    Ironically, I have been passionate about not

    getting a tattoo because it's so permanent and I change my mind so often that I don't think a tattoo is a genius idea for me. But lately, I've been wanting one. I'm the type of person that if there's no logical explanation in doing something, I won't do it. I won't get a tattoo...
