you wouldn’t be regretting your decisions later in life.

    AKA a “slit” barcode. The Urban Dictionary has several more colorful descriptions and reasons why one should not go down this particular youthful folly path.

      ha ha!

      I totally understand.

      I call it my “after my divorce” tattoo.

      I wanted one where it couldn’t be seen. My little secret. And that’s what I got. :)

    Like tramp stamp?

    “Yuck! Another term I cannot stand. :)”

    Yes, well it’s certainly not a flattering phrase. I prefer as a definition “a permanent reminder of a temporary fad.”

    This is why years ago, I decided to compile a list of tattoos I want, and leave them in my will for the embalmer.

    Doc at Mission E.R. said one in four tattoo victims has hepatitis. Saves time dating or picking food venues…
