    Matching Tattoos

    A very close friend just asked if I'd get matching tattoos with them but I'm going to need help with placement. I already have tattoos on my breast, shoulder and butt. They don't have any. I want to say yes but I don't know where.

    Two Actually

    One of the tattoo's I'll be getting is the date of my mom's death. It holds a lot of importance for me and I want to remember it forever so what better way than a permanent reminder? The other one I'm getting is kind of silly. It's the Kanji for my old nickname, with the corner...
